7.23.7 Placing furniture

(See HELP FURNITURE, HELP FURNITURE SELECTION, HELP FURNITURE PRICING,
     HELP FURNITURE COMMANDS, HELP FURNITURE DECAY, HELP FURNITURE RETURNS,
     HELP FURNITURE RELOCATION)

** warning: this is not about how to put furniture in a room, or locate it
somewhere, or drop it. To drop furniture into a location, please refer to HELP
FURNITURE.

Some limited combinations of furniture pieces may be placed near each other to
make more pleasing arrangements. Just PLACE your item near some other item, or
near NOTHING, and you're off and running!

Note: You must first DROP the item before you can arrange its placement. 
      Dropping is different from placement, and follows different rules
      which are outlined in HELP FURNITURE.

Who may place
-------------
For personal furniture, in a private home, the owner only may place.
For organisational furniture -
 - houses: house leader only.
 - cities: officeholders.
 - orders: those who have privilege to erect shrines.


Commands
--------
PLACE <furnitureitem> NEAR <otherfurnitureitem>
PLACE <furnitureitem> NEAR NOTHING


Details
-------
You may place as many items as you want near a single other item. So A and B
and C and D can all be placed near Z.

To clear a placement, just PLACE item NEAR NOTHING.


Meanings
--------
Only some combinations are currently defined, as listed below. For example,
when you place a table near a tapestry, it will appear to be 'sitting beneath'
that tapestry. Or when a table is placed near a rug, then it will appear to be
'sitting upon' that rug.
