Do you want to buy a new sofa?
We all have a friend or neighbor who has bought a Chaisse Longue, maybe with extending seats, with very high backs, and perhaps you are thinking of buying something similar. Maybe you have also acted or have seen someone acting the following way: in a furniture store, trying a sofa sitting in an upright position to check its comfort, leaning back and hitting the headrest with your head a few times to make sure that it supports the head completely. However, probably if we asked you how you usually sit, you would almost certainly say, “I usually lie down on the sofa.”
You may also have thought: “these days I’m buying a lot of things on the internet, I will buy the sofas on the internet too, I’m sure I can save a lot of money …”
At this stage we would tell you that it is not the same purchasing clothes as buying a sofa; probably you know someone who has bought a sofa on the internet and upon arrival, it was not as he thought. A sofa is an item that lasts for a long time, it has a significant economic value, and therefore we think that it is worth getting good advices to avoid making a mistake: most times, buying cheap turns out expensive.
So we recommend you to use the internet to get as much information as possible, not only from manufacturers and sellers, but also from forums and expert opinions. You should be able to distinguish between opinions of an expert and the most usual, which are interested opinions from companies, those who transfer you to their brand when you ask for any particular brand.
When you have obtained the necessary information, choose the store which best suits you and visit them to let them know your needs. If you are looked after by a professional salesperson (we prefer to call them advisors), you will find out that there are many more options than you would have imagined.
The most important thing is that you get the most out of it, there are many good times that you can spend at home enjoying your sofa; but if you make a mistake when choosing the sofa, either due to comfort, design or quality, you will have many bad times and dislikes.
