I’m definitely guilty of picking up a bunch of knick knacks at thrift stores and flea markets without seriously considering the bigger, more expensive pieces. A lot of that has to do with the fact that we don’t have a car, and taking furniture on public transit is a nightmare (trust me, we’ve transported a desk chair and a Solair chair this way – not fun).
Anyway, when we moved in to this apartment a year ago (!!!) we had a HUGE white floor and were lucky enough to inherit a beautiful Persian rug that covers the living room floor perfectly. More recently, Adam spotted a beautiful handmade rug at a garage sale, and we scored it for $40. Last night, we picked up more rugs for our kitchen. It’s kind of fun to be buying more sophisticated pieces that can grow with us as our tastes change. Have you bought anything lately that you can see in future living spaces?
