What We Spend on Furniture

We ogle beautiful furnishings here at Apartment Therapy all the time, but many of them come with steep price tag. Most of us don't make all that much money, so are we just dreaming or are we spending more of our household income on furniture than your average Joe?
Another interesting piece of food for thought: This 2010 Visual Economics article shows that household spending was up by 6.5% within the first two months of that year. However, spending on furniture was down 6%. Seems when the going gets tough, the tough hold onto their old furniture.
What about you? Has your spending on furniture gone down in recent years? How does it compare to the numbers above? Being a design-oriented community, we're interested to see whether we spend more-than-average on furnishing our homes.
