Many times in addition to being functional, we want the things in our homes to have a certain appearance. The appearance may be specific to the object or room, or it may be general to the overall home. The desired appearance may be a style, like "modern", or a mode, like "playful". You might want an object to standout as the central point of focus in a room, in which case the other objects in the room should probably be less attention getting.
