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.

As somebody who is currently furnishing my condo from scratch, I needed some options for furnishings which are decent high quality but don't cost an arm along with a leg, and also do not come from Ikea. I was able to find an excellent quality desk, it was delivered to the store by 50 percent days, and that i could pick it up with no problems. The hours are a bit restricted, however i am pleased with my buy. I could put the desk with each other by myself in a few hours because I wanted to avoid the additional fee. General, happy with my experiencing and would buy once again.Strolled in looking to cost a sofa, was greeted immediately by Austin. He was extremely expert

The house furniture Company! I learned about this place from a couple buddies which have bought their couches from here and that i really thought they appeared incredible. So I found the store to determine what I can get. I was welcomed right away by Joan despite the fact that she was busy with an additional client. Angeline helped me to determine things i wanted and provided some great recommendations to help me determine exactly what I wanted. I had been amazed by the excellent support and the amazing showroom which was set up. Every thing was very clean and well-organized. I'm pleased with what I obtained and will recommend this place to everyone I know.

Impressively helpful to say the least. It was a pleasing encounter because I understood Danae was going far above to show me each and every customizable choice. I had been surprised at her degree of interest to help me discover exactly what I wanted. At no reason was there a hurry to obtain my final result. It was awesome to understand she was much less thinking about making a big sale and more concerned about helping me personally. A truly amazing design advisor, I would recommend Danae any day.
