In this case it again seems to make sense to design a single cancel  
button that understands this logic (which is what? go back to the  
parent resource? the previous page?) rather than trying to choose  
different furniture each time around; you can also get a fair bit of  
mileage out of the new-ish record identification features which let  
you say e.g. url_for @parent_resource and let the routing deal with  
generating the appropriate URL rather than manually calling the named  
route helper yourself.
