In the meantime, Chad has posted a wishlist of affordable modern furniture for his affordable modern home. The result is a curated round-up of the most attractive and functional items from the forest of knotty pine that is Ikea; and select plastic, wood, and metal offerings from more upscale places like Blu Dot and Offi. Chad's list is something that doesn't really exist elsewhere: It's like having a personal furniture shopper with an eye toward budget, longevity, and enduring design. If you're on the hunt for a shortlist of inspiring interior, check it out.
