Do you have to add braces to hold weight of someone sitting on it?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Of course, you do have to think about function too. You want to find furniture for your home that is chic but affordable. Vintage stores, IKEA and yard sales are great places to look for really simple furniture that you can enjoy for a time and then pass on to someone else without experiencing any sense of loss.
