The best furniture is made from the best materials

How to decide if furniture is good quality

The furniture should look and feel solid. Try rocking or jostling the furniture, it shouldn’t be too noisy or flimsy. On the rear and underside there should be no exposed parts, all fittings should be sanded smooth and well fitted. Only the best quality furniture does this well.

Nothing adds more comfort to a home than a good quality sofa lounge. Unfortunately, many homeowners place more importance on appearance and price than functionality when shopping for sofas. While a sofa may look good, the materials used to construct the sofa furniture can easily stain or break. Choosing the right material for indoor furniture is an important decision when shopping for furniture.

Functionality when choosing a sofa

Many people don’t consider the length of time they want a sofa to last.

It’s not something you buy every couple of years. A good quality sofa should last more than 10years without any issues. Workmanship is the key here. Consider who will be sitting, sleeping or jumping on your sofa.

Why the material matters

Choosing the right type of material used to make an indoor furniture set determines the lifetime of the chairs, recliners, and modular lounges that comprise any living room. Depending on the amount of use and traffic in your living room, wear and tear can be caused by people running into, and knocking against, the indoor furniture.

Sydney Lounge Specialists use Tasmanian Pine in many of their indoor seating pieces. Pine is a lightweight wood, that resists shrinking and swelling. Pine wood’s attractive grain and knots give each piece an authentic look. In home decor, pine furniture compliments well with others, allowing the customer to mix and match pieces.

Usually the level of quality you choose depends on how much you want to spend, and whether you expect to keep it for the rest of your life. Sydney Lounge Specialist bucks this trend; we have a huge range of furniture made from high quality materials at hugely reduced prices. You can even design your own furniture and choose your own high quality materials for a price that is lower than buying ‘off-the-rack’ from other Sydney furniture retailers.

To create a home you love, you need to find furniture that you love.
