Really look at the legs of any furniture you are considering buying. Those legs need to not only support weight, theyll also be in contact with your flooring. If they look like theyll do damage to your floor due to the materials used (like metal), then you may want to opt for a different style.
When buying furniture, always try to haggle with the salesperson. While haggling is not generally accepted in most retail industries, the furniture industry is an exception. There is usually a pretty steep markup associated with the furniture price and you can grab a great bargain if you try to haggle.
Thoroughly check any cushions on the furniture you are buying. Cushions should be firm, and have a cover that can be removed for cleaning. Try to find ones that have the same fabric on both sides. It will cost a bit more than one-sided cushions with a backing, but they will last longer and wear more evenly because you can flip them over every few months.
