When it comes to furniture buying: Quality > Saving Money

Has this ever happened to you? You purchase a piece of clothing/bedding/furniture because it was inexpensive. Unfortunately, after a few times of wear/washing/usage, the item no longer looks/feels the same, in fact, it starts to fall apart quickly.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to save money, but it’s important to know frugality doesn’t mean we should purchase cheap items. It makes sense to spend money on quality for something that works better, and lasts longer.

When it comes to furniture, Quality triumphs saving money. According to Lifehacker.com: “you should buy based on how long you plan to live in a specific place, and how frequently you use a piece. Buying a cheap couch is going to wind up making you miserable if you spend a few hours on it every night, and skimping on a bed and mattress will make you miserable no matter what.

We want to showcase some gorgeous pieces from Century Furniture this week. They are a reputable vendor that we’ve had a wonderful long term relationship with. We’ve also included some good tips about furniture shopping to keep in mind. Enjoy!

Wood Composition: Think scratch resistant when it comes to surfaces, solid structure is key

Wood Construction: Check out the joint: Exposed nails, glue might become issues in the long run. Dowels, screws and dovetail are good.

Upholstered Composition: Check inside cushions, know your density weight, cleaning code.

Upholstered Construction: coil, cone, sinuous and grid springs can all be comfortable, make sure you test by sitting at various spots. Squeeze the arms and back, frames should not be felt.
