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.)

Nicest but Cheapest Furniture Possible for a New Home?

Nicest but Cheapest Furniture Possible for a New Home? I'm looking for something more durable and nicer than IKEA (my furniture staple since college), on par with, but at a discount from the normal price of, Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel, West Elm, etc. I've had no luck at the Outlets for the previous stores. I've read about hotel liquidators and have heard about special wholesalers only available for designers in major cities, but I'm not sure where to find them in D.C. (current city) or El Paso (where I'm moving). Bonus question: Do you have an online designer (like Kelly and Olivia) that helped you?

Covering for TV stand doors?

I'm in the process of getting an entertainment unit built. Instead of glass, I'm thinking of putting something over the doors that would be dark (to hide the LEDs), allows my remotes to work, and still allows decent airflow. Any suggestions what would work here? Speaker fabric? Screen door mesh? Something else?
