Furniture plays an important part in designing your home. So important, that without it, a house doesn’t look or function like a home.
And besides, there’d be nowhere to sit!
A house should be adorned with the right kind of furniture that, of course, should be functional and easy on the wallet. Guests should feel welcome as they step into the living room complete with a sofa, extra chairs, an impressive shelf maybe some warm soft furnishings.
In my case, I want to keep it cheap and practical (hello children!) and Ikea is my go-to store. But, let’s assume if the money is not an object for this matter, would you splurge a fortune to own the rarest and most expensive pieces in the world?
This is the kind of furniture that will be owned by privileged elites who treat money as a perishable item. Well, sit back, relax and hold on to your pockets, we’re sharing to you 15 most expensive furniture items in the world. And we just felt like switching places with the filthy rich kids just for the moment.
