The New York Times recently reported on the trend to "accessorize" furniture with items such as giant charm bracelets. According to the article,
The idea that furniture should wear jewelry may strike some people as, well, nuts. But the notion behind it — that the kind of personal style associated with fashion can and should be expressed through home accessorizing, in ways that go far beyond throw pillows — has become a guiding principle of the furnishings industry.
Funny—I was under the assumption that the artwork we choose, the family photos we display, and the furniture and wall colors we decide upon, showcased our personalities.

What do you think? Any interest in this home accessories trend? Or do you think it's ridiculous, too?
