West Elm – 109 Atlantic Avenue
What might be Liberty Village’s favourite furniture store, West Elm is a fun place to visit. There is the standard selection of furniture one would expect to find but West Elm also has a number of unique, modernized lamps, picture frames, kitchen accessories, and quirky figurines that are worth considering for a purchase. Any time you are looking for some quick bits and bobs to accentuate your condo, West Elm has an attractive inventory, and also has received rave reviews for its staff who are friendly and knowledgeable about the product. That said, throughout the past year or so, there are some who have criticized West Elm for its higher than average pricing, much of its inventory being India-made, disputes with blocking public parking in the surrounding area, and for its delivery charges. For those interested, it might be worth paying the store a visit to gauge whether this is an appropriate place to buy furniture for your Liberty Village condo.
Casalife – 171 East Liberty Street, #170
Casalife is another mid-to-high range Liberty Village furniture store that appeals to some but certainly not all. Though there are some unique looking pieces at Casalife, the past few years has also seen it receive some mixed, if not outright negative, reviews. If you are fortunate enough to grab a customer service representative who knows their stuff and/or to catch a sale, it might be worth a visit for some. Much like West Elm, Casalife has also seen its fair share of criticism when it comes to its high prices and some of its products being of a lesser quality. There has also been questionable customer service practices and accusations of poor management from unsatisfied customers, including those who have had negative experiences with delivery and/or installation, which continue to be services provided by Casalife.
