When it comes to shopping for leather furniture, be sure to keep the different leather grades in mind. There are both high and low quality leathers out there to suit many different tastes and budgets. From highest to lowest quality is: top grain, pure aniline, semi aniline, nubuck, distressed, and suede. Choosing higher quality leather ensures that you will have furniture that lasts for many years.
If you want to save money on furniture, consider alternatives to traditional shopping. Goodwill stores sometimes have pieces. Check out yard and garage sales. Also peruse Craiglist or local Freecycle options. Any community of some size has a secondary market of furniture not on showroom floors. Even consider going to storage locker auctions. If you see a piece you like, talk to the winning bidder for that locker.
Before you buy furniture, know the measurements of the space you want to put it into. It is hard to simply look at something in the store and determine its dimensions. When the piece arrives, its too late to change your mind. Therefore, ensure you measure your space before buying to keep this problem from occurring.
