What’s the Word on the Street?

Thank-You

Hey, we’re always telling you how awesome we are – how we have the best brands and greatest selection, how our customer service is top notch and our prices can’t be beat – but don’t just take our word for it! Listen to our customers and what they have to say – they’d know better than us, right? Here’s the word on the street:


My husband and I recently purchased a living room sectional and two recliner chairs, We are very pleased with our purchases. We had bought 2 recliners 18 months ago. They were terrible. They were difficult to use and did not stay in the reclining position. We spent a great deal of time at Suburban finding just the right one. Actually we had a couple that we were interested in, all American made. We are super happy with our choice. They are very comfortable, really soft micro fiber fabric. We were able to choose our fabric at no additional cost, plus we were able to have them made in swivel recliner style. Our sectional is exactly what we wanted. Elise spent a great deal of time with us helping us make our decision. The furniture was delivered at two different times and both sets of delivery men were very nice. Our driveway is 1/10th of a mile long and curvy. Both drivers backed down our driveway without going off on the side. Not an easy task at all. We will certainly return to Suburban for all of our furniture purchases! ~Sharon

Our delivery drivers are rock stars, are they not? And we’re so happy Elise was able to help you find the perfect furniture for your living room! Thanks so much for the kind words!


We purchased a king mattress, box spring, and frame from Margot Gaab yesterday evening. The choices, options, and the service were all above our expectations. The holiday sale and the knowledge of the sales staff made our purchase less painful than expected! Our mattress arrived this morning. We received an automatic phone call that told us the delivery truck was “ten minutes away.” Ten minutes later, two of the most efficient, professional truckers disassembled and removed our old bed. (And were gracious and patience and didn’t mind when we vacuumed under the bed!) Michael and Edwardo had the new bed set up, the old mattress and all the packing gone in minutes. We are extremely happy with the entire Suburban Furniture shopping experience. (A special shout-out to Gene, too!) ~Diane & Peter

Margot, Michael, Edwardo, & Gene all say THANK YOU! They were all extremely glad to be able to help out.


I recently purchased a house full of furniture for my new home. Debi and her husband Gene were so helpful with all of my selections. Everything looks great and fits perfectly. I was able to get the unique look that I was going for. All of the staff at Suburban are kind and friendly. The gentlemen delivering my furniture made it smooth and seamless. They were courteous, polite and efficient. Thanks to all! ~Teresa

No, thank YOU, Teresa! We know how important it is to get that specific look you want, especially in a brand-new home, and we’re so grateful we were able to help you achieve your vision!


Like we said, don’t take it from us. Take the word of all those happy customers (who particularly enjoyed our amazing delivery drivers!). We’re here to make your life a little simpler. Period. So let us.

Short on Space? Furniture that Fits

Jersey is a crowded place, there’s no doubt about that. And as it continues to grow and spaces become more urbane, it means that more and more people will likely be living in slightly smaller spaces a la NYC or West Jersey. There’s even a chance that you’re already living in an apartment that’s on the small side or are just lacking in space in general. So how can you utilize the space you have when it comes to furniture and decorating?

We found something rather neat, currently on Kickstarter, that may be the answer to the small space living problem (at the least, it looks helpful!). It’s called “Bookniture” and is based off creator and industrial designer Mike Mak’s experience living in Hong Kong (talk about limited space!). Bookniture looks just like a Moleskine notebook when folded up. But in just a flip, it expands to form a functional piece of furniture that can serve as a small table, nightstand, stool, ottoman or standing work desk. No, seriously. How cool is that? It’s made using traditional book-binding technologies and out of honeycomb boards.

While we may not have a solution quite as “cool” as Bookniture, we do offer plenty of solutions to furnishing small spaces here at Suburban Furniture. We have sleeper sofas (full size and up) at affordable prices so your living room can double as your bedroom. Need a place to eat that won’t take up a lot of space? We have everything from small pub tables that take up very little space to corner tables that include storage space. Try a loft bed with bookcase and storage or a bunk bed that includes a desk and workspace. Whatever your needs, we have a solution.
