How to Buy a Couch

We all get to a certain age where we decide that we are going to buy new furniture instead of getting hand me downs from family or friends...I have not hit that point yet, just FYI.

Anyways, how do you go about buying something that you have never shopped for before. I mean most people aren't going couch shopping everyday. What do you look for? Do you want firm or soft? Down or foam? Light or dark color? These are a lot of questions, and you have to know the answer or you will be in a 10+ year relationship with furniture you hate!

Well hopefully these few tips and tricks over the next few days from Erika will help you out.

"One of the things I did with a client that I think really helped was furniture shopping with him one afternoon. I made him sit in different quality sofas and chairs to be able to feel the difference.  You get what you pay for and price really does reflect quality and comfort.

I also showed him the difference between style, depth, cushion fill, fabric, leather, details like nailtrim, tufting, etc. and he was able to figure out what he liked and what he didn't.  If you're going to be spending this kind of money - you don't want a sofa that is really uncomfortable or hard to maintain and both of those qualities are different for every person...."
