I am looking for a place to buy a nice inexpensive couch around the peninsula or in the city. Most of the places I've been to have boring looking styles. Im looking for something bright. Any suggestions on where I should check out? Thanks everyone.

IKEA in East Palo Alto - off of 101 at University Avenue. Most other places I've seen will just rip you off for something that is either foofy or overtly cheap.

Have you tried going to consignment stores? They usually have some top-quality stuff from department stores (and personal homes) for pretty low prices. I got my bedroom set in San Mateo for about $500, and it originally sold for well over $1000 - and it was brand new when I got it, since it was a discontinued item from Macy's.
Here's the info for that store: Home Consignment Center... Great Furniture at Great Prices!

Talking www.craigslist.com

This site has people selling furniture of ALL kinds at very reasonable prices and many times even free. I have gotten some cool stuff on there that can't even be found elsewhere.

True, true... I just gave away a couch on there! It was pretty ugly, but in perfect shape and quite comfortable. I asked my roommate for months to get rid of it, but he was dragging his heels - so I put up a "FREE COUCH" ad, and had 10 responses in a matter of hours.
