  • Craigslist :)
    Department stores can have pretty good sales sometimes. We've to Boscovs here that has pretty decent furniture at affordable prices.

  • IKEA, Value city furniture sometimes has good deals, Big lots even has some decent furniture (they also have a lay away plan that can be helpful

  • I suppose one's definition of "affordable" is subjective, but to me, Rooms To Go and American Signature Furniture are both very affordable and the furniture will last several years. Ikea's furniture is less expensive, but it's more cheaply made and smaller. I can't buy anything from Ikea because it all looks like it's sized to go in very small rooms, and we have large rooms in my house so it would look ridiculous. It also has the feel like it's going to fall apart if anyone over 150 pounds sits on it. I guess it really depends on what your budget is.
    I agree with the posters who also suggested Costco and Big Lots--while you wouldn't think Big Lots would have anything "good", they actually do get shipments of some name brand stuff.

  • I shop the used furniture stores. We have a lot in my area. The furniture is usually better made and cheap. You can paint it if it doesn't look so good. I love the hunt. I find the ones who call themselves "Antiques" are usually over priced and not always an antique. I am talking about the Hard case goods made of wood and doved tailed. For soft goods, the sofas and upholsted chairs, I go to discount stores, like JC Penney's damaged and returned store. I have always bought my washer/dryers at Sears' damaged and returned store. What do I care about a small dent or scratch. I just bought a pair of Maytag front loader washer/dryer 1 yr old with 4 yr warranty and the drawers they stand on for $600.00. They retail for $2500. All we had to do was get a seal for $64, which we installed. Even if I am forced to buy from a regular furniture store, I always asked for a reduced price.
