Room for Improvement
They say "Going Out of Business" sales are the best times to buy furniture. And then I've heard January and July are really the months to pick up some new pieces. Personally, I think anytime a furniture store decides to whack 30 percent off its goods, it's probably worth a look. Whether you're in the market for a sofa or a mattress, this is the week to buy based on all the sales. Here's what's worth a look:
Lamps, tables and sofas, oh my: World Market is having a furniture sale that includes a Birch wood arm chair for $199 and a matching accent table for $99. In fact, all of their accent chairs are marked down up to 20 percent. Jennifer Convertibles is having an Election/Veterans Day sale featuring a $399 black leather Simmons sofabed. If you'd rather recline than sleep on leather, check out Hamiltons Sofa Gallery's leather and recliner sale. They have a leather chaise rocker recliner (a few steps up from Archie Bunker's chair) for $459. Thomasville is also touting its fall home sale, which ends Wednesday. Aside from discounted furniture pieces, the store has marked down all of its accessories, such as lamps, 25 percent. Faiz Oriental Rugs in Alexandria is closing its doors and trying to clear out inventory at 70-80 percent off.
Mattresses: Seems like mattress stores will use any holiday to start screaming out their sales. I thought Mattress Warehouse had the best Veterans Day deal with its Serta queen sets for $399.
Holiday sales: Two words that will send quivers down the serious shoppers' spine: "holiday sale." I just started seeing these two magic words recently. So far Portrait Innovations (think: photo holiday cards) is offering $9.95 deals on family portraits. Decorative holiday plates at Ann Sandra in Annandale are discounted 70 percent, including Lenox Holiday and Spode Christmas Tree. And the Mill End Shops, which does reupholstery, custom furniture and window treatments, has marked down fabric and labor 25 percent. Work could be completed by the holidays so your in-laws won't have to sit on that lumpy armchair with college-era fabric.
Pianos: OK, so it's a little odd to include pianos here, but it's worth a mention that Jordan Kitt's Music is closing its Vienna store, which claims to be one of the largest piano store rooms in the country. All 240 of their pianos must go and to get them out, many are marked down up to 60 percent. The store also has manufacturer coupons to offer. The Vienna store will stay open until all the pianos are gone.
Where did you buy your furniture? Did you pick up individual pieces or splurge on an entire set?
