Stay away from any piece of furniture held together with glue or nails. They wont hold up as well as a piece that has ends that are joined together. In addition, these pieces are much less likely to be able to bear weight, meaning that you wont get as much use out of them.
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.
If you have upholstery that needs a proper cleaning, consider going with a professional cleaning company. When you are choosing a cleaning company to take care of your upholstery furniture, make sure that they do not use products that are tetrachloride-based. These products may damage the integrity of your pieces.
