List of recommended furniture brands in all price ranges
Brands that are a good buy for the money (i.e. manufacturer is not making an inflated profit). Brands that are more likely to arrive in your home in acceptable condition, sparing you from the saga of returning and waiting redelivery (or worse, fighting with furniture companies over defects).
I'd love to support American manufacturers, but does buying furniture made in USA 100% guarantee no problems? I cannot think of a better way to phrase the question than by comparing with autos. We've had some bad experiences in the past with both furniture and cars. A horribly malfunctioning Pontiac, repeatedly damaged furniture from JC Penney and Sears Homelife. Many years later we tried to buy furniture again with a larger budget...and again had a bitter experience with ethan allen.
