Living Room Wish List - The Furniture Edition | Lifestyle

You may have seen my previous few posts on bedroom wish list items, and my recent apartment renovation posts, which have got me thinking a lot about the little things (or not so little!) that I need to furnish my apartment. We do have some old furniture there that are hand me downs, but it's always nice to have your own furniture to make a place your own. 

Between me and the hubby, we have a lot of stuff that we've accumulated separately over the years that now resides in storage (my parents attic). We don't want to get rid of it all, a lot of it are hubby's important journals and architecture books, and a lot of my stuff are cute accessories and furnishings I've collected over the years. We need somewhere to display our things, rather than just putting them away in a cupboard; because these items are what makes us who we are. 

I've been checking out Furniture Plus Online for inspiration and ideas of what we can use to display our belongings, and here is a little wish list I've compiled. As I say in every single post that I write about our apartment, it's dark, and small, and I want to try and create as much light in there as possible so I'm sticking to lighter woods, and Furniture Plus Online offer the best quality solid oak and pine. Perfect. 
1. Mobel Oak Mounted Widescreen TV Cabinet - £399. In China the TV is mounted on the wall, or on a wall mounted TV stand with a drawers and shelves underneath. This is the first time I've actually seen one of these in the UK so I was delightfully surprised! | 2. Mobel Oak Large 3 Drawer Bookcase  - £439. Matches perfectly with the TV cabinet, and I love things that match. It's the perfect size for hubby's books, and with drawers at the bottom for all our paperwork too. | 3. Mobel Oak Twin Pedestal Computer Desk - £519. I thought it would be nice to finish our living room off with a desk, now we don't have a lot of space in our living room and it'll be a multipurpose office too, so this desk is an ideal space saver where we can both work together and have space to safely store our things from little hands!
