5. Are there other similar items available?
In most cases, more than one manufacturer provides the same or similar products. Once you find the type/configuration of furniture you are looking for, look around, call around.
Unlike cars (and like clothes) furniture is made by some big companies and - just as competently - by lots of little ones. Very few products are "exclusive." There are design differences, and we believe strongly in the protection of the Designer's Rights, however, common configurations, like file cabinets, have subtle differences beyond price that may be important to you.
Our best advice? Shop around.
