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%!
Does the upholsterer a mile away have a thousand fabrics at his or her disposal to offer to you? Probably not, but web retail stores do because they can work directly with many large and small fabric manufacturers to bring you 1000 fabric choices every day in simple prints, twill fabrics, complex and elegant designs, and intricately woven fabrics. Upholstery fabrics comprise about 25% to 40% of the offerings, in a variety of price categories.
If your style is casual and you want to entertain friends in your living room, consider a sectional sofa. The sectional is perfect for when you or your friends want to kick back and relax while having a great conversation or watching some TV. It is great for family time too. There are a couple ways to use a sectional. You can put it in the corner of the room, so you maximize your living space. This is great if you want to use your sofa while watching TV. Or, you can place it so that the back of the sofa splits the room in half, so to speak. That way, you create a cozy little area for conversation. If you do not have a television or fireplace in your living room, add a recliner or loveseat facing the couch. That helps further create the sociable atmosphere.
