A Modern Furniture Shop
A new furniture shop. This building has five floors full of all kinds of imported furniture, mostly from Southeast Asia. Many furniture shops have cropped up all over the city, but they are not all as nice as this one. As the living standard goes up, people are spending on buying new furniture and new houses. It used to be that when people bought a flat, they would take along their furniture from their old one. Then as people earned more and more, they got custom furniture made when they moved into a new house. As imported furniture started becoming available, now people are furnishing their new houses and flats with it. However, housing costs quite a lot more now as prices have gone up insanely. It costs more to buy a flat or a house than in many places in the US!!
