Why Furniture is not like Campbell’s Soup

Why Furniture is not like Campbell’s Soup

Campbell’s has delivered on consistency for years, so we all know what to expect. In furniture, the fact that you know the brand doesn’t guarantee quality. Most of the finest furniture produced today is made by companies you’ve never heard of. Their dollars go into the product, not on the TV screen.

When shopping, be sure to ask about construction, not about branding. Upholstery should have kiln dried hardwood frames, and hand-tied coil springs.  And you should be aware that veneer is not a bad thing if done well.  A beautiful dining table top with decorative inlay could not be done without veneers.

If you know the questions to ask, someone who is trying to sell you an inferior product will be running away.

Feel free to contact us if you have any tips you’d like to share.
