Furniture retail software versus actual shopping

I digress from my research about furniture retail software as I imagine doing retail therapy by shopping for furnitures for our home. I'm in awe every time I go to large furniture stores. It's like going to an amusement park. A huge area the size of a soccer field filled with sofas, couches, tables, chairs, display units and everything furniture-related. It's not just the sheer number in display, it's the way they are neatly arranged, too. Living room displays next to dining room displays - it's like jumping from one house to another in just a few steps. Unfortunately, alongside the feeling of amazement I also get confused. It's not so much having a hard time deciding which, say, couch to get, but beside that couch is beautiful coffee table. And not far from that coffee table is an entertainment unit and so on. I start thinking to myself "gee, those would look great in my living room..". So what should have been a straightforward decision to buy just one piece of furniture becomes a struggle between need versus want over an entire showcase. Enough about that, it's time to go back to researching on specialised softwares.
