Can you tell us about your furniture? Our furniture is mix of heirlooms, souvenirs from my travels, & antique store finds, with a dash of Craigslist freebies & IKEA basics thrown in for good measure. I can sense a pile of furniture on a sidewalk with a "free" sign attached to it from miles away. At age 40, my husband & I still haven't "settled down" yet so we don't have much "big commitment" furniture in our apartment. When we were childfree and living the dot-com high-life in San Francisco, we splurged on custom-made, down-stuffed sofas from Crate & Barrel, an antique dining table & chairs, and expensive electronics. We move around a lot and we have young kids so we've forgone the fancy furniture for pieces that work. Our IKEA couches are leather and can be wiped down with a damp cloth. The dining table is stored at my brother's house. Our china cabinet with my mother's & grandmother's china, crystal, & sterling silver pieces that were passed down are in storage, too.
