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.

I just purchased a complete over full garbage home furniture and a pair of complete home furniture. What an incredible offer I acquired....unbelievable!!! Ask for Rich! He will handle you. I looked on Craig's list and visited several furnishings stores. Wealthy defeat all prices. The house furnitures and residential furniture have been in stock which is very good news. Occasionally you have to wait weeks for brand new furnishings to come in. I even obtained a totally free present. I will not say what it was. You will just have to go see Rich on your own!!

Remarkably helpful as you would expect. It was a pleasing encounter since i knew Danae was heading above and beyond to show me every customizable option. I had been surprised by her level of interest to help me discover precisely what I wanted. At no reason was there a hurry to get my end result. It had been amazing to understand she was much less thinking about making a large purchase and much more concerned about helping me personally. A really amazing design advisor, I would recommend Danae any day.

We went to the Costa Mesa display room to just search and ended up buying our perfect sofa. The vast selection of fabrics is incredible. Costs are reasonable and the support was excellent. While the pair were designs and materials, Kathy helped us out and pulled some materials for us according to our needs. She was excellent and you should request her when you go to the store. She is really aware on design and really listens to what there are here. She had alot of innovative input and I'm so deeply in love with our final choice. Our experience was awesome and we now have the perfect couch for our house. Can't wait to win the photo competition.
