A lot of furniture in these places were used to stage model homes. After the models are sold, the furniture usually end up in consignment centers. If you look hard enough, you can sometimes find high-end furniture at a very affordable price.

Firm cushions will last much longer than softer ones. If the cushions have removable covers, check to see if they are machine washable. Your furniture will look good for a much longer period of time if you can wash the cushions.

Using fasteners, adhesives, finishes, and polishes can negatively affect both the current and future values of the pieces. Some of these products can dramatically discolor or completely alter the appearance of the pieces.

Doing so will allow you to fit the table into a smaller space, but you can also extend the leaf when you have company over and need more seating. You can always store the extra chairs in a garage or basement when you are not using them.

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.

This can damage the material and shorten the life of these items. You should avoid placing furniture near air conditioning units as well, because the extreme cold can have a damaging effect on the material.
