Consider a trip if you are nearby, or a few phone calls if not, to the “Furniture Capital of the World”. Traditionally much of the furniture manufacturing took place here, yielding the potential for great bargains by buying direct from the source. Much is now outsourced overseas, but many manufacturers still sell furniture for 10-20% less than retailers, often with included warranties. Write down the item number from a price tag in a retail shop or a furniture catalog, then ask the manufacturer what the price is if you buy direct. Make sure to ask for free delivery.
