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%!
Over time, sofa cushions and back pillows show wear and tear that cannot be fixed. Sofa couches are expensive to replace, so current movements to re-use and re-cycle may have a message for you!
You can look for a re-upholsterer near you (always an option), but you may be surprised to find that even your sofa can be renewed online. Fabric manufacturers now make their custom sewing work available through online web retail stores, particularly sellers of futon covers and bedding collections. Some of our finest American fabric manufacturers collectively offer thousands of fabrics from which to choose, including fabrics from top designers, at pretty reasonable prices.
