People were afraid of the ghost-like, odorless, colorless and invisible electricity. Electricity providers strived to help people realize that electricity is a safe source of energy, and electronics company tried to make electronic appliances closely akin to furniture or object so that people can feel friendly. Then at some point in history home appliances stopped being “furniture” and started being “electronics”, However, over the past two or three years, they’ve tried to make electronic appliances closely akin to furniture again.
