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%!
Bernhardt Furniture. Bernhardt Furniture is a high-end manufacturer known for its soft styles and lustrous materials. As another testament to the deep roots of many furniture manufacturers, Bernhardt has been around since 1889—operated by the Bernhardt family ever since. Bernhardt was founded in Lenoir, North Carolina by John Bernhardt, and is operated today by Alex Bernhardt Sr., Anne Bernhardt, and Alex Bernhardt Jr. This well-aged family operation is certainly among the top tier of furniture brands on the market today, and operate over 12 manufacturing facilities and have a 75,000 square foot showroom in High Point, North Carolina—regarded by many as the furniture capital of the world. While truly impressive in its stature, Bernhardt also offers very noteworthy execution in the designs they unveil each market. Bernhardt is committed to responsible manufacturing practices in the labor they use, as well as their impact on the environment. The have received EFEC certification for most of their US-based manufacturing facilities, and further their endeavors of environmental stewardship by working such other such organizations as Greenguard 2 Bernhardt offers a tremendous selection of finely-crafted furniture that really focuses heavily on soft-lines, neutral colors, and attention to detail often overlooked. Truly, they have styles for every occasion, and considering they are now in their third century of operations—having survived The Great Depression and two World Wars—it's clear that Bernhardt's title of being one of the best furniture brands around is well-deserved. Bernhardt doesn't offer direct-to-consumer sales, so you'll have to check out their dealer locator page to find a local seller near you.
Pick the right size. When deciding on the size of the sofa, you need to take into consideration a variety of aspects. For example, look at the whole room and figure out how much space are you willing to let the sofa occupy and whether or not there are other pieces of furniture that you need to include there. Perhaps you'd also like to have a couch in the room or a coffee table.
