You don’t need us to tell you how expensive furniture can be – or how quickly it can look the worse for wear after it’s been bashed and battered for a few months by toddlers and pets.
But instead of shelling out for brand new items, why not invest in some pre-loved furniture from the likes of the British Heart Foundation? These types of outlets often have stylish, nearly-new suites for bargain prices and the proceeds go to charity – everyone’s a winner!
