Oh man that would opening up housing creative options to for things other then just weapon racks hanging on walls ect.
Imagine making a chair out of a bunch of inferno staves?
Don't fart on that chair.

I dont know if this would be hard to implement, but as I see it, all the textures are already there so a rack of cool axes or swords, or a cool Ebonheart dagger stabbed in the table would be awesome ;D
They could do this and even maybe release an armory house or (even upgrades that say add a new door to some existing houses and make them lead to a separate zone with a different limit for those who really want an armory)*.
Or even do what they have been mulling over since houses came out and increase the limit because we all got into the houses and insisted there wasn't enough space in the furnishing limit I have not heard anyone say "i have enough space in a home". Also there are several armor mannequin models in game now. and many many weapon racks in the world at large so all the models exist.
I would love OP’s suggestion, although it would be ideal to be able to display actual weapons and armor in homes, both because I think it would broaden appeal and utility of housing and because I would love to display weapons received from characters/quests that were important to my characters.
