Here Is Why Used Furniture is Better

I remember when we bought our first credenza when we got married; a beautiful Broyhill in walnut from the 1950s.  Nothing compares to this piece and we still have it under our TV today.  Whenever I pass by it on the way out our house I am grateful we bought it instead of an overpriced piece from a big box store.  It can be easy to get caught up in the allure of shiny new furniture, there are plenty of reasons to consider buying used instead. Here are four reasons why you should consider buying used furniture:

  1. Craftsmanship: Used furniture is often crafted with better quality materials and construction methods that are no longer used in modern furniture production. These older pieces were made to last and are often sturdier and more durable than their newer counterparts.

  2. History and character: Every piece of used furniture has its own unique history and character. Whether it's a vintage dresser with intricate carvings or a retro armchair with bold colors and patterns, used furniture can add a sense of personality and charm to your home that new furniture simply can't match.

  3. Reduced packaging waste: New furniture often comes with a lot of unnecessary packaging waste, such as Styrofoam, cardboard, and plastic. By choosing used furniture, you're helping to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

  4. Supporting small businesses: When you shop for used furniture at small, locally-owned stores like The Woven Home, you're supporting a small business owner who is passionate about sustainability and helping customers find unique and affordable furniture. Your purchase helps to keep these businesses thriving and supporting their local communities.

We hope these additional reasons inspire you to consider buying used furniture for your home.
