Best Furniture Store - 2012
Home Design Store
Despite the Magic City's carnival mesh of cultures, many furniture shops here are more vanilla than Topeka. After your eyes glaze over from a slog through the big-box furniture stores, all the dressers and cabinets look the same. Here's the antidote: Home Design Store. The family-run business culls pieces from several countries, such as India, China, and Indonesia, and aims to make your home décor unique. The products are solid wood, with a selection including teak, mahogany, elm, and Indian rosewood. And the prices are right, considering your home will look like it was furnished by J. Peterman after a voyage to the Far East: a rosewood table from India will set you back just $599, a stylishly weathered nightstand costs $369, and a sweet jade-hued ceramic Buddha straight from China is $299.
