now that I have an apartment with a living room, etc, I need to buy furniture. good stuff, sturdy hardwood construction, not flimsy softwood. thinking a love seat and two chairs, one with a footstool. not really interested in leather.

be nice if they have financing options, as I'm not sure I can afford a $2000 love seat n two $1000+ chairs in one go. ;)

wife is fond of Victorian/Edwardian & Renaissance era styles n designs.

not having bought more than a bed or desk chair, I'm out of my league in knowing where to go or what to look for.

I buy my furniture from McLeary's in Langley https://mclearys.com/

Probably out of your price range though. In fact it's out of my price range, so I set aside $100.00 a month into a furniture fund. At their prices, it means I can only buy 1 piece every 1 - 3 years. But it is solid hardwood, Canadian made, and non-compressed sawdust furniture. For everyone else, there's IKEA. I bought some IKEA furniture in past, there's nothing wrong with it.

Image is a custom made coffee table constructed with eastern Maple. Don't ask about the price.

I like a lot of Ikea's stuff...however much of it is truly flimsy, which gives me pause.

I'm a big guy and that makes me hard on furniture.

Yeah, there is - you said it yourself...... "compressed sawdust furniture". Admittedly, out of that kind of furniture, Ikea does make theirs a bit better than others, but it's still that kind of stuff......

IKEA's furniture has gotten worse over the years. The fiberboard is thinner and flimsier and fasteners quality has declined as well. Those cam-locks they use are now plastic. PLASTIC! I've broken about 10 of them now. I found a cache of metal ones in my assorted fasteners container and I am hoarding them now. Maybe the plastic ones are ok for an average woman to screw in but not for the 200lb gorilla who usually puts the furniture together in the household (yup stereotyping here but it's true).

Furniture is one of those things where you get what you pay for, but there is a huge price disparity between entry-level cheap stuff and good quality stuff. It's labor, transportation and material costs. Hard to flat-pack non-fiberboard furniture that employs good joinery.

I've had good experiences so far with Ikea furniture, but it's definitely not meant to be moved more than once. It's not furniture that's going to be passed down to your children.

I have to agree on the plastic cam locks. Don't like 'em, but the ones in my furniture have held up pretty well so far.

That being said, my daughter's crib & change table set is made of real wood, but it arrived with several broken pieces that needed to be replaced TWICE (the pair was roughly $1000 too).

I bet 75% of the lower mainland has least 1 Billy bookcase in their house! I have at least 10, maybe more. lol

Son of a Diddley on the crib Greg. That's frustrating for sure!
