The Best Places to Buy Furniture in Seattle

by Haley Carroll

Furniture affects everything about a room: how it looks, what feelings it inspires, and how people physically experience the space.

Furniture pieces are the largest objects in a room, consequently making the loudest statement on the style and tone of the room.

A room’s furniture is how people interact with a room: they sit on the chairs and sofas, they write on the desk, they eat at the table. If the furniture is uncomfortable or does not perform its intended function, the room will fall flat for whoever’s in it.

Suffice it to say, furniture is a big deal! When taking all this into consideration, as well as the financial investment you make when you furnish your home, you’ll want to get it right and acquire furniture that will be beautiful and functional for many years.

Unique furniture helps your home feel like its entirely your own; it communicates your special taste and personality to your visitors. But where do you find furnishings that don’t feel cookie cutter?
