Guide for Buying High-Quality Furnitures

From buying at the right time to choosing colors, here's what you need to find furniture that lasts, and save time and cash while you're at it.


Furniture tips: wood

1. Know your wood types

Wood furniture falls into three categories: solid wood, veneers, and particle board or composite wood.

Solid wood furniture is typically more expensive than other types and looks great, but can be susceptible to scratches and water rings. Veneers have an inexpensive wood base covered by several thin layers of better-quality wood. Because of the cheaper core, veneers aren’t as expensive as solid wood pieces. Particle board and composite wood pieces are made from a combination of wood pulp, plastics, and resin, basically the scraps of the furniture world. These are the cheapest type of wood furniture and can look decent, but won’t hold up for decades.

2. Check drawers and cabinets

Open the drawers and cabinets. Make sure the drawer pulls all the way out, latches properly, and then shuts evenly. Make sure doors open, remain in an open position (instead of snapping closed while you’re trying to get something out of the cabinet), and shut again. Check the handles and knobs. They should fit tightly and not jiggle or turn.

3. Avoid nails and glue

Look for wood joined at ends and corners, not glued or nailed in. Known in the manufacturing world as wood joinery, these pieces are studier and can take more weight. Check out Basic Woodworking Joints from Wood Magazine to see examples.


Furniture tips: fabric

4. Consider your lifestyle

Let your lifestyle determine what colors and fabrics you choose. For example, I have a large, hyper dog constantly climbing on the furniture. If I brought home a white suede couch, it would be torn apart and stained in minutes. If you have kids or pets, stick with dark colors and stain-resistant tough fabrics like linen or tweed.

5. Be realistic about colors

I once bought an orange corduroy armchair at a furniture outlet store. At the time, my house was decorated in orange, blue, and white, and I thought I’d love those colors forever. As it turned out, “forever” was about a year. I got so sick of the bright orange I sold the chair for a fraction of what I paid. Learn from my mistake: Stick to neutral colors for your bigger and more expensive pieces. Save bold colors for décor pieces.

6. Inspect the legs

The legs should be heavy, wood, and jointed to the frame of the sofa or chair, not nailed. Plastic, rubber, or metal legs don’t look as nice, can tear up your floors, and won’t hold up as well. Same goes for nailed-in wood legs. If you’re spending more than $1,000 on a sofa, look for one with a fifth leg in the middle. They provide extra support – you won’t find them on many cheaper sofas.

7. Check the springs

If you like firm sofas, look for one with traditional coiled springs. If you want a softer feel, go with zigzag coils. Before you buy, take off the cushions and press down on the base of the sofa. The coils should push down and spring back into place immediately.

8. Test the cushions

Look for firm cushions with a removable cover matching on both sides. Firm cushions hold up better over time. Fully covered cushions cost a bit more than ones with the pattern on one side and a plain white or tan backing, but they’ll last longer and wear evenly if you can flip them over every few months. Find removable covers that are easily washable.

The support here's incredible. I needed a house furnishings as soon as possible and I have an extremely busy schedule. I discovered this place on Craig's list and offered them a phone call. Being at function, Derek called me back again and that i inquired about a set and informed him I didn't have time to get in shop for that buy. He soon started texting me images of home furniture structures, boxes, desks and tables. We finally decided on a collection and that he refined every thing. My furniture was delivered just as planned and assembled too. The shipping guy was prompt and service was excellent. The quality of the furniture was remarkably exceptional for the cost. The house furnishings publish goes far above support! I will be recommending e-commerce to family and friends.

I purchased my furnishings here and that i experienced the very best experience of any furnishings shop. I returned and wound up buying our kitchen island along with a chest for the end of my house furniture. I shopped the prices and located this area couldn't be matched. Joe was so experienced and with no pressure to purchase like other stores. I send this place to any or all my family and friends. I just can't say enough great things about The furnishings Post and Joe....both you and your location are terrific.

Arrived after looking around for a couple days. Sales guys had been excellent and Brandon helped me by helping cover their the offer. Not pushy, provided directly answers on all my concerns. I ended up with a great deal on the Serta sofa and adore seat combo. Shipping was next morning even though guaranteed for Wednesday. Pleased I proceeded to go in. Highly recommend!
