But will it sufficiently stand the "test of time" and use? Example: After six or eight months of use does it develops a slight "wiggle" or is the finishing starting to wear off in some spots?

The indirect cost of furniture may include a decrease in productivity and the opposite– a measurable increase in productivity when people are seated in properly designed furniture.
