When no one is home, armchairs like to lean back, kick up their foot rests, and gossip about high-profile affairs between thrones and massage chairs. Give old chairs new company with today's Groupon: for $99, you get $300 worth of furniture and home accessories from the Bertlien Imports Furniture catalogue. Catalogues are available at the store's location in Riverdale. Delivery charges, not included in this Groupon, are $50 for the first 30 miles and $2 for every additional mile.
Bertlien Imports Furniture culls modern tables, chairs, couches, and rugs from importers of elegance such as Acme Furniture and Pacific Imports. Glossy pages reveal domestic accessories more functional than roof-spanning fedoras—the minimalist black-top computer desk stands on metal legs connected by silver rings ($255, item #800220), and a 5’x7’ rug festoons floors with interlocking rectangles rendered in warm tones ($195, item #970003). Sneakers become fascinating when they rest on an oak shoe rack ($177, item #900610), and carpets turn into grazing grounds for a zebra-pattern accent chair ($300, item #460505) and cylindrical, hand-painted zebra cabinet ($405, item #900365).
