As a newbie who has just moved into a new home with my sambo, I was at a loss on where to buy furniture. First, everything is expensive in Sweden. Secondly, there is a long list of furnishing items that we have to buy since we had a bed bug situation and preferred to buy everything new. Thirdly, and most importantly, I did not want the entire house to be furnished with just IKEA or MIO furniture only.
