I am not a furniture guy. I'm still someone who thinks that paying in the three figures is a lot for most furniture, much less four or five. Nevertheless, even I can't resist taking a peek into Conran's and every now and again buying something (particularly from their semi-annual warehouse sales). Conran's simply has wonderfully designed furniture and furnishings that really appeal to my design sensibility: elegant, modern, clean, and comfortable. You'll have a good time looking around, even if most stuff will be out of your price range.
One word of warning: if you do go to the warehouse sales, go early. The best stuff gets snatched up also instantaneously.
