If you need to purchase furniture for your entire house, ask to see if your furniture store offers a multi purchase discount plan.

Try to choose furniture that is constructed using wood joinery techniques. Avoid buying furniture that is held together with nails and glue. Pieces that are held together with wood joinery will hold up to more weight and for several years after the nail and glue pieces fall apart.

If it has, then it will last much longer without warping, especially when it comes to changes in humidity.

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