While stores that carry top furniture brands vary by locale, some examples are Mathis Brothers, Furniture Mart and FurnitureLand. Mathis Brothers and Furniture Mart have multiple locations throughout the United States, while FurnitureLand only has one.
Mathis Brothers carries Bernhardt, Serta, Ashley, and La-Z-Boy and has Sleep Centers in Oklahoma and California as of January 2015, and their website explains they constantly strive to add to their brand offerings. They keep these and other popular brands in their showrooms and warehouses.
As of January 2015, FurnitureLand is only in Delmar, Delaware. It carries AspenHome, American Drew, and Hammary. The FurnitureLand website showcases furniture for every room in the house and pricing information for each piece. There is no sales tax in Delaware, which is a bonus for those looking to purchase top brands.
The Furniture Mart carries Sealy, England, and Tempur-pedic and offers special financing for purchases, according to their website. They also have a room planner who can help customers design a room.
MarketWatch explained in a 2011 article that furniture salespeople do not get paid until the customer makes a purchase. It also advises that purchasers should pay close attention to assembly and home delivery fees that are not included on the sticker price. MarketWatch explains that purchasers can often negotiate a price, even a sales price, down.
