Legal Alien: A Scotsman in Montreal

 
Equip

Ok, so my room is a blank canvas so to speak... and here's my list so far of what I need:

Bed,
Mattress,
Chest of Drawers,
Bedside Table,
Desk,
Chair,
Light,
Fan,
Curtains/blinds,
Laundry hamper,

I've been looking at the ikea website, and am prob heading out there tonight... but I've been confused by the variety of mattresses on offer... any opinions out there as to whether foam or spring is better value?

I'm also thinking the bedside table and desk could be bought second hand, as they're fairly easy to transport...

Anything I'm missing?
