Find the right upholstery material. It's important to determine your priorities when selecting the upholstery material for a sofa. For example, if you want the living room to look elegant and classy, you can get a leather sofa. Fabric is considered more casual. The most durable fabric options include cotton, linen and synthetic microfiber. If you have pets or small kids, stay away from materials that stain easily or are difficult to maintain.
Furniture is one of the most important, yet least appreciated aspects of life. You rest on it, your kids play on it, you sleep on it, and in many cases, you have it your entire life. Many people don't appreciate the sheer size of the furniture industry and are tricked into believing that WalMart, Costco, and BigLots! are the only places to buy furniture. These furniture retailers offer truly cheap furniture, as affordable as it is fickle, and often omit any consideration for quality in pursuit of hitting a price point. These are the $300 sofa sets, the $250 bedroom sets, and the $25 cocktail tables—marketed to compulsive and low-income buyers. BigLots will finance a $500 sofa for 12 months, and jump at the opportunity to start charging a whopping 29.99% interest rate after that. 1 These retailers don't care about the lifecycle of their products, and ultimately not about you. While the total market share of these types of companies is staggering, there are still so many quality furniture brands available. While these brands aren't cheap by comparison, purchasing these products online can save a tremendous amount of money—often as much as 40%!
Kincaid Furniture. Kincaid furniture is by far one of the most-respected furniture brands on this list, and have demonstrated for nearly 4 generations that American-made Solid Wood furniture can still survive in an outsourced industry. Kincaid follows the ultra-durable guidelines of many traditional American furniture manufacturing practices, illustrated well in their diverse use of such jointery as Mortise and tenon, Tongue and groove, Dove-tailing, and Pegged tenon techniques. These are all artisan methods of American craftsmanship that are synonymous with solid-wood construction—which is Kincaid's specialty. You'll find that solid-wood offers an entire new array of design possibilities, such as smooth-rounded edges, truly natural distressing, and unparalleled longevity. The only people that don't love hardwood furniture are usually the movers, though even they respect the craftsmanship! Kincaid is now owned by the Home Goods behemoth La-Z-Boy, though remains committed to domestic hard-woods manufacturing and design. Kincaid furniture is available in many local stores, and offers extensive options for all of their collections. You can visit their dealer locator page to find a local shop near you. Kincaid furniture may be difficult to find online, but they are easily one of the best furniture brands in the business today.
