Help me with the basics of furnishing my new bedroom!

I now am the proud leaser of an apartment, and more pertinently, of an unfurnished bedroom. Before I go out and say "this looks nice, I'll buy it," what are some good resources, tips, threads, or hacks for furnishing and decorating a bedroom or living space or the like? [more inside]

How to get Aeron chairs fixed on-site?

We have six Herman Miller Aeron chairs in varying states of disrepair in our office. Some need new parts and a couple don't tilt or raise properly, etc. Some were bought new and some were bought secondhand, and everything I've found online says to take them to a dealer, which I'd like to avoid (hassle, having no chairs for a while, etc). I'd like someone to come over and diagnose them and replace parts and/or fix them on-site (I'm in Manhattan). Anybody know a service that does this?

What kind of hardware would I need to convert the top of my desk to an adjustable sit/stand?

I'm really intrigued by the idea of a variable height sit/stand desk, but for a couple reasons, I'm probably stuck with my current utterly inconspicuous, heavy wood composite desk. Fortunately, the top comes off, so I think I might be able to modify the desk so that I can raise/lower the top independently of the rest of the desk. What kind of hardware would I need, and where can I buy it? [more inside]

Ideas for cheap, mobile furniture?

Furniture ideas for the perpetually mobile. For better or for worse, I've been changing living spaces about every six months. I'm sick of lugging furniture but don't want to live completely out of boxes. What are your ideas for cheap, compact, very mobile solutions for (at least) a desk, dresser, and full-size bedframe that doesn't require a box spring? Bonus points for book storage ideas and organizational pieces. Real furniture or makeshift (i.e. tupperware bins) OK. [more inside]

How do I get rid of brown spots/stains on white furniture?

How do you get brown spots out of white furniture? We have white dresser drawers that we just bought my daughter. They are high end wood dressers from a company called Pulaski. There is some kind of laminate on it because it is very smooth. We put a CD player on top of it and on the bottom of the CD Player there are little rubber like pads on it so that it will not scratch furniture. It is a common, regular CD player and the pads look common enough. Our own clock radio in our bedroom has the same kind of rubbery pads on the bottom. So anyway, it has been very humid, and within a week of buying this expensive set, I saw brown stains in the shape of the round rubbery pads on the dresser. How do I get them out? [more inside]

My cats have scratched deep claw marks into my roommate's furniture. Bummer.

My roommate has a rather nice piece of wooden furniture that my cats have scratched all up. It's real wood, basically just stained and maybe somehow varnished. What are my options for restoring it and how much are they likely to cost? (She is aware of the damage, so it's not like a sneak job.) [more inside]

Metrosexual but lacking bookmarking skills.

Some months ago I came across a site that, I think, makes products from bespoke designs by young designers, or at least makes such products available for purchase. I think (am almost certain in fact) that it is based in the UK. I cannot remember the site and no amount of searching turns it up. [more inside]

finishes to steel plate

I have several projects (furniture, doors) using steel. Painting them does not interest me; I like rougher, more transparent finishes. In the past, I have used clear varnish to protect against rust. Am looking for new ideas. Wax? Has anyone tried grinding and finishing?

IKEA budget, boutique hotel taste

Decorating a small flat in London on a budget without resorting to IKEA? I'm tired of having my place looking studenty and would like to pick up some nice, unique furnishings and accessories. I don't have a lot of space or money to work with, however. I know about Gumtree, but can you recommend some stores I can visit to get ideas as well as buy cool stuff? I live in W2 (which isn't exactly budget-friendly, I know.)
