Upholstered Dining Chairs on Sale
To find upholstered dining chairs on sale, homeowners should start by combing the ads in their local paper. Furniture stores usually post advertisements just before their big sales start. Circle those pieces that interest you, and then head down to the store, ad in hand. You don’t want to fall for the “bait-and-switch” tactic that many stores pull on unsuspecting customers. The advertised merchandise is the store’s group of “loss leaders,” that attract customers to the store. Skilled furniture salesmen will then attempt to talk the customers into a higher-priced item. Stick to your guns and only consider the dining chairs that are significantly reduced in price.
Make sure that the dining chairs you select are of high quality. A bargain is only a bargain if the item is quality merchandise and only if it is merchandise you need. An off-brand set of dining chairs on sale upholstered in cheap fabric and imitation hardwoods is no bargain even at a low price.
To identify quality merchandise, look for name brands, quality fabrics and leathers, and real wood construction. Upholstery should be plush, sewn well, with no uneven seams, loose buttons, snags, or rips. The padding in the upholstery should be even, with no lumps or empty spots.
Sit in the chairs. Pull them up to a table to make sure that they will be comfortable during mealtime. Look the entire set of chairs over for flaws. Don’t just listen to the salesperson’s rhetoric. Read the labels.
If you are unfamiliar with furniture terminology, fabric selection, or types of wood or wood finishes, take an experienced friend or family member along with you to the store. Do some research on the Internet or the library before you head off to the furniture store.
Do some comparison-shopping. You July find a better deal online or in another store. Dining chairs are a big investment. With proper care, they can last a lifetime. Make sure that you select the right dining chairs for your needs. To have a fine set of upholstered dining chairs is worth all of the time you invest in their selection.
