Apartments can either be rented or owned. It is true that folks in NYC tend to renovate places they are only renting. That is usually because they plan on being there for a while and theey want the space to be what they want it to be.

I have to say that I am one of the people that liked the before better, but I wouldn't bother to post just to say that. What I wonder, Ben, is why you used such a busy pattern when your inspiration piece is so serene. I might have thought about using a raw silk wallpaper and a pale wash on the original front, and then changing out the legs the way you did. That piece would follow your inspiration more, and you probably wouldn't get tired of it. I love pattern, but not in furniture, it doesn't wear well.
