Recently moved to condo and no furniture! Have been thinking about crate and barrel, because it's easy.
Does anyone have anyother ideas? Don't want to spend too much, but need a few well made contemporary/transitional pieces.

What about furniture row? Do you still need a vendors license to shop in that area? I'd think they wouldn't require that considering the recession.

Thanks,

Elyse

Crate and Barrel is OK, but I wonder about price v. quality....

Try the furniture stores up off of 635 & Midway/Alpha area. Start with Freed's Furniture and go north from there. Danish Inspirations, Eurway, Cantoni, and quite a few others are in that area.

Try Crate and Barrel outlet on Inwood south of I-35.
Or try Weir's outlet (off Buena Vista) - behind Cafe Madrid (on Travis).
Have you tried floor samples from Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware?

pottery barn does not have much furniture in store --at least the one in southlake

stacy's in grapevine has pretty good prices and you can order from them if you don't find what you want in stock for same discount most of the time

we got better price on 6 piece office furniture from Hooker line buying from them than even buying off the internet and not having to pay sales tax...

Weirs.

Look for consignment stores that sell "gently used" or the overstock stores in the Galleria area.

Crate & Barrel is overpriced junk for the most part. Retail furniture is so marked up it's ridiculous. Don't pay the price tag no matter what. With the economy tanking you might be able to negotiate some deals. We recently bought some chairs (not in DFW) for about 60% of the listed price. The sales guy said yes so quickly, we realized we could've offered less.

I was thinking IKEA as well and also Rooms to Go which is in the vicinity in Frisco (near State Highway 121 and the Dallas North Tollway).
