From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Forniphilia is a subset 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 (of House of Gord).[1]

Forniphilia is an extreme form of bondage because the subject usually is tightly bound and expected to stay immobile for an indefinite period of time. They are often gagged 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.[2]
  • Allen Jones' sculptures Hat Stand and Table Sculpture, made in 1969, show semi-naked women in the roles of furniture.
  • The hentai anime Cool Devices features women used as furniture in the underground sado-masochist world of the first episode.
