    @JGVR- Yes Amazon is good. So is Wayfair and Rooms to go.

    We bought our bed on amazon. What a pain it was to put it together! The process wasn't hard... but it was quite exhausting.
    Just coz my DH has to put it together- we try to buy from craigslist.. it is already assembled. We rent a truck load it and get it.

    Assembly is rarely minimal or easy. Beyond bookshelf, any assembly takes lots of time, at least 2 people, and there is the hassle of 1-2 parts missing, or scratch/dents in transit. Better to buy from a local store. Or craigslist. In the past few years, we didn't have the time to go look properly and choose (most stores close by 5 pm in weekend), so we ended up buying used furniture. Very pleasantly surprised at the quality and price. So now, if the furniture does not have fabric, I go for used. Would never have done this many years ago.

    Wayfair is a reliable name.

    We are total IKEA fans, but I have also seen nice pieces at World Market, Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn and West Elm. And Restoration Hardware if it suits your budget. It depends on your style. Amazon can be hit or miss.
    Is there a reason you want to buy online? Furniture is one thing I will only buy in person. Especially when measurements are important. And returns can be a pain if you don't like it or the piece is damaged.
    In case the furniture you buy needs assembly you can hire someone like a Task Rabbit to put it together for you. After assembling a whole houseful of IKEA furniture ourselves during our lean postdoc years I would consider this money well spent.
    Craigslist or even your local thrift stores will often have excellent pieces.

    We just bought a bed, dresser and nightstand from Birch Lane. We paid $50 for white glove delivery. They called to schedule a time for the delivery, brought the furniture into our room of choice, assembled it and even took all the packaging back with them. They asked me how I wanted the room setup and placed the bed and dresser where I needed them. It was totally painless. Well worth the 50 bucks. Wayfair does it too.

    Yeah, that can be a hit or miss. For bedroom needs, I think online shopping may do. But shopping for furniture online may be a bit hassle.

    If you search on google you will get many options to choose but, according to me Pepperfry and Hometown are offering best deals on furniture shopping via couponsji. Apply coupon codes, and take away your product at the discounted rate.
