Shop Tour: Green Front Furniture in Manassas

I saved my favorite shop tour (which is more like a warehouse tour) for the last post of the week.

Green Front Furniture is synonymous with Farmville, a small town about an hour south of Charlottesville here in Central Virginia. Did you know that Green Front has a Northern Virginia outpost? I can't believe that it took me ten years of business travel in NOVA to realize that there was a massive warehouse full of gorgeous furniture right in Manassas. I recently made my first visit and I was completely blown away by the quality and prices of what I saw.

The warehouse is in an industrial area of Manassas that has started to develop more in recent years. The road where Green Front is located doesn't have much on it, but the asphalt has turn-offs already created for future roads (if you have seen some of the new development in Loudoun and Prince William counties, you know those little turn-offs that go into grass. There is a "am I really in NOVA" quality to this place because it is so quiet!

Just past that power line pole (no idea what they are called when they are that big!) was a crew building the next segment of the line.

The front of the warehouse is where employees park and enter. The public entrance is on the back side of the building and is marked by a large, black awning.

There isn't much information online about this place. Some of the reviews are really bad. There are people complaining about "old" furniture that is "overpriced." I think those people must shop for furniture at Ikea because this place is incredible. The brands are some of the ones you might see in top shelter magazines. I saw a lot of Hickory Chair, Henredon, Maitland-Smith, Hancock & Moore, Harden, Century, Sherrill...you get the point. Some items are tagged "from market" and some are definitely recognizable from ads. 

Some reviews also complain about the service, but I found everyone to be so incredibly nice here. I had car trouble and a woman at the front desk quickly looked up the nearest gas station for me. One woman gave me her card and showed me how to read the price tags. Another man checked in with me after I had been browsing for a while. I really enjoyed my visit.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. This first set is mostly Hickory Chair furniture.






In that corner is a chest I considered for the front hall. Retail on it is about $5,600. It was $2,600 here.







Of course I had to take a close up..






This huge bed, which had to be 8-10 feet tall, was about $5,500.









I thought my search for a hall chest was over. I loved this! It had some chipping on the leg, though. Pretty lamp, too!


I loved this chest as well! The price was unbelievable.







Lots of Chiang Mai Dragon.










The pair of chairs in the photo below almost came home with me.



Just a pile of furniture!






This vignette was so cool...not right for my house, but someone could have an instant living room if they wanted it!




This demi-lune was so interesting. The top was beautiful.





All of these queen headboards were about $520. Beautifully  made, nice tufts, lots of nailhead trim. 










Instant wine cellar!


Navy blue...and the knobs and drawer liners were so pretty!






I love puzzle tables!





There's a second section of the building for more "casual" furniture. There were some cool bar cabinets in there. Funny that I just took pictures of the pretty things.
