Just left after ordering my bedroom set! They were so nice and helpful as I was shopping with my kids. The sales associate even gave my kids colors and printer paper so they were occupied as I browsed. Best furniture shopping experience

Buyer beware! Jeff and his team are selling furniture as high quality leather when in fact it is bi-cast leather. They have quite the scam going. They advertise the furniture as being at their store on consignment from high-end furniture stores. Often times, they say the furniture is Bernhardt. I contacted Bernhardt and it was not even close to being their product. All Bernhardt's furniture has removable cushions and these are not removable. Oddly enough, Jeff and his team keep getting the same couch and love seat set for consignment as well. Unfortunately, I am not the first person to fall for this scam. You are best to avoid this store completely as he and his team are very dishonest.

A unique place to tour around, even if you're not in the market for anything. There are plenty of odds and ends that you won't find anywhere else. Definitely stands out from other stores in what it has to offer.

The owner of this store is as unscrupulous of a con man as I have ever encountered in my life. Do not EVER buy anything from this store unless you have a furniture expert with you who can verify you are getting a fair deal.

BEWARE of the sales receipt you sign! We purchased new furniture that arrived at our home damaged. Upon contacting the BBB, Designer Marketplace stated we purchased floor Models and provided a copy of the receipt that states all

If I could give a negative score, I would. Purchased furniture from Designer Marketplace (April 2011), which was delivered damaged. I was told that it would be replaced with new furniture. Well, as time passed, I called the store many

This place is definitely the most unique furniture store I've been to in the Twin Cities. You will not find the collection of goods they have at HOM or Ashley that's for sure. I purchased a few chairs and a sofa from this place and I was

Had a pleasant experience with this company. I've been to furniture stores around town and yet to find such an eclectic store like this. The sales people were knowledgeable in helping select pieces to finish my great room. Designer

You'll need a shower and a stiff drink after dealing with the sales tactics. Save yourself the feeling of contempt for another human and just avoid this place.

At first I was unsure about this place because I thought I saw the exact sofa selling at Dock 86 for $200.00 less. I took Dock 86's sales quote to Designer Marketplace to see if they would price match. The manager explained to me that

I have recently purchased a wonderful sofa and matching accent chairs for my family room and couldn't be happier. The quality is outstanding and was delivered on time, as promised. The sales people were extremely friendly and couldn't be more helpful. They actually designed the layout of my room and suggested the furniture that I purchased. I love Designer Marketplace and will be returning to them for future business! I highly recommend this place.

I would 100% with the above descriptions. Do not do business with this place! We ordered our furniture at the end of January and we just received it two weeks ago (August). We were told that our ottoman would take 8 weeks to be made and decided to have our end table delivered with it at the same time. I called at the end of April and was told by a very confused sales person that my ottoman was in their warehouse and they would contact me about delivery. A week later, no call. I called back and was told that I would be receiving a call about delivery by the end of the week... Finally, my husband is able to get a hold of someone in the middle of June, now 5 months later, and he is told that it's still ??being made? and it would be ready in a month. Long story short, we finally received our order 6 months later, and they delivered the wrong end table!! The end table that we ordered happened to have the same item number as another end table in their computer system??not our fault. At this point, I just wanted a refund for the end table. The owner called me back, after two days of calls to the store, and he was only able to offer store credit. We weren't interested in doing business with these people, so my husband had to pack up the end table and bring it back to the store to demand a refund.

I checked with a friend of mine who is an interior decorator and she basically told me what I suspected about this place. ??These guys are a traveling road show- they take some consignment from the showrooms at IMS and the showrooms can't get paid. They say they carry closeouts, but the funny thing is, they tell you they can order things with different fabrics- those are not closeouts and so prices are jacked up and it makes it look like you're getting a good deal.?

I totally agree with customer2800's description of this place. Very slick sales guys who did not follow up when my (paid for) order fell into a black hole and were rude, arrogant, and entirely uninterested in solving the matter. I wouldn't do business with this place again.

Pros: Nice selection, nice prices

Cons: They don't give a hoot about you once they have your $$

Great prices but a big rip-off. Owner is a smooth talking guy who could rival any cheap, used car salesman. Owner does anything he can to make a sale, including promising things he can't deliver, lying about his merchandise, and then charging you in the end. Do yourself a favor and pay the extra money for quality service and goods somewhere else.
