Bodie Island tends to cause a lot of confusion, for both the pronunciation of its name as well as its precise location. This small strip of the Outer Banks doesn't get a lot of attention, and most North Carolina visitors simply pass through the area on their way to or from the Hatteras and Ocracoke Island resort towns, or make a quick stop for an up-close-and-personal view of the Bodie Island Lighthouse.
Locally-owned Outer Banks Furniture, located at Milepost 14 off the Bypass, bills itself as having the largest showroom on the Outer Banks. With more than 20,000 square feet at the Outer Banks Mall store filled with furniture, lamps, rugs, wall art and accessories, that claim is not hard to believe. The store carries dozens of brand names, including American Drew, Bassett, Vanguard, New Energy, Serta, Kincaid and Hooker Furniture. And an additional 12,000 square-foot warehouse in Duck keeps a large inventory in stock. Design consultation is offered at no cost, and a cottage furnishings package is also available. Free delivery and setup is offered with all purchases from Corolla to Hatteras, Grandy to Roanoke Island. Shipping ,with setup included, is also available to any of the lower 48 states.
