Default Furniture Stores

My DH and I will be furnishing a new home in a couple of months and we haven't really purchased furniture in YEARS! So we basically need everything. We're looking to buy some quality and/or higher end furniture.

We've looked at Ethan Allen and they have a few pieces that might work but I really like Crate & Barrel's style. Unfortunately they don't have a showroom where you can see a lot of their larger items. Can you recommend some quality furniture stores in the Howard or Montgomery county areas?

It might be too far out of your way, or not your style, but we love Ikea stuff. There's one in White Marsh (near Baltimore) and one in College Park.

Ikea in College Park

In DC, there are a few stores in Georgetown ($$) between 33rd and 35th on M Street. Theodores up on Wisconsin Avenue and there used to be a place called Mobili (not sure if it is still around). A few on 14th Street between M and U Streets worth checking.

In Baltimore, I found a few nice places in Fells Point. I think if you google Furniture shopping in Baltimore or Fells Point" you'll find some listing for some interesting stuff.

The general style of DC is, well Ethan Allen. That sort of semi-old looking, Georgetown rowhouse decor. I hate it, but it's pretty popular here. There are some furniture mills in North Carolina that have showrooms in Virginia (I think one big one in Dulles and then another in this place where there are like 7 showrooms in 7 different buildings). If you have to spend > $20,000, it might be worth heading down to those places near the VA/NC border and loading up (can't remember the name but someone else might).

The furniture capital of the world (well, of the US, anyway) is High Point, NC. There are a bunch of furniture manufacturers and dealers, and I hear you can get a real bargain there. I've never been, so I am not sure if it's true. But I think that's the place that PenquinSix was talking about.

I just checked the Crate and Barrel website and you can see some of their furniture in the following stores:
- Baltimore (Towson Towne Center)
- Arlington, VA (The Market Common)
- Tyson's Corner, VA

The largest furniture store on the east coast is Johnny Janosik's World of Furniture in Laurel DE.
They have a 180,000 sq foot showroom and beat anyone's prices. They deliver all over MD, DE, VA and I think NJ.

Johnny Janosik - Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Delmarva Furniture Store

I just bought all of my living room furniture there.

If you want to be adventurous, see what you can find at overstock.com. There's a variety of prices. I've ordered a few things from there (chairs, end table) that have held up well. Many pieces look pricier than they are. Be sure to read the reviews.
