I've purchased my living and dining room furniture but i'm still debating what to get for the bedroom. What do you guys think of the high-gloss exotic wood veneers being used in some contemporary italian furniture these days? Will it go the way of the laquered furniture of the late 80s? I find myself a bit undecided on whether i'd want to own that type of furniture. The finish certainly has "wow" factor, but i wonder if i'd tire of it. Then again, it's certainly less dull than the wenge finish that's present in 70% of contemporary furniture. I've decided to use the room just off of the living room and connected by french doors as the bedroom instead of the actual bedroom because it's much bigger. Do you think that I should stick to a "plain" dark wood finish since my bedroom connects to the living room which features mostly dark brown furniture? This is what my gut is telling me, but some of the finishes i've seen are just so pretty.
