Metro Furniture Show's founders started their now multimillion-dollar operation by selling mattresses out of their garage-turned-storefront. Today, they take on big-name furniture companies while staying true to their startup roots, outfitting homes with a wide range of furnishings that they sell for less than traditional retailers sell them.
Visitors the Metro Furniture Show find pieces suitable for all rooms of the home, from sleek leather sofa sets from Fossil and Soho to herds of pillow-top mattresses ideal for cushioning falls in the unlicensed amusement park in the backyard. Metro Furniture Show also outfits homes with appliances and electronics.

Catherine Thomas loves a good discount as much as the next shopper. Unlike most shoppers, however, she's in a unique position to make those discounts happen; Catherine just happens to be the sales manager at Signature Furniture Outlet. Fortunately for her customers, she chooses to run them frequently, marking down brand-name furniture for every room and electronics. Ashley furniture sets spruce up living room, Simmons Beauty Rest mattresses ease owners to restful sleep, and Frigidaire facilitate at-home cryogenics experiments. All of these discounts mean that Catherine's customers can often purchase their furniture outright, avoiding money-sucking tactics such as rent-to-own along the way.
