Fish Furniture, a family-run business since 1925, packs each of its locations with 40,000 square feet of abode accouterments from more than 200 brands, such as aspenhome and Riverside. An abundance of youth furniture items ($499+) waits to decorate children's bedrooms, including sturdy beds equipped with sirens to scare off monsters or sentient homework assignments. Mattress sets from Sealy and Stearns & Foster ($599+) cushion bodies while they sleep at night or during midday cat naps. Bookcases ($299+) add personality to living rooms by displaying favorite novels or a single copy of Simon & Garfunkel's Bookends. A solid-wood specialist, Fish Furniture also offers free delivery and courtesy touchups to furniture that sustained injury during room rearrangements.
When Seymour and Esther Fischgrund founded Fish Furniture in 1925, the couple personally stained, painted, and housebroke each piece before sending it home with a customer. Today, Fish Furniture operates a bit more efficiently, but with the same attention to detail and quality. In the eight-plus decades since opening, the business has grown from 2 employees to 47. It features a pair of 40,000-square-foot show rooms, inside of which sit upholstery, bedroom sets, and office trimmings bearing solid-wood construction and the names of well-known manufacturers. Outside the show rooms, Fish's staff travels to homes to provide interior-design advice, and its courtesy touchups mend scuffs and scrapes in a more fashionable manner than haphazardly placed band-aids.
