We purchased a new queen size mattress and adjustable bed on May 30, 2014

The mattress floor model that we tested was much more softer than the one delivered. The staff continued to try to make us wait 30 days before exchanging it. The salesman sold me on a different adjustable bed (saying it had a special discount of $300). In reality, it was an older model being phased out. Several other inaccurate comments were made by the sales staff before/after the sale. The invoice from the store and the invoice in the GW system are different! Although we were told (by the store salesman) that both items could be returned in 7 days if we were not satisfied, GW would not refund either the mattress or the bed. (Watch out for the color folder that is handed out with the invoice at the time of purchase, it has the fine print). We were finally allowed a credit to exchange for another mattress, but the amount of the credit was lower by $160.00 than the original invoice! The reasoning for this was that GW had pricing promotions on the day of the sale, paying 2X the sales tax (this was not correct per our invoice or the store flyer of that day). We didn't asked for a refund, but we requested if an equal exchange for furniture would be allowed (GW denied this, only allowing another mattress of the authorized credit value).

The customer service department (
) was responsive to answering messages, but declined to involve any upper management or forward contact information. The store manager and staff did not help in any manner. We have been a good customer at GW, spending thousands of dollars prior to this purchase (and never returned an item or made a complaint before). We were treated poorly without any regard to past purchases, thus, any and all future business from us (and family) will go elsewhere.

Upon delivery of the furniture we mentioned to the drivers that the set cushions needed to be attached to the dining room chairs. They felt a service person from the store would be better equipped to do this and would arrange it. This never happened. We spoke to a store salesman who said they would ask the furniture representative how to attach the cushions. This did not happen. I called and spoke to sales manager who describe over the phone how she felt they should attach. Each chair cost about 200.00 dollars and the cushions attach with Velcro . This does not work well and the cushions slide. Now because it is 3 months later they will not exchange the item. I am aware that 3 months is a long time to have a item before it is returned/exchanged however, we do not live in the area permanently so follow up between delivery and realization of a error in design functionality was delayed. In addition, the store did not return calls or follow through with what they said they would do for us.

Couch & loveseat were ordered and delivered approx. 12 weeks after order. We had previously purchased other furniture valued at approx. $3000.00. Upon delivery we noticed a defect in the loveseat stitching below one of the cushions. The delivery men agreed and took pictures of the defect to bring back to the store. We were first told that the loveseat would be replaced, then told that the manufacturer could not match the couch, but they would send someone out to fix the defect.
The person they sent was rude, obnoxious and insulting to me, denied there was a defect, claimed it was normal and told me he had been delivering furniture for 20 years and new better than I. He refused to do anything, said he had not been sent to fix the problem and that I was wrong. I told him to leave my premises. I then got a call from the store reiterating that they felt there was no defect and I was out of luck. Remember, a few weeks earlier they offered to replace the loveseat.
We spent a total of approx. $9000.00 at this store over 6 months, what a mistake. They love to take your money for their expensive furniture, but DO NOT stand behind any issues.
We will never shop there again

We bought our Scape Bed and Latex Supreme Mattresses from the Original
Mattress Factory on 1/11/2008. We also purchased the Platinum Mattress
pads(Waterproof). We each got a twin XL. For
about a year my husband had been complaining about not being able to get comfortable in his bed.
This went off and finally I stopped in the local
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
and
talked to
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
. He was the one that actually sold us the beds. I was
surprised he was still there. He could not find us in the computer. So I had to find my
original bill and take it back to him. I finally found and he looked it up. He said the
bed was still under warranty and he would send someone out to pick it up.
The man came and he checked out the mattress and he said it is not right. One
side is flattened. He was ready to take it back and we removed the
Platinum Mattress Pad (Waterproof) and there was a stain on one side right in the
middle. I didn't even know it was stained. He said no way that he can take in a
stained mattress. I asked how to clean it. He said maybe a Tide Stain
Stick. I said I was shocked that we used your pads
and they were supposed to be water proof. He said if they were
our pads, then somebody should be paying for this bed. He left.
I went back down to the OMF and talked to
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
again. I told him what the
guy said. He said you have to contact the mattress pad company. They could
not take back a stained bed. I went home and contacted the mattress company.It
was on June 9, 2014. It was through Legett &
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
Inc. Consumer Products Group. They
asked when the stain appeared, I said I did not know.
They send me an email with what I needed to send to them.
I did and enclosed a picture of the stain. I receive a form letter from
them saying the incident was not reported within 5 days as required by the
warranty OR the protector was not sent back within 5 days of registering the
claim and/or receiving the replacement protector. I
called them back again. I said I
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
’t know when it happened, but I
contacted them within 5 days of finding the stain. She said I will see what I can do. I
received a package from them with two new protectors and a bottle of
cleaner. They asked for me to send the old protector back with the name in magic
marker and they would test it. I packed it up and paid to ship it back on June
23,2014. I used the spray bottle and nothing happened
at all. I called again on
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
10, 2014 and
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked

said they were running behind on testing. I received a reply saying it was not
covered we abused the mattress pad. I found an
online site the sold natural enzyme cleaners for urine stains.
It was guaranteed to remove up to 30 year old stains. I was not sure
our stain was urine or sweat. So I bought a bottle. It
lightened up the stain but made a darker circle around it. So I
contacted the site again and they said maybe I didn’t use enough. So I bought
2 more bottles this time and we just used them and the stain is bigger now. As of now, he has had to
sleep on an air mattress three times for 2 nights. I am at my wit’s end. It is a catch
22 situation and I
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
’t know what else to do. I am thinking I may have to
turn it over to an attorney. My question is.. if you can’t take this one back
because it has a stain, why can’t you just give him a new bed that isn’t broken? I have pictures and documents.

Like other people, I also vowed to never shop here again after 1 horrible experience. I ended up deciding to buy the console table that went with the set we bought about 5-6 months ago, to put into our foyer so that everything would match. I had a different sales person this time who was a little on the "shady" side (
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
- female). When I asked how much shipping was for this 1 small table, she just said $90, nothing else. We got a call from the delivery people and they said they would only deliver on Wednesday or Thursday because we had discounted shipping. I just called the store and explained what happened and spoke with
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
and she said sorry, but it's on your sheet and someone highlighted it when you checked out. I asked why no one actually said this to me and just kind of did it on the back end and she said sorry but there is nothing we can do unless you want to pay an additional $50 - to deliver a foyer table. I said, there is something you can do, you just aren't willing to and this was my third occasion buying something at the store - I'm a repeat customer! I can't believe that they aren't willing to do this for me and deliver the stupid table on a Saturday, now we have to take off of work, when this was not explained to me UP FRONT! (I'm sorry, I am one of the stupid people that don't read the fine print and don't think the worst of my sales person) The last 2 transactions I had, did not have this problem. The first time I had a coupon for free shipping and they delivered on Saturday and the second time I paid $90 and they delivered on Saturday! I'm not willing to spend anymore time and effort on this, because during my last transaction I called the manager multiple times and he just ignored me, never called me back and had someone else who was SO RUDE call me and make me feel terrible. I will NEVER shop here again, they treat their customers horribly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!!

I purchased a cantilever umbrella and a patio dining set from
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
’s over the Memorial Day weekend 2014. I was happy with the purchase and the price was reasonable. As part of the purchase, I also got an umbrella cover (Make/Model – Treasure Garden/CP908) to protect it from the elements when it wasn’t in use.
Less than two months after, in
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
2014, the umbrella cover ripped at the point where the long rod in the cover no longer stays in place and is constantly falling out. An umbrella cover ripping after less than two months of use isn’t what I would consider “normal wear and tear”, and I attempted to return it to
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
’s for a new one. I liked the cover, and I just considered this a one-time defect. When I attempted to return it, a not-so-friendly staff person told me that covers are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. This policy is also stated in the fine print when you sign the purchase agreement.
I found this to beunacceptable. I understand that normal wear and tear means it shouldn’t be returnable, but this was a defect. A cover shouldn’t rip or tear after that short period of time. I doubt Treasure Garden would say this is normal wear and tear either. If they did, I wonder who would even buy the product.
I suppose what really is upsetting is that I spent several thousand dollars at
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
’s, and they won’t exchange a $45 umbrella cover. If this is how they treat their customers, this isn’t going to create a lot of customer loyalty. I certainly won’t be shopping there again.

We are selling our condo and moving to another state. We needed a piece of furniture in the condo for staging (that would later go to NC) and furniture in NC. Delivery dates were critical.
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
understood our situation and worked every possible way to accommodate us. The cost of the furniture was minimal compared to the time their staff (a shout-out to
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
) put into making it come together. Although this was one part of a complicated situation for us,
Lake View Designer Furniture Provider Name Locked
made it a lot easier for us to position our condo for sale.

The installer said he needed to come back to finish up. I called twice to remind him, he finally returned my 2nd call 2 weeks later and said he would come the next day. He never showed up. I called a 3rd time and have not heard from him.

, the owner, is the most talented wood worker I have ever worked with. He made sure exactly what I wanted and had the pieces CNC'd. He even made mock ups to show me before making the cherry originals to make sure it was what I wanted. I had made a design of a table that I wanted for our banquette.

was able to take the drawing and make it come alive. The number of finishes he puts on are really good and perfectly smooth. I would say a better finish that the Amish furniture I have. He told me he has built a lot of items for
