Where do you buy your furniture?

Looking to browse through some more furniture stores this weekend, as I'm moving into a new apartment this week.

I don't mind going to Ikea for the little things, but I really hate when you can tell exactly where something is from, I'd it to be more personalized, you know?

Anyway, here are some stores I've checked out so far:

- Ikea
- Structube
- Urban Barn Oulet (crazy good deals)
- Wayfair

Any one-off places that would be good to go browsing through today? Mainly looking for living and dining room stuff (coffee table, lounge chair, dining table, buffet, etc).

If you have a bad boy near you I find they have decent furniture and good sales.

when I was young, I bought most of my stuff from IKEA, their stuff looks nice and all, but not very durable long term (particle boards)

when we got marry, we bought our bedroom set from Bombay and a few items (always on sale), good solid furniture

now, we get most of our stuff from Costco, good solid furniture and really good price especially when its mark down for clearance

Pretty much Urban Barn and Crate and Barrel, if you like their style.

Checked out their site. I've been reading mixed reviews, but they have an Eames replica for like $800, that's pretty damn good. I'd appreciate any feedback from someone who bought one (their "Elliot" chair).

Costco because of the return policy, though the selection is somewhat limited and always changing, and I've had quality issues with the less expensive items which is why the return policy is key.

Do you want something nice? Might want to try mennonites, if you have any closeby. You'll spend some cash, but you'll have something good.

Have you tried looking at Ikea hacks? It's amazing what people do with their basic Ikea furniture. You can find what you like at Ikea, research any upscaling or hacks and you can indivdualize your Ikea purchase. For instance, the things people have done with the simple LACK table is amazing!
