Hello, all. Here's the scoop. I'll keep it short. I'm looking to move out of my parents home. Yes, I'm 21 and cannot take it anymore. I'm sure they cannot take it either. My father owns a few apartments and agreed to give me a good monthly deal on one. The problem is that we live in a cheap, semi poor town and these apartments appeal to the native folk. IE: they're on the semi-dumpish side. I'm going to ask if I can redo one apartment by recarpeting, painting, cleaning, etc etc etc and make it all nice. I want to plan ahead and feel like looking at some contemporary furniture. I don't want to break the wallet. Heck, I have no wallet to break. Pieces I'd need would be a couch, recliner/other living area chair, coffee table, end tables, computer desk/normal desk to hold the pc, tv stand, component stand or an all in one HT stand, lamps, etc. I don't want anything too wacky/"artsy." I'm happy with either medium to dark wood, and maybe glass if the design and price is right. I'd describe my preference as 'neutral contemporary.' I could spend all day on google searches, but most want $1,000 for a coffee table. I'd like to spend as little as possible, without the furniture looking like it's made of plastic. Any online links are appreciated. BTW, I've never stopped at a pier1. Do they charge an arm and a leg?
