Picking the right furnishings for your living room can be a big decision. So you’ve picked out the right chairs and sofa, but what about the coffee table? Having trouble finding something that fits the rest of your room, or even something tastefully different? And maybe you’re looking for a company you can trust. Ashley Furniture is a company that’s been producing quality furniture since 1945, and has a great variety of tables and sets to choose from.

So, the question you need to ask yourself is: “What am I looking for?” Do you want something wooden? Or metal? A glass top, maybe? Long or short, curvy or square? There’s a lot of variety in coffee tables, and so much selection from Ashley!

If you’re thinking about something that’s practical, but still looks nice, an Ackley is great for a cocktail table.

With a lovely, smooth top, and plenty of space to store and display below, it’s a great table to use everyday, while still having something refined in your room. Or you might want to try picking up the durable Bongo table set, with the sturdy cocktail table, and two rustic end tables that can compliment your room with a nice Old World feel.

Or maybe you’re looking for something a bit more showy and elegant. You might want to try the Bittersweet table, with a pine top and artsy wrought metal legs, you can give your living room the sense of a Parisian cafĂ©! Or maybe you want to invite the neighbors over for tea, on your dark-stained top Rafferty coffee table. With a classily designed base, and a nailhead trim, you can add in a taste of European style.

How about modern? A Charla set, with a metal base that has tapered legs to hold up the glass tabletop, can give your space an almost space-age aura. You might also want to think about a Dempsey table, with a simple, but enticing design. With a glass top above a polished black shelf, it’s a great choice to have friends over for a drink. Or if you’re looking for something edgier in the same style, look at a Pascal.

Or maybe you’re a creative type of person, and you want something to express yourself with. The Spirit Lake rectangular table is an interesting piece that you can bring into a room to add some character.

Try out a Loyel maybe, and see how that works for you. It comes on wheels even, so you can move it around the room as you wish, maybe to keep your Feng Shui energies flowing. A Ferretti occasional table is another good choice, as the ridged wooden legs give it an interesting touch.

Need a table for the patio? A Lasour, with a glass top suspended by a bending wood frame, can give you that light feeling of a summer day under the canopy. A Printz cocktail table would also be a nice addition to the front or backyard. A glass top, with inlaid stone tiles along the side, gives a nice atmosphere for a morning cup of coffee on the porch, or some iced tea in the afternoon.

For every style you’re looking for, the Ashley Company has something for you. With their refined, yet affordable selection, it’s no surprise they’ve become the largest manufacturer of furniture in North America. Next time you need a table, for any room or reason, you know where to look.

Ashley Furniture FAQ:

Question: Ashley Furniture?
Does anyone know how much more it is to have Ashley Furniture deliver on a Saturday?

Answer: Do you actually have to pay a delivery charge? Don’t all Furniture stores have free delivery? Where I live, it is free within 160km radius, seven days a week, during business hours.

I wouldn’t pay to have them deliver what I bought from them. Isn’t it enough that you actually gave them some business.

Question: How does Ashley furniture compare to Lazy Boy?
I’m looking to buy a sectional and recliner and I’m thinking about going with Ashley furniture. How does it compare to Lazy Boy? Will it last as long? Is it as sturdy as Lazy boy?

Answer: No. Ashley is not as sturdy as Lazy boy. The only reason that I would go Ashley over Lazy boy, is if my budget were tight. In my opinion, not only is Ashley lacking in quality when compared to Lazyboy, but their customer service and support leaves a lot to be desired!

Question: When is the best time to buy from Ashley Furniture?
I want to buy a bedroom set from Ashley Furniture. When do they have the best prices? What kind of sale schedule do they have?

Answer: Though I do not know a whole lot about Ashley’s retail stores, I do know the company well; the furniture retailer for whom I worked sales, customers service, and management was an Ashley dealer. I can only assume that they function in much the same way that other discount furniture retailers do.

Furniture stores, as was mentioned, tend to have some definite sale times. Statistically, the big weekends of the year are memorial day and labor day. Those also tend to be the days of the biggest sales (generally a circus in the store, so check to see if they start sales prior to the actual holiday weekend). Additionally, any other “3 day weekend” holiday tends to trigger furniture sales.

Question: What is the markup on Ashley furniture?
How much does Ashley mark their furniture up? How much can you work them down on a price?

Answer: The mark up on any furniture is high. Ashley is not a very high end so the marked price isn’t all that much. Regardless of the furniture line, it is never a negotiable issue. The price is the price unless they are offering a sale. Furniture stores are not in the flea market business. If you don’t like the price, wait for a sale.

Question: Is this a good price on an Ashley furniture dinette set?
I’m considering buying a used Ashley furniture dinette set. Its a nine foot cherry table, very ornate carved wood and very elaborate and formal. It comes with eight upholstered chairs. The seller is asking $2300 or best offer. I can’t find any Ashley prices on line so I have no idea if this is a good price or not. Anyone know if that seems like a good price?

Answer: If you are looking to compare prices there is what is called “the largest home furniture store in America” located in Omaha Nebraska. I know they sell Ashley furniture and have a good website to compare prices with. On a side note if you are in the Omaha area I highly recommend them.

Question: Are the sofas at Big Lots any good? They say they’re by Ashley, are they really Ashley Furniture?
Are they just stealing the name Ashley to trick you into thinking they’re Ashley Furniture? They are a great price but will they last?

Answer: Ashley furniture is just middle of the road quality furniture. About 10 years ago I worked for a furniture company called “Value City Furniture”. They carried a lot of Ashley brand furniture…Bedroom sets, dining room sets, sofas, living room casual tables, etc. We saw a lot of repairs on that brand furniture. You know the old saying…”You get what you pay for.”

Question: Does anyone know of any credible discount stores that specialize in selling Ashley furniture online?
I’m looking to furnish my home with Ashley furniture but its a little costly, for me at least. Or maybe you know of another furniture make that makes furniture similar to that of Ashley or better?

Answer: I live about 15 miles from Ashley’s big plant in Arcadia,WI. They have an outlet store there and lots of their Ashley Home Stores all over the country. Call them in Arcadia and ask for advice.

Question: Ashley Furniture Replacement Parts?
Where can I get replacement parts for Ashley furniture?

Answer: I have gotten parts from Consumer Service Dept. They were very helpful, ship quickly and the parts were incredibly inexpensive (example: coffee table cabriole leg, $15 delivered).
