Sometimes you just have to stand in awe at the scale of America's vast supply chain as it feeds its hungry consumers. Bigger may not always be better, but humongous is pretty darn impressive no matter what it's describing — dinosaurs, Donald Trump's ego, breasts, or in this case, the biggest furniture store in Texas. Forget IKEA. It only feels huge because it's maze-like design never let's you leave. The Midwestern import NFM has everything imaginable to furnish your home, from electronics and appliances to furniture, rugs and outdoor kitchen gear. All of it is from affordable lines from makers like Ashley, or our favorite, Flexsteel. Higher-end furnishings are also displayed in a store the size of a small city that's open and airy, so you don't feel like a lab rat. Better still, the salespeople are knowledgeable, plentiful and friendly but don't attach themselves to shoppers like a commission-hungry remora. Also, their warehouse pickup area is a marvel of logistics.
