The chairs were an old garage sale find my mom got for $4 a piece. We had them recovered, and they still cost less than a standard, less comfortable chair from IKEA.

The old Expedit bookcase from IKEA (at least 12 years old at this point and still going strong) to showcase the library and camera collection.
