Furniture is one of the most important, yet least appreciated aspects of life. You rest on it, your kids play on it, you sleep on it, and in many cases, you have it your entire life. Many people don't appreciate the sheer size of the furniture industry and are tricked into believing that WalMart, Costco, and BigLots! are the only places to buy furniture. These furniture retailers offer truly cheap furniture, as affordable as it is fickle, and often omit any consideration for quality in pursuit of hitting a price point. These are the $300 sofa sets, the $250 bedroom sets, and the $25 cocktail tables—marketed to compulsive and low-income buyers. BigLots will finance a $500 sofa for 12 months, and jump at the opportunity to start charging a whopping 29.99% interest rate after that. 1 These retailers don't care about the lifecycle of their products, and ultimately not about you. While the total market share of these types of companies is staggering, there are still so many quality furniture brands available. While these brands aren't cheap by comparison, purchasing these products online can save a tremendous amount of money—often as much as 40%!
Stanley Furniture Company. Stanley Furniture Company is another story of long-lived success, founded nearly 100 years ago in the Commonwealth of Virginia. During that time, farmer turned industrialist Thomas Stanley founded this company on principles of fine craftsmanship and a drive only truly seen during the changes brought about by the industrial revolution. Thomas Stanley later went on to become the Governor of Virginia, and Stanley Furniture continued it's rise to success. Today, Stanley is a publicly-traded company (NASDAQ: STLY) and continues to innovate with truly unique and inspiring designs. Stanley, as many of the best furniture brands found here on this list have kept a keen eye on emerging design trends and have adapted to meet an ever-changing demand within the furniture market. The majority of their style could be best described as a modern interpretation of traditional styles, though they are no strangers to more contemporary and modern styled lines. Stanley furniture offers sales through authorized local dealers, which can be found through their dealer locator page. Additionally, Stanley furniture can be found for purchase on Wayfair.
