You want furniture that fits your life as it is now. That means no delicate pieces if you live in a rough and tumble household. No white cushions if youve got big dogs that shed a lot. Make the right choices based off of how you live.

If you are trying to shop for furniture made in either fully or at least partially environmentally responsible manners, look out for three possible certifications.

The Green Seal organization also verifies furniture, simply saying Green Seal on the label.

If you need a certain piece, you can save a lot of money by patiently waiting for the price to be lowered. You might even ask your favorite furniture store when the item will be marked at a lower price.

If you have children or pets, it is best to steer clear of delicate fabrics and light colors. These will be worn through and stained in no time. A darker, sturdier fabric will hold up to the abuse, and hides many stains.

Sit down on the couch, lay down on the couch and curl up on the couch for at least five minutes to make sure that it is comfortable to you. There is nothing worse than buying a new living room suite only to get it home and realize that you dont find it comfortable.

Despite their name, these insects do not just infest bedding and mattresses. They burrow into the tiny crevices in upholstered furniture too. Make sure you remove the cushions and check in the cracks for evidence of bed bugs before making any purchasing decisions.

If they are not willing to discount the price, ask if they will throw in small extras, like a lamp or end table, to make the deal a better one.
