Save on furniture and home furnishings with these discounters and unique stores that were featured on our Best Buys TV Show.

Please see our other pages for furniture including the pages for LA furniture stores and furniture in Orange County and furniture in Riverside County and custom furniture makers.


Update May 11, 2016  Furniture Outlet in Commerce has always been known as a discounter of made-in-the-USA quality furniture and now Furniture Outlet lets you customize this made-in-the-USA quality furniture at one low price. Furniture Outlet is conveniently located off the 5 Freeway in Commerce at the intersection of Washington and Garfield. You will find dozens of sofas and loveseats and sectionals on display and you will find hundreds and hundreds of different fabric samples so you can customize these factory-direct pieces for your home. Bring Furniture Outlet your ideas and they will deliver to you exactly what you want. Sectionals can be changed for size and design so if you want the chaise on your left or on your right they can build to suit your particular needs. One thing that I found very intriguing is that cushions and pillows can be made with two types of fabric designs which allows you to flip them over to create a new look for a room in just a few seconds. With these "flip over cushions" it's like getting two sofas for the price of one. Furniture Outlet continues to be an Ashley Furniture Direct Dealer. They also have bedroom sets and dining sets available. Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.

Update August 20, 2013  I just took a look inside the Furniture Outlet in Commerce which is simply named Furniture Outlet.  And how they do business is pretty simple too: they deeply discount top quality furniture and offer a wide choice of fabrics and colors direct from the manufacturers at no additional cost.  They also offer free local delivery and complete custom work is also available at reduced prices.  And yes, this is still an outlet for some of the top furniture brands in the country.

There are all sorts of special values here.  You'll find contemporary and traditional sofa and loveseat sets that can also be offered as a sectional sofa for as low as $895 which is about $600 below regular prices.  And included at no extra charge is your ability to choose from among ten different fabrics and 50 different colors.

There is also unique furniture here including sofas with king sized recliners.  Yes, instead of a "single" recliner, you get a very wide recliner which is called "king size" and is very comfortable for bigger folks and offers plenty of room even for two to cuddle on the sofa.  The sofa and loveseat two piece set with the king sized recliner that was on display was priced at $995 and is about a thousand dollars below what other stores charge.  It is made by one of the giants of the home furniture industry.

Furniture Outlet is located at the corner of Washington and Garfield and they are open 7 days a week from 10 in the morning till 7 in the evening.  It's a giant showroom with plenty of parking and they can help you order direct from the manufacturers they represent always at reduced prices.  Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.

Westwood Comfort is a furniture and designer kitchen builder at 2008 Westwood Boulevard, Los Angeles.  Call them at (310) 475-2929 or go to for information.  This is not your ordinary furniture discounter because it is really a furniture boutique because the design staff can discover unique furniture to fit every taste and need.  And most important -- delivery is very fast.  Prices are always discounted because Westwood Comfort has relationships with factories that need to move furniture in this tight economy -- and that means you save.  They also have great deals on kitchen makeovers with high end designs and features including granite countertops and very fast delivery.  A complete kitchen can be installed in one week, and delivery of the kitchen cabinets and granite can be made in one day.  You will always find lower prices than at the major furniture chains, but Westwood Comfort's design services and ability to order custom pieces at discounted prices is something that the big furniture chains can't do.

Westwood Comfort is very convenient for the West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica area.  It's just a few blocks from the Westside Pavilion and Olympic and Wilshire Boulevards.  Our TV report is below.

Before I tell you about the deals and low prices on custom furniture at Interiors Made Eezzy in Culver City, let's clear up this thing about the name of the store.  Eezzy is their way of spelling easy.  And when you visit this store you'll find that it's easy to get custom furniture fast and at low cost.  Their secret is that much of their custom furniture is manufactured in Los Angeles and that cuts down on shipping costs and speeds up delivery times.  Most custom pieces can be delivered in two to four weeks, and not eight to ten weeks which other stores might quote.

Prices are low on custom furniture because this company knows how to control costs.  Yet, you can pick from many fabrics and woods and determine your own size and style for sofas, dinettes, dining tables and book cases and other furniture for bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and throughout your home.  Interiors Made Eezzy also has kids furniture including low cost bunk beds and memory foam mattresses are available for the bunk beds too.  Check out their large bedding department featuring upscale but low cost mattress sets by Diamond Lady Americana and Englander.

The experts from Interiors Made Eezzy will also come to your home for window coverings and reupholstering furniture.  They even work with antique furniture.  Interiors Made Eezzy is at 10730 Washington Boulevard, Culver City. 

Call them at (310) 842-7197 or go to their website for more information.  Remember, this is where you can have custom made furniture created for your home at a lower price.  Watch our TV report below.

When you shop here you will say "I've never seen anything like this!"  And unless you have traveled back in time you haven't.  Olde Good Things describes itself as an architectural salvage company that rescues old building materials, old furniture and artifacts and creates stylish furniture that will fit any home.  These are, for the most part, unique and one-of-a-kind pieces that can be the centerpiece of any home.  You'll find copper that was rescued from old buildings in New York City that was fabricated into mirror frames and table lamps.  There are tables made from salvaged wood from buildings and from the boardwalk of a seaside resort.  Table legs are made from industrial legs for machines.  The wood from toppled rare mahogony trees was cut into table tops.  Church pews were shortened and made into benches that will fit into your home.  Window frames from landmark buildings were converted into mirror frames.  Fireplace mantles from suites in magnificent old hotels were rescued and can be installed in your home.  There are old refinished chairs from soda fountains.  You'll find iron gates that were turned into tables, and rescued wood filing cabinets that are almost a hundred years old, and old time factory carts that were converted into unique cocktail tables.  And you can dress up your home with original doorknobs from buildings built in the 19th century.

Olde Good Things has two locations:  11240 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, and you can call this store at (310) 477-8444.  There is another store at 1800 South Grand Avenue in Downtown L.A. and you can call this location at (213) 746-8600.  Or go to their website at for information.  Watch our TV report below.

Bring the kids when you do your furniture shopping at this unique discounter -- because all of you will have a wonderful adventure with birds, fish, pirates, knights in shining armor, and you'll be captivated by an original 1923 Cadillac and be amazed at the pilot who survived his plane crash in the center of the furniture showroom.  What am I talking about?  It's Larry St. John & Co. Furniture Island in Gardena.  This is not your typical furniture store because when you reach the place you'll think you are entering an amusement park -- and then once you are inside you will see how affordable high quality custom furniture can be-- and this includes high end custom leather furniture also.  Check out the new custom mattress department and Larry St. John's "non-prorated warranty" which means it won't cost you a dime to get a replacement mattress during the warranty period.  And no chain store can offer a deal like that.  Overall, you will find prices up to 60% off what the big chain stores charge for furniture -- but the chains can't customize the way Larry St. John can. 

Larry St. John & Co. Furniture Island is a freeway close adventure at 18101 South Figueroa Street, Gardena.  Call them at (310) 630-5828 or on the web at -- and really enjoy your furniture adventure.  Watch the video below.
