Modern Furniture Vendors that Offer Payment Programs?

Q: I'm thinking about buying my first non vintage, non scuzzy sofa but am only attracted to ones that are in the $3,000 range. Since I'm still a poor person, I wanted to know if there are places where I could set up a payment schedule for a sleek modern sofa, like the Jane bi-sectional by Gus. I'm too embarrassed to wander into higher end shops and ask for this without knowing ahead of time. Is this deffered payment stuff something that only existed in the 80's for nasty designs?

Editor: Hmmm — It seems that most payment programs have been replaced by store credit cards — though many larger retailers offer no interest on store credit card purchases for a specific time frame (up to a year at Pottery Barn). Here is what we dug up:

Pottery Barn – No Payment or Interest for 12 Months when you spend $1,000
IKEA NO INTEREST if paid within 90 days on purchases over $299
