Lavish Living: This Is Us, 30 Years From Now

Lavish Living: This Is Us, 30 Years From Now Posted on February 18, 2014Leave a comment

There is nothing as wondrous as the vast magical garden in the middle of Manhattan, especially if seen from your two floor duplex, sitting in your living room with a glass of Macallan in your hand. It’s one of those moments that only few dare to dream of, and even fewer actually get to experience. Yet, we foolishly still dream to one day set foot in this apartment, sit on that couch, pour ourselves a glass of whisky and get kicked out by the actual owner.

Because let’s face it: will we ever have $26.5 million to spend? But then again it’s probably worth it. Five bedrooms all with connecting bathrooms, a walk-in closet and an incredibly tasteful interior. The living room has a glass dining table in front of the long wine cabinet, where I can already imagine eating apple beignets on New Years Eve looking out of the window at the fireworks or how the families are ice skating in Central Park while drinking a glass of the best wine available.

But let’s not forget the beautiful gunmetal staircase leading up to the second floor, complete with three beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms that overlook the rest of New York. Everywhere you go there’s a window to look out of, so make sure you’re not scared of heights!

Below more imagery of the beautiful apartment:

Getting good deals on something you need is something that most people appreciate. When the deal is on furniture, you know that you’ve got to jump on that right away! So this article is here to help you find out how to get furniture that can enjoy without too much money or time wasted. Here are some great tips.

Before purchasing a piece of furniture, always open drawers and doors. You should not purchase a piece of furniture if the drawers do not open all the way and close evenly. Make sure the doors stay open and close properly. You should also check the knobs or handles to make sure they are properly attached.

Choose your furniture in function of your lifestyle. If you have children or pets, you should buy furniture that is stain resistant. Choose darker colors so stains or scratches are less noticeable. If you do not have pets or children, do not hesitate to purchase some lighter colors if this is the style you want.

Check Craigslist for deals. There’s often a lot of furniture that’s given away for absolutely nothing, other than your expense to pick it up! That’s a huge deal. Why do people give furniture away? They’ve decided to upgrade, and it can cost a lot of money to hire someone to get rid of the older piece. Take advantage of these situations.

If you want to make a truly environmental statement, buy furniture made with recycled wood. This not only saves trees, but often the wood pieces are available in sizes and widths not possible from managed or young forests. This means you get unique furniture that is as good for your style as it is for the Earth. Wood is often recycled from old buildings and structures, remnants from historical logging periods, landfill scraps and even retired orchard trees.

The suggestions in this article are going to make it much easier for you to go out and get furniture. Furniture is something we need in our lives, and something that truly makes our house our home. Make sure to use the tips and you’ll save money and time on things you need and enjoy.
