The article informs that one of the fundamental ways in which people express themselves is by the music they listen to or the art they have on their walls. Some friends are avid fantasy movie buffs so it's no surprise that a framed poster of Harry Potter and his friends stare down at them from the bedroom wall. Another deems dogs' playing cards while sitting at a dimly lit table is the height of art. It holds a lot of sentiment from his university days and the picture occupies pride of place in the living room of his bachelor pad. The fortunes of accessories have risen in the industry of late, but one of the oldest and most dependable add-on sales in furniture stores appears to be art.
