Your couch might feel most comfortable when you sit in a certain spot; your coffee table might sometimes be just what you need when you feel like putting your feet up; your office chair is always placed in the same position, at the same height, after all, you need to feel comfortable when working.
Unfortunately, these habits might seem good to you but they are bad for your furniture. “You should look around and under furniture, check stability and joinery, and look for any damage,” he said. “The sooner you catch a problem, the better chance you have at fixing it. Damage undetected only gets more severe with time.” Christophe Pourny, author of “The Furniture Bible”. And if you want to prolong the lifespan of your furniture, change how you use it every once in a while. The same goes for your pets.
