Default Ottawa furniture stores - dining table

Can anyone recommend a good furniture store in Ottawa to look for a dining room table and chairs?
We've been to the major chains (Brick, Leons, Colonial) and they mostly seem to have laminent sets and we've also checked out a few of the higher end stores which offer solid wood tables with custom stain and chair selection (Ormes, Prestige, Colonial) but they're pretty gosh darn expensive!
Are there any stores that sell solid wood tables and chairs for less than 3K?
If it matters our taste tends to be fairly modern.
Thanks

We found a nice set at a place in Gatineau, well worth the drive, saved thousands on appliances as well!

Check it out!
Good luck!

We got a lot of our furniture from Sears. Like you, we didn't want to spend money on fake wood/laminate furniture nor did we want to pay thousands and thousands for furniture. They also have great sales. Go to their Home Store as they have more selection there. Their website is also a great point of reference. So far, we got our leather couches, dining table, bar stools, entertainment unit and bedroom furniture from them.

If you like contemporary furniture check Van Leeuwen in the Market. Their stuff is normally pricey (not like it used to be though) but they have pretty good prices during sales.

Over the years we have bought our couches and dinette set there during sales after checking all the stores such as Sears, The Bay, etc... at over 50% off.
I also like the fact that their furniture is somewhat unique.

There is a store in Carleton Place called "The New Oak Tree" http://thenewoaktree.com/. We have purchased a couple of peices from them & are very satisfied. Their prices are pretty reasonable too when you consider it is all solid wood. Everything they sell is made to order locally, so you will have to wait a few weeks for it, but the wait is worth it.

Not quite sure of the names, but there are a few boutique shops in Westboro that might have what you are looking for. I think one is across from the Starbucks and another at the other end of the street.

Default Furniture recommendation

We really liked a solid wood set at Broyhill Furtniture:

http://www.broyhillfurniture.com/ and search for Attic Heirlooms. We plan on buying this set in the future.

I have bought furniture in the past at Mobilia (Merival & Huntclub) (couch, love seat, coffee table) and Van Leeuwen (coffee table, end table).
I would buy from both again.
Deboers is worth a look see but they can be pricey.

I forgot about EQ3 (http://eq3.com), some of the furniture is listed as being solid wood, although I doubt all of it is. I have bought a bunch of furniture from them before and am very pleased with the quality. As well, this may be the modern deisgn that you are looking for.
