Before furniture, a person concealed a room's bareness by piling fig leaves over its vents or by throwing a neverending rave in it. Fill empty nests with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $200 toward mattresses and home furnishings at Ashley Jordan's Furniture in Vincennes or Princeton.
At both of Ashley Jordan's locations, staffers navigate patrons through more than 40,000 square feet of showroom space populated with bedroom, living room, and dining room products by Ashley Furniture, Serta, and Tempur-Pedic. Vast new dreamscapes await those who repose upon a new twin mattress ($69+) or plush pillowtop queen set ($299+). Sink into a sofa ($399+) after a hard day at work, or gather the kinsfolk at a dining-table-and-four-chair set ($399) that makes for a more enjoyable shared meal than firing wads of mashed potato at one another's mouths via trebuchet. A 42-inch television stand ($299) can accommodate an entire collection of miniature TVs, and a decorative rug warms up chilly floorboards while adding elegance ($99).
Ashley Jordan's Furniture's professionals will escort newly adopted furnishings to their new home provided it is located within 30 miles of the stores. Though purchasing a new mattress or sofa can inspire owners to guard their purchases by enlisting the help of a plastic cover or the stain-fighting power of Suge Knight, all products come with warranties.
