Furniture - where do you shop?

Since you bitches take offense at Pottery Barn, Ikea, Crate & Barrel and Restoration Hardware.. Where you do get your furniture?

The side of the road, flea markets, dumpster diving.

Buying new and shoddily made furniture is so declasse. Luckily I've inherited some very special antique pieces that have beenin the family for generations.

They remain with me here in Mother's basement.

Any tips for getting out Chee-to stains?

by Anonymousreply 907/31/2013

OP, your examples are fine for people who need to fill a room safely. There are such people; they have other interests. Don't judge.

If you love furniture, you'll find yourself hitting antique malls. They cull the crap.

Auctions, estate sales, and thrift stores are good for gamblers, but you really need to accept the vibe before going or else it's a waste of time.

Warning: buying antique furniture off the internet is dangerous because all wood photographs beautifully - even if they ruined it with varnish stain.

R5 Absolutely hilarious. I'll bet that you entertain on Flora Danica china in that beautiful basement.

My furniture is all handmade by expert craftsmen in the Arts and Crafts style, of course. There is no substitute for quality, except for, you know, being able to pay one's living expenses.

i can't drive/shop and need new furniture, art, rugs, a sofa and everything else. It's a nightmare to try and find things that aren't PB or C&B because it often ends up not looking like I imagined when I buy off the internet and there is no good way to find those bargain treasures. I even miss going to TJ Max and the like to find the occasional things for cheep that actually look good like frames.

I used to love going to antique stores, non chain stores and estate sales but now that I'm trying to find things like rugs and wood tables that you really need to see and touch it's so hard to tell if something is worth the price on line.

Any online art/furniture stores that have good quality and aren't really expensive? Especially rugs considering a good sized one is over 1K. I ordered a small one for a couple hundred and it looked nothing like the picture.

I covet mother's curio cabinet containing her porcelain collection, but I shan't, I shan't dare. One day. One day, soon. I shall wait. The wait makes me want. A bold one am I. The cabinet, indeed.

My philosophy is that it's not where you shop, it's having an eye for what works for you and fits your vision of what your living space should look like.

Try looking on Craigslist for quality pre owned pieces. I once bought a Hickory White gentlemen's chest for $125 just because the people were moving out and needed the giant chest gone.

You can also find antiques and good quality vintage furniture too.

Jennifer Convertibles. They have an elegant collection of living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, mattresses, and devorative accents for people without style, class, or distinction.

Pre owned? Really R28? Are you a Hyuandai salesman?

by Anonymousreply 3008/01/2013

No, seriously.

There are a certain class of pretentious assholes here who are always giving shit to those of us who buy from Pottery Barn, Ikea, Crate & Barrel, etc. So, where do you twats shop? (aside from Roche Bobois)

PS: R18, you got the name of the store wrong, so you're full of it.

PPS: Very happy with Pottery Barn, etc. Not all of us are rich.

Wait until summer when all the college kids dump their stuff. Or wait until fall when it's all on the sidewalk waiting to be carried into the house.

It's not that Pottery Barn is utter shit, OP, but completely overpriced for what it is. You can get better quality for less.

by Anonymousreply 3308/01/2013

I'm surprised no one has said he buys only "furniture made from responsibly farmed trees and from local, family-owned companies paying a living wage and full health benefits." That's the usual bullshit people like to sling around here.

Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware are way too expensive for what you get. As long as you are ok with unoriginal and functional you will do better at Macys, Bob's or Ashley.//

by Anonymousreply 4008/01/2013, but you have to wade through. The rugs can be very good buys especially.

I greatly love antique furniture because they used to make furniture to last and they used use real wood not pressed wood!! In antique stores you can get a good deal depending on the antique store and dealer.

The poster who mentioned Horchow, I couldn't agree with you more. Their furniture is extremely elegant and well made for new furniture. However, Horchow is very expensive and high end.

One of the ultimate places that sell extremely classy and extremely beautifully made furniture is Scully and Scully in New York City. You have to have big bucks to buy their furniture. I received their catalog and their furniture was extremely exquisite.

One doesn't 'shop' for furniture. One curates through the family stock of inherited pieces and contracts for hand-made originals with handsome furniture makers.

by Anonymousreply 4708/03/2013

Flea markets mostly and my place looks fabulous as to what R22 said. It's not how much money you spend if you put imagination and work into the end result. And of course, planning wisely and editing to think like an interior designer is also necessary. I shop for a few Ikea pieces too, but most of my furniture is stuff I've "reimagined" or "repurposed."
