Best Furniture Store - 2012
You may steer clear of the Highland Village shopping district strictly because of their rent-a-cop parking Nazis, but then you'd miss out on this chic store, which occasionally has good deals to boot. West Elm is not just trendy geegaws; it also provides stylish furniture upon which to rest said geegaws. We recently searched for months in vain for an affordable, white-leather tufted headboard and finally decided to have one custom-made, albeit from "pleather." Color us shocked that West Elm had the real deal, cheaper than all the quotes we'd collected. There are buffets, coffee tables, sofas, chairs of every stripe — all in neutral colors and often sporting some sort of "green" credential — and the Wood Tiled Dresser is a modernist work of art. West Elm offers monogramming as well, for the geegaw of your choice.
