We will be moving to Columbus shortly from the UK with no furniture! I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good, reasonably priced stores for Sofas and beds etc in the area?

Here’s the top 10 home decor shops in the city:
The pricing ranges at each location though.
Of course, there’s always a day-trip to the nearest IKEA, north of Cincy:January 5, 2015 11:37 am at 11:37 am #1057851
Awesome, thanks for that.January 5, 2015 11:51 am at 11:51 am #1057854
Clintonville has lots of little stores and antique shops. You will find dressers, side tables, maybe dining tables.
What is your style?
Cottage Street has a lot of painted furniture. Boomarang Room carries lots of Mid-Century Modern.
There’s a Crate and Barrel at Easton. World Markets and Targets are everywhere.
And you could check out the Columbus Craigslist. There can be really good finds on there! https://columbus.craigslist.org
There’s this place too: http://www.eurolifefurniture.comJanuary 5, 2015 11:55 am at 11:55 am #1057855
Here is a wonderful, local source of high quality, hand-made furniture:
The prices are not low, but the quality and style are wonderful. Tarik sells his furniture across the country, and his only showroom is located in the heart of Merion Village.January 5, 2015 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #1057857
Honestly, found out from shopping for sofas this past December that even including “Christmas Deals”, all of the furniture stores in Columbus are over priced.
We went with the exact same reclining sofa that we found at another store for $450 less through wayfair.com. On top of that, we got free delivery, something that none of the stores were willing to offer.
This might just be sofas, I don’t know.January 5, 2015 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #1057870January 5, 2015 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #1057880
Just fyi…I believe Cottage Street is closing :( There are signs up in their windows saying they’re going out of business. Might be the right time to get some nice things!January 5, 2015 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #1057881
Nix that last statement….I believe it’s SOBO Style. I knew it was one of the two.January 5, 2015 3:38 pm at 3:38 pm #1057890

On the other end of the spectrum, if you’re looking to economize and don’t mind a little particle board, don’t be afraid to check out Big Lots or Value City Furniture (both of which are Columbus companies, by the way). They have decent enough pieces that look ok and will help fill your home until you upgrade to better stuff.January 5, 2015 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #1057914

Not in Columbus, and almost 2 hours away, but this place – Bargains & Buyouts Outlet – sounds like a heck of a place to do a big furniture shop. Definitely worth the cost of renting a Uhaul in Cinci (not just for the OP, but anyone!) and hauling up – especially if you go in with a friend. I’m looking forward to checking it out sometime soon.January 5, 2015 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #1057936
^That place sounds cool!
Retagit has close outs too, sometimes pottery barn things. They have a few locations.January 6, 2015 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #1058066
