I bought a brand new living room set from a manufactured housing place that was going out of business. $275 for a couch, loveseat, and chair. It was display furniture that they put in the show homes on the lot.
After 3 yrs I gave that set to my son and DIL and bought a couch and loveseat set for $40 total! From Habitat Restore. My "TV stand" Is a very large and incredibly heavy antique buffet that I refinished. It was given to me along with an upright cabinet that i now in my stoveroom.
The 2 rockers we have were $150 each and handmade by an Amish man that we met at an old engine show. We bought those in 2000.
Our side lamp table is actually a night stand...part of a bedroom set we bought from a newspaper ad in 2002 or 2003 for $50 for the entire set. (bed, headboard, table, dresser, mirror)
That is my living room. $350. ($300 for the handmade rocking chairs, $50 for the couch, loveseat, table.)
