Human furniture (or forniphilia) is a form of bondage and sexual objectification in which a person's body is incorporated into a chair, table, cabinet or other piece of furniture. The term was originally coined by Jeff Gord.
Forniphilia is an extreme form of bondage because the subject is usually tightly bound and expected to stay immobile for a prolonged period. They are often gagged (see forniphilic gag) and/or placed in position where there is a danger of being smothered. Proper safety requires frequent checks of the submissive's well-being.
- François-Rupert Carabin, in the illustrated catalog for the 1893 Salon des Beaux-Arts, contributed two drawings of sculptures of women as part of chairs.
