my recent move was a small and a big one- i came with relatively little, as my roommate had a fully furnished apartment minus my bedroom furniture, so there was a lot that needed to be purchased.
picking everything out has been a fun and simultaneously arduous process, especially when i saw the last couple credit card statements!
my new place primarily looks like one giant ikea ad, with a few indulgent exceptions, one that i am particularly in love with:
we purchased this beautiful, well-crafted, solid walnut coffee table off etsy from eastvold furniture, customized to our size specifications. matt was responsive, and easy to work with. even though we were originally sent the wrong sized coffee table, he sent a replacement and rectified the situation professionally without much trouble on our end. i really appreciated his high level of customer service and friendliness.
this classic mid-century coffee table has been something i've been wishing for years, and we decided it was an investment... into our adulthood...or something?
admittedly, owning something so nice is a bit stressful. so my bffbf immediately ordered a custom glass panel to put over the top of the wood. while it detracts a bit from the beauty of the coffee table, it's nice to have the added protection.
maybe one day the eastvold credenza will be in the budget, but until then, a girl can dream.
