Review: Furniture From Home

If you're looking for furniture, be sure to check out furniturefromhome.com. It's a site that sells furniture exclusively online (I know, you wouldn't have guessed from the URL huh? ;). As is common with stores that only sell online their prices are relatively low compared to other online/offline companies. I've been looking for a new couch since recent since the one we have now is a couch straight from hell. We've been given it, so no complaining there, but it's just really uncomfortable.

So my first test is to see how easy I can find a couch for my budget. I see a search field at the top of the screen so I entered the word couch. A list of search results shows up. First thing I notice: no prices with each individual item and no way to sort it on price either. I like the way you can refine your search and it updates the results automatically as you click, that's a really nice feature. but I'd like to be able to see a little more product details on the list. This pretty much goes for the whole site: navigating is easy and the breadcrumbs make sure I don't get lost in the different categories/sub categories (although they don't seem to track my flow well all the time) but I'd like to see to see details on overview pages too like on the Home Office Furniture page, not just on the product page.

But that's one of the few things that I think could be improved. Overall the site looks very good. The classic look and clean design makes it pleasant on the eyes. If I want to be knit-picky I'd say that the LivePerson button on the product details page should be in the same style as the rest of the site but that's detail.

As for the content: they have a very broad selection, and as soon as I get a place with a bar I'd definitely think about getting a bar and counter stool from there. They have a pretty cool selection of those. Their Bedroom Furniture looks really nice too, too bad I can't have it all ;). Ah well, let's just start out with a couch..
