With their huge national ad budgets, it only makes sense that big box stores and chains immediately come to mind when it’s time for new furniture or home decor. But there are drawbacks to shopping at those places – and plenty of advantages to checking out the local stores first. Here are three (great) reasons to shop local for home decor.

A Smart Money article some years ago titled “Pottery Barn Unstuffed” took a chain saw to a bunch of the furniture sold by these behemoth lifestyle retailers (Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware among them). After sifting through the ruins, they uncovered incredibly thin, cheap veneers, excessive amounts of particleboard and shoddy construction – none of which jive with the accompanying price tags. It’s a master class in selling an aesthetic, and you can chalk it up to those glossy catalogs, a great photographer, and an even better decorator.

But if it’s the Pottery Barn look you’re after, you can get it – minus the subpar craftsmanship. Here at The Find in Reno, we have an incredible selection of stylish sofas, seating, dining tables and more. Get the look, and get it with furniture that’s made to last.

If having the exact same sofa set and dining table as everyone else who shops at the big box stores doesn’t bother you, skip this section. But if your idea of home decor is creating a signature style that really represents your aesthetic, then you already understand the value of finding something different. At The Find, we have pieces you won’t find anywhere else – and that’s intentional.
