Furniture is an important purchase.
Since we use our furniture every day, it should be beautiful and functional for our homes.
I often hear customers say that with so many choices available, it can be overwhelming to find furniture that’s right for them.
I think it helps to know what items other people really love.
At Fair Deal Furniture, I’m involved with sales as well as product purchasing and development, so I have the privilege of learning about the needs of our customers and then purchase or develop furniture accordingly. With the help of my sister, our mom, and our team, we try to bring in furniture that we think our customers will love.
If you’re shopping for any big furniture pieces for your home, such as sofas, dining tables, or bedroom sets, you’ll want to look at the three most popular items at Fair Deal!
What customers love about it: The style!
It seems that people don’t typically like the furniture styles that their parents had, but their grandparents’ furniture is a little more interesting. I think people love the nostalgic look of those older styles, so those styles are being refreshed to fit modern tastes.
Why we love it: The old-fashioned style of this piece has made a big comeback. The deep pleated pockets and tufting are reminiscent of the mustard-yellow sofas in our grandparents’ homes. But with a fresh, solid-coloured fabric, this style now has a more elegant look.
Reasons to buy it through us: Fair Deal is the only store providing this specific sofa. This product is locally-made and comes in 20 color options.
What customers love about it: This is our best-selling dining set in the store.
Our customers are consistently pleased with this piece. I think it appeals to a lot of people because the rich walnut colour works well with a variety of dining room themes, and it’s very durable.
Why we love it: It’s beautifully crafted with a unique X motif on the chairs and server. It also offers some choices — you can choose a configuration (two benches and two chairs or four chairs and one bench) and the height of the table (counter or regular).
Reasons to buy it through us: Because this is a popular set, we always keep it in stock for our customers, which typically means quick delivery. We often have this one on sale too.
What our customers love about it: As soon as people see this, they are impressed. Customers can tell that it’s made with high-quality materials, and it’s a strong, durable set. I often hear people say that they love the stone and LED lights on the headboard, and many people also choose the storage bed option.
Why we love it: It has a cozy cabin vibe that can add warmth to your bedroom space. It creates the perfect setting for an early morning coffee or breakfast in bed.
Reasons to buy it through us: This beautiful Canadian-made bedroom collection is exclusive to Fair Deal Furniture in Calgary.
