We don’t need to tell you about the brilliance of online shopping: Point, click, and presto! You’ve just furnished your entire house in a matter of minutes.
But for how easy online furniture shopping is, it’s equally easy to screw up. Badly.
Maybe you only skimmed the return policy. Or perhaps the color you thought was forest green is really more like lime. And don’t even get us started on the damaged pieces that showed up with the 6-foot entertainment center. It’s enough to push a sane person over the edge.
Looks — especially online — can be deceiving. Lighting, camera angles, and styling can render that chair a different piece of furniture altogether once it’s sitting in your living room.
