Look for Less - More Refurbished Values

I started a series yesterday showing a well designed room (House Beautiful or Traditional Home Magazines) and the idea of using refurbished heirloom-quality furniture to lessen the cost and provide a great value proposition.  Not only is the cost of refurbishing (or buying already refurbished) upholstered furniture much less than the cost of buying comparable quality new pieces, it is getting harder and harder to actually find comparable quality good pieces.  Many furniture stores and outlets have closed over the last few years because of the economic downturn - even in a huge market like Atlanta (Georgia), there are very few quality furniture stores.  So, for many consumers, it has become necessary to buy  custom orders at high cost.

There is a huge - almost unlimited - marketplace for quality pieces that are begging to be reused and refurbished.   It's a tribute to green decorating and cost cutting - what a nice combination!
