As of 2014, the top five furniture brands are Ashley Furniture, IKEA, Williams-Sonoma, Berkshire Hathaway Furniture and Raymour & Flanigan, according to About.com. The rest of the top 10 brands are La-Z-Boy, American Signature, Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel and Ethan Allen.
One of the main reasons that Ashley Furniture has taken the top spot is that it offers affordable furniture, and it has stores across the country, explains About.com. IKEA comes in second best thanks to its smaller furniture pieces and ease of assembly. IKEA is affordable, yet its pieces stand out as different, something its devotees love.
Williams-Sonoma, as the third-best furniture store, owns a number of other brands such as Pottery Barn, and it offers something for everyone, reports About.com. Pottery Barn, for instance, has high-end furniture, but West Elm, another Williams-Sonoma brand, offers furniture that is trendy and affordable. The brand considered fourth best, Berkshire Hathaway, also owns a number of other brands such as R.C. Willey and Jordan's. The reason this brand ranks high is because its stores carry multiple brands, giving customers an option when buying.
The brand ranked fifth out of the top furniture brands is Raymour & Flanigan, as listed by About.com. This is a New York-based brand that is midpriced and offers many options to its customers.
