Model Answer:
I live in an apartment and there are various types of furniture there. Some are purely utilitarian purposes and some are for beautification reasons only. To me, my wardrobe is very useful furniture that I would like to talk about.

The wardrobe I have is big and has 5 drawers. As far as I recall, I bought it 3/4 years ago from a large furniture shop at (...say a furniture market name....). This piece of furniture is a very handy furniture for me. I keep my dresses organised at the bottom three drawers. The second drawer from the top is the place where I keep my very personal belongings including my diary and keys. The top drawers are used for keeping important documents. I keep my academic documents,money receipts and warranty papers of different newly purchased devices in this drawer. All of the drawers are can be locked and this gives some additional security and privacy.

I consider this piece of furniture very useful for me and that's why I like it. It is a good looking furniture that matches with the design and colour of other furniture of the room as well. If I had not owned this furniture it would have been very difficult to keep my clothes arranges, valuable documents secured. I have placed my CD player at the top of the wardrobe and the CD's are placed inside a drawer. So you can guess how useful and utilitarian this furniture for me as I'm not using it only for placing dressed in the drawers.  
From the time I bought it till now, this piece of furniture has been proven to be a very useful one for me.
