Flathead Borer Larva

This is a Flathead Borer, the larva of a wood boring beetle in the family Buprestidae.  Adults are often brightly colored with metallic elytra, and they are called Metallic Borer Beetles or Jewel Beetles. It is impossible for us to determine the exact species.  You do not need to worry about this larva feeding on your furniture, though there are reports of adult beetles emerging from milled wood and furniture as many as fifty years after the wood was harvested.  You can see more images of Flathead Borers on BugGuide.
