Affordable furniture in Los Angeles? What should we even look for in terms of a (moderate) quality couch?

We're new to both Los Angeles, and also the wonderful world of purchasing new (!!!) furniture. Exciting! We're looking for a couch (1st priority) but also a small dining room table and a very, very simple set up for the bed.
Most recent AskMe thread is from 2009 on this subject - - can anyone give us some updated advice on where to go in Los Angeles or the Valley (we're on the east side but willing to travel)? We'd like to avoid Ikea, if possible. We love fancy design and all that stuff, but our budget is very modest. I'd say the highest we could go is about a grand for the couch, and we would need delivery.
I've seen a million furniture stores around, but am intimidated. If it "looks" nice (think: design within reach) we cant afford it and/or I wonder if it is a showy rip-off. If it "looks" affordable (think: random non-chain furniture store on Sunset), I'm worried about the quality. Any pointers on that?
Also, if they deliver your couch, can you pay them to take the old one?
