Best furniture store for a media center

Posted by tomcs (My Page) on

It seems everywhere I try in NY it's the same thing: overpriced stuff made overseas. The piece I looked at over the weekend was made in Vietnam; not for me.

Can anyone recommend good stores?

I've tried Thomasville, Ethan Allen, Raymour and Flanigan, Pier 1 and am coming up short.

You may want to look at Crate and Barrel. I don't know where the furniture is made but I thought they had some nice pieces when I looked. Haven't purchased anything yet. You may want to look at antiques and see what might work.

I would also suggest Crate & Barrel. I have the item below and love it. Our flat panel is mounted to the wall and it looks great, lots of compliments. This is my favorite piece of furniture, it is so nicely made.

I was in Crate & Barrel a few days ago, everything was veneer, except a few Maria Yee pieces, which weren't the style I was looking for. Although they are solid wood, the Yee pieces were joined in a very odd manner, it looked as if they were taped.

I have a Crate & Barrel bookcase and the paint or finish is already wearing off, and I don't touch the bookcase.

I'm seriously thinking an antique might be the way to go after all.
