GREAT customer service
i don't know why people had problems with the customer service. my girlfriend and i had a great time with the sales person and the warehouse people.

the salesperson was patient and knowledgeable, and when we decided we wanted what was in the window, he told us he could get us a new one at floor model price.

the warehouse people were quick at the loading zone, and also very friendly. when my dad and i had trouble loading it into our apartment (our own fault), they even gave us some replacement parts at no cost. very helpful.

the furniture is catchy, and reasonably priced. if it fits your style, i'd highly suggest shopping here. my experience with the staff was stellar (and we're young, so we're used to being ignored at pricier stores).

Refreshing inventory
I found Area 51 to take a step aside from the homogenized design you see at many other furniture stores. Contemporary furniture, clean lines, rich wood and metal pieces. Whenever I walk the floor, I never leave without finding at least a few pieces that I wouldn't mind owning. Prices seem to range from reasonable to higher than expected, but if you find a piece that you truly appreciate instead of filling a space, then it's worth it to me.

cheap but cheap is all that is by Hemlata P. at InsiderPages
With modern furniture design at an affordable price and a hip location to boot, Area 51 has found its niche. Its market consists of those who have graduated from the IKEA school and want products that are a little more distinctive, but who aren't willing to pay high-end prices. One can find new and used products here, ranging from Dwell bedding to the occasional Eero Aarnio Ball Chair as well as modern sofas, tables and rugs.

However, where Area 51 provides in product selection, it takes away in service. This change has happened recently because when it first opened, the service was outstanding. Two years ago, I purchased a chair from this store and got a great deal on it, as the owner knocked the price down significantly because the product had a negligible defect. Naturally, this kind of situation promotes repeat business.

Yet, subsequent trips to Area 51 have proved its service completely inadequate. Last time I visited the store, which was about a month ago, I was looking for a specific type of bookcase. The employee was extremely unhelpful and would not even come up with alternative ideas on where I could find something similar; he just said, We don't carry anything like that, and turned around. That's deplorable and it's why I'll be taking my business elsewhere.

Unfortunately, the lack of options in this market make Area 51 just about the only place to go for affordable, non-mass produced design in Seattle. If anyone wants a money making idea, open a store similar to Area 51 and provide better service, which isn't hard to do.

Nice selection, kind of pricey by Barbara P. at InsiderPages
Area 51, located in Capitol Hill, is a very trendy, very retro, very mod furniture store. Lots of plastic and plexiglass and chrome and geometry. THink Barbarella...

At any rate, they do have interesting furniture and accessories but hooo doggie are they way expensive. I saw a couch in there that I SWEAR my uncle had in his living room in the mid 70's that he got from JC Penny for no MORE than $500 for the whole living room set, and Area 51 is selling it (just the couch) for $2500?? Oi vey.

Their stuff is neat for sure but it is terribly unaffordable. However jealous I am that my pad will never look as striking and chromey as it would if I could afford to shop at Area 51, I still enjoy going there just to look around at all the stuff. It really makes me hate my parents for throwing out all the ugly 1970's furniture I grew up around. If they hadn't thrown it out, I could have easily sold it to Area 51 and be a billionaire by now.

Thanks alot, mom and dad....

Excellent furniture
I often seek out new furniture shops around town whenever I need a new piece and no matter what, I always find what I'm looking for at Area 51. They have a great selection and the value is as good or better than what you can find on the web. I've been impressed with their quality and style and I have 2 rooms full of Area 51 furniture to prove it.
