Thomas wants to give people transparency in both furniture and business dealings. Within the United States and Canada, Aaron R. Thomas now offers Free Shipping & Handling.

In addition to creating amazing acrylic furniture, Aaron R. Thomas ( has created a stir in the entire furniture market by offering both up-front pricing and free shipping on every item they sell through their online store (

Known for their excellent customer service and high quality furniture, the company is shaking things up by clearly posting their prices and shipping anywhere in the United States or Canada for free. "When people are buying a table or chair from a showroom they are already paying for it to be there. Why should the situation be different when the consumer is educated enough to go straight to the source?" asks owner Aaron R. Thomas.

The furniture industry has long been a kind of secret society that doesn't blatantly display its prices and tends to favor interior designers and retailers over end users. Recent trends show that more consumers are taking research into their own hands and educating themselves about both design and price primarily via the internet. "We are who we are and we make the best furniture around. I don't want to play games with our customers. We need to be straightforward with our pricing. What you see is what you'll get shipped to your door, without hidden charges." explains Aaron.
