In Pursuit of the Perfect Chair: What to Know Before Shopping for Upholstered Furniture

Leave a comment

upholsteryAn article I wrote on how to shop for upholstered furniture recently appeared in Charlottesville HOME, Roanoke Valley HOME and Central Virginia HOME magazines.

Here’s an excerpt:

My husband and I once bought an upholstered chair on impulse. It was a floor model so the price was reduced, and the fabric—a bold print—initially appealed to me.

Within six months, I knew we’d made a mistake. The chair wasn’t comfortable, and it was too small for the space. Worse, the fabric was so loud, I couldn’t decorate around it. We moved the chair from room to room, hoping to find a place where it would work better. Ultimately, it came to rest in a dark corner of our unfinished basement.
