and bookshelves, iron maidens, racks, inexplicable carousels (people power generators, not horsey rides), candlabra, sconces, wells, etc.

I voted no but I want to! I actually like bringing greater detail to my table for my players. I try to make my maps for the rooms as "3D" as possible and when I can supplement that with actual pieces, it really enhances how my players react to encounters.
In my current campaign I have a Dragonborn Warlord/Cleric Hybrid, a Halfelf Invoker, an Eladrin Swordmage, a Human Rogue/Swordfigher specialist, a Halfling Rogue/Archer specialist, and a Tielfling Warlock. All the players love to use the terrain I provide. At the beginning of each encounter I make sure to specifiy what grants cover and concealment and what they have to do to move around/over/through the various things they find in the "space" that the encounter takes place in. It really enchances the cecision making for the encounter. The rogues often do what they like to call "Yoda Manuvers", the Dragonborn wields a spiked chain and likes to command the center of the battle so that he can "dispense" his aid to his companions while dealing out a whirlwind of hurt. The swordmage and invoker work as a team (the players are actually husband and wife in "real life" ) and have built their characters accordingly. They are constantly using terrain to aid them and thwart their opponents.
I would love to put out "real tables and chairs" for them to see and use, but alas, I have only so much money and time to paint

"Dungeon" is a verb now? Who knew?
I haven't dungeoned for 30 years or so. However, I do run occasional Blood and Swash saloon brawls. You NEED tables, chairs, beer mugs, carpets, Long John silver Impersonators, etc.
Not to mention bars and balconies and barrells.

Apparently, my vote should be "yes":

That dungeon is better furnished than my home! Sad

Voted no, but it's really not usually. It depends on how much time the lads are going to spend in the place and/or how tactical it becomes.

I don't dungeon, but last nite we set up a town for a WWII skirmish, rubble, but nothing else.

Strictly speaking, I don't put chairs or tables in dungeons, but mostly because typical dungeon furnishings are more racks and iron maidens
