Always consider the condition of free furniture before you agree to take it. You don't want a couch that is saggy. Though you are reluctant to spend cash, you may find a used sofa more trouble than a new one, in the long run. Environmentally friendly furniture is quite popular today. However, make sure they are who they say they are. To simplify this process, ask whether the furniture is certified by Oeko Tek or FSC. The answer to this question will help you determine whether the piece is actually a good one for this particular movement.
