I have been a follower of this forum for a long time and basically this is a good forum for new homeowners wanting to buy furniture. I have some thoughts I would like to share with everyone: 1. Buy from established retailers. There have been many many consumers burnt by dodgy shops in the last couple of years. Many of them have paid deposits or even made full payments at shops and these shops have closed down without delivering product. On this forum alone these shops include: Executive Living, The Montella, Species and Sense Art. A good way to tell if the retailer has been around a good long time is by looking at their GST Registration number or their Company Registration number on the sales orders. The first 4 digits show the year the company was registered. It is tempting to buy from such companies because they will make a lot of promises on warranties and give big discounts. But if they close down, who is going to honour their warranties. For example, Executive Living came out promising 5 year warranties on their sofas. What difference does it make if they offer 10 year warranties. They have closed down. 2. You will get what you pay for. There is no such thing as a super deal in the real world, if something is really really cheap you should really really not buy it because good furniture costs money to make. So if something is really cheap either the quality is compromised or the seller does not plan to deliver. So what is really really cheap: 1. Fabric sofas below $800 2. 3 Seater leather sofas below $1200 3. L-Shape leather sofas below $1500 4. Spring mattresses below $500 5. Pocket spring mattresses below $800 If you find the above items below those prices and they are not on clearance, think really hard. As consumers, you work hard for your money, spend wisely.
