I'm an adult that has really nice pieces a staple furniture that opts to IKEA on other items that may be temporary depending on where I live or work next.
You always need a good beed and sofa. I like ce my dresser and a closet it fit into as well as other items.
But unless I know I'm living in a house for 19 years I'm not dropping $5,000 on a dining table not including chairs. I live in dense cities.
These aren't actual items in my house but items I've been similarly criticized on by people with loads of money yet holding an ugly ass dining set from 1990 in their dining room.
Hate picture A as I now own a condo with a marble island but I've lived in really nice apartments where this was a way cool invention less than 3 years ago. Prep area and add two more seats when done for table. Nothing trashy about it.
The thing is, my whole upbringing furniture and items were really expensive and placed almost above me. I still have the full length mirror, 9ft wide and gold crested,
that my parents gave me at 14 when I got a private floor and bathroom. It can go anywhere but I would never buy for myself.
I have nice furniture that will last and then filler from, YES, IKEA!
whats wrong with that? It looks nice sometimes and usually just holds nice things.
Even with the best movers my mirror and bed have been damaged. Tiny scrapes by people who don't know value. I'm told by my insurance I have to hire fine art dealers and movers and can't sue regular movers.
The insurance has art appraisers come out to adjust the damage andnifni followed contract when having the mirror moved.
So, yeah. IKEA!
