Furniture in Death Road to Canada is comprised of chairs, beds, desks and other destructible and throwable items. Destroying most furniture will turn it into pieces of wood, which can then be picked up and used as a Melee Weapon.
Zombies can be blocked with furniture. When a zombie's path is blocked by a piece of furniture, it will attack the furniture that is in the way to get to you.
When a character holds furniture, their stamina will be used up, in the same way that using Melee Weapons does. If a character holds furniture for too long, they will drop the furniture and become tired.
