I have a large and spacious 230 sq ft studio that I just moved into and am still furnishing it. I managed to modify and repaint some hand-me-downs but now I need somewhere to sit. I plan on being at this place for probably at least a year. The place isn't big but I need somewhere to sit in front of my TV (which is really my old LCD with s-video input). I need something relatively small and hopefully something versatile enough to bring with me. I was thinking of getting something like this: http://www.moderncollections.com/ind...WPROD&ProdID=4 I would probably get the chocolate color since it is a classic look. The price is at the top end of my budget. I was thinking two chairs and a small tulip table in between. I don't know if I am going to get 2 of the Barcelona style chairs or if I will mix and match. The 30"x30" footprint is about as large as my place can take. Maybe could pair the Barcelona with something like this http://www.moderncollections.com/ind...ROD&ProdID=203 or http://www.moderncollections.com/ind...ROD&ProdID=159 I worry about the quality of the furniture. I have never bought furniture before really. Some of these chairs cost $5k, and this one costs about $1k. How do I know what is good? I have been to Ikea and while I have bought many things from there like shelving and wall decoration, I would never buy their sitting furniture, it is a complete waste of money. Even at Target a decent looking chair is $200+.
