I know a lot of dwellers who would love to buy eclectic secondhand furniture but complain that it's too time consuming to run from place to place looking for the right piece when they can just pop in to a chain furniture retailer and reliably find what they need. Fair enough. Thankfully, Eddie's Furniture, an unassuming storefront in Somerville, MA, offers a deep inventory of ridiculously affordable rejuvenated secondhand pieces...
A lovely refinished china cabinet for the dining room or as a stereo cabinet for the living room ($375).
Eddie's niche is repairing and painting antique, retro or vintage pieces with eye-popping water-based paints. No more hit or miss secondhand stores.
Unlike other secondhand shops, where too often the selection doesn't appeal to the modern design seeker, every time you go to Eddie's you're certain to find not one, but many gems you'd like to bring home. Eddie, a gregarious down-to-earth handy man originally from Brazil, prides himself on giving high quality, solid wood pieces made in New England, a new lease on life.
Eddie's business model is to keep things extremely affordable so that the inventory is constantly changing, bringing his fans back again and again.
Eddie also upholsters and makes custom furniture, at a fraction of the cost of competitors, without sacrificing quality. Employing a local carpenter and reclaimed wood, Eddie can create the perfect piece in whatever color you'd like.
Maybe you have an old piece of furniture taking up space in your attic and you just can't seem to get around to refinishing it or painting it. If so, bring it to Eddie's. For a reasonable price, he'll do it for you.
Another unrivaled service of Eddie's Furniture: FREE delivery in the immediate area!
So when you're ready to mix things up a little, pick up some modern rustic pieces from Eddie's Furniture, a place unlike any other in the Greater Boston area. And for you out-of-towners, it's worth the trip! But be warned, since the inventory changes constantly, Eddie's is habit-forming.
