                        --------------------------------

          SECTION 2.01.  Purchase and Sale of Receivables.  (a)  Subject to the
                         ---------------------------------
terms and conditions of this Agreement (including, without limitation,
Article III), each Seller hereby sells, transfers, assigns, and conveys, without
recourse (except as expressly provided herein), to the Company, all its present
and future right, title and interest in, to and under:

          (i) all Receivables originated by such Seller, including those
     existing at the close of business on 

     the Effective Date and all such Receivables thereafter arising from time to
     time until but not including the date an Early Termination occurs;

         (ii) the Related Property;

        (iii) all Collections; and

         (iv) all rights (including rescission, replevin or reclamation)
     relating to any Receivable originated by such Seller or arising therefrom.

          (b)  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including,
without limitation, Article III), on the Effective Date and on the date of
creation of each newly created Receivable (but only so long as no Early
Termination shall have occurred and be continuing), all of each Seller's right,
title and interest in and to (i) in the case of the Effective Date, all then
existing Receivables originated by such Seller and all Related Property,
Collections and all rights (including rescission, replevin or reclamation) in
respect of such Receivables originated by such Seller and (ii) in the case of
each such date of creation, all such newly created Receivables originated by
such Seller and all Related Property, Collections and all rights (including
rescission, replevin or reclamation) in respect of such Receivables shall be
considered to be part of the assets that have been sold, transferred, assigned,
set over and otherwise conveyed to the Company pursuant to paragraph (a) above
without any further action by such Seller or any other Person.  Anything herein
to the contrary notwithstanding, to the extent any Seller shall not have
received payment from the Company of the Purchase Price for any Receivable and
Related Property in accordance with the terms of Section 2.03, such Seller shall
give written notice to the Company and the Trustee on the Payment Date for such
Purchase to the effect that such Receivable and Related Property shall be deemed
to not have been so sold, transferred, assigned, set over or conveyed to the
Company.

          (c)  The parties to this Agreement intend that, for accounting and
commercial purposes, the transactions contemplated by Section 2.01 hereby shall
be, and shall be treated as, a purchase by the Company and a sale by the Sellers
of the Purchased Receivables and not a lending transaction.  All sales of
Receivables and Related Property by the Sellers hereunder shall be without
recourse to, or representation or warranty of any kind (express or implied) by,
the Sellers, except as otherwise specifically provided herein.  The foregoing
sale, assignment, transfer and conveyance does not constitute and is not
intended to result in a creation or assumption by the Company of any obligation
of the Sellers or any other Person in connection with the Receivables, the
Related Property or any agreement or instrument relating thereto, including any
obligation to any Obligor.  Although it is the intent of the parties to this
Agreement that the conveyance of the Sellers' right, title and interest in, to
and under the Receivables, the Related Property, Collections and all rights
(including rescission, replevin or reclamation) in respect of the Receivables
pursuant to this Agreement shall constitute purchases and sales and not loans,
in the event that any such conveyance is deemed to be a loan, it is the intent
of the parties to this Agreement that each Seller hereby grant to the Company a
perfected first priority security interest in all of such Seller's present and
future right, title and interest in, to and under the Receivables, the Related
Property, all Collections and all rights (including rescission, replevin or
reclamation) relating to any Receivable originated by such Seller or arising
therefrom and that this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under
applicable law in favor of the Company.

          (d)  In connection with the foregoing conveyances, each Seller agrees
to record and file, or cause to be recorded and filed, at its own expense,
financing statements (and continuation statements with respect to such financing
statements when applicable), (i) with respect to the Receivables originated by
such Seller now existing and hereafter acquired pursuant to this Agreement by
the Company 

from such Seller and (ii) with respect to any Related Property for which a
security interest may be perfected under the relevant UCC, legislation or
similar statute by such filing, in each case meeting the requirements of
applicable law in such manner and in such jurisdictions as are necessary to
perfect and maintain perfection of the conveyance of such Receivables and any
Related Property to the Company, and to deliver to the Company on or prior to
the Effective Date (i) where available, a file-stamped copy or certified
statement of such financing statement or other evidence of such filing and
(ii) otherwise, a photocopy, certified by a Responsible Officer to be a true and
correct copy, of each such financing statement or other filing made or to be
made on or prior to the Effective Date.

          (e)  In connection with the foregoing sales, transfers, assignments
and conveyances, each Seller agrees at its own expense, on or prior to the
Effective Date with respect to the Receivables and any other similar receivables
originated by such Seller that it will, as agent of the Company, (i) indicate or
cause to be indicated on the computer files and other physical records (but not
including individual invoices or individual collection files) relating to such
Receivables and any such other receivables (by means of a general legend that
will automatically appear at or near the beginning of any screen, list or print-
out of such Receivables) that, unless otherwise specifically identified on such
screen, list or print-out as a receivable not so sold, transferred, assigned and
conveyed, all Receivables (and any such other receivables) included in such
screen, list or print-out and all Related Property (and any other similar
related property) have been sold, transferred, assigned and conveyed to the
Company in accordance with this Agreement and (ii) deliver or transmit or cause
to be delivered or transmitted to the Company a computer tape, diskette or data
transmission containing at least the information specified in Schedule 2 as to
all such Receivables, as of a date no later than the Cut-Off Date.

Section 2.03(e)) shall be paid by the Company to the Sellers or, in the case of
amounts payable pursuant to clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) below, to the Sellers or

Date occurring after the initial purchase of Receivables hereunder as follows:

          (i) to the extent available for such purpose, in cash from the net
     proceeds of a transfer of such Purchased Receivables by the Company to

applied to the Purchase Price in an amount equal to such increase.

          (e)  The Company shall deduct from the Purchase Price otherwise pay-
able to the Sellers on any Payment Date, any Seller Dilution Adjustment

obligation under this Agreement, by implication or otherwise, to repurchase from
the Company any Purchased Receivables originated by such Seller or Related
Property or to rescind or otherwise retroactively effect any purchase of any

         --------
of the Company herein to receive a Seller Adjustment Payment with respect to any
Ineligible Receivable.

          SECTION 2.05.  Rebates, Adjustments, Returns, Reductions and
                         ---------------------------------------------
Modifications.  From time to time a Seller may make Dilution Adjustments to
- --------------
Receivables in accordance with this Section 2.05 and Section 6.02.

immediately succeeding the date of the grant of 

any Dilution Adjustment, the amount of any such Dilution Adjustment (a "Seller
Dilution Adjustment Payment").  The amount of any Dilution Adjustment shall be
set forth on the first Daily Report prepared after the date of the grant

          SECTION 2.06.  Payments in Respect of and Indemnification for
                         ----------------------------------------------

- -----------------------
subsections 4.02(a) or (b) is not true and correct as of the date specified
therein with respect to any Receivable sold to the Company or any Receivable
encompassed by the representation or warranty under subsection 4.02(c) is
determined not to be an Eligible Receivable as of its date of purchase,
(ii) there is a breach of any covenant under Section 6.01 with respect to any
Receivable or (iii) the Company's interest in any Receivable is not a first
priority perfected ownership or security interest at any time as a result of any
action taken by, or the failure to take action by, a Seller (each event referred
to in clause (i), (ii) and (iii) of this Section 2.06(a) shall be referred to
herein as an  "Ineligibility Event" and any Receivable as to which an 
Ineligibility Event applies shall be referred to herein as an "Ineligible
Receivable"), then the Seller that originated such Receivable agrees to pay to
the Company, upon the request of the Company or such Seller obtaining knowledge
thereof, an amount (the "Adjustment Amount") equal to the Principal Amount of
such Receivable (whether the Company paid the related Purchase Price in cash or
otherwise) less Collections received by the Company in respect of such
Receivable.  Such payment shall be made on or prior to the 30th day after the
day the Company requests such payment or such Seller obtains knowledge thereof
(except that if such day is not a Business Day, then such payment shall be made
on the Business Day immediately succeeding such day); provided that in the event
                                                      --------
that (x) a Purchase Termination Event has occurred and is continuing or (y) the
Company shall be required to make a payment in respect of such Receivable
pursuant to Section 2.05 of the Pooling Agreement and the Company has
insufficient funds to make such payment, 

such Seller shall make such payment immediately.  Any payment by such Seller
pursuant to this Section 2.06(a) is referred to as a "Seller Adjustment
Payment".  If, on or prior to such 30th day (or the Business Day immediately
succeeding such 30th day, as applicable), a Seller shall make a Seller
Adjustment Payment in respect of any such Ineligible Receivable, then the
Company shall have no further remedy against such Seller in respect of the
Ineligibility Event with respect to such Receivable.  Upon a Seller Adjustment
Payment, the Company shall automatically agree to pay to the appropriate Seller
all Collections received with respect to such Ineligible Receivable.

          (b)  Special Indemnification.  In addition to its obligations under
               ------------------------
Section 9.03 hereunder, each Seller agrees to pay, indemnify and hold harmless
the Company from any loss, liability, expense, damage or injury which may at any
time be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Company in any way
relating to or arising out of (i) any Eligible Receivable originated by such
Seller becoming subject to any defense, dispute, offset or counterclaim of any
kind (other than as expressly permitted by this Agreement or the Pooling
Agreement) or (ii) such Seller breaching any covenant contained in Section 5.02,
5.08, 5.09, 5.10, 6.01, 6.02, 6.03, 6.04, 6.05, 6.09 or 6.10 with respect to any
Receivable originated by it (each of the foregoing events or circumstances being
an "Indemnification Event"), and such Receivable (or a portion thereof) ceasing
to be an Eligible Receivable on the date on which such Indemnification Event
occurs.  The amount of such indemnification shall be equal to the Principal
Amount of such Receivable (whether the Company paid the related Purchase Price
in cash or otherwise) less Collections received by the Company in respect of
such Receivable.  Such payment shall be made on or prior to the 30th Business
Day after the day the Company requests such payment or such Seller obtains
knowledge thereof unless such Indemnification Event shall have been cured on or
before such 30th Business Day; provided, however, that in the event that (x) a
                               --------  -------
Purchase Termination Event has occurred and is continuing or 

(y) the Company shall be required to make a payment with respect to such
Receivable pursuant to Section 2.05 of the Pooling Agreement and the Company has
insufficient funds to make such a payment, such Seller shall make such payment
immediately.  If, on or prior to such 30th Business Day, such Seller shall make
such payment, then the Company shall have no further remedy against such Seller
in respect of such Indemnification Event.  Any payment by such Seller pursuant
to this Section 2.06(b) is referred to as a "Seller Indemnification Payment".

          SECTION 2.07.  Certain Charges.  Each of the Sellers and the Company
                         ----------------
agree that late charge revenue, reversals of discounts, other fees and charges
and other similar items, whenever created, accrued in respect of Purchased
Receivables shall be the property of the Company notwithstanding the occurrence
of an Early Termination and all Collections with respect thereto shall continue
to be allocated and treated as Collections in respect of Purchased Receivables.

          SECTION 2.08.  Certain Allocations.  Each Seller hereby agrees that,
                         --------------------
following the occurrence of an Early Termination, all Collections and other
proceeds received in respect of Receivables generated by the Sellers shall be
applied, first, to pay the outstanding Principal Amount of Purchased Receivables
         -----
(as of the date of such Early Termination) of the Obligor to whom such
Collections are attributable until such Purchased Receivables are paid in full
and, second, to the Sellers to pay Receivables of such Obligor not sold to the
     ------
Company; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Seller
         --------  -------

               ----------
description as of the Effective Date of each Lockbox Account currently

Seller is to be a Party, once entered into, shall be the legal, valid and
binding obligation of such Seller, enforceable against such Seller in accordance
with its terms.

          (n)  Chief Executive Office.  The offices at which each Seller keeps
               -----------------------
its records concerning the Receivables originated by it either (x) are located

office of such Seller is listed opposite its name on Schedule 4 and is the place
where such Seller is "located" for the purposes of Section 9-103(3)(d) of the
UCC as in effect in the State of New York.  As of the Effective Date, the state
and county where the chief executive office of such Seller is "located" for the
purposes of 9-103(3)(d) of the UCC as in effect in the State of New York has not
changed in the past four months, except for Furnishings International Inc. whose
chief executive office was located at 1314 Hanley Industrial Court, St. Louis,

Inc. will not have its chief executive office in Missouri after the Effective
Date.

          (o)  Bulk Sales Act.  No transaction contemplated hereby with respect
               ---------------
to such Seller requires compliance with, or will be subject to avoidance under,
any bulk sales act or similar law.

          (p)  Names.  The legal name of such Seller is as set forth in this
               ------
Agreement.  It has no trade names, fictitious names, assumed names or "doing
business as" names except as set forth on Schedule 5.

          (q)  Solvency.  No Insolvency Event with respect to such Seller has
               ---------
occurred and the sale of the Receivables by it to the Company has not been made
in contemplation of the occurrence thereof.  Both prior to and after giving
effect to the transactions occurring on the Effective Date and after giving
effect to each subsequent transaction contemplated hereunder, (i) the fair value
of the assets of such Seller at a fair valuation will exceed the debts and
liabilities, subordinated, contingent or otherwise, of such Seller; (ii) the
present fair salable value of the property of such Seller will be greater than
the amount that will be required to pay the probable liability of such Seller on
its debts and other liabilities, subordinated, contingent or otherwise, as such
debts and other liabilities become absolute and matured; (iii) such Seller will
be able to pay its debts and liabilities, subordinated, contingent or otherwise,
as such debts and liabilities become absolute and matured; and (iv) such Seller
will not have unreasonably small capital with which to conduct the business in
which it is engaged as such business is now conducted and is proposed to be
conducted.  For all purposes of clauses (i) through (iv) above, the amount of
contingent liabilities at any time shall be computed as the amount that, in the
light of all the facts and circumstances existing at such time, represents the
amount that can reasonably be expected to become an actual or matured liability.
Such Seller does not intend to, nor does it believe that it will, incur debts
beyond its ability to pay such debts as they mature, taking into account the
timing of and amounts of cash to be received by it and the timing of the amounts
of cash to be payable on or in respect of its Indebtedness.

          (r)  No Purchase Termination Event.  As of the Effective Date, no
               ------------------------------
Purchase Termination Event or Potential Purchase Termination Event with respect
to such Seller has occurred and is continuing.

          (s)  No Fraudulent Transfer.  Such Seller is not entering into this
               -----------------------
Agreement with the intent (whether actual or constructive) to hinder, delay, or
defraud its present or 

future creditors and is receiving reasonably equivalent value and fair
consideration for the Receivables originated by it being transferred hereunder.

          (t)  Liabilities.  Other than the liabilities, commitments or
               ------------
obligations (whether absolute, accrued, contingent or otherwise) arising under
or in respect of the Transaction Documents, the Credit Agreement, the
Subordinated Notes or any documents executed in connection with any of the
foregoing, such Seller does not have any liabilities, commitments or obligations
(whether absolute, accrued, contingent or otherwise), whether due or to become
due which would be reasonably likely to have a Seller Material Adverse Effect.

          (u)  Collection Procedures.  Such Seller has in place procedures
               ----------------------
pursuant to the Transaction Documents which are either necessary or advisable to
ensure the timely collection of Receivables originated by it.

          (v)  Ownership.  Except in the case of Furnishings International Inc.,
               ----------
all of its issued and outstanding capital stock is wholly owned, directly or
indirectly, legally and beneficially, by Furnishings International Inc.

- -------------------
on each Payment Date that with respect to the Receivables originated by it being
paid for as of such date:

               ------------------------
     tape, diskette or data transmission delivered or transmitted pursuant to
     Section 2.01(e) sets forth in all material respects an accurate and
     complete listing of all Receivables sold to the Company as of the Cut-Off
     Date and the information contained therein in accordance with Schedule 2
     with respect to each such Receivable is true and correct as of the Cut-Off
     Date.  As of the Cut-Off Date, the aggregate 

     amount of Receivables owned by the Sellers is accurately set forth on such
     computer tape, diskette or data transmission.

          (b)  No Liens.  Each Receivable existing on the Initial Closing Date
               ---------
     or, in the case of Receivables sold to the Company after the Initial

     the Company, has been conveyed to the Company free and clear of any Liens,
     except for Permitted Liens specified in clause (i) of the definition
     thereof.

          (c)  Eligible Receivable.  On the Initial Closing Date, each
               --------------------
     Receivable that is represented to be an Eligible Receivable sold to the
     Company on such date is an Eligible Receivable on the Initial Closing Date
     and, in the case of Receivables sold to the Company after the Initial
     Closing Date, each such Receivable that is represented to be an Eligible
     Receivable sold to the Company on such later date is an Eligible Receivable
     on such later date.

          (d)  Filings.  On or prior to the Effective Date, all filings and
               --------
     other acts necessary (including but not limited to all filings and other
     acts necessary or advisable under the UCC) shall have been made or
     performed in order to grant the Company on the Effective Date a first
     priority perfected ownership or security interest in respect of all
     Receivables.

     against any substantial part of the property of the Seller, and (B) any
     event 

     referred to in clause (ii)(A) above continues for 60 days unless dismissed,
     bonded or disclosed; (iii) the Seller shall at its request have a decree or
     an order for relief entered with respect to it or commence a voluntary case
     under any Applicable Insolvency Law now or hereafter in effect, or shall
     consent to the entry of a decree or an order for relief in an involuntary
     case, or to the conversion of an involuntary case to a voluntary case,
     under any such Applicable Insolvency Law, consent to the appointment of or
     taking possession by a receiver, trustee or other custodian for all or a
     substantial part of its property; (iv) the making by the Seller of any

     ERISA for a failure to make a required installment or other payment to a

     applies; or

          (h) any Lien in an amount equal to or greater than $1,000,000 has been
     asserted against or imposed on, any 

     real or personal property of a Seller pursuant to the Comprehensive
     Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C.
     Sec. 9607(l), or any equivalent or comparable state law, relating to or

event shall not trigger an Early Termination hereunder and (z) in the case of
any other Purchase Termination Event, so long as such Purchase Termination Event
shall be continuing, the Company may terminate its obligation to purchase
Receivables from such Seller by written notice to such Seller (any termination
pursuant to clause (x), (y) or (z) of this Article VII is herein called an
"Early Termination"); provided, however, that in the event of an involuntary
                      --------  -------
petition or proceeding as described in paragraphs (d)(i) and (d)(ii) above, the
Company shall not purchase Receivables from such Seller unless such involuntary
petition or proceeding is dismissed, bonded or discharged within 60 days 

of the filing of such petition or the commencement of such proceeding.

          SECTION 7.02.  Remedies.  (a)  If a Purchase Termination Event has
                         ---------
occurred and is continuing, the Company (and its assignees) shall have all of
the rights and remedies provided to a secured creditor or a purchaser of
accounts under the UCC by applicable law in respect thereto.

          (b)  Such Seller agrees that, upon the occurrence and during the
continuation of a Purchase Termination Event under Section 7.01(d) or (e)(i):

          (i) the Company (and its assignees) shall have the right at any time
     to notify, or require that such Seller at such Seller's expense notify, the
     respective Obligors of the Company's ownership of the Purchased Receivables
     and Related Property and may direct that payment of all amounts due or to
     become due under the Purchased Receivables be made directly to the Company
     or its designee;

          
         (ii) the Company (and its assignees) shall have the right to (A) sue
     for collection on any Purchased Receivables or (B) sell any Purchased
     Receivables to any Person for a price that is acceptable to the Company. 
     If required by the terms of Section 9-504 or 9-505 of the UCC (or analogous
     provisions of any other similar law applicable to the Receivables), the
     Company (and its assignees) may offer to sell any Purchased Receivable to
     any Person, together, at its option, with all other Receivables created by
     the same Obligor.  Any Purchased Receivable sold hereunder (other than
     pursuant to the Pooling Agreement) shall cease to be a Receivable for all
     purposes under this Agreement as of the effective date of such sale;

          
        (iii) such Seller shall, upon the Company's written request and at such
     Seller's expense, (A) assemble all of such Seller's documents, instruments
     and other 

     records (including credit files and computer tapes or disks) that
     (1) evidence or will evidence or record Receivables sold by such Seller and
     (2) are otherwise necessary or desirable to effect Collections of such
     Purchased Receivables (collectively, the "Documents") and (B) deliver the
     Documents to the Company or its designee at a place designated by the
     Company.  In recognition of such Seller's need to have access to any
     Documents which may be transferred to the Company hereunder, whether as a
     result of its continuing business relationship with any Obligor for
     Receivables purchased hereunder or as a result of its responsibilities as a
     Servicer, the Company hereby grants to such Seller an irrevocable license
     to access the Documents transferred by such Seller to the Company and to
     access any such transferred computer software in connection with any
     activity arising in the ordinary course of such Seller's business or in
     performance of such Seller's duties as a Servicer; provided that such
                                                        --------
     Seller shall not disrupt or otherwise interfere with the Company's use of
     and access to the Documents and its computer software during such license
     period;

          
         (iv) such Seller hereby grants to the Company an irrevocable power of
     attorney (coupled with an interest) to take any and all steps in such
     Seller's name necessary or desirable, in the reasonable opinion of the
     Company, to collect all amounts due under the Purchased Receivables,
     including, without limitation, endorsing such Seller's name on checks and
     other instruments representing Collections, enforcing the Purchased
     Receivables and exercising all rights and remedies in respect thereof; and

          (v) upon written request of the Company, such Seller will (A) deliver
     to the Company all licenses, rights, computer programs, related material,
     computer tapes, disks, cassettes and data necessary for the immediate
     collection of the Purchased Receivables by the Company, with or without the
     participation of such 

     Seller (excluding software licenses which by their terms are not permitted
     to be so delivered; provided that such Seller shall use reasonable efforts
                         --------
     to obtain the consent of the relevant licensor to such delivery) and
     (B) make such arrangements with respect to the collection of the Purchased
     Receivables as may be reasonably required by the Company.

                                  ARTICLE VIII

                                   Seller Note
                                   -----------

          SECTION 8.01.  Seller Note.  On the Effective Date, the Company shall
                         ------------
issue to the Sellers a subordinated note substantially in the form of Exhibit A
(as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the "Seller
Note").  The Company may incur Indebtedness evidenced by the Seller Note on any
date only (i) if such date is a Payment Date; (ii) in payment to the Sellers of
all or a portion of the Purchase Price (net of such deductions as provided in
Section 2.03(e)) for Receivables and Related Property required to be paid for by
the Company to the Sellers on such Payment Date in accordance with Section 2.02;
(iii) to the extent that cash was not available to pay such Purchase Price (net
of such deductions) in accordance with subsections 2.03(b)(i), 2.03(b)(ii),
2.03(c)(i), 2.03(c)(ii) and 2.03(c)(iii) (as applicable); and (iv) subject, in
any event, to Section 8.03.  Interest on the principal amount of the Seller Note
(as such principal amount may have been increased pursuant to the following
proviso) shall accrue at One-Month LIBOR plus 2.50% per annum (or, if less, the
"Applicable Percentage" with respect to "Eurodollar Loans" (as each such term is
defined in the Credit Agreement)) from and including the Effective Date and
shall be paid on each Distribution Date with respect to amounts accrued and not
paid as of the last day of the preceding Settlement Period and the maturity date
thereof; provided, however, that, to the maximum extent permitted by law,
         --------  -------
accrued interest on the 

Seller Note which is not so paid shall be added, at the request of the Sellers,
to the principal amount of the Seller Note.  The principal amount of the Seller
Note (as such principal amount may have been increased pursuant to the proviso
to the preceding sentence) shall be payable on the maturity date of the Seller
Note (unless sooner prepaid pursuant to the terms thereof and of the other
Transaction Documents).  Each Seller's interest in, and all payments in respect
of, the Seller Note shall be allocated among the Sellers by the Master Servicer
pro-rata in accordance with the amount of Receivables sold by each such Seller
- --- ----
to the Company that are paid for by the incurrence of debt under the Seller
Note.  Default in the payment of principal or interest under the Seller Note
shall not constitute a default or event of default or a Purchase Termination
Event hereunder, a Servicer Default under the Servicing Agreement or an Early
Amortization Event under the Pooling Agreement or any Supplement thereto.

          SECTION 8.02.  Restrictions on Transfer of Seller Note.  Neither the
                         ----------------------------------------
Seller Note, nor any right of the Sellers to receive payments thereunder, shall
be assigned, transferred, exchanged, pledged, hypothecated, participated or
otherwise conveyed.

          SECTION 8.03.  Discretion; Aggregate Amount.  Anything herein to the
                         -----------------------------
contrary notwithstanding, no Seller shall be obligated to accept payment of any
Purchase Price in the form of Indebtedness of the Company under the Seller Note
if, after giving effect to such Indebtedness to be incurred on such date, the
aggregate principal amount of Indebtedness evidenced by the Seller Note,
incurred on or before such Payment Date and outstanding on such Payment Date
(after giving effect to all repayments thereof on or before such Payment Date)
would be more than 50% of the outstanding balance of the Receivables on such
Payment Date, unless such Seller shall be satisfied (and, for purposes hereof,
in the absence of notice to the contrary by such Seller to the Company and the
Trustee, such Seller shall be deemed satisfied) that, in the ordinary course of
its 

business, the Company will pay the principal of, and interest on, such
Indebtedness in accordance with the terms thereof.  The principal amount of
Indebtedness evidenced by the Seller Note incurred on any Payment Date shall
not, in any event, be greater than the excess, if any, of (x) the Purchase Price
for Receivables and Related Property required to be paid for by the Company on
such Payment Date pursuant to Section 2.03 over (y) the portion of such Purchase
Price paid in cash pursuant to subsections 2.03(b)(i), 2.03(b)(ii), 2.03(c)(i),
2.03(c)(ii) or 2.03(c)(iii).

                                   ARTICLE IX

                                  Miscellaneous
                                  -------------

          SECTION 9.01.  Further Assurances.  (a)  Each Seller agrees, from time

to time, to do and perform any and all acts and to execute any and all further
instruments reasonably required or requested by the Company more fully to effect
the purposes of this Agreement and the sales of the Receivables hereunder,
including, without limitation, the execution of any financing statements or
continuation statements (and other similar instruments) relating to the
Receivables for filing under the provisions of the UCC (or any other similar
law) of any applicable jurisdiction.

          (b)  From time to time at the request of a Seller, the Company shall
deliver to such Seller such documents, assignments, releases and instruments of
termination as such Seller may reasonably request to evidence the reconveyance
by the Company to such Seller of a Receivable pursuant to the terms of
Section 2.6; provided that the Company shall have been paid all amounts due
             --------
thereunder; and the Company and the applicable Servicer shall take such action
as such Seller may reasonably request, at the expense of the Seller, to assure
that any such Receivable, the Related Property with respect thereto and the
proceeds thereof do not remain commingled with Collections hereunder.

          SECTION 9.02.  Payments.  Each cash payment to be made by any of the
                         ---------
Company or a Seller hereunder shall be made on the required payment date and in
immediately available funds at the office of the payee set forth below its
signature hereto or to such other office as may be specified by either party in
a notice to the other party hereto.

          SECTION 9.03.  Costs and Expenses.  Each Seller agrees (a) to pay or
                         -------------------
reimburse the Company for all its out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred in
connection with the preparation and execution of, and any amendment, supplement
or modification to, this Agreement, the other Sale Documents and any other
documents prepared in connection herewith and therewith, the consummation and
administration of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby, including,
without limitation, all reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel, (b) to pay
or reimburse the Company for all its costs and expenses incurred in connection
with the enforcement or preservation of any rights under this Agreement and any
of the other Transaction Documents, including, without limitation, the
reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel to the Company, (c) to pay,
indemnify, and hold the Company harmless from, any and all recording and filing
fees and any and all liabilities with respect to, or resulting from any delay
caused by such Seller in paying, stamp, excise and other similar taxes, if any,
which may be payable or determined to be payable in connection with the
execution and delivery of, or consummation or administration of any of the
transactions contemplated by, or any amendment, supplement or modification of,
or any waiver or consent under or in respect of, this Agreement and any such
other documents, and (d) to pay, indemnify, and hold the Company harmless from
and against any and all other liabilities, obligations, losses, damages,
penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any
kind or nature whatsoever (i) which may at any time be imposed on, incurred by
or asserted against the Company in any way relating to or arising out of this
Agreement or the other Sale Documents or 

the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby or in connection herewith or
any action taken or omitted by the Company under or in connection with any of
the foregoing (all such other liabilities, obligations, losses, damages,
penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses and disbursements being
herein called "Indemnified Liabilities") or (ii) which would not have been
imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Company but for its having
acquired the Receivables hereunder; provided, however, that such indemnity shall
                                    --------  -------
not be available to the extent that such Indemnified Liabilities result from the
gross negligence or wilful misconduct of the Company; and provided, further,
                                                          --------  -------
that such Seller shall have no obligation under this Section 9.03 to the Company
with respect to Indemnified Liabilities arising from (i) any action taken, or
omitted to be taken, by a Servicer that is not such Seller itself or an
Affiliate of such Seller, (ii) any action taken by the Trustee or the Company at
the direction of the Trustee in collecting from an Obligor or (iii) a default by
an Obligor with respect to any Purchased Receivable (other than arising out of
(x) any discharge, claim, offset or defense (other than discharge in bankruptcy
of the Obligor) of the Obligor to the payment of any Purchased Receivable
(including, without limitation, a defense based on such Purchased Receivable not
being a legal, valid and binding obligation of such Obligor enforceable against
it in accordance with its terms) or any other claim resulting from the sale of
the merchandise or services related to any such Purchased Receivable or the
furnishing or failure to furnish such merchandise or services, (y) a failure by
such Seller to perform its duties or obligations under this Agreement or (z) the
sale of any Purchased Receivable that is designated on the applicable Daily
Report to be an Eligible Receivable and is determined to have been at the date
of such sale an Ineligible Receivable or any Purchased Receivable which
thereafter becomes subject to a Dilution Adjustment).  The agreements in this
Section 9.03 shall survive the collection of all Receivables, the termination of
this Agreement and the payment of all amounts payable hereunder.

          SECTION 9.04.  Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement shall be
                         -----------------------
binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Sellers and the Company and their
respective successors (whether by merger, consolidation or otherwise) and
assigns.  Each Seller agrees that it will not assign or transfer all or any
portion of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent
of the Company.  Each Seller acknowledges that the Company shall assign all of
its rights hereunder to the Trustee.  Each Seller consents to such assignment
and agrees that the Trustee, to the extent provided in the Pooling Agreement,
shall be entitled to enforce the terms of this Agreement and the rights
(including, without limitation, the right to grant or withhold any consent or
waiver) of the Company directly against such Seller, whether or not a Purchase
Termination Event or a Potential Purchase Termination Event has occurred.  Each
Seller further agrees that, in respect of its obligations hereunder, it will act
at the direction of and in accordance with all requests and instructions from
the Trustee until all amounts due to the Investor Certificateholders are paid in
full.  The Trustee, on behalf of the Investor Certificateholders, shall have the
rights of a third-party beneficiary under this Agreement.

          SECTION 9.05.   Governing Law.  THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY,
                          --------------

          SECTION 9.06.  No Waiver; Cumulative Remedies.  No failure to exercise
                         -------------------------------
and no delay in exercising, on the part of the Company, any right, remedy, power
or privilege hereunder, shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single
or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder preclude
any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right,
remedy, power or privilege.  The rights, remedies, powers and privileges herein
provided are cumulative and not exhaustive of any rights, remedies, powers and
privileges provided by law.

          SECTION 9.07.  Amendments and Waivers.  Neither this Agreement nor any

not be effective until the Rating Agency Condition has been satisfied.

          SECTION 9.08.  Severability.  Any provision of this Agreement which is
                         -------------
prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction,
be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without
invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or
unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforce-
able such provision in any other jurisdiction.

          SECTION 9.14.  Termination of Seller.  (a)  Any Seller (other than
                         ----------------------
Furnishings International Inc.) shall be terminated as a Seller hereunder by the
Company on the date such Seller ceases to be a wholly owned, direct or indirect,
Subsidiary of Furnishings International Inc.;  provided (i) that the aggregate
                                               --------
outstanding Principal Amount of Purchased Receivables sold by all Sellers which
so cease to be wholly owned Subsidiaries at such time (together with the
aggregate outstanding Principal Amount of Purchased Receivables sold by all
Sellers which have been terminated pursuant to this Section 9.14 within the
preceding 90 days) shall not exceed 10% of the aggregate outstanding Principal
Amount of all Purchased Receivables and (ii) that no Purchase Termination Event
or Potential Purchase Termination Event has occurred and is continuing, or would
result as a result thereof.  From and after the date any such Seller ceases to
be a wholly owned, direct or indirect, Subsidiary of Furnishings International
Inc., the Company shall cease buying Receivables and Related Property from such
Seller.  Each such Seller shall be released as a Seller party hereto for all
purposes and shall cease to be a party hereto on the 90th day after the date on
which there are no amounts outstanding with respect to Purchased Receivables
previously sold by such Seller to the Company, whether such amounts have been
collected or written off in accordance with the Policies of such Seller.  Prior
to such date, such Seller shall be obligated to perform its servicing and other
obligations hereunder and under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party
with respect to Purchased Receivables previously sold by such Seller to the
Company, including, without limitation, its obligation to direct the deposit of
Collections into the appropriate Lockbox.

          (b)  From time to time the Sellers, or the Master Servicer on behalf
of the Sellers, may request in writing that the Company designate one or more
Sellers as Sellers that shall cease to be parties to this Agreement; provided 
                                                                     --------

that no Purchase Termination Event or Potential Purchase Termination Event has
occurred and is continuing, or would result as a result thereof.  Any such
request shall specify the minimum aggregate Principal Amount of outstanding
Purchased Receivables sold by the Sellers to be so designated and terminated by
the Company.  Promptly after receipt of any such designation by the Company, the
Sellers shall either (i) elect not to terminate such designated Sellers or
(ii) select a date, which date shall not be later than 30 days after the date of
receipt of such designation, as the "Sale Termination Date" for such designated
Sellers.  From and after such date, the Company shall cease buying Receivables
and Related Property from such Sellers.  Each such Seller shall be released as a
Seller hereunder and a party hereto for all purposes and shall cease to be a
party hereto on the 90th day after the date on which there are no amounts
outstanding with respect to Purchased Receivables previously sold by such Seller
to the Company, whether such amounts have been collected or written off in
accordance with the Policies of such Seller.  Prior to such date, such Seller
shall be obligated to perform its servicing and other obligations hereunder and
under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party with respect to Purchased
Receivables previously sold by such Seller to the Company, including, without
limitation, its obligation to direct the deposit of Collections into the
appropriate Lockbox.

          (c)  A terminated Seller shall have no obligation to repurchase any
Receivables previously sold by it to the Company, but will have continuing
obligations with respect to such Receivables (including making any Seller
Dilution Adjustment Payments and Seller Adjustment Payments) to the extent such
obligations arise hereunder.

          SECTION 9.15.  No Bankruptcy Petition.  Each Seller, by entering into
                         -----------------------
this Agreement, and any present or future holder of the Seller Note, by its
acceptance thereof, covenants and agrees that, prior to the date which is one
year and one day after the date of termination of this Agreement pursuant to
Section 9.16, it will not institute 

against, or join any other Person in instituting against, the Company any
bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceedings,
or other proceedings under any Applicable Insolvency Laws.

          SECTION 9.16.  Termination.  This Agreement will terminate at such
                         ------------
time as (a) the commitment of the Company to purchase Receivables from all the
Sellers hereunder shall have terminated and (b) all Receivables purchased here-
under have been collected, and the proceeds thereof turned over to the Company
and all other amounts owing to the Company hereunder shall have been paid in
full or, if Receivables sold hereunder have not been collected, such Receivables
have become Defaulted Receivables and the Company shall have completed its
collection efforts in respect thereto; provided, however, that the indemnities
                                       --------  -------
of the Sellers to the Company set forth in this Agreement shall survive such
termination and provided, further that, to the extent any amounts remain due and
                --------  -------
owing to the Company hereunder, the Company shall remain entitled to receive any
collections on Receivables sold hereunder which have become Defaulted
Receivables after it shall have completed its collection efforts in respect
thereof.

          SECTION 9.17.  Construction of Agreement.  (a)  Each Seller hereby
                         --------------------------
grants to the Company a security interest in all of such Seller's right, title
and interest in, to and under the Receivables originated by it and Related
Property now existing and hereafter created, all monies due or to become due and
all amounts received with respect thereto and all "proceeds" thereof (including
Recoveries), to secure all of such Seller's obligations hereunder.

          (b)  This Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under
applicable law.

          IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Agreement to
be executed by their respective officers thereunto duly authorized, all as of
the day and year first above written.

          LFI RECEIVABLES CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation (the "Company"),
hereby promises to pay to the order of the Sellers listed on Schedule 1 to the
Receivables Sale Agreement described below the principal amount of this Seller
Note, determined as described below, together with interest thereon at a rate
per annum equal to One-Month LIBOR plus 2.50% (or, if less, the "Applicable

the Credit Agreement)) in lawful money of the United States of America.
Capitalized terms used herein but not defined herein shall have the meanings
assigned to such terms in the Receivables Sale Agreement dated as of August 5,
1996, among the Company, the Sellers named therein and the Servicers named
therein (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time in
accordance with its terms, the "Receivables Sale Agreement") and in the Pooling
Agreement, dated as of August 5, 1996, among the Company, LFI Servicing
Corporation, as Master Servicer, and The Chase Manhattan Bank, a New York
banking corporation, as Trustee (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified
from time to time in accordance with its terms, the "Pooling Agreement").  This
Seller Note is the Seller Note referred to in the Receivables Sale Agreement and
is subject to the terms and conditions thereof.

          1.  Principal Amount.  The aggregate principal amount of this Seller
              -----------------
Note at any time shall be calculated in accordance with Section 8.01 of the

          2.  Payments of Principal and Interest.  (a)  Principal on this Seller
              -----------------------------------

on the Trust Termination Date (as defined in the Pooling Agreement).

          (b)  Payments of interest on this Seller Note shall be paid on each

preceding Distribution Date (or, in the case of the first Distribution Date, as
of the date on which this Seller Note is issued)) and on the Trust Termination
Date by depositing such payment in such account of the Sellers as the Sellers
may designate in writing; provided, however, that accrued interest on this
                          --------  -------
Seller Note which is not so paid may (to the maximum extent permitted by law) be
added to the principal amount of this Seller Note as indicated on the schedule
annexed to and constituting a part of this Seller Note.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, no payments of interest or principal may be made under this Seller
Note at the times and to the extent prohibited under the Subordination
Provisions and Certain Termination Events described in Sections 3 and 6 below.

          3.  Subordination Provisions.  The Company covenants and agrees, and
              -------------------------
the Sellers, by their acceptance of this Seller Note, likewise covenant and
agree, that the payment of all obligations of the Company to the Sellers under
this Seller Note from or with the proceeds (such proceeds being the "Proceeds")

defined in the Pooling Agreement) or the LHL Demand Note (as defined in the
Pooling Agreement) (and any extensions, renewals, financing, refundings and
replacements of all or any part of such obligations) (the "Seller Subordinated
Debt") are hereby expressly subordinated in right of payment to the payment and
performance of the obligations of the Company to the Trustee for the benefit of
the Certificateholders (as

defined in the Pooling Agreement) howsoever created, arising or evidenced,
whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, now or hereafter existing,
or due or to become due (the "Senior Obligations") to the extent and in the
manner set forth in this paragraph including each of the following subparts:

          (a)  Insolvency Events; Priority of Senior Obligations; Payments Made
               ----------------------------------------------------------------
     Directly to the Trustee.  In the event of any bankruptcy, dissolution,
     ------------------------
     winding up, liquidation, readjustment, reorganization or other similar
     event relating to the Company, whether voluntary or involuntary, partial or
     complete, and whether in bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership or other
     similar proceedings, or upon an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or
     any other marshalling of the assets and liabilities of the Company (each an
     "Insolvency Event") or any sale of all or substantially all the assets of
     the Company (except pursuant to the Pooling Agreement and any Supplement
     thereto),

               (i) the Senior Obligations shall first be paid and performed in
          full and in cash before the Sellers shall be entitled to receive and
          to retain any payment or distribution from or with the Proceeds in
          respect of the Seller Subordinated Debt, whether of principal,
          interest or otherwise; and

              (ii) any payment or distribution from or with the Proceeds of any
          kind (including cash or property arising from Proceeds which may be
          payable or deliverable by reason of the payment of any other
          indebtedness of the Company being subordinated to the payment of the
          Seller Subordinated Debt) in respect of the Seller Subordinated Debt
          that otherwise would be payable or deliverable with respect to the
          Seller Subordinated Debt directly or indirectly, by set-off or in any
          other manner to the Sellers, shall

          be paid or delivered by the Person making such payment or delivery
          (whether a trustee in bankruptcy, a receiver, custodian, liquidating
          trustee or otherwise) directly to the Trustee on behalf of the
          Certificateholders for application to (in the case of cash) or as
          collateral for (in the case of noncash property or securities) the
          payment of the Senior Obligations until the Senior Obligations shall
          have been paid in full in cash.

          (b)  Payments Received by Sellers.  In the event that any Seller
               -----------------------------
     receives any payment or other distribution of any kind or character arising
     from Proceeds from the Company or from any other source whatsoever in
     respect of the Seller Subordinated Debt after the commencement of an
     Insolvency Event, such payment or other distribution shall be deemed to be
     property of the Certificateholders and shall be received and held by such
     Seller in trust for the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders and
     shall be turned over by such Seller to the Trustee for the benefit of the
     Certificateholders forthwith, until all Senior Obligations have been paid
     and performed in full and in cash.

          (c)  Application of Payments.  All payments and distributions arising
               ------------------------
     from Proceeds received by the Trustee in respect of the Seller Subordinated
     Debt, to the extent received in or converted into cash, may be applied by
     the Trustee for the benefit of the Certificateholders (i) first to the
     payment of any and all reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorneys'
     fees and legal expenses) paid or incurred by the Trustee or any
     Certificateholder in enforcing these Subordination Provisions, or in
     endeavoring to collect or realize upon the Seller Subordinated Debt, and
     (ii) any balance remaining therefrom shall be applied by the Trustee toward
     the payment of the Senior Obligations in a manner determined by the Trustee
     to be in accordance with the Pooling Agreement.

          (d)  Sellers' Rights of Subrogation.  Each Seller agrees that no
               -------------------------------
     payment or distribution to Certificateholders pursuant to these
     Subordination Provisions shall entitle any Seller to exercise any right of
     subrogation in respect thereof until the Senior Obligations shall have been
     paid in full in cash.  Each Seller agrees that these Subordination
     Provisions herein shall not be affected by any action, or failure to act,
     by any holder of Senior Obligations which results, or may result, in
     affecting, impairing or extinguishing any right of reimbursement or
     subrogation or other right or remedy of any Seller.

          (e)  Company's Obligations Absolute.  The provisions of this paragraph
               -------------------------------
     are intended solely for the purpose of defining the relative rights with
     respect to Proceeds of the Sellers, on the one hand, and the
     Certificateholders, on the other hand.  Nothing contained in these
     provisions or elsewhere in this Seller Note is intended to or shall impair,
     as between the Company, its creditors (other than the Certificateholders)
     and the Sellers, the Company's obligation, which is unconditional and
     absolute, to pay the Seller Subordinated Debt as and when the same shall
     become due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof and of the
     Receivables Sale Agreement or to affect the relative rights of the Sellers
     and creditors of the Company (other than the Certificateholders); provided
                                                                       --------
     that any payments made by the Company pursuant to this subsection shall be
     made solely from funds available to the Company which are not otherwise
     needed to be applied to the payment of any amounts pursuant to any Pooling
     and Servicing Agreements, shall be non-recourse other than with respect to
     proceeds in excess of the proceeds to make such payment, and shall not
     constitute a claim against the Company to the extent that insufficient
     proceeds exist to make such payment.

          (f)  Avoided Payments.  If, at any time, any payment (in whole or in
               -----------------
     part) made with respect to any

     Senior Obligations is rescinded or must be restored or returned by a
     Certificateholder or the Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders, the
     provisions of this paragraph shall continue to be effective or shall be
     reinstated, as the case may be, as though such payment had not been made.

          (g)  Subordination Not Affected by Certain Actions of
               ------------------------------------------------
     Certificateholders or the Trustee.  As between the Sellers, on the one
     ----------------------------------
     hand, and the Certificateholders and the Trustee, on the other hand, each
     of the Certificateholders or the Trustee may, from time to time, at its
     sole discretion, without notice to the Sellers, and without waiving any of
     its rights under these Subordination Provisions, take any or all of the
     following actions: (i) retain or obtain an interest in any property to
     secure any of the Senior Obligations; (ii) extend or renew for one or more
     periods (whether or not longer than the original period), alter, increase
     or exchange any of the Senior Obligations, or release or compromise any
     obligation of any nature with respect to any of the Senior Obligations;
     (iii) amend, supplement, amend and restate, or otherwise modify any
     Transaction Document; and (iv) release its security interest in, or
     surrender, release or permit any substitution or exchange for all or any
     part of any rights or property securing any of the Senior Obligations.

          (h)  Waiver of Notice.  By its acceptance hereof, each Seller hereby
               -----------------
     waives: (i) notice of acceptance of the provisions of this paragraph by any
     of the Certificateholders or the Trustee; (ii) notice of the existence,
     creation, non-payment or non-performance of all or any of the Senior
     Obligations; and (iii) all diligence in enforcement, collection or
     protection of, or realization upon, the Senior Obligations or any security
     therefor.

          4.  Restrictions on Assignment.  Neither this Seller Note, nor any
              ---------------------------
right of the Sellers to receive payments hereunder, shall be assigned,
transferred, exchanged, pledged, hypothecated, participated or otherwise
conveyed.

          5.  No Bankruptcy Petition.  Each Seller covenants and agrees that,
              -----------------------
prior to the date which is one year and one day after the date of termination of
the Receivables Sale Agreement pursuant to Section 9.16 thereof, it will not
institute against, or join any other Person in instituting against, the Company
any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation
proceedings, or other proceedings under any federal or state bankruptcy or
similar law.

          6.  Certain Termination Events.  During the continuance of any Early
              ---------------------------
Amortization Event:

          (a) the Company shall cease making any payments to the Sellers under
     this Seller Note;

          (b) the Trustee (on behalf of the Certificateholders) may demand, sue
     for, collect and receive every payment or distribution of any kind made in
     respect of the Seller Subordinated Debt and file claims and proofs of claim
     and take such other action (including enforcing any security interest or
     other lien securing payment of the Seller Subordinated Debt) as the Trustee
     (on behalf of the Certificateholders) may deem necessary for the exercise
     or enforcement of any of the rights or interests of Certificateholders;
     provided that in the event the Trustee takes such action, it shall apply
     --------
     all proceeds first to the payment of costs under this Seller Note, then to
     the payment of the Senior Obligations and any surplus proceeds remaining
     thereafter to be paid over to whosoever may be lawfully entitled thereto;
     and

          (c) each Seller shall promptly take such action as the Trustee (on
     behalf of the Certificateholders) may request (i) to file appropriate
     claims or proofs of claim in respect of the Seller Subordinated Debt;
     (ii) to execute and deliver to the Trustee (on behalf of the
     Certificateholders) such powers of attorney, assignments, or other
     instruments as the Trustee may request in order to enable it to enforce any
     and all claims with respect to, and any security interests and other liens
     securing payment of, the Seller Subordinated Debt, and (iii) to collect and
     receive any and all payments or distributions which may be payable or
     deliverable upon or with respect to the Seller Subordinated Debt for
     account of the Trustee (on behalf of the Certificateholders).

          THIS SELLER NOTE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE
WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REFERENCE TO ANY CONFLICT OF LAW
PRINCIPLES.
