Inspect the furniture to learn how it is built. Try to choose furniture that is constructed using wood joinery techniques. Avoid buying furniture that is held together with nails and glue. Pieces that are held together with wood joinery will hold up to more weight and for several years after the nail and glue pieces fall apart.
If you mainly purchase furniture online, you should actually go visit physical stores at some point. While online research is great for shopping prices, dimensions and colors, theres no substitute for being in the physical presence of a piece of furniture. This will help you gauge comfort levels to see if the furniture suits you.
Get rid of a piece whenever you get a new piece of furniture. You run a real risk of cluttering your home when you get too many new pieces and subtract nothing. It is of course your choice what goes in your home, but you arent going to have too much room if you never get rid of anything.
