I want to share the diamond in the rough I have found. It all started on Saturday when I told my husband who is out of town that I found the bed for us online. He told me that I should shop around but for me I had already done so online. He suggested I go to the Flea Market on Beach Blvd and I thought he was joking. He said he had seen some nice things there, but I was weary. Well, I decided to go and I discovered Martini Furniture. I was very impressed and now I am expecting to have my new bed delivered in just 2 days and it is gorgeous. If you have good taste but want to budget then Martini Furniture is the place for you. I was so happy with the style, the quality and the customer service. I didn't have to ask for help, even though it was busy and that matters to me. I like attention and good customer service. I told the owner that I would leave her a nice review online and her face lit up. Once I looked online I noticed that they don't have much of an online presence but they do have a website. So I have decided to leave a few reviews here and there for good measure. For one I get to support a business that I believe deserves a lot more recognition that it has and two I get to share the good thing that I have found. I rely on trustworthy reviews for certain items and love when someone shares a good deal with me, so here is my chance to pay it forward. Enjoy! I hope you find something that makes me as happy as my purchase has made me. I came here to post and saw the previous review. Now I am not sure if they sell used things because I didn't see anything that looked used. I did notice a little dark spot on the white footboard and pointed it out but I was assure that I would get mine's straight out of the box. I am keeping my own mattress and box springs I didn't think to check for bedbugs and that is a scarey concept. I am going to stop by Home Depot and get some Diatomaceous Earth just to be on the safe side. An ounce of prevention is better than the cure, so an 8oz bottle it is going to be. I don't think it is true but i don't want to take any chances. Now that I think about it, I will always do that when bringing home anything I purchase furniture wise. I am going to dust everything with DE and keep one eye open. But still I find it hard to believe something like that is possible. Oh and wait a minute, wait a minute, I just remembered the catalogs they had as well. I was able to look through it to see if there was something else that I liked besides what I saw on the floor. In fact, now I remember there were other people looking through the catalogs too. How would they show us catalogs to shop from if the furniture was all used? Who would have owned such nice furniture first? ha ha A foreclosed mansion or estate sale is the only place that could have housed the bed I chose. It is that beautiful and if that is the case I don't mind. I would love to be able to shop for previously owned Mansion/Estate furniture for an everyday price. I guess that was a disgruntled customer or something. Oh and I also just remembered that I told her I wanted the delivery people to take my old set. As not to be charged extra, I told her she could sell it as used but she never agreed. She gave me a strange look when I said that and there was a slight shaking of the head. At that moment I kinda wished I had never suggested it. I was embarrassed just a little but I told her it would be a good idea. Mainly because there is no way I am going to be able to carry my heavy frame out to the garbage by myself. I really would hate to have it sit here until my husband gets home. Plus the bed frame and headboard I have now is way nice, too nice to be in the garbage.
My husband and I were looking for a stylish & comfortable futon our home office. We went into two major furniture chain stores and they did not even try to find something for us by possibly pulling out a catalog - so we could search for something we liked & then order it. Our third stop was Fantastic Furniture on Atlantic Blvd. and they were FABULOUS! They worked with us and we picked out something in their Coaster catalog. We wanted something extra comfortable for our grandsons when they sleep overnight. The futon is the most comfortable, gorgeous futon (klik-klak) in light grey fabric. They requested "extra padding" which was added to the back and seat both! You just sink into this futon and don't want to sit on anything else. Also, when the factory had delayed the furniture delivery somewhat to the store, we were given FREE DELIVERY by these incredible owners / staff that run this family owned business. These guys are the best and we will always have them as our #1 place for furniture. The other furniture stores here in Jacksonville must not need our business, apparently!
Great store lowest prices I ever seen this location has great employees. There is a wide variety of items to choose from even lawn and garden items including patio furniture at the lowest prices even lower than big lots. They have home decor, clothing, grocery, personal care items, house hold items, cleaners, furniture, toys, and many other items to buy and I shop there often. It's a great store and new to Jacksonville with only 2 locations one is on Arlington Rd. It's new and the one on Lem Turner where I shop at it originated in North Carolina in 1915 when it was known as P.H. Rose he started this company when he was quite young and is now 100 locations strong spanning from NC to Florida and is still growing today. All they need is a website that is accessible through YP they are hard to find online but visiting the store best. They are still adding new items to their shelves so be patient if the store in Arlington doesn't seem to have much they are just opening it was like that at the Lem Turner store.
