Having been in the design industry for some time now, I’ve worked to find furniture for many different homes and families. And what I found over the years as I purchased furniture from “big box” stores was that when it comes to the primary pieces of furniture in a home (chairs, sofas, ottomans, and the like) the combination of quality and durability was lacking in a big way. So many of the families I’ve worked with told me that they were waiting to purchase their “good” furniture—beautiful, quality, long-lasting pieces for their homes—for when their kids grew up and were out of the house. They didn’t want to purchase beautiful furniture because it wasn’t functional or comfortable for a big family or a house full of people, but they didn’t like purchasing lower quality pieces in the meantime because they found themselves having to replace them every few of years.
