Bernstein Furniture Company
154 Harvard Ave. Allston; (617) 782-7972
One of the several furniture stores along this stretch of Harvard Avenue, Bernstein’s has a large selection of beds, sofas, bookcases, lamps, and accessories. The service is friendly and thorough; they will assemble and/or deliver pieces within the Boston area.
You can find a three-piece bed set of mattress, foundation, and frame for as little as $120 (twin size) or $150 (full). Futon frames of 1 heavy pine are $109 in full size, and they have futon mattresses too. There are several styles of lamps, such as a white-lacquered three-lamp tree for $40. Most of the furniture here is made from solid wood. And, if you really poke around, you may find a slightly damaged piece at a further-re-duced price.
Similar stores on the block include: Carpet Works, at 137 Harvard Avenue, telephone (617) 787-5064; and Boston Paint Supply, 151 Harvard Avenue, (617) 254-1060.
