Robert Walters, head of e-commerce at The Furniture Market, said: "We were curious to discover how adventurous the British public were when it came to experimenting outside of the bedroom.

"We all fill our homes with an array of different furniture, decoration and belongings, but we were intrigued to find out if any of these products get used for other purposes than what they are originally intended for.
