Furniture

Any suggestions on where to find furniture that doesn't break the bank?

what kind of furniture are you looking for?

Bed Frames? Couches? Shelves? Dining Tables? Home Furnishing? Office furnishing?

Furniture alley in Coquitlam. Ikea when they have sales events.

Couches, I'd browse around Furniture Alley and compare the liquidators with The Brick and other furniture dealers
Most of them are open to some haggling

Bed Frame I'd get from Ikea...or Costco. But Costco varies by season, I don't even know if they have em right now in the warehouses but should be available online.

FWIW, I got my bed frame from Ikea during a bedroom event

Ikea is too "low brow" for armind.

Make sure wherever you go that place has option for delivery. A lot of the liquidation places don't, which is why their shit is so cheap (also because it's usually QC issues).

i bought my sectional at MOE'S on terminal. no complaints. construction and fabric are good, price was at least $500 less than competitors. For bed frames i say ikea is probably the best. $500 for a fairly nice one that would cost you $1000+ elsewhere.

I've been there and their stuff isn't very cheap, nor do they have good stuff IMO. I found this guy that imports from China and got my sectional (product number 2436 in espresso brown) from there. Great guy, great prices and has been there for 14 years. Can't speak for longevity yet as I just bought it not long ago but it came with a one year warranty. So far so good though, no knicks or imperfections on delivery that I could find. Very limited selection.

Products | Quality West Sofa Imports

My second choice for a sectional would have been at mobler, but only for their stuff on sale. At regular price their stuff is almost double the price

Here's a real tip- if you're looking for a couch that you'll be sitting on everyday and want it to last, buy real genuine leather. Not the bonded/vinyl/leather.
Real leather won't come cheap, but it won't fall apart on you after a few years. And I mean literally falling apart...the leather itself will ablctually start flaking off.

I'm not sure what your budget is, but places like the brick and JR won't be selling quality couches. Most of their couches are bonded leather.
I've been to liquidation furniture before and the sell really modern looking furniture without the quality.

At the end of the day u gotta decide on what kind of abuse you're going to be putting on your couch and how long you want it to last.

There's also grades and thickness of leather as well that will shoot the price up.

You gotta ask yourself if you want a quality piece of furniture that will last you down the road, or if you'd want to get rid of it after a few years and change up the look.

Urban Barn Outlet in Poco, just picked up a real nice sectional there for $2000 off list. I got my bed frame from Costco which is great quality and a wicked price.

good point about the bonded leather. i'd stay away from leather completely if your budget is under $2500. buy microfiber instead, it doesn't pill like a lot of other fabrics.

Liquidation Furniture is indeed cheaper, but a pain in the ass to deal with.

Completely disorganized, no track of supplier stock and product, no track of payment, no notification of delivery.

+1 on avoiding bonded leather. Either go all out and get good leather, or go with cloth or another material.

Edit: def check out Mobler. Nice designs and quality, good price.
