Howdy jack, i have received some housin' item drops, it was an extra pleasant surprise, to be sure! now, how bout no more 1 gold return from them chests! can ye pass that request along?
Ratbeard has responded to this issue. He says that the 1 gold chests are a result of something else being inside them, like a piece of gear or a housing item. So if you get a 1 gold chest and didn't get any items, that's a bug. Otherwise, it means you just got something to vendor, use, or display!
Also, got my first housing drops in the game last night: wall paper and flooring from Skull Island. Not terribly exciting but the fact that my lvl 11 Witchdoctor was getting things that early is a good sign for the rest of the game!

Pillows seem to be very popular dropped items. I guess someone hit a pillow surplus shop or something. That's fine (money's money when you have enough cushions around the place), but I wouldn't mind being able to pile them up much as Vadima has done in her grotto.
Failing that, it'd be fun to be able to have a massive pillow fight with all my crew when we're at home.
