Consider taking someone with you to the store when you are shopping for furniture. This can be a family member, a trusted friend or a fashion forward neighbor. This person is your second set of eyes, and they might notice small details that you have missed. They can also help you to negotiate price if you find that perfect piece.
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.
When purchasing sofas, you should first select one that is very durable and long lasting. After this, you should select based on comfort. Cushions should be supported by a system of springs. Hand-tied 8-way springs are your best bet, but serpentine work, too. Test springs by feeling them through any upholstery. High quality construction means springs close together.
