    We can't count furniture.
    All the furniture in this display is on sale for/at half price.
    All the funiture in this display is 50% off. I'd use this one
    All the furniture in this display is half price.
    All the furniture in this display is half off.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
