Image via Bryght.com.We shop online for books, clothes, groceries, even eyeglasses. What we don’t shop for much is furniture. By some estimates, only about three percent of furniture purchases are currently made online. When you think about it, it makes sense. Shopping for furniture is a singularly tactile experience. We want to feel the fabric or the finish, sit in the chair or the sofa.
