Multiple VMS students recommend this place, which sells used furniture that was previously rented by Aaron Rents and returned. They’re a little out of the way, but they’ve got lots of stuff available in their showroom and in a back room that is filled with returned pieces. Students have gotten couches here for pretty cheap, and they have a full array of bedroom, living room, office and dining room furniture.

Great selection of furniture with good prices. Their quality is good and furniture is more trendy than other places.
Cool Springs: 1770 Galleria Blvd
Rivergate: 2130 Gallatin Pike North
This place is reasonably priced and has comfortable furniture for all your needs. Plus, since it’s located near other furniture stores, a day trip north to Rivergate or Cool Springs might be worth your while.

Big Lots offers a variety of inexpensive furniture. Much of it is of the particle board assemble-yourself variety, but they have a few more options that the usual Walmart and Target stuff.
Charlotte Pike: 3734 Annex Ave.
A second-hand store with really good stuff (much better than thrift stores, but you also pay a little more).
Bellevue Center Mall (Highway 70S)
Some students have furnished their entire apartments with furniture from here. It is huge with a large selection. One caveat, though: there is apparently a history of sudden bankruptcies, so don’t leave anything on lay-a-way. All couches are $399 and this place is highly recommended by medical students.

Several VMS IIs bought furniture fro Nashville Discount Furniture last year, and highly recommend it. The owner was extremely nice. Some of the furniture comes in pieces, so you may want to ask if someone can help you with assembly.

If you’re looking for an entire room of furniture — main pieces, lamps, and tables — consider this store. If you just need a single piece, though, the prices tend to be expensive.
Cool Springs: 8103 Moores Lane
Rivergate: 2253 Gallatin Pike North
This place not only sells discounted mattresses but also discounted bed frames! Really cheap and you get even more of a discount if you tell them you’re a Vandy student!
3613 Nolensville Road
A big warehouse full of bargains on washers and dryers, big-screen TVs, and mattresses. If you’re looking for large appliances this is a great place; however, come prepared with comparison prices to make sure the salesman is giving you a good deal!
642 Thompson Lane
Another great place for office furniture and supplies.

Located in the Green Hills Mall, Z Gallerie has an interesting selection of furnishings, paintings, and décor. It can be pricey, but a great place to go for inspiration if nothing else.
