What to look for when buying furniture

Shopping for furniture can be a headache if you don't know what to look for and the end results can sometimes be infuriating.

The website pissedconsumer.com says the biggest complaints are about defective or inferior furniture. The company may have a seemingly good reputation but don't rely on that alone. Inspect everything, frame drawers, cushions, ask what "kind of wood" it's made with.

You want something that is solid and has a smooth interior. Warranty and extended coverage are also a big source of complaints.

The website says don't rely on the sales person for information. Make sure you read how long the warranty lasts, the people you may need to contract for services and what the warranty doesn't cover.

So before making the big purchase, check the furniture out in person and do your research. Start with sources like Consumer Reports and end with complaint sites like pissedconsumer.com.
