However, most of todays furnishings are still not designed to be moved around regularly. As anyone who has tried to relocate with traditional furniture can attest to, nearly every move results in some serious damage to ones most valued furnishings, and it is often very expensive to repair any type of significant damage to traditional furniture unless the owner is an experienced craftsman. This is one of the reasons why less families are purchasing furniture these days with the intent to pass the pieces down to their children some day, as most furniture simply is not designed to put up with the frequency with which people move about in the modern era.
Real Wood Shows its Quality. You can tell real wood from its smell, its feel and the glow that only comes from well oiled or waxed hardwood. Leather has its own feel and smell, although its not so much the leather that counts, but its quality. Many types of leather are so thin that you can easily stick your fingers through them - and dont believe anybody that sells you furniture saying that it cannot be damaged. Fine furniture can be damaged - it can be knocked, scraped, stained and scratched just the same as any other furniture. If somebody tells you that this table will resist all knocks and scratches then they are either being economical with the truth (lying) or trying to sell you a synthetic utilitarian piece. Genuine wood is vulnerable. Only thermosetting resins can resist knocks and scratches. The same considerations are true whether you are purchasing furniture from Chicago, Miami or from furniture stores in Atlanta. Atlanta furniture stores are just as likely to sell you cheap lounge furniture as stores in Chicago. How can you tell? How do you know if you are buying a genuine hardwood dining table or one made from particleboard and cheap veneer?
A major benefit of such furniture events to the general public is being able to view new products often before they are available on general sale. Its the old story: many new products or even new ideas in furniture design or functionality fail to sell because few people know they exist. These types of exhibitions are not so much sales on furniture as furniture shows, during which orders can be take, but are primarily intended to show people what is available and which furniture stores and outlets are offering them.For that reason, many items of furniture can be sold at lower prices than normal. They are not offered at reduced prices because they are in anyway imperfect. In fact, some could be introductory prices for completely new designs and concepts. However, by selling a restricted number of items at a reduced price, a particular manufacturer can get his products known and furniture distributors and outlets get feet through the door. It is well worth the cost reduction of a particular item to bring a new customer into the showroom. The livelihood of both the maker and the seller of the furniture depends on the customer. It is a three-way arrangement. There is nothing to be lost by offering a customer a concession now and again, particularly if that person returns later to make more purchases.
Quality Furniture Stores. There are several stores that will sell you genuine quality living room furniture, and fine bedroom furniture made from solid hardwood, such as oak or teak, or with a hardwood base but a beautiful walnut veneer. Rosewood is another beautiful wood, as are maple and the beautiful deep red mahogany. Some prefer pine which is softwood with a clean, fresh natural look, and while not as resistant to damage as hardwood, many prefer it for kitchen and bedroom furniture. Search for manufacturers such as Stickley Furniture, American Craftsman, Sherrill furniture, The Custom Shoppe and Southwood furniture or any of a number if similar firms that you can find online, and you can be sure of purchasing high quality furniture that will last as long as you will. You should never be in a situation where you think a piece of furniture looks high quality, but are wondering whether or not it is in fact just chipboard, particle board or plywood with a glued veneer or laminate. If reputable firms such as those above offer that, you will be informed of the veneer and the base wood - no attempts to trick you! An online search of what is available on the internet is an excellent way of finding good quality custom furniture. Look for fine furniture manufacturers, or companies that distribute their work. You will not find high quality furniture in flat-pack format. When you purchase fine bedroom furniture, each piece will be delivered in its correct form and not put together in your home with screws and plugs, many of which might be missing!
