It's silly to have furniture you can't use, especially wood furniture, though I might lose my mind a little if someone puts a cold beer bottle on a piece of wood furniture.
A lot of the crazy Nakashima prices are for large and unusual one-offs. The more common stuff (table and chairs) can be had for a reasonable dollar. New chairs are about $600-700 at DWR made by Knoll. I have no idea which class that is but it is the starting point for a decent chair.
