That list is most of the time just as much as scam as any other scams.
It is always amazing how many Chinese companies claim they are the "official" partner or supplier, or whatever nice name they can come up with, for Mercedes, Bosch, GM, IKEA, or any other famous name brand.
And once you check it out, there is absolutely no connection at all.

I recieve all the time email from such Chinese companies.

What make you think they are "rich" ?

You would be surprised how many have the "bjg show" furniture on the first floor, where they give the big parties, but have on the second floor only a matras on a bare floor and no other furniture.

Or the "McMansions" owners that have also the famous brand cars, but can not afford to replace the worn brakes, but they did buy the big chrome wheels on their credit cards.

The show must go on ....

Just my 2 cents worth ---. I enjoy decorating and have done some of it professionally. Being a history major/buff, I enjoy things in my home that reflect my interests, hobby and craftmanship from other years. It has nothing to do with trying to impress anyone. It has to do with my own personal sense of aesthetics. It gives me pleasure to look at the beautiful woodworking in our home because I can appreciate what the craftmanship it represents. JUST personal thing. So maybe there are some of us out there who live within our means and enjoy crown molding, real wood cabinets, etc. Just because I have it doesn't mean that I am a snob or living with things that are just to impress.We all spend our money on something. We don't own a boat or golf but I do spend money on quality furniture , some of which I have had and recovered, refinished for years. I love it all. But is it key to personal happiness? No! I can also live without it.

"We as the people" can't do a whole lot. It's business. It's not a few people who want it. It's gotta be a LOT of people who are willing to hand over their money. IF Ikea ever comes to Alabama, it will be in Birmingham first.

While some view it is upto IKEA's own business choice to put a store in Huntsville, I will put forth the argument that it is not a "choice" by IKEA, rather; it is the "right" of the people in Huntsville to insist that IKEA open a store in Huntsville. The "right" of people (to shop) shall not be infringe by the selfish greedy corporate types that make decision base on their profit margin.

Further more, we can assure IKEA's business and keep the cost of IKEA furniture low by requiring everyone in Huntsville shop at IKEA....






Oh wait, this is about "furniture".... Never mind then, I've been spending too much time watching CSPAN on health care

Huntsville is large enough to support IKEA. I do not shop there, but know many people who do. Huntsville is the largest city north of Birmingham and south of Nashville and easily supports over 1.5 million people.

For higher end nice furniture, you can drive 15 minutes south of the Tennessee River bridge on south parkway and shop at Graves Furniture. Although Graves is an older place, they have long established accounts with most of the major furniture companies. They will beat any price on major brands. We moved here in 2007 and purchased some Lexington and Hooker brand furniture from Braggs. A neighbor told us about Graves so we took the drive. Graves had the exact identical model dining room table for $600 less. If you pay with cash, Mr. Graves will discount the furniture 50% off retail. For credit card purchases, he discounts 45% to cover his cost on credit. ALL OTHER local furniture companies will not go below 10 - 15% off retail. Also, Graves charges $65 to deliver anywhere in Huntsville.
