College Furniture on Harvard Ave in Allston. A few of the pieces are nicer, but mostly it's what you'd expect. They have great area rugs.
Target at the Watertown Mall. I think their stuff is a little nicer than Ikea for comparable prices. You've got to assemble it, but that means its easy to fit in a car.
Cort's on Beacon Street in Brighton. They've got good upholstered furniture at very low prices. They don't deliver, but they will arrange prompt delivery that's also very cheap.
