I need furniture guidance please.

Where can I find a new fainting couch (like the one seen above but less fancy will do) for less than or around $500.00? Is that a pipe dream? I don't want an antique because I spent yesterday poking around in my cities plethora of antique shops for one, and they all smelled like someone had died on them (and some had so many suspicious stains it really made me wonder). I checked Ikea and didn't like the one option they had, and I've never purchased furniture on Amazon so I'm leery. Where should I begin my search? Have you seen new versions of fainting couches at any stores before, preferably chain stores?

DK/DC: Do you have an area of your apartment or house specifically set aside for reading? Can I see a picture of it? If you don't, can I see a picture of your ideal reading nook?

The dwarf album

I could have sworn when the first Hobbit movie came out, there was an official website for the singing dwarves, so you could listen to songs other than the ones from the movie. Did I imagine this? or was there really a band and an album? if so, where can i find the album?

What would you do...

What would you do if you saw a female stranger verbally abusing her 2 year old child in public? What would you do if her frustration increased and you saw her physically abusing this child? Do you confront her? How would you approach the situation? Would you call Children's Aid on this stranger?

Lights!

Does anyone know where to find novelty light covers for sale (just the covers, not the lights themselves)? Like snowflakes, shamrocks, etc.; preferably ones that fit over 3mm LEDs.
