Berkeley >Viking Trader
A good experience with Viking Trader. Although I buy new furniture rarely and with a certain sense of trepidation, my experience with Viking Trader was a very good one, for two primary reasons: excellent service, and reasonable prices for sound, attractive furniture. Specifically, I was in the market for a modest dining table and four complementary chairs. On the floor, both Ann and Haakan went out of their way to accommodate my objectives, which I readily admit were changeable and indecisive at first. The store willingly took back the first table I selected (too small) and delivered a second table from a different line that same afternoon. This time, however, I was bothered by what I saw as a flaw in the wood grain (which I grant, however, was strictly a matter of personal opinion). Back went the second table, and I was invited to examine two other table tops that first had to be unboxed in the warehouse behind the store. After doing this, I then turned around and selected a table made from an entirely different kind of wood, which was delivered to me just a few hours later – and which I continue to be extremely pleased with. Although this is not a large store, the selection of modern and Scandinavian-style furniture on display is handsome and comprehensive, with a fairly broad price range. All in all I found 1) the staff (including the two delivery men) to be friendly, knowledgable, and very helpful, and 2) insofar as I am able to judge, a stock of solid-quality furniture on display, and 3) fair prices, which were even more reasonable during the sale period when I bought my goods. In sum, I can say I am a very satisfied customer who would recommend Viking Trader without hesitation to anyone in the market for new furniture.

SuperViking. Viking Trader is by far my favorite furniture store in the Bay Area. They have a nice combination of "Mom & Pop-store" atmosphere, proffessional service, and good taste.
