Favorite Family Furniture and Heirlooms

This bedroom set belongs to my 94 year old grandmother. Purchased at a garage sale in Berwyn, Illinois in the early 1940s at the start of my grandparents' marriage, it is still some of the favorite furniture in our family.

There are those in my family who like to constantly upgrade and replace, to get rid of everything; there are those who hold on to everything (good or bad); and there are those who cherish a few items or sets throughout the years because of their quality and memories.

I hope this bedroom set stays with us for another 70+ years. For now, my grandmother wouldn't live with anything else.

What are some of your family's all-time favorite pieces of furniture?
