As for furniture, I usually check eBay or different garage sales. I usually find some worthy items there. Some of them can be unique but the owner doesn't appreciate that. I bought vintage chairs and renew them a little last year. Now they perfectly suit my contemporary rugs from the DorisLeslieBlau I bought several years ago. I guess the value of those chairs has increased, but I do not want to sell them anymore. I put a part of my heart into them.
