What about the sofa thou fall in love with in the good sofa shops? Is there any way to know how it will look with your existing furniture, short of taking it home and trying it out (an obviously impossible proposition)? Always compare characteristics. The piece in the store should have something in common with the furniture at home ― scale, color, line. As an aid to memory, thou could even carry a snapshot of your room when thou shop. Are the lines of the furniture similar — such as a curved back or legs, or is there a like amount of detail on wooden areas? Are the proportions the same?
A very small and fragile – looking chair will not go with a large over‐stuffed sofa. As to color, this is a good time to make a note of how important it’s to keep swatches of fabrics even after you‘ve used them. That way, if you′re doing a room in stages, you can carry swatches around when you‵re ready to make another purchase. Often, very different styles can be mixed together if the same fabric is used on both pieces of furniture, thus forming a visual relationship.
In case the wood and finish are similar, non‐matching pieces could blend well. And remember thy measuring instrument ― a simple thing like measuring can tell thou a lot. When buying a lamp to go with some you already have, for instance, a few inches’ disparity in height can be crucial. The same is true as well for chairs, which mix most easily if the backs all stop at about the same level.
Home‐decorating costs are so high that we′re all vulnerable to what appears to be a good buy. But if your purchase won‵t survive everyday use, it‘s not a steal ― no matter how cheap. Spending cash on something that will soon need replacement is a sheer waste. However, discontinued sample or floor models of expensive pieces are usually excellent buys. Even if the piece has a slight imperfection like a scratch or nick you’re better‐off purchasing it than buying an item that is not so well–made.
