Why Atlanta Furniture
Showrooms are More Important than Websites

Atlanta furniture showrooms are more important than furniture websites when you are buying furniture, and here's why. First, nobody looking for high quality furniture would ever consider purchasing it online.  To purchase a high-ticket item such as furniture without seeing it and touching it would be extreme foolishness. 

The majority of respected American furniture manufacturers sell through dealers. Most of them have websites which they use to display their company, their craft and their products, but you will not find a checkout - or even a price. That is left to their dealers.

Even dealers such as Patterson Furniture have websites, but do not sell products from them. Again, the websites and blogs are used to present the products and impart information about them, much as we are doing here.  You will not find any checkout on the Patterson Furniture website - we leave these to our Atlanta furniture showrooms in Lilburn and Roswell. Why is this?

Furniture Should be Used Before Buying

The reasons are simple and easily understood by those with a love for well crafted furniture. Beautiful hand-crafted furniture should be enjoyed, and should be touched and used before making a decision to purchase it.  Would you buy a bed without lying on it?  Likely not!

Then why buy a sofa without sitting on it? Why buy a dining table and chairs without sitting on the chairs at the table.  You will then know if the respective heights suit you. Perhaps the chairs are too high or too low for the height of the table. Maybe you are small, and the whole thing is too high for you.

It doesn't matter what the problem might be.  The point is that there might be a problem that you can neither envisage nor spot from a photograph on a web page. It's not the problem that's the problem; it's not actually seeing the furniture and trying it out that's the problem.  You can't try out any furniture on a website, but you can in a showroom.

Appreciating the Beauty and Smell of American Furniture

That's not the only reason why Atlanta furniture showrooms are more important than furniture websites. In fact, perhaps not even the main reason. That would likely be the fact that you cannot appreciate the sheer beauty of well made furniture from a photograph. You cannot feel the warmth of the silky smooth wood, and neither can you smell it.

Genuine wood has a smell that no laminate can ever equal, and the same is true of genuine leather. Walk into a Patterson Furniture showroom in Lilburn or Roswell, Atlanta, take a deep breathe through your nose and you will know exactly what I mean. Who could ever deny themselves that sheer pleasure just to save them leaving their home to buy furniture!

Sure, you can buy furniture online if you want, but why should you want to? What benefits do you get other than not having to stand up and take the trouble to travel to your nearest furniture store?  None!

Atlanta Furniture Showrooms Offer Specialist Knowledge

There is yet a third benefit, and like the first, a practical one. Assistants, such as those in Patterson Furniture showrooms, are very knowledgeable about the products they sell. They can provide you with useful information on the type of furniture most suited to your personal needs. They understand the product ranges of Stickley, Sherrill, Southwood, Nichols and Stone, Canal Dover, Mobel, Valley View and all the other American furniture companies that Patterson deal with.

How do the products of all these companies compare with each other, and which would be best for you? Use the websites of all these and you would be lost. It would take so much time to check them all out - not to mention the other dozen or more that you will find in Patterson's showrooms - that you would be quicker just traveling to Lilburn or Roswell and find out from the assistants. 

Patterson furniture offers a wide range of the products offered by over 20 different American furniture and accessory companies. Our assistants are aware of the range of products we have available to sell to you, our customer. That is the final reason why Atlanta furniture showrooms are more important than websites.
