When making a furniture investment in your home or office that’s supposed to last you a lifetime (or at least until your style preferences change) and you live locally, you may be asking yourself:
- What’s the top furniture store in NJ?
- Where can I find the best discount home furniture in New Jersey?
- What are some furniture stores in NJ?
You don’t want to work with just any seller if you want the best products and the best experience, at the best price. As you do your research, you may notice that some stores get horrific customer reviews: the products never arrive, they arrive broken, arrive late, or customer service was awful. As a Central, New Jersey Monmouth County based family-owned and operated store that has been in business and has raised our families in Monmouth County for more than 20 years, we owe it to our neighbors, family, and friends, to be a place they can rely on.
We have learned what it takes to be a top furniture store and are proud to say that we have new and returning customers always stopping in our Howell and Middletown showrooms who live in Lakewood, Toms River, Jackson, Freehold, Edison, Red Bank, and beyond. We are also proud to say: We have customers who take the hour drive from New York City and Philadelphia to test out our furniture. And, there’s always our website which features thousands of pieces of furniture for every room in the home from bathroom furniture to patio furniture. So what should you look for in a top furniture store in New Jersey, all of which we offer? Read on.
A knowledgeable team.
It’s not your job to know furniture – it’s the furniture store employee’s job. You don’t want a sales person you want a furniture expert, someone who can guide you on the different styles and how they can work in your home, brands (like the differences between Ashley Furniture and Aico), delivery times, and more. This is why we employ design experts. We actually have a team of designers who will at no additional charge, help you design the room(s) of your dreams.
The majority of our customers have an idea of what they want but it’s our job to show them an assortment of collections to help them find the perfect pieces. You could spend hours in our showrooms trying out all the furniture and looking through our product catalogs for pieces you don’t see on the floor. Instead, our team of experts can point you in the right direction of the assortment within your needs. Having an assortment of brands is also important; not all brands are created equal and some have their own unique styles, like Old World, Coastal, and Modern.
White glove delivery.
In this day and age, consumers are so used to placing an order and having it be dropped off on their doorstep in a box. With furniture, a giant cardboard box for that matter. They are they responsible for disposing of the cardboard and putting the furniture together. If furniture is not put together properly it can be dangerous, collapsing and have a shortened lifespan. Imagine you are peacefully sleeping in your brand new King size Hooker furniture canopy bed like the one pictured below. (You heard canopy beds are a 2019 home furniture design trend and you could not wait to get one but then you are abruptly woken up.) No, it was not the dog barking the dog was sound asleep in your living room on a recliner that he thinks is his. It was your bed! Your mattress just fell to the floor and your bed collapsed while you were sleeping. Of course, you have a big presentation to give in Manhattan tomorrow too. With white glove delivery, our team of experts go to your home and lay out your furniture where you want it. If it did not already arrive assembled, they put it together for you and don’t leave until everything is perfect.
When dealing with a business that works with thousands of consumers every day, there’s always going to be some negative reviews because making everyone 100 percent happy all the time is impossible. But, a top furniture store will overall have a good reputation and a ton of excellent customer reviews. Look for keywords in reviews such as “great service and fast delivery”.
Cheaper is not always better but competitive is the way to go. Price match like we offer is always a plus. There’s no reason stores should be ripping customers off by overpricing their products. However, typically, only high volume stores can offer the most competitive prices due to rates manufacturers will sell to them at. Offering competitive prices is just a good business practice and will help you save you as a consumer, money.
