Like Cort (above), Putnam leases new home and office furniture and sells pieces that come back in order to keep styles current. PFO, however, has more stock; and a lot of it is eve-ryday-type furniture, as opposed to fancy designer styles. You can profit nicely by this system; one recent example was a bedroom set a solid pine headboard, dresser, chest, mirror, and two nightstands for $900; new, the same ensemble would retail around $2,000. The stock is primarily of high quality, like a large mahogany executive’s desk reduced from $1,600 to just $448. There was also one in walnut for $144.
Of course, you can buy individual pieces as well; and if you prefer a new version of anything you see, chances are they can order it for you. Sales pitches are not heavy-pressure. Open seven days in Central Square, closed Sundays in Porter Square.
