Where's good for Christmas tree decorations that aren't cheap and nasty but don't break the bank? Preferably online.

Ikea have a range coming out in the new year in collaboration with HAY that may or may not be good. What do you need? Sofas? Beds? etc?

Bed, wardrobe(s), sofa, drawers, tv stand, basically all the main stuff.
also want a sofa bed in the 2nd bedroom to make it more of a second lounge/office rather than having a bed in there and being a unused space 99% of the time.

i have a fair bit of the smaller things like mirrors, lamps and all that good stuff

Muji for the basics. It's like Ikea but it doesn't make you want to kill yourself as much.

Then try to mix in a piece or two of real furniture bought used when you find a decent bargain. Muji even sell a range of real furniture now but for the price I'd rather get used Herman Miller when it comes up.

Where do you live deuce? Some places have furniture co-ops where used furniture gets donated and sold back to the public at cheaper prices - have a search around your city/town, i furnished my place this way with some good quality stuff cheaply

Futon Company for the sofa bed, we've had one for years and it's bombproof.

Found a lot of decent stuff on eBay when I moved into my place from the brands mentioned above, A+ returns, old stock etc, so worth checking, always lots of vitra eames etc around too
