Home without furniture can be compared to a body without a soul. Earlier furniture was considered as a luxury that could only be afforded by businessmen and people with extravagant spending habits. Also earlier the furniture was so heavy and had complex designs that cleaning them meant a day full of struggle and if u had to move one for some reason it meant gathering all the people of the house for the task.

Having a furniture specific to every room has become a must these days though it hardly matters that how much each of it is used every day given to the fact that most of us remain out for earning our “bread and butter”.

In these cases furniture just becomes a burden which you have to carry with you and also have to be care full while transporting it. So keeping that in mind here’s a list of furniture ideas for your house which are made of light wood and also do not burn a hole in your pocket.
