When I am serious about looking for vintage furniture or clothing, I always make this store my first stop! This place is crammed with goodness and its always changing. The staff is fun, knowledgeable and total enablers. If you are just looking to kill some time or have a need that must be filled, this is the place to go!
I have always recommended people to Lounge Lizard. I adore Christopher and the setup of the store really makes it a cut above your average midcentury furniture shop. From the fabulous assortment of lamps that hang from the ceiling, to the easily accessible clean nature of the place, I usually can't stop raving. That said, today I went in searching for a great chair. I saw one that I thought might be what I was looking for, removed an ottoman from the top of it, and then swiftly someone walked up behind me, snatched the ottoman and set it right back into the spot then pointed at the "sold" sign which I simply hadn't seen. Honestly, a simple "Sorry, that's already sold" would have been sufficient. Instead, I'm turned off and feeling some of the new shop employees are just unpleasant.
Pros: Clean, great selection, artfully laid out, Christopher
Cons: New employees griping about other employees, mean employees
I recently picked up a desk and some vintage stools at Lounge Lizard. The selection is varied and beautifully presented. These are really nice pieces, not damaged junk. Best of all the staff are all friendly, knowledgeable, and quite witty! The prices, I felt, were very appropriate based on the condition of the pieces. Shopping here is a blast! Now I want to move to a bigger place so I can do it again!
Great selection of interesting pieces and a frequently changing inventory. It's easy to find something unique, functional, and affordable. The displays are often creative and inspire ideas. !Love it
Okay, this place may have some cool items. I have got to say, it is WAY WAY over priced. The furniture is mostly not even cleaned up. I sat in a chair, it was covered in pet hair and dirty. The lanterns they have hanging in the shop are fantastic...but let's remember they are used and plentiful. They are going for upwards of $90? Come on! You can find the same great stuff around town for reasonable prices. Too bad Lounge Lizard, you shouldn't take advantage of the hipness and rip people!!!
Pros: cool lighting
Cons: dirty furniture and over priced
Lounge Lizard is seriously one of the (if not the) best retro furniture / decor/ artifact shops in Portland. The inventory is constantly changing, affordable, and authentic awesome. The people are really cool too. Basically, treat yourself .... and go stop by.
Shag carpet everywhere. I thought my childhood was hip and now this place confirms it. The staff is so helpful. I told Christopher that I loved this brown entertainment center. Next thing I know he is driving it over to my place. I now have a complete living room- Thanks again, Dogs Dig It
Pros: Hello...shag carpet, disco ball and fringe lamps. Need I say more?
This store is great! A lot of the furniture looks more expensive than what is being charged and the staff is extremely helpful. They'll even deliver! The only draw back is parking-though it is available right out front sometimes.
Pros: location, price, service
Great deals and a wide variety, you just can't get any better. If it's retro it is at Lounge Lizard
This shop never ceases to amaze me. Delivered my sofa, teak end tables and lamp for FREE! Good prices, great service, inventory changes constantly. These people are always friendly & helpful. Consistently, the best selection of affordable vintage furniture. Retro lighting inventory is amazing!
Pros: Great prices, Large selection, Customer service
Cons: Want everything, Quick turnover, My V/MC % rate
