Car To Furniture Analogy – Furniture Buying Guide

Trying to convey the quality and durability of furniture brands online is difficult. We like to use cars as any easy way to relate for most people. We call this the “Car to Furniture Analogy – Furniture buying Guide.”

Like cars, furniture is a large purchase and the better educated you are, the better you can make a decision that fits your needs. Great furniture should also last a long time despite how hard you use it. This is a great way to better understand which furniture brands are best when looking for your next furniture purchase.

These brands are built to last. Coaster furniture, Catnapper Furniture, Southern Motion, Lane Furniture, Broyhill Furniture, Coast to Coast Accents, Franklin Furniture and Homelegance Furniture are

some of the brands that build all their furniture with high quality materials. If you purchase your furniture from either one of these manufacturers you will see that it is constructed with all hardwood and durable fabrics. You will get a lot of mileage (or years, if you will) out of furniture by Acme and Coaster.

Southern Motion

Just like Honda, Southern Motion’s commitment to value and quality has helped them achieve status as a leader in the reclining sofa market. The options of power recline, power headrests, charging stations, layflat and wall-hugger in addition to a huge custom selection of fabric and leather covers has made Southern Motion a living room furniture favorite.

These again are meant to last, look great, feel great and yet still are reasonably priced for what you get. Some of the brands in this category are ART Furniture, Classic Home Furniture, James Martin Furniture, Luke Leather, Moes Home Furniture, Parker House Furniture, and Uttermost to name a few.
