We’re moving to a new house up in Carver, MA, and we don’t even have the rooms planned out yet.
Ideally, you’d want to have your space planned out for the furniture you intend to put there, for both function and aesthetic reasons. Planning will also help you pick out the furniture that won’t only look good in the space you have, but fit in it too. Nobody likes furniture that can’t even fit through the door.
That being said, I do know a place that sells good lamps and furniture, but it’s located in my hometown of Middleborough. It’s called Egger’s Furniture, and I’m not sure how far a drive it will be for you, but seeing what they have on display should be worth the effort. But I suggest you check out their website first, to be sure that they have exactly what you’re looking for, before you spend all that gas money.
