    • I love Ethan Allen.  My dining room table and chairs and hutch are from there, but much too expensive to buy anything there now.

    • I love out-of-the-way “finds.” Antique stores, junque shops, shabby chic type stuff.

    • Ethan Allan is fine but my father in law when he was living managed one of the finest furniture stores in the southeast I would say. It was called Richard’s Furniture and it was in Augusta, GA.  It had THE nicest, most expensive, well built furniture you could ever find! When Bryce Newman, the owner and a very wealthy man at that died, his wife sold the store to this mother/son duo who didn’t know a thing about running a store.  My father in law retired and the store eventually closed up.  I have some very nice pieces from that store and  will treasure them always.  

      Frankly I have not found any store around that measures up to my liking.  We did buy a nice leather sofa from Lazy Boy.  So far I’ve been pleased with it.  But the rest of my stuff is antiques. So....I really have no clue.  I’m just funny about furniture! And I know that sounds “uppity” but my father in law spoiled me on the nice furniture.  I do love antiques though.

    • I haven’t had the pleasure of buying “GOOD” furniture since we always had big dogs and rambunctious kids. But I do like Lane, LazyBoy and Pottery Barn.

    • In the past I’ve had some furniture made. I’d design it and take my plan to a cabinet maker
      and get exactly what I wanted. And I’ve made a few pieces myself.  

      A couple of nice furniture stores in our small area have closed, and a Ashley Furniture has bought out one where I’ve bought furniture in the past. Since I shop locally to support our local economy, I’m going to head there and hope I can find what I want when it’s time.

    • This got me thinking about my furniture.  We did buy an entertainment center from Haverty’s about 13+ years ago..after my father in law had retired.  We bought that and a little side drop-leaf table.  Still have the little table but I gave the entertainment center away. It held up but I just wanted something different. I actually bought this black tv table from Target that I’m not happy with...not the table itself but the look.  So..I’m going to look for something else and have the tv mounted.  But all the other furniture is either furniture we bought in an estate sale, furniture we were fortunate to be able to buy at a DISCOUNT...at my father in law’s store, or furniture that we inherited from my grandmother.  

      So....when I went shopping for a new sofa....I really researched the different stores...and made them turn the sofa over so I could see how it was made underneath.
      I did buy a sofa...paid $1000 for it 10 years ago...at Haverty’s (I think they are no longer in business) and it was a piece of crap.

      Cathi :  I would love to have furniture made to my specifications! Neat!

    • It’s amazing..being in the business...how furniture stores come and go...depending on your taste, style , budget...there are options as well as where you live..though so much can be shipped anywhere..and I mean anywhere...two years ago a couple from Australia came over and bought a ton of stuff..and nothing was inexpensive...but with all this in mind...I still love Pottery Barn and yes Ethan Allen has a nice selection...I’ve sold many different manufacturers...but what is important to me..is the timeliness of their delivery’s...a certain manufacturer comes to mind..that I will not mention ..they had some great stuff...but their customer service and on-time delivery was so bad....I would never go their again...so do your homework...and when my memory serves me better (this cold is still with me)..I will report back with some other manufacturers...retailers..happy shopping ladies

    • Mary, as it turned out it was about the same as could be bought at a furniture store if they sold the pieces I had made. And the quality is top of the line.  

      Good idea to have a sofa turned over to see the construction of it. I like this tip as I will be buying one when I move.
