Do y'all like to sit BEFORE you spin?

We're well into the day and age where everything you could ever want is available for purchase's mad convenient, but with regards to buying new furniture, esp. larger, more pricey pieces, like sofas...are y'all as eager to shell out before you test out? Do y'all just take the plunge, open the purse and then pray it shows up looking and feeling as amazing as it does online, knowing you can just return it, if not? Hmmmm, send me wise words...I'm struggling with this!!!
