furniture with prices on par with the internet? We need to buy a bed, living room seating and a dining room set. The answer to this question is not

We'd like to buy a sturdy, quality king-size bed that will last for a while (at least 10-15 years), a microfiber couch that isn't a piece of crap, a chaise, and a dining room set that will also last. If we could walk into one or places, pick all this stuff out, have it delivered and assembled and maybe get a discount because we're buying a shitload of furniture at once, that'd be great. If not, we can deal, but this is definitely a "we both work a lot and need to furnish an empty apartment we want to move into ASAP with the basics" sort of thing and not a "we have the time and energy to go hunting for the absolutely perfect dinner table" sort of thing.
Trendiness of the furniture isn't really a big consideration as long as it looks nice and is made well. We're willing to spend Money on this assuming all the stuff we're getting will not have to be bought again for at least a decade.
Also any advice on the following welcome:
-How to evaluate furniture quality.
-Average prices for quality furniture so we can tell if we're a) getting gouged or b) buying a piece of crap.
-How much to tip furniture delivery/assembly people.
