Since we moved into our house in early December, we emplaced our furniture around a variety of holiday decorations, including a Christmas tree. After those decorations came down (eventually :-), we determined there was a distinct gap in the dining room where the tree had once gone, and which none of our existing furniture adequately resolved.
Therefore, our Valentine's Day gift to the family was a grandfather clock, which filled the space marvelously without breaking the bank (trust us to find a pressboard grandfather clock!)
Oh, and for your BBC English lesson of the day, particle board is called "chipboard" in the UK :-)
