Department store and collapsible furniture can only last you for so long. If you invest in sturdy, well-crafted furniture, you could save a lot of money and even be able to pass the furniture along to the next generation.
Here’s how to choose furniture for your home…
Good wood is worth it
Think of a piece you use every day. Choose to invest in that. Think of a trustworthy artisan or furniture store and set out to find a piece that's made of heavy wood. Also check for sturdiness, secure joints, details and finish. It won't be cheap, but it will be worth it.
Big is not always beautiful or useful
Don't buy furniture just for the look. Make it a part of your everyday life. That's what makes it truly priceless. In passing it on, you don't only help another side of the family, you're also passing on a true heirloom.
Go for a design you love
You don't need an art auction catalogue or an art history book to justify your sense of style.
