Furniture Experts: More Than a Salesperson

March 8, 2023  ·  5 min read  ·  Reviewed by Sarah Zubowski

For some people, furniture shopping can be an overwhelming and difficult process, especially if you’re unfamiliar with how to furnish a new home. With so many pieces and styles to choose from, how will you know what’s right for you? Not to mention the added stress of having an inexperienced or aggressive “furniture consultant” following you around the store, pressuring you to buy furniture you aren’t in love with. 

If this unpleasant shopping experience speaks to you, we have good news.

We like to enhance the shopping experience, so if you’re in the market for gorgeous, quality furniture for your home, you’re in luck. Living Designs Furniture employs furniture experts — not pushy salespeople — who are here to ensure that your needs and desires are taken care of. You only want the best for your home, and we only want the best for you.

Why is it better to buy from furniture experts?

Now, we know what you may be thinking: expert vs. salesperson — what’s the difference? Well, we’re here to tell you that there are many essential differences between the two that will make or break your furniture shopping experience. 

Reason #1: Furniture experts have more knowledge

One of the most common furniture buying mistakes to avoid is purchasing expensive, important furniture pieces (such as couches, sectionals, or chairs) from a furniture salesperson who has no idea what they’re talking about. After being in the furniture business for a while, we’ve noticed that many furniture retailers employ individuals who can simply sell furniture, but not because they are particularly knowledgeable about what they’re selling. 

On the other hand, furniture experts know every detail about every piece they sell. Because we handmake all of our furniture in our factory, a furniture expert from Living Designs Furniture can relay the following information:

  • The materials used to construct the piece (for example: high-quality and locally-sourced wood)
  • The manufacturing methods our in-store craftsmen use
  • How long the piece will last against normal wear and tear (our pieces are built to last)
  • What types of upholstery fabric would be best suited to your lifestyle

This is one of the best perks of choosing to shop factory-direct furniture: you’ll know exactly what you’re purchasing and how it will function in your home. 

Reason #2: Furniture experts can give informed recommendations

Because retailers sell a wide variety of items from a wide variety of brands, a furniture salesperson can only retain surface-level knowledge about each product and therefore, cannot help you make the most informed decision about your purchase. All they want is for you to purchase something big. 

On the contrary, because our furniture experts have a deep understanding of what furniture pieces are made and sold in our factory, they can match you with pieces that are better suited to what you need in your home. Do you struggle with back pain? Maybe a sofa with lumbar support would be best for you. Do you love to host? We’d pull out our endless swatches of luxurious performance fabric. The possibilities are endless with an expert by your side.

Reason #3: Furniture experts provide a more personalized shopping experience  

Here at Living Designs Furniture, we like to believe that furniture is personal. What you need out of your home decor is likely different from what someone else needs. That’s why we create a tailored shopping experience for every customer who comes into our showroom — but not all furniture stores take this approach. 

Most furniture stores use a one-size-fits-all approach to selling furniture. Anyone could buy any couch or any armchair regardless of their personal needs or tastes as long as they buy something, right? Wrong. 

When you visit our showroom, our experts take the time to listen to what exactly it is you’re looking for and help you to find your perfect pieces. And because we are one of the best custom furniture makers in Houston, we can customize any piece of furniture to suit your style or satisfy your needs. Our furniture store is made with you in mind, not to suit the masses. 

Our furniture experts are better suited to help you find your dream furniture

Say goodbye to pushy salespeople and hello to experts who are more qualified to give you all of the information you need to make an informed purchase decision. Furniture is an investment, so don’t gamble on some part-time, chain-store employee who has only worked there for two months. Trust that a furniture expert from Living Designs Furniture will smoothly guide you through your personalized buying journey so that you can leave with pieces you love. 

We offer the best quality high-end furniture in Houston for better prices. Come into our showroom today and browse our in-stock furniture or speak with a designer today about creating your own custom piece.
