The Best Furniture Deals
How to furnish your house and save money.
The most common buyers' mistake is misjudging the size of the table. Be sure the table is small enough to allow at least 30 inches between it and the surrounding walls and furniture.
Where to Go
- Pier 1 Imports has inexpensive choices with exotic accents (pier1.com).
- Modernica has reproductions of midcentury classics starting at about $700 (modernica.net).
- Drexel Heritage is a value-conscious source for pieces with traditional styling (drexelheritage.com).
- Watch out for tables that are unfinished underneath and those stained to look like something they're not. What appears to be cherrywood may actually be pine.
