How does everyone feel about buying major upholstered furniture (sofas, chairs) without trying them out first? There are so many wonderful pieces online but I am very leery of making such a large purchase without sitting in them. Case in point - my mother needs a wing chair but she's not in any physical condition to go around trying them. How do you make this kind of decision?
Our first inclination would be to say to buy from a retailer whose furniture you know that at least you can go check out in a store. But maybe other people are braver than we are?
