Last weekend, i think it was, we stopped at the local Scandinavian furniture store that is not Ikea. A pair of recliners that shared a wedge shaped arm rest cum table caught our eyes, and we sat down. Wow, incredible! As Christine boggled at the comfort, i stood up and checked the price, inner troglodyte chanting "Take home now. Take home now." And then i boggled. One chair was well over $3 grand. The suite was... well, wow.

It certainly puts the four new tires and front disc break that the mechanic identified as needed today in a new context.

I got an Ekornes recliner last year or so (a different model than in the link.) It was a huge splurge for one, but it is really comfortable. Sitting with my feet up is not good for my back, so I try not to use the footrest too often, but yes, wow.

It seems investing in something used day in and day out is a very wise place to splurge.
