Built around the idea that having a decent sofa to sit on or a place to stow your sweaters shouldn’t break the bank, Lake View–based Wrightwood Furniture stocks well-priced goods in a variety of styles, from French antique to industrial metal to rustic country. Prices hover around $100 for dining chairs and other smaller pieces, $500 for midsize sideboards, and $1,000 for large wood storage units. They stay low because everything ships directly to the store from factories in India and Indonesia. Granted, you’ll pay more than you would at Ikea, but then again, you won’t be wondering how to unload that particleboard dresser in two years.
