Celebrate Nature with Art!

Spring isn't just about sneezing. As the sun begins to make a regular appearance and blossoms peek out from tree branches and flowerbeds, why not also give your walls a facelift with a pretty nature print ? We have many floor samples on the walls available for immediate purchase. If you don't see what you want on our walls, we can set you up to peruse catalogs that are stock full of great wall art.

Visit us at 25 West 43rd Avenue, San Mateo
Or, on the web @  &

Ouch! Feeling the sting of an economic slump makes it difficult to get in the mood to buy new furniture. But great style and a tiny budget really can walk hand in hand.
At Sofa Outlet, we have competitive prices on our custom furniture lines, and if you have a specific budget in mind, don't be afraid to let us know. We're often able to work within the confines of  quite restrictive budgets. Our staff knows where to find the great deals, what floor samples are priced to go, or where to find bargains in many of our catalog lines. It's easy to balance the books by spending more of your budget on a main piece of furniture, and filling in with smaller pieces from our catalog lines. Come down this weekend and let us help you practice Sofanomics.

Lesson of the 3 C's

Comparison, Choice, Copy

Compare: On a recent recognizance mission, we compared some of our offerings to those of Crate and Barrel. Many of our styles where spot on. We compared the Crate and Barrel sofa styles, Axis, Tailor, Silouette, and Petrie, the Eiffel chair, and the bed styles Colette and Quadrant.
In every instance we beat the competitor on price and turn around time, but that doesn't begin to tell the whole story. That brings us to:
Choice: At Sofa Outlet, there are thousands of fabrics to choose from on every single upholstered style that we offer. Additionally, if you have a hard time configuring your room, and would just love it if only that 65 inch chaise came in a 60 inch length, at Sofa Outlet, we can make that happen. Not so with the big corporate stores. Our California made upholstery is fully customizable, and our well trained staff is easily able to assist you in choosing the right options to suit your needs. Our competitiors, who contract out their designs to a number of different factories, don't have that kind of flexibility.
Copy: It's fair to say that Sofa Outlet has a reputation for being copycatters. We've made a name for ourselves by offering custom made copies of well known furniture styles. But our copies are still quality. Made in California, kiln dried hardwood frames, sinuous spring suspension construction, high density foam cushions, does any of this sound familiar? Now, let's take a look at these copycats and see what Sofa Outlet has built their 14 years of business on:
