Aww, I really love this entry. It reminds me so much of my former (even tinier) NYC apartment. I know from experience that furniture layout in such a tiny rental place is really tricky and limited. Wall outlets, cable jacks, vents, dimensions, etc. often prevent you from have the more preferable layout. People would always come into my place and suggest changes, not realizing that I'd tried every conceivable arrangement and weighed the pros and cons of each way before finally deciding. I'm not sure if that's the case here, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Laure, is that a walker next to the cardboard box?

I could not agree more about the concept of "placeholder" items. Most of the apartments I lived in post-college were filled with (IKEA) placeholder items that were never replaced and which were thrown out every time I moved, because they fell apart when you tried to move them anywhere. In my current apartment, almost everything that's come in will be going out with me because it's stuff I waited for, hunted down/built/refurbished/saved for.
