Everything From This New Apartment-Size Furniture Brand Is Under $2,000
The Manual offers luxurious furniture without the designer price tag.
Moving into a new place is exciting, but this milestone often comes with a heavy dose of sticker shock once you start furniture shopping. Lucky for budget-conscious shoppers, there are numerous stylish options at affordable prices. If you, like me, are working with a limited budget and drawn to beautiful, vintage-inspired design, then let me introduce you to The Manual.
Specializing in art deco-style furniture at a mid-level price point, The Manual uses a direct-to-consumer model to help keep costs relatively low. All sofas fall under $1,500 with accent chair prices topping out at $600. The best part? Everything ships in two days for a flat rate of $95.
Even though the brand offers cheaper prices than its "big box" store competitors (ahem, West Elm), the quality doesn't suffer. Each piece is made from European pine or oak wood and the fabrics are "life-proof", made to withstand any kind of stain.
