At the bookstore the other day I flipped through Good Bones, a book about the seven essential pieces of furniture that you should buy and keep for a lifetime.
I was pleased to see a demilune table- I have one in teak, that I paid too much for, probably, but that I really love.
But the rest of the stuff threw me off. A dresser, obviously.
Wait…You have to write a book to tell people to buy a chest of drawers?
A loveseat? ummm…I want a big couch that several people can flop on, especially as two of my favorite people to flop with get bigger and taller.
Bookshelves, a necesity for me, don’t get a mention in the book. Entertainment center… likewise not in the book. Coffee table? No. Rocker/recliner? Not in there.
So, what are your 7 essential pieces of furniture- if you were starting over, what would be the 7 first things you would get?
