WOW...what another scam....fine furniture made in Narth America from owners who care about the community. Great! lets recap...quote is from Josh and Caroline Quick in their less than 2 year old post here!
""EQ3 is an internationally acclaimed business, but it is locally owned and operated""
'We also care VERY VERY much about our customers and our community. If you go into one of our stores, you'll find all local orignal art from emerging Bay Area artists. ""
OK , so these caring people, so into giving back to their community, sold their locally owned bussiness back to corporate America, or I guess Canada. Oh, and I'm guessing thats the internationally acclaimed part. Local artists pieces have been stipped off walls for silk screen prints...oh..so much for caring about community and those in it. Lets support...oh...us!
Again, some fast cash, and oh there goes another community!
Also...I have some ""great"" furniture from there,..sofa...bedroom set...all from ""North America"" I was told...however they forgot to take the ""Made in India"" stickers off the bedroom set (Im sure they're paid well)..and if you're confidant in Mexico as your North American manufacturer...great! (check the label)
Lets all give a high five to Josh and Caroline Quick for their intervention and contribution to the bay area!!!! Yeh!!! Maybe they can open a Walmart in Union Square?! Or, even better...some sweat shops in the tenderloin would probably turn a profit and benefit their community.
Look at IKEA...pretty much same manufacturers and warranties...but third the price...or West Elm...half the price...same items..better customer service

Yes, it's kind of like the IKEA of Canada, but the quality is so much better. And to be honest, no one's going to come over and point at your furniture saying that they got theirs from IKEA too...back in college. I purchased a couple of dressers and the staff was very helpful. Was quoted two weeks for delivery, got a call in about a week and a half. Not bad considering the other reviews on here. The delivery people were incredibly flexible. I mean, how many times are you sitting there in a 12-hour window waiting for a delivery these days? These guys were very flexible and showed up within 10 minutes of when they said the earliest time would be on a Saturday. Not too shabby. The only thing left to assemble was the handles, so it's not like you have to sit all day piecing it together.
Not all of their stuff matches my tastes, but I do wish they had a larger selection. A larger selection or variety at least would give them a higher rating in my view.

Ok Keeping it simple...I work for a designer so I know my stuff. This store has alot of reproductions but who cares. Great price points, nice layout, store was set up nicely and had homey touches like books and flowers and yes even employees with smiles. I wasnt even looking to buy anything since I just bought a Sofa from Ligne Roset but they recommened I check out EQ3 for some cool knicky nacks. I was greeted literaly when I set foot in the door by a young guy, took a spin around the floor and he asked me what was I going to leave the store with today? Funny opening line but it worked i felt welcomed. I looked at the bedding but nothing really jumped out at me, so I was walking out when I saw this small ottoman which was so simliar to another that I saw at blank (nameless store). I bought 4 so that I could use them as a coffee table and also spread them out for additional seating, and I spent literally half of what the would have been at the other store(remaining nameless) They came in 9 weeks when I was quoted 8 but the sales rep Josh did call me at about 6 weeks to let me know they would be late. That was nice a good touch of customer service. Overall Great service good product and AWESOME price points.

I love the TV stand I bought here and can't wait till I complete the set with bookshelves/ cabinets. I didn't know where I was headed when I responded to an advertisment; however, when I arrived I was immediately helped and she[salesperson] was amazingly patient with me and suggestive and tentative. I was in a rush so I left my item there and when I phoned to pick it up 2 days later they had it quickly ready for me. This furniture is similar to a nordic superstore, but smaller, has it's own hearty style, great prices and no meatballs. All made in my home town of Winnipeg, Canada-eh. I love it!

They really need to sort out their poor logistics system because at this point, even if they tell you what the estimated delivery dates are, they are FAR from close. Don't order from them if you have a deadline. They can be a month or a few months late. And their customer service is also poor. They are not apologetic about the delays and NOT helpful in trying to make things better for you.

EQ3 is my idea of a great place to shop for my home...the staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and service oriented. The store is beautiful...bright and cheerful! Great styles
and delivery time is either quick (if in stock) or very reasonable (if I have to order something).
I highly recommend this business to anyone in the market for home furnishings. The quality is great and the price is right...

EQ3 was the best shopping experience that I have had in a long time. My first impression - very open, bright space, great music and friendly sales people. The person that helped me knew a LOT about the product, and actually helped me resolve a major design dilemma I was having in an awkward shaped room.
I ordered some cabinets and a sleeper sofa. The sales associate informed me that the cabinets were in stock and they had some availability in the delivery schedule - I was able to get them delivered the SAME DAY!!! I had to order my sleeper, but it came in sooner than the time that they quoted me.
Overall, I had a great experience here. Not only was the shopping actually fun, but the product was really well made for the price.

I just had my new furniture delivered and I am so thrilled! My entire experience at EQ3 was incredible. The showroom is BEAUTIFUL, and the guy there that helped me was great... not pushy at all. I was able to get everything delivered a few days later (on a weekend!) and it looks so great. You would never expect such good looking furniture to be so affordable! (I'll never tell my guests what I paid!) :)
The accessories are cool too. EQ3 is my new addiction!!

Wow.. how have I (or SF!) survived this long without EQ3! ? I finally got a new place in the city that was deserving of some pretty cool, modern furniture. The thing is, I looked and looked for over a MONTH, and found stuff that I liked, but nothing that I could afford (I just cant see myself spending $1400 on a couch)... and I really didn't want to go to IKEA. One of my good friends heard about EQ3 through the grapevine and we decided to check it out.
THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS STORE TO SF! GREAT looking furniture, well made, totally affordable.... everything that I was looking for! One of the people that worked there even helped me come up with the perfect design for this weird nook in my apartment. If this store could please this girl, it can please anyone.

A friend told me about this place a couple weeks ago. I finally had the chance to make a visit and I'm so happy I did. The furniture there is very well designed... simple/clean lines, great colors, very chic! But best of all, the prices are AMAZING!
They also have very cool modern home accesories, such as pillows, sheets, dinnerware, lighting, frames, vases, etc. You get the picture. Oh, and they also show local art on their walls.
Best of all, the staff was great. The whole shopping atmosphere was very comfortable. They even have a dog there that greets all the customers. :)
I ended up buying a sofa and a storage bookcase and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. I've told all my firends and and will definitely go back if I ever need anything else.

San Francisco has needed a store like this for quite a while now. It was becoming increasingly frustrating to try to find cool modern furniture at a good price, but that would also not fall apart on you. EQ3 has done a fantastic job at doing just that.
Their designs are very smart, combining good looks with excellent functionality. Their prices were more than reasonable. And their staff was extrememly friendly and knowledgable. I furnished my living room and bedroom there and it's been about a month now and I'm extrememly satisfied. This place is a diamond in the rough and I highly recommend it! Keep up the good work guys!!
