Know the difference between Cheap and Expensive Furniture?

All said and done, the thousand dollar question you’d like to ask me here is this one. Try going through these prelimnary checks to ensure the quality of the furniture you are intending to buy.


We, at Duraster advise our clients to double check the type of wood that is used in the furniture. Does the “finish” look glowing and smooth or it appears shiny, painted and uneven ? Look underneath tables and chairs. Try to tap the surfaces to ensure that its not thin veneer. Check the weight. A solid wood piece will definitely be heavier. If the furniture has been put together using traditional joinery methods like dovetailing, check the joints. Look for solid wood like Sheesham or Indian Rosewood teak and oak for your prospective long run furniture pieces.
