Purchasing Furniture that Works for You


Purchasing Furniture and decorating your space can mean making big decisions… after all you have to live with it, look at it and use it everyday. Havertys is a great place to purchase furniture, but before you head out to Havertys or vist the Havertys website here are a few tips on purchasing furniture.

When it comes to furniture and decor in my home function and comfort meet style. To my family this means it must functionally work and fit in well for our life with a growing baby and since we spend a lot of time at home we want it to be comfortable to sit on, lounge on, or snuggle on for a family movie night. We also want it to represent our taste and style.

Let’s look at how we furnished and decorated our living room to meet our personal standards.

Function: First decided what type of furniture will fit best in the room you are designing. For example if you are making purchases for a living room you will need to decide if you want a couch and a love seat… a sectional… an additional chair. What will fit best in your space and your life? In our living room we have a couch, a love seat and recliner. We use a large ottoman with storage baskets for all of the baby essentials (instead of running upstairs for every diaper change). When arranging the furniture we wanted to leave a space in the floor the baby to play.

Comfort: We want to be comfortable in our space. Specifically my husband wanted to be able to recline and we wanted couches you could sink into and place to prop your feet up. I will be adding some big pillows soon to add extra comfort.

Style: My husband wanted a recliner but a huge overstuffed chair just isn’t us so we opted for a leather wingback chair that is actually a recliner. Our red love seat adds a pop of color that I love. We finished off the room with damask lampshades, a painting over the couch and family pictures.

So when it comes to purchasing furniture for yourself decided what qualities are most important to you. The style may be more important than comfort to you or you may not care how it looks as long as you can take a good nap on it.
