Best deal in Portland!
I came across this furniture store while driving down 82nd and I couldn't miss the bold black, white, and red logo. I came in just browsing, and ended up buying a microsuede light lime sectional, 2 cofee tables, a loveseat (specially ordered), and one of Albea Iris' exclusive brand mattresses. It had a memory foam pillow top and after sleeping on it, it is much better than a Tempur-Pedic (which I've slept on before as well.)

The manager was very professional and friendly, and when I wanted a different color in one of the loveseats, it was no problem. It came in three weeks later and they delivered it right away directly to my apartment. My sectional also had to be special ordered because I wanted the chaise lounge on the opposite side. They were so willing to make this special order, with no extra charge, and delivered it within weeks as well.
The store's furniture is a mix of Asian contemporary with a European accent. It is better than IKEA (which is made of cheap material), Dania, Scan Design, and all of those other furniture places that cost three or four times as much and specialize in contemporary furniture.
My experience at Albea Iris Furniture was one that was so enjoyable, I would definitely go back. I want more, and everytime I recommend this furniture store to a friend, they end up buying something, and being very, very happy with it. The furniture is made in Japan, New York, and Hong Kong, and it feels so luxurious and expensive, that I can't believe it didn't deplete my wallet! This is the best hidden place in Portland, and compared to "Hip" furniture store, it has the same stuff for thousands of dollars less.
I recommend this store highly to anyone interested in not breaking their bank, but adding luxury and quality furniture to their home!!
