Did You Know


Night Stands (Bedrooms)  and  End Tables (Living Rooms)  are interchangeable.

Both products average 24 inches high and 24 inches wide.

Both come with drawers and open shelves.

Perhaps you would prefer the look of an end table next to your bed or a night stand would work better next to your couch or chair.​

If your space is limited, look for Chairside Tables in the End Table category.

Most Chairside Tables are only 13 inches wide.

Night stands and end tables can also add extra storage in a hallway, foyer or bathroom.



Reimagine


Need a table for a hallway or foyer?

Look at  Sofa Tables, Hall Tables (Living Rooms)  and  Buffets/Sideboards (Dining Rooms).

Both pieces are available in a wide range of widths and lengths and can add storage along with a table surface.




Reconsider


​Consider  Sofa Tables, Hall Tables (Living Rooms)  as a TV stand for today's flat screen TVs which have a smaller footprint.

They are a great option to save space and money.




Repurpose


Looking for a small padded bench for a hallway, bedroom, bathroom, anywhere...

check out Ottomans (Living Rooms) .





Multi-Uses

Storage that doubles as a coffee table or bench...

Hope Chests, Toy Boxes (Home Decor).


Storage Cabinets for any room...

Hutches/Cupboards (Dining Rooms)  ​and  Bookcases (Office).


Many customers have re-purposed our beautiful Jewelry Boxes (Home Decor).

Remove the wood dividers in the drawers and use one on a kitchen counter to hold recipes or small tools and use one on a desk to hold stamps, paper clips, etc.










Flexible Design Options


Most of our  Beds (Bedrooms)  are shown with beautifully designed high footboards.

This does not match everyone's design taste or it may not be practical in your situation.

Look for the note  Low Footboard Available  which appears on over 95% of our beds.

A low footboard is usually only 17-18 inches high (from the floor) and is there to support the bed frame.

Selecting the low footboard option will reduce the price of the bed by about 25% .

We have been asked by customers if they can purchase only a headboard.

Our beds are designed so that the headboard, footboard and sideboards all fit together perfectly for a strong, sturdy bed.

If you only buy a headboard, you may never find a frame which will fit it.

Bottom line, buy the whole bed and select the low footboard. 



Browse through the  Hutches/Cupboards (Dining Rooms)  category.

When the hutch is a separate piece from the bottom, the bottom is always available alone as a buffet.

Look for the note  Bottom Available Without Hutch.

Cupboards come in many sizes and styles. Not just for Dining Rooms, they would also look great in Kitchens, Bathrooms, Family Rooms or Home Offices.





Looking for barstools or counter stools?

We have a  Barstool (Dining Rooms)  category, but we only list an item here if we have a picture of the item.

Start here to see the different heights available and how the bases look.

Then look through the  Dining Chairs (Dining Room)  category to find the back and arm style you like.

Look for the note  Also Available as Barstool. Contact us for a price quote.

Selling furniture on a website is challenging.

We do our best to give our customers all the information they need to make wise decisions.

Here are some tips to make your shopping easier.


Bookcase vs Bookshelf

Rocking Chair vs Rocker

Different areas of the country call furniture by different names.

Are you looking for a bookcase or a bookshelf, a rocking chair or a rocker?

To have better results when searching for an item, enter a partial word such as book* or rock*  (include the *).


Oak, Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Hickory....  How do I Decide ???

Our furniture comes in many different woods and stain colors.

You may only see one picture, in one wood and one color.

Visit our Photo Gallery page for help visualizing the different looks.

For more information about each type of wood, read About Solid Woods.

For more information about stain colors, read About Stain Colors.

Contact Us and we can send you actual wood and stain samples at no charge.

Confused?  Contact Us and we will help you.


Measure, Measure... and Measure!

All of our furniture pieces have the dimensions in the description.

Height (h) is from the floor to the highest part of the piece. Check your ceiling height.

Width (w) is measured looking at the piece from the front and measuring from side to side at the widest points.

Depth (d) is measured from the front of the piece to the back.

First make sure the piece will fit in the space where it will rest.

Next measure the doorways and hallways that the piece must pass through when delivered,

especially if you are going up to a second floor or down to a basement.

Our delivery company is awesome and works hard to bring in your furniture.

Most large pieces can be taken apart, however some deliveries are impossible.

When in doubt, check with us before ordering.
