I have 2 sentences:
1. There is a lot of furniture in this room.
2. There is much furniture in this room.
Usually we use the 1st sentence, don't we? But I've read somewhere that the 2nd sentence is ok.
The problem here is that I don't know when it is used.
Please help me to figure out this problem.
#1 is more natural.
'Much' is more commonly used negatively:
'There is not much furniture in the room.'
