I have heard about furniturenet. I know such online furniture store but want to know from those who have already taken furniture from them. Can anyone tell me about their service? Share your experience with us.

Hi Helen,

I bought some great stuff for my living room and dining room from oak furniture land

Really cheap, free delivery and 100% solid hardwood - no dodgy bits hehe!

Hope this helps

Jaz

I used to walk to work to save money in the seventies, all the way from Hampstead Garden Suburb ( I called it Golder's Green) to UCL and often milled around the windows of Heals in Tottenham Court Road longing for the day when I could afford a purchase. Their stuff is very good quality and very stylish, but not cheap! They sell online at Heals - visit and drool!!!!!!!

If I had the money to furnish my home with expensive furniture, I think I would consider trying to find a company or individual that could build my furniture for me, to my exact size, finish and colour, and also help me with the design.

What is expensive furniture though??? Pine used to be seen as the poor man's furniture and oak as the untouchable unless you were an MP claiming expenses

With the huge import industry, oak furniture has now become so cheap it has devalued the product. So much so, you can now buy a solid oak table cheaper than a pine one.

When buying furniture go for what you like not what society tells you to go for. There are many company's out there that will supply you or build you your dream table or wardrobe at a very good price

One more point; please please please do not be put of by VEENERS. A dirty word by customers, a sound product by manufacturers. Often seen as a cheap alterertive, there is a reason why veeners are used. Solid woods have a tendancy to move and split. Veeners don't. If you are after that solid wood effect and you do not mind the splits and knots then go for solid, if you are after a product that is blemish free, go for veeners.

To add my own comments to this interesting discussion (especially the comment about veneers, you're right, customers usually avoid these like a bargepole). There's the online oak retailed, oak furniture king, they don't have showrooms, so make savings and pass that onto their customers. Good reviews off customers too.

Hi guys, try Quality Lounge Suites. Based in Watford, Hertfordshire their online store is great. I purchased several bits from them and everything was amazing quality and with the best delivery i've experienced. Serious recommendation!
