Then, some number of years passed—maybe three, maybe thirty—and it occurred to you that you haven't exactly achieved the home-owning or apartment-renting dream. That couch you're sitting on was the cheapest at Ikea, that bedframe came secondhand on Facebook Marketplace, and you up and bought the dining set after about two seconds of consideration at Target. And once you got them, you never really considered replacing them. Then, perhaps after months-on-end in your home and only your home, you were revisited by that dream of the good life, which got you thinking about owning furniture to be proud of, and owning it for a long time.
