Furniture auctions are exactly what they sound like—events at which different kinds of furniture is offered for auction. Depending on the auction you attend, you may bid on very expensive, high-quality antique furniture, or on reasonably-priced furniture that would be just right for use in your home or office.

At some auctions, accessories and room décor pieces, such as paintings, wall hangings, and other things are also offered for bid. Do your homework in advance, when possible, and bid wisely at one of the auction sites listed below and you just might find yourself with a house full of "new" furniture (well, it will be new to you.)

Doyle New York, 175 East 87th Street

You can bid on different furniture items at different times when you attend a Doyle New York auction. One time you may be bidding on furniture and other belongings that were once the personal property of Al Hirshfeld, a famous New York City caricature artist; another time you may have a chance to own something that another famous New Yorker once called his own.

Items for bid can include furniture, decorations, books, artwork, and even memorabilia. You never know what you may find at a Doyle New York auction, so visit frequently.

Redstone (two locations)

This auction site has two handling facilities, one for pre-sales and one for post-sales. The pre-sale facility is located at 47-50 33rd Street; the post-sale facility is located at 32-23 48th Street. Both addresses are in Long Island City in the Queens borough.

Redstone is affiliated with Christie's, the famous worldwide auction house. When you attend an auction here, you know you will be bidding on high-quality furniture that you would be glad to own.

IFI Wholesale Auction, Polish Hall, 10 Hendrick Avenue, Glen Cove

Glen Cove is located on the North Shore of Long Island, so plan a trip to this lovely part of New York City for a day at a furniture auction. You'll find rugs, artwork, crystal, jewelry, and yes, furniture at the auctions held by this company.

The prices you bid are considered wholesale, which means you'll bid and pay a lot less than if you were dealing with retailers. You can save money and still purchase fine quality merchandise at an IFI Wholesale Auction. Furniture auctions can be a lot of fun and a great way to purchase things for your home. Plan on visiting one in New York City soon.
