You're looking for furniture to fill the home you have today, but it would be shortsighted not to consider how your life—and living space—may change in the next several years. If, for example, you're considering a move within the next five years, think about how your square footage might shrink or expand, how you'll use the space, and where your furniture would go. An eye toward the future is also wise when you're shopping for "forever" pieces like sofas and dining tables. Be especially wary of trends. This year's "it" design may be tomorrow's 1970s avocado green, so ask yourself if you're ready to commit to a risky style for the next decade. In short, shop with both the present and future in mind.
