Though their clean lines and excellent acoustics make empty houses superficially appealing, no furniture means no place to hide when the tax collector shows up demanding a second date. Camouflage yourself in furniture-made nooks and crannies with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $150 worth of home furnishings at Simon's Furniture in Franklin.
With 100 years of experience kitting out homes in fine furnishings, Simon's Furniture offers home dwellers a dizzying array of pieces to decorate domiciles. Customers can stroll through the 30,000-square-foot show room to search out appropriate appointment for inappropriately bare rooms or to find the perfect replacement for banshee-gnawed breakfronts.
End tables (starting at $99) provide ideal surfaces for displaying decanters of fine liquor or for conspicuously exhibiting World's Best Dad trophies to lesser, visiting dads. Kids can repose on twin mattresses and box springs (from $299), which double as space savers in close-quartered guestrooms. Sofas (from $397) furnish sufficient lounging space for disaffected dilettantes, and recliners (starting at $299) provide incomparable comfort for game-day TV viewing. Though not included in the Groupon, furniture buyers who lack moving vans or pack mules can avail themselves of the delivery service, ferrying newly bought pieces to all of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and southern New Hampshire five days a week.
