You might not have pews, you might have more office spaces or you might be buying more comfortable furniture.
Furniture is changing for communities of faith!
1. Used Furniture
Furniture is like cars, as soon as you drive it off of the lot its value is significantly decreased. Consider this when purchasing new furniture, but also allow this to consider checking out thrift stores or Kijiji or other used furniture options. Especially the older furniture can be quite durable as it was made out of solid wood.
2. Go to the Showroom!
You definitely want to sit in anything that you will be using for a long period of time. Sit in the couches or chairs at the showroom or store before you order them (where possible).
