What furniture would you buy for a 15 year old?

My 15 year old daughter needs new furniture and would like white. I've gotten estimates on Hooker Opus Designs Bailey and Stanley Young America 2nd Nature/Myhaven and would appreciate feedback on which to go with.

Got estimate from Lauters and Hooker less expensive of the two by about $800. I've read really mixed reviews about Hooker. Don't want to buy junk but also want to keep in mind that a) she's 15 and hopefully won't paint her furniture :) and b) will leave for college in 3 years. This doesn't need to last forever.

What would you do??

IKEA Hemnes series in white. Made out of solid pine, so no glue fumes.

Cheap, solid, and won't break the bank.

Thanks very much. We looked at Ikea this weekend -- it's definitely in the running and the price is right.

15 year old.....

Now keep in mind I don't know if this is going in a $500,000 McMansion or a $50,000 fixer upper.

For ease of finding the stuff go with the Signature Design series by Ashley. It works. It should be cheap. It is generally particle board but what the heck, either she will take it with her when she moves out or she will not want it.

Perdue Woodworks http://www.perduesinc.com/default2.asp is generally about the same price and made in America. They just ship slower somehow.
