It all turns out so higgledy piggledy confusing that you end up not bothering at all. And once you have seen those price tags, you’ve got cold shivers running down your spine. You run a mile before the temptation hits you. You remember how it was the last time you fell for it. This time you are going to get it right and this time you could be getting it right with gat creek traditional furniture if you’re out that way.
You still want high quality luxury but this time round you are more practically minded in your applications. The kids are out, all off to feather their own nests. This time round, there should be no prospect of little children, in their rough and tumble ways, damaging the fine furniture that you may have paid an absolute fortune for. It still costs you a bit. That is the price you pay for high quality. But this time around, the money is well worth spent.
Because whatever furniture you have purchased now has a purpose. Furniture is there to be used, not to be stared at. Chairs are there to be sat on, not standing empty.

It is all to the good as far as good old fashioned furniture for everyday use goes.
