Sturdy furniture for the often-moving.

We may be moving every 3 years or so.
Yes, we've seen this question
, but it's not quite it.
We're past the Ikea stage, and we'd rather have decent, sturdy furniture that can be easily assembled and disassembled multiple times. It should fold flat or fit into boxes. The flat pieces or boxes should be light enough that two people can move it up and down stairs without a problem. Bonus if we wouldn't need to hire professional movers, we could just rent a van/SUV (not a truck). Less concerned about price, far more concerned that our apartments not look like dorms/frat houses/temporary living and that the furniture lasts.
Example item: the 3-shelf bookshelves that fold into themselves and are easily covered in saran wrap.
So where/what should we be looking for? Keywords? Specific stores?
Note: This is not about renting a furnished apartment or selling and buying furniture every time we move.
