Do you ever find yourself staring at a lovely piece of furniture, and then thinking, "I'll get this when I finally buy my home!" And then wander off to say, Ikea, to furnish your rental? Which makes us wonder (in a very Carrie Bradshaw way, of course): What comes first, the Womb Chair or the first mortgage bill? And while we're in a nosy mood, what was the first big furniture purchase you've made? (We're still paying off our Womb chair...) Photo from Knoll.
