For greatest variety and best possible prices on high quality living room furniture you might consider evaluating online sources vs. limiting your choices to a local store with retail mark-ups.

Here are some high quality furniture vendors and manufacturers we recommend to our interior design clients:

Ballard Designs
Bungalow 5
Crate & Barrel
Currey & Company
Global Views
Hickory White
Restoration Hardware
Stanley Fine Furniture
Williams Sonoma

We would consider these vendors to be above average to high quality, which can be in contrast to many retailers that offer lower prices for lower quality furniture that will show wear much sooner and require replacement of fabrics and cushioning much much sooner than the vendors listed above.

Some of the vendors listed above manufacturer the furniture sold at retailers like Crate & Barrel, Restoration Hardware, etc. and you can get greater customization and save by going direct.

If you are looking for more personalized sales or design recommendations, we recommend seeking the assistance of an afordable online interior designer who has accounts set up with many quality vendors and who can help you choose an arrangement of furniture vs. a pre-sold "set" from a department store or local furniture store.

And as an added bonus when buying through a licensed interior designer you also have access to their designer discounts from trade sources and popular retailers which can, depending upon what you are purchasing, actually save more than the cost of their design fees.

Good luck with your decorating!
