    well im not sure if this is the right place to post this,
    i recently (well back in nov07) bought a townhouse, and here it is april 08 and i still do not have couches and dinner set, does it really take this long to furnish a house? its not really a prob. of money as much as it is to find the really nice stuff you want (and afford of course)
    ive furnished by bedroom well, my bathrooms, my kitchen, but no couches, no dinner table, no buffet etc etc.

    it took me a couple months, and even now i still need some great art for the walls. be patient, get good pieces or end up looking like any other asshole.

    Take your time. No need to rush, and buy quality stuff that's going to last rather than trendy shit that will break/break down over a short period of time.

    If you can afford it, get a custom furniture place to build you a couch/loveseat/chairs. The quality will be infinitely better than what you get at a chain store, and will look nicer too. Over the course of the life of the furniture, you'll pay less.
