There are a lot of options for furniture shopping in the Boston area and navigating them all can be overwhelming. We help thousands of customers each year find and customize the perfect furniture to fit both their lifestyle and needs. However, as much as we love helping Bostonians furnish their homes, we realize this is a big decision, and making an investment in your home comes with a lot of decisions. 

Rather than turn you away to research other local furniture stores on your own, we compiled a list of the five best furniture companies in Boston that we highly respect. So, if it turns out Circle Furniture isn't a good fit for you, here are five stores you might want to check out. This selection of stores spans Greater Boston; including the areas surrounding Cambridge, Framingham, Middleton, Acton, and Pembroke.

A basement, unlike most other rooms in the home, doesn’t have a designated purpose. This means that the options are endless when it comes to designing and decorating.

But that doesn’t mean it comes without challenges. Basements, even when furnished, can come across as stark, cold, and unfinished. We met up with the team in our Middleton showroom to get their expert advice on how to design a functional, cozy basement.

Much like our retail stores (and other non-essential businesses), furniture factories were forced to pause their production and either close-down for 2 to 3 months or switch focus to creating PPE for essential workers.

It’s not unusual to wonder why wood furniture is so costly. In fact, we got the question enough that we answered it in a blog! 

The fact is, high-quality, hand-made furniture is more expensive than poorly-made furniture made with MDF and veneers. But, even on the higher-end, there are variations in how much you’ll pay for a piece of hardwood furniture.
