Home accessories, as movable decorations, reflect the owner’s taste and create a personal atmosphere where they are placed. These items can break the boundaries of the traditional decoration industry, using handicrafts, textiles, collectibles, and things such as lamps, floral items, and plants re-combined to form a new concept. Home accessories vary according to the size and shape of the room space, the owner’s living habits, hobbies, tastes, and their economic situation.
