Furniture At Last

After months of researching, purchasing, waiting, and assembling, my apartment is finally furnished. I've still got a few odds and ends to tweak, but I'm really happy with how well it turned out thus far. Check out the pictures.

It's just the perfect atmosphere that I was hoping for: it's perfect for having people over, reading a book, comfortably lounging around, and so on. The combination of the lamp, two levels of ambient lighting (in the top of the bookcases), and the overhead light gives lots of flexibility for the perfect amount/type of light. And virtually no technology in sight. Then when I want it, I've got a TV and stereo that is flexible for viewing from virtually anywhere in the room, including the kitchen.

The only downside is, all the plants will probably be dead within the month.
