Book Stores and Contemporary Furniture Stores

My husband and I will be visiting Austin for the first time this August. Are there independent book stores and contemporary furniture stores to include in our travel plans?

Book People is awesome - http://www.bookpeople.com/

and convenient to Whole Foods and Waterloo records.

There is a place in the 2nd St. district that comes to mind for modern furniture - http://www.boconcept.us/Default.aspx?ID=82889

Here is a link to the 2nd St. district, fun little area downtown - www.2ndstreetdistrict.com/merchants-map/

Enjoy!

Book People is a great indie book store and it only makes things better that it's across the street from Whole Foods and Waterloo records.

If you have time, don't miss Half-Price books. They have several locations and the largest is on north Lamar at 2222. Big, big store.http://www.hpb.com/005.html

A little north of downtown is http://www.eurway.com/ and it has a loyal following for contemporary and modern furniture.

Welcome to Austin!

Thanks AustinTexas21 for the correction!

Well, I am from El Palo and I was able to have really nice modern furniture from http://www.instylemodern.com/. Check them out because they do deliver across the U.S. so it won't really matter where you are. I bough from them some egg chairs and a tulip table, which, I tell you man, are really beautiful. I hope that helps and goodluck!
