Wayfair is really hit or miss. I bought my tv stand from there 4 years ago and it has been great. No chips, dings etc and it’s mainly metal. I bought a love seat from there and it was a pos

West Elm, Pottery Barn, Etsy (support small business) or honestly anywhere local that uses REAL wood vs MDF. Don't be afraid of the used market to score higher end stuff (a la Marketplace, etc)

Yea with Wayfair, Overstock etc you may get some real wood but they almost always contain MDF. The truth is real wood is heavy AF to ship. Now Ikea actually does use real wood a lot, but it's pine which is a soft light wood ... hence all my Ikea furniture has dents. I still prefer it to MDF because I can sand & refinish it if I care enough.

IKEA is going to be better/the same quality as any of those. If you want really great quality, go to a local furniture/Amish furniture place but your going to pay $$$$$.

Is there really no in between from IKEA at $300 to like west elm at $1500?

Look for the size, material, and color that you want in Google Shopping. Often times you will be able to buy it directly from the manufacturer and can also get an idea of their quality by looking at reviews on multiple websites.

Have you tried your local electronics store ? [like the non chain version of Best Buy] I got mine at the Container Store - it wasn’t meant as a TV stand but their stuff is first rate.

I have not, thanks!

I like target!

I mean, generally speaking I LOVE target. Not so much their furniture though :( . Maybe I am just bad at picking out furniture

How many of you who moved here for masters or on H1B are now millionaires? How long did it take for you to get here and what was your starting & current salary?

Have been through a few rounds of interviews and feel like they have all been great. Last two have been with leaders of various practices and that was supposed to be the end. Now have been asked if I’ll do one more interview with someone in a different specialized practice, and if im interested in that space. Should I take this as a good sign I’ll be offered and they’re trying to place me, or am I being placed on hold while they run down a list of those they liked more and awaiting accepts?
