We got our dining room table on Overstock.com.

Just wanted to share my experience with overstock furniture.  I think I’m just unlucky, but I’ve bought two pieces there, and they have both cracked.  It looks amazing and for the price, it really couldn’t be beat, they would have easily been twice the price.  I had no problem putting them together, but noticed a few months later that they had cracked.  My TV stand has a large 8 in crack in the top now that is really noticible.  And my coffee table has just a slight crack on the side and is not noticible.  They are both rubberwood.

Have you tried CB2.com? They are the more modern version of Crate and Barrel.

I don’t know if this will gross you out – but we buy lots of our furniture off of craigslist. TV stand, dining room table + chairs – as long as it is easy to clean, I feel like it’s fine to buy off of craigs.

My friend just told me the Ashley Furniture has 14 piece sets for 1,000!  Definitely going to check that out soon!

We have furniture from all over the place. Pottery barn, Haverty’s (dunno if you have them nearby or not?), Ikea (love), Crate & Barrel…I have also found a few pieces that I really like online at Target.

I think I’m going to go the Costco route.  Their pieces aren’t always the most modern, but very classic and since they’re from Costco, you know they are quality pieces (and if there’s ever a major problem, just take it back!)

I realize this is a crapshoot, but some of our good friends just bought an amazing reclaimed barnwood table off craigslist. Don’t overlook something like craigslist just because it’s “second hand” – there are some gems to be found!
