I've been looking for master bedroom furniture for a while. We had accumulated a mixed set of oak headboard, pine entertainment center, early marriage dresser, and various other pieces. I do think there's a decorating style called eclectic, so we'll choose to call it that.
When we moved last year I began searching in earnest for the right set, and I found it. If you're interested in seeing it, here's the link: http://www.stanleyfurniture.com/downloads/dl/file/id/24/louis_philippe.pdf.
What I wanted was a good price, so I called a number of local furniture dealers, compared online furniture prices (like Cymax, Amazon, and Wayfair), and found the best local price was a little better than online, but not much. By the way, the best local price was from Ariana Home Furnishings in Cumming.
So I went to the Hickory Furniture Mart's webpage (http://www.hickoryfurniture.com/) and searched their dealers to see who carried Stanley (go here for the manufacturer list: http://www.hickoryfurniture.com/manufacturers.inc), then called to get a quote (the Stanley dealer was Good's Home Furnishings, and they were fantastic). It was about half of the online price, even when the delivery cost was added.
Ahhhhh... I LOVE a good bargain.
The furniture came in about two weeks, as it was in stock, delivered and set up by a very nice pair of gentlemen from Star Delivery.
Did I say that I'm happy?
And here's the finished look.
