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.
