If you’ve ever shopped for furniture, you know it’s a nightmare. The big box retailers are more interested in financing matching sets of end tables than matching you with a timeless piece that will be with you for decades. Or worse, they make you pick up your furniture from a warehouse and put it together yourself. At Morris Sokol, the experience is different. Still owned and operated by the Sokol family, the historic shop may have been around since the 20th century, but it has kept relentlessly up to date, providing a wide range of furniture, from simple and affordable to gorgeous and costly. The massive three-story building is packed with living room vignettes, dining room tables, swivel rockers, outdoor couches, and bedroom suites. No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find it here. The in-house design services are helpful, you can negotiate yourself a good deal, and they will have your new stuff delivered faster than you can get home yourself. When it comes to Morris Sokol, we have to say there’s truth in advertising — Morris Sokol is well worth the trip downtown.
