On Modern Home Furnishings – Quick Tips on Buying Furniture Based on Experience

Almost everywhere in this era of modern living, you may find home furnishings that are vigorously sleek and innovative. I recall sometime in my office in the Philippines where we had our division room renovated; Individual cubicles were installed and see through dividers were erected, matched with cozy chairs and sofas to lie on during break times.

A year or so passed, the new furnishings unfortunately wore out its temporal beauty and seemingly unshakable might – corner and edge caps started to fall and eventually led to diminishing value. Later on we discovered that the materials composition were crappy and obviously not within the minimum standard. Of course the bidder or shall we say contractor involved in the procurement of such furniture is on the first line to be questioned in the incident but to avoid the hassle, we just charged it to experience. Too bad, I was even on the plans of contacting the said furniture company for my own future sets to grace my own future mansion but I got disappointed sooner that I should have expected.

Lessons learned and a few tips:

  • Do not be fooled by very attractive marketing! Ask questions and recommendations from colleagues, family and friends.
  • Shop around and take a look at other things in the neighborhood.
  • Do not rush on buying things – learn and practice the art of patience.
  • Do not be tempted by the sales and bonus offers – think about the items quality.
  • Do not forget your basic rights as consumer – make sure to ask about the stores policy on refunds and exchanging items.
  • Read the embedded contracts.
  • Attend product showcases and assess diligently.
  • Get a reliable procurer, should your end need such.
