I'm not stupid enough to buy anything referred to as a "living room set," no.


And what do people sit on in the anonymous household?

*snort*

In my place, I have a pink couch and a variety of chairs acquired from a variety of sources. The only piece of furniture I've ever 1) bought new 2) from a furniture store is my bed, and it's good quality. At least, it's lasted for five or six years now with no signs of falling apart.

I think Bob's is shady also. I have been having a problem with my seat. Lately, it has been very sore and inflamed. I think it might be hemmeroids.

If you have a crack in it, perhaps you could bend over and get nailed.

Anyone ever shop at Marty's furniture? Good stuff (so far) and very reasonable. Also got reasonable good stuff at Bernie & Phyl's.

Bernie and Phyl's: I, too have heard some good stuff about them, but I'm sort of erring on the side of caution, given Shady Bob's reputatioin.

As for the commercials, Bernie & Phyl's are definitely the most annoying. I can't believe they get Red Sox and Celtics to participate in their ads. Bob's Discount Furniture's ads are a close second, thanks to that blond twit who accompanies him who fails at her tounge-in-cheek humor with each ad.

Unpainted furniture stores

Investigate local, family-owned stores. Let your fingers do the walking.


I like the unpainted furniture stores. You pick out the unfinished piece you like and get exactly what color finish you want, so everything matches. The one in Norwood is good. And the product is solid. I'm happy with it.

I bought a livingroom set from them and it fell apart within 3 months and they refuse to exchange it or give me my money back.


They have to fix it, exchange it or give you your money back. It's the law. More info here:

"When the item purchased is defective, you can choose a repair, replacement or refund. This right is contained in the Implied Warranty of Merchantability law. Under that law, merchants cannot limit your remedies."

Over the last several years we have bought a number of items from Bob's including a living room "set", dining room table and chairs and highboy. The only problems we had was some minor scraches on the dining room table which were repaired the next day. Although the quality is not on par with say Eathan Allan's for the price I've had no bitches. I will probably buy from them again.
The ads may be hokey but who pays attention to ads anyway but those lacking any will of their own.

My experience with BOB'S was way below par. I've been happy with 2 purchases from B&P.

My son's bed broke in less than two months. The boards are made of very cheap and fragile wood. Worst of all, the person who came to verify the damage and determine if the 1-yr warranty applies changed his report from "you will get a replacement" to "not covered" as soon as he left my house.

My advise to others: DO NOT BUY FROM BOB'S.
