休斯顿哪里买家具

刚到休斯敦,不知道到哪里买家具?

第一,直接去大型的shopping mall购买,如IKEAwal mart
第二,在网上查找二手家具买卖信息或者Yard sale(庭院旧货出售,是一种现场买卖,有些家庭把一些不需要的物品、家具和衣物等放在自己家的车库前或院子里廉价出售);ezthelife版权所有
第三,在各大超市的网上直营店购买。如果有闲,还可以到商店去看看摸摸,然后在网上搜一搜^^
第四,挑选有比较专一的品种,可以到专营店去选。比如床、桌子等专营店。

美国的家具大概分为四个等级:

第一,Assemble furniture。这类家具大多是木压板/合成板为主料。一般Target和Ikea卖的就是。大概一张床几百刀。ezthelife版权所有
第二,Low end furniture。这类家具有品牌,也是实木的,但是设计等不是特别考究,也算经久耐用。Ashley就属于这一种。一张床得1000-2000刀。
第三,Mid end furniture。这类家具是实木制作,做工和设计也不错,看Drawer可以发现,它是用ENGLISH Dovetail这种木头连接方法了。EA,Thomaswille 可以算这一类。 一张床得3000-7000刀。
第四,High end furniture。顶级家具~ 除了一般做工,表面还有几十道工序。只有看到摸到这类家具,才知道超出中端家具很多。品牌上 Harris,EJ Victor等属于这类。一张床就得上万刀了~ezthelife版权所有

家具的质量 /挑选家具

家具从结构上分两类:casegoods and uphostery. casegood就是指木头结构并且大量木头外露的,象桌子,椅子,床,dresser等。uphostery则是需要在木头上面加布料包裹成形的,象沙发那些。我们现在专注的主要是casegoods。 

最开始唯一知道的是ENGLISH Dovetail.是一种木头连接的方法,看Drawer一定要看这个,最好是有,而且要作的比较精细。如果是靠螺丝拧在一起,不是件好事情。ezthelife版权所有 

还有就是Drawer的悬挂,好一点的会除了两边的side-hung还有中间的wood-on-wood central glide. 这样保证Drawer的运动非常流畅,重量分布均匀,好用且耐用。STICKLEY在这面很有特色,它家所有的都是这样作的,只要一个小手指头,拉住任何一边的PULL,都可以轻巧地拉出,不会偏移卡住。 

木头都有自己的花纹。木纹的拼接另家具别具一格。现在的家具很多都用Veneer,就是很薄的一层木头,贴在木头的表面,来达到美观的效果。一个原因是象桌子表面,没有整块那么大的木头,是多块拼接在一起形成长板的。另一个是有的木头非常紧缺和昂贵,可以做出非常奇异的花纹,有的作Veneer都不错了,不可能用来作主体。所以Veneer不是低品质的象征,要看是什么样的Veneer,做的好不好。我们看的高端的家具,用Veneer加实木的非常的多。 ezthelife版权所有

 American Drew

Competes with Bassett. A modest line found in many major stores.

Ashley Furniture

Ashley has benefited from the influx of imported product out of Asia, becoming the fastest-growing furniture company in the U.S.

One of the best. At the very least, one of the top five producers of fine wood and upholstered furniture in the United States. Very expensive, but worth every dollar. Collectable, and surely one of tomorrow’s heirlooms.

Bassett Furniture Company

Modest but honest value. Good starter furniture or perfect for kids’ rooms and vacation homes. One of the largest domestic producers of case goods and upholstery.

Bernhardt Furniture Company

A wonderful line of impressive fine wood product. Their approach to finishes has always baffled me a bit as it seems they work hard to produce muted, opaque finishes while I prefer clearer, transparent finishes–a minor point when the line is considered in toto. Absolutely one of the better lines in the United States.

Broyhill Furniture Company

Good values, a well-priced, nicely styled line. Don’t hesitate to give it a good look. Carried by many large chains.

Century Furniture Company

Certainly one of the top 10 producers of fine wood furniture and upholstery in the U.S. Beautifully styled and beautifully finished, a line to look for when considering the best.

Drexel-Heritage Furniture Company

Its best collections are as good as it gets. A big lineup of product from modest to expensive. I always consider Drexel the point where price and value meet. Pay more and you get more glitter, but not more value. Pay less and you really are getting less. The Heritage product is as good as it gets. Heritage competes directly with Century and Henredon.

E.J. Victor

Relatively new, but immediately a leading contender for inclusion in our top 10 producers of the very finest wood product and upholstery product. Simply magnificent furniture. You will only find it displayed in your area’s finest stores. Expensive, but well worth it.

Ethan Allen Furniture Company

One of the great success stories in the furniture world. Its product assortment and store presentations have set the standard for all other producers to follow. You will never be unhappy with an Ethan Allen purchase. Generally priced at the lower end of the Drexel and Thomasville lines.

Ferguson Copeland

A newer company that is offering a tremendous amount of style and pizzazz for the money. Check them out.

Flexsteel Furniture Company

One of the country’s largest producers of upholstery product. Good, solid, reliable upholstery, well-priced and well-styled.

Guy Chaddock & Company

My personal favorite for the finest country wood pieces produced in the United States. Their finishes are works of art. A piece of Guy Chaddock can make a room. I would buy a piece from any of their collections, sight unseen, and know I would love it.

Hancock & Moore

Excellent leather furniture. Generally considered to be the top of the line for leather upholstery.

Harden Furniture Company

Very good product. Harden offers bedroom, dining and occasional furniture. A small company with good attention to quality. Priced at about Drexel.

Hekman Furniture Co.

Upper-end company manufacturing mostly occasional furniture. They have an excellent desk program. Good quality. Priced near Drexel and Thomasville.

Henredon Furniture Company

One of the top 10 producers of fine wood and upholstered furniture. Beautiful finishes, beautiful woodwork, beautiful design. If you own Hendredon, you own some of the very best.

Highland House Furniture Co.

One of the country’s top producers of fine upholstery. Beautiful designs, careful, excellent quality standards. You will never make a mistake buying this product.

Henkel Harris

Very high quality, solid wood furniture. Many traditional designs. Priced near the top.

Hooker Furniture Company

Medium-priced entertainment centers, bedroom and occasional furniture. Excellent value. One of the leading producers of entertainment centers. A good buy. Give them a good look.

Karges Furniture Co.

Expensive and lush. Magnificent wood furniture. Perhaps the most opulent of the American manufacturers. Collectable. Very distinctive design and execution.

Kindel’s big problem is the ever-diminishing number of purists who appreciate the understated elegance and refinement of this grand line. Expensive, but a true collectible.

Lane Furniture Company

Middle of the road. Competes with Lexington and below.

Lexington Furniture Company

One of the great values in wood furniture in the United States. I believe Lexington gives you more bang for your buck than any other line in the country. Is it the best? No, but it may be the best value. Lexington is a consistent industry leader in style offerings.

Maitland-Smith Furniture Company

One of the largest and earliest developers of exciting wood product coming out of the Philippines. Many unusual pieces, a very exciting line. Heavy in occasional wood furniture. Uses techniques that cannot be touched by mainland producers. Even with all the excitement and style, a very affordable collection of items. Very influential in the industry.

Marge Carson Furniture Co.

Distinctive and outstanding producer of fine contemporary wood and upholstered furniture. Some of the most pleasing contemporary designs produced in the U.S. come out of this company. Beautiful finishes that few other producers even attempt. If you are after a look for today and can indulge yourself, you must take a look at Marge Carson. This producer has had a heavy impact on upper-end furnture styles in the U.S. Priced at the Henredon/Heritage level.

Natuzzi Furniture Company

One of the world’s biggest producers of leather upholstery. Perhaps some of the best-styled leather product to be found anywhere. I don’t think it is the best quality but, for the money, you may not be able to do better.

Pennsylvania House Furniture Company

A consistent producer of good traditional wood furniture and upholstery. Long in the shadow of Ethan Allen, it deserves its own place in the sun. It would be a mistake to miss shopping this fine company.

Pulaski

Competes with Stanley but usually a little more dramatic in its presentation.

Stanley Furniture Company

Modestly-priced, often very excitingly-styled furniture. Excellent value, a good line for your first home. Usually priced below Lexington.

Stickley Furniture Company

The price mover behind the arts and crafts movement and still the force behind the mission style that is very big now. Stickley is what fine furniture-making is all about. Uncompromising quality and unquestioned status as one of the country’s finest wood furniture producers. Expensive, but you will be glad to own a piece of Stickley.

Sumter Cabinet

Well-priced, solid wood line. Well put-together, although most designs are pretty basic. Very good value.

Thomasville Home Furnishings

A big, well-done line of excellent wood and upholstery. You should always make it a point to shop a Thomasville showcase store. They miss very few bases. A direct competitor with Drexel, Ethan Allen and the upper end of Lexington.

Universal Furniture Company

A big offshore producer of modestly-priced wood furniture. Style and detailing is amazing when you consider their prices. A great value. At or below Stanley.

Vaughan-Bassett

Modest case goods aimed at the mass marketer. Competes with Bassett and Universal.
