Incorrectly Scaling Furniture
“More and more these days people are buying things straight off the internet. They don’t see them in person so they don’t understand how it’s going to fit in the space,” says Allison Petty, design director at Hyphen & Co.

“Before any major purchase, try to either see the piece first or measure it out in your space! Don’t forget the vertical as well as the horizontal, that high back chair isn’t going to look right in a room with low ceilings."
