I have an issue with the word "invest". Buying furniture, drapes, rugs etc is not an investment. An investment is something that will increase in value and can be sold for more than what was paid for it. Furnishings lose value the moment they are purchased just like a new car. We must realize that furnishings are purchases that we will use and enjoy but they are not investments. Using the word investment for the purchase of chattels is essentially doublespeak.

Just one item I am not on board with quality sofas can last 30 to 40 years. Styles, colors, and materials are ever changing. My mother had good quality sofas and all are in thrift shops today. We couldn't give them away.
