We bought some new furniture. It's the first time I've ever bought furniture from a store with the exception of a futon. It felt oddly grownup. Most if not all of the furniture I've ever owned has been given to be someone else. We did ultimately go to Raymour & Flanigan.
They have a great selection and guarantee delivery in three days. We chose a matching couch and chair, a book case and a very basic bed frame. Everything should go smoothly on Thursday. The only concern I have is whether or not the couch will fit in the elevator. If it doesn't the store's moving guys will have to carry the couch up the stairs, which costs $20 a flight, after the third floor.
