Best Place to Buy Furniture

FindFurnish

IKEA display rooms are snappy and stylish, but interior designers looking for more control over their own feng shui would be better served at a thoughtfully curated shop. At Northeast's FindFurnish, where the owners pluck rare mid-century furniture from throughout the Midwest, then refurbish and resell it in mint condition, it's worth a measure of patience to wait for the vintage Gatsby chaise or the Frank Lloyd Wright desk. Think fine wood with classy steel accents, wicker weave, and a roasted umber color palette — unique vintage.
