Model Answer:
We buy many essential products in our daily lives to make our lives a bit more comfortable except, of course, not all of those products leave any lasting impression on us in the same way.  But, today, I would like to talk about one such product that actually made me feel happy.

Well, the product, I want to talk about is a swivel chair – an expensive swivel chair that is. Now, before I go to brag about my “choice of an expensive chair”, I must admit that I am more of a “cheap” customer.  In other words, I like to buy “cheap” things, obviously because I like to save as much money as possible whenever making a purchase.  So, despite me being a “cheap” customer, why did I go for an expensive chair?  

Well, the answer is that this 2 feet tall and golden brown “beauty” was in the “sale”.  There was another reason for which I decided to buy this shiny-looking chair.  It was made out of a very highly-calibrated stainless steel and comfortable foam. And I thought that it would complement my study desk (actually a gift from my elder sister to commemorate my entrance to the university) perfectly well.  In fact, I would even venture to say that “it was a match that was made in heaven” because the contrasting colour of those two pieces of beautiful and elegant-looking furniture was simply mind-blowing, to say the least.  By the way, this classy-looking chair was not only beautiful but also was built very strong.  To tell how it really was, I used it for a good 3/4 years time, and yet it didn’t show any sign of wearing or tearing.

Anyway, I was really very happy after buying this swivel chair, mainly because it felt very comfortable, no matter how long I was sitting on it.  Besides, the elegant design and look of that chair complemented the other furniture at our home, no matter where it was sitting on.  All in all, it was a great purchase.
