Hi All, I am moving to the new tampa area soon and I need a ton of new furniture ranging from king size beds to lamps. I do tend to like modern sleek design in furniture. I've liked designs in some boutique shops in the north plus places like ikea or pier one.

Are these specific furniture stores that anyone here would recommend i take a look at (both chain and non-chain stores). My sense is that location within tampa should not be an issue since they should all deliver (right? :-)).

thanks in advance.

We're planning on day tripping to the IKEA in Orlando after we move (it's not a long Drive at all).

Check out Bo Concepts in Westshore Plaza, and Scan Design on Gandy Blvd. in South Tampa.

Haverty's, American Signature, Ashley, Matter Brothers, Rooms To Go, Kanes,

All great stores, depending on your taste.

Haverty's and Matter Brothers are my favorites!

Default Thanks all of you!

This are a great list. We'll be there next week, will probably start with sange's favorite two and tampaguy's two recommendations.

The IKEA option in Orlando seems like a good one as well but if we can find cool local stores first then it might save the trek (although i just love the ikea designs and am sure to go there sometime!).

Default An update

Just wanted to check in and post an update after i had a chance to visit some of these places.

Scan Design and Bo Concepts were fantastic. Between the two Scan Design had a much much larger showroom. Would strongly recommend anyone moving to the area and who likes contemporary furniture at least visit these stores. It's hard not to like what you see here.

Loved Haverty's as well. But it's mostly traditional furniture - although excellent ones at that.

Rooms to Go has an interesting collection: some combination of classic, contemporary etc and is also worth a visit.

If you are looking for kids furniture (bunk beds etc) then both Haverty's as well as Rooms to Go seemed to have some good options. Didn't see much of this at Scan Design or Bo.

Very true, but it's not open until mid-November. After that, it would be worth a day trip. I got a very cheap (but very nice and very comfortable mattress) from Tampa Discount Matress). Also check out craigslist. We found really, really nice wood furniture on craigslist for great deals. Also, there are a lot of Rooms to Go in New Tampa. Good luck with the move!!
