To buy furniture or not to buy furniture?...that is the question.

covenantbuildersMay 30, 2010

I posted on the "Home Decorating" forum also but thought I might get some good advice here also.

We are in the market to buy some bedroom furniture. Have narrowed it down to Kincaid "Chateau Royale" or Durham "Marquis de Lafayette". I am having trouble finding floor samples to see "in person". I have seen other collections from these companies and like their workmanship.

Time is now a factor because Boyles Furniture is offering free shipping until tomorrow and it will save us quite a bit of money. They also gave us a great quote on the Kincaid. Would you buy furniture without seeing an actual floor sample?

I don't think I have ever "tested" a bed before I bought it, I don't see an issue with buying it without seeing it.

Nope....I would want to see at least part of the grouping in person, touch it and look at it from all sides before I popped for that kind of money.
I have had enough problems with ordering a piece in a certain color or finish after seeing seeing something in a furniture show room.
