Graham sent in a good question:I recently moved into my first apartment, and since I am now completely on my own with no roommates, I have had to buy all my own furniture. Long story short; I live in a building where I am not permitted to paint, so I am stuck with white walls. I purchased the walnut CB2 Movie Sofa over the weekend and I would like a chair that goes with it...

...I'm not opposed to Ikea, but I'd rather spend money on something that has a name attached to it for resale value.

We're thinking this sounds like a good place to inject some vintage style to the room. The Movie Sofa is a nice choice - a flexible piece that will work with most styles. So we'd hit the Scavengers each day and go for something a bit unusual that really speaks to you. For example, for the price of one new lower-end armchair, you could add two used Bertoia side chairs to the mix, which would definitely retain some value.

Readers, what do you suggest? Share your ideas with Graham in the comments...
