When I finally move to the tropics, I have decided I’ll take all my furniture with me. It’s not that I have particularly nice furniture, in fact quite a bit of it comes from skips, I’m just not interested in furniture. You do have to have some furniture in your house unless you want to stand up all the time and pile up your belongings on the floor. It may be an aid to fitness but not to lifestyle. I will stick with the furniture I have. I’m used to it and most of it works perfectly well. Whereas I have nothing against IKEA furniture, I don’t like going to their shop. It doesn’t make sense to throw out all my IKEA furniture here and then buy the same stuff again on the other side of the world.
