Furnishings & Retail
There is no right or wrong when it comes to selecting the furniture and accessories for your home, but working with experts in the field before making your selections can make the process a whole lot more enjoyable. Fortunately for us, the area offers a wide swath of quality retailers and showrooms, with furnishings for every style, taste, and budget. If you go for the instant gratification of a retail shop or showroom, don’t forget to measure before you buy!
The Sale Room @ IMS
The Sale Room @ IMS is your best resource for designer-quality furnishings at 50-80 percent off retail. We consolidate the other IMS showrooms’ sale merchandise; and we search the country for fabulous deals on manufacturers’ discontinued and overstocked items. There is always something new to see, and if you can’t find just the right piece, we offer several lines that can be ordered specially for you. We also have a second location across the street from IMS called The ANNEX that is full of more great deals.
What are some ‘investment pieces’ that will stand the test of time?
Almost every large piece of furniture should be considered an investment. We tell our clients “You get what you pay for, but you can find it at a great price.” Buy the very best you can afford, even if it takes longer to acquire each item.
How can a person find his or her style when it comes to home furnishings?
First, gather photos from magazines and websites such as Pinterest and Houzz.com. You will begin to see consistent themes throughout your photos. Then, bring them to The Sale Room for a complimentary in-store consultation. Our designers will help you define and integrate your unique style into your home. Keep a folder of these ideas when you shop to help you stick to your design plan.
