Description
Furnishing your home can be one of the most enjoyable experiences or it can be a nightmare. When most consumers enter a furniture store they are nervous, apprehensive, and generally fearful of buying the wrong piece, or being taken advantage of by the retailer. Armed with this book, any consumer can navigate their way, with confidence, through this process.

"Shopping for Furniture" is a first-of-its-kind look at the furniture business by an insider. Learn which manufacturers are considered top-flight and which are middle-class, and to distinguish good design and quality construction. When does highest price mean best value? Which are the "can't miss" furniture stores around the country? Why is there a thousand-dollar difference between apparently identical sofas? Lewin answers these questions and many more and offers sage advice for both the first-time and the veteran furniture shopper.
