I am sorry for all the discourse you are dealing with.  And although i hate to throw the ball back in to your court, I need to do that for a second.  What does your divorce agreement state as to the furniture?  Does it consider the furniture "separate property" rather than "marital property" which is what I think that it really is here?  Then although I can surely understand your being quite annoyed about his not taking the stuff sooner, your options are to fight him in court about the furniture (do you want to consider it abandoned?  that is tough) and spend a lot on lawyers fees or just give it to him pursuant to the agreement.  Good luck.
