I have been shopping for a sofa for several months, and I found myself leaving every furniture store I visited thinking ""There have to be better furniture stores than this in Houston!"" Then a friend told me about High Fashion Home - it was EXACTLY what I was looking for!! Granted, furniture is very personal. But if you've been to Louis Shanks, Noel, Ethan Allen, Star, etc. (all of which are fine stores, if that's your style) and can't find what you're looking for, GO TO HIGH FASHION HOME. I would describe the general style as modern/chic but classic. The sales people are very friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful (my mom called with a general description of something she was looking for, and by the end of the day, a salesperson had emailed her pictures of several items matching her description... she bought one of them). They have an extensive selection (and not just furniture... they carry lamps, rugs, art, etc.) - four huge floors (the space is well organized, making it easy to navigate). Styles, fabrics, and construction materials you will not find anywhere else in Houston. High quality for very reasonable prices (I got a sofa, armchair, and ottoman, all in one of the highest-grade fabrics, for about $3500, including tax and delivery).
Pros: quality, value, customer service
