The Furniture in a Writing Center

If your goal is for an harmonious environment that encourages community, collaboration, and free-thinking, which furniture or furniture groups do you think would best help accomplish that end?

FENG SHUI

Each Feng Shui element has unique properties. Take "water," for instance. Water as in trickling fountain, can signal networking, communication, professional opportunities and wealth, while running sink or toilet water that is just wasting water may signal loss of money or poor health.

"Wood" promotes development and creative energies. You can use wooden objects to promote motivation, inspiration and passion without overwhelming your home.

Since "metal elements" are transmitters or conduct energy, introduction of metal can generate attention and transmit energy to that area.

Various types of metals are considered very precious for their associations with health—for example, many people wear copper bracelets. But if one uses too much metal in a space, it may attract too much energy which can be quite destructive.

The "Earth"itself has solidity and permanence to it, and the element of earth appropriately represents these qualities of stability, permanence, and home.This can be necessary in a space that is too full of movement.

The element of "fire" is considered the most powerful of all five elements and represents energy and passion.
