Here's some helpful tips from your BBB on Furniture:
If you are considering buying furniture, BBB suggests that you determine in advance what your space limitations are, what your budget will allow, and specifically how the furniture will be used before you start looking. Once you have made these decisions, shop and compare companies for price, quality, service and credit terms, if you are buying on time. Always read all the tag and label information provided by the seller and manufacturer to determine how the furniture is constructed and the care and cleaning instructions of the furniture.
Before you sign a contract, make sure it contains an accurate description of the items to be purchased and determine in advance what the company's refund policy is and what the warranty does and does not cover.
