Furniture is one of the most important purchases you’ll make for your home or office. That’s because furniture is functional and decorative all at once. Choosing the right furniture can make or break a room—whether it’s a sofa and entertainment center for a family room or a desk and bookshelf for an office. Your furniture must be comfortable and useful while simultaneously contributing to the overall décor, mood and composure of the room. Because of this, furniture is the heart and soul of practically every room.
