Singular article with plural adjective + noun?
I've run into a few sentences that use a singluar "de" before a plural adjective + noun. Like, "Elle a de grands meubles." Why is it de in this case and not "des"?

yes, that's not a typo. There is a rule which says that in the case there is an adjective before the noun, you drop the article (des=de+les), hence "de".
"De grands choses", but "des choses merveilleuses".

There is a specific lesson for this topic, too.
