Does anyone have a good ideas on where to get office decor items(coffee tables, bookshelves, etc)

From indy’s getting out of the business.

Yeah… I will take your table, desk and your book, what do you say $20?

You mean other than a furniture store? 

  Craig's List.  You can find just about anything on there.  It'll be used, but unless you're wanting to go to the furniture store and drop big $$$ on new stuff, used isn't a bad thing.  You may also want to look at consignment shops in town.  Even antique shops would be a place to see what you can find.  Just depends on what you're looking for.

Yeah I know, kind of a dumb question… Tried the usual places, can’t find bookshelves that match the current decor, AND that I am willing to pay for(getting cheap)…

I was going to say what Spiff said, Craigslist.

  Also do a search for auctions in your area.  Most cities have a place that does auctions for companies that are going out of business.

I bought some pretty nice barely used furniture from my landlord…it was from a mortgage company that went and skipped out early on their lease, but left the furniture behind.  Cost me pennies on the dollar.

Anyone interested in any real input:
 This is assuming you want quality and value, not cheap shit.

I bought some stuff from a furniture liquidator a few years ago - boardroom table, chairs, etc. But it was new, not used (overstocks I assume).  I got the stuff, good price.

We just outfitted our office and found internet deals on everything.  Find what you want online then use a coupon-site to get discounts.

In larger metropolitan many wirehouse branches have been/are in the process of being shut down (excuse me, “consolidated”) following a merger.  Tons of suddenly surplus furniture there that they have to blow out - way larger opportunity than trying to find an indy shutting down.
