My husband and I are in the market for a new sofa (or loveseat), and I can't seem to find anything decent for my budget. The maximum price I'm willing to pay is around $900 for one piece, and I'm only interested in kiln-dried hardwood frames, and fabric not leather.

I can't afford anything "great" like Drexel Heritage, etc, but is there anything that is quality yet still affordable? I went to the La-Z-Boy gallery today, loved one sofa (kiln-dried hardwood frame), but I truly question their quality...there are a lot of negative reviews online (although the only reviews I can find are on their reclining furniture, which I don't want).

Any tips or suggestions? :)

When we were shopping for furniture we had the hardest time too as I don't like leather and didn't want microfiber but strictly cotton/twill/canvas, etc. We got lucky going to some smaller more local furniture shops (instead of big name stores) and were able to find just what we were looking for. So, I guess that's what I would try.

My parents had some La-Z-Boy furniture and every time you moved the couch to vacuum, there were nuts and bolts on the floor (it was a recliner sofa and chair). :blink:

We have Lane and Broyhill furniture. I like it, but the one thing that bothers me is the arms of the chairs. It seems after a while, and the constant leaning on them, the padding gives way and you can feel the edges of the wood. However, if I were to ever replace my furniture, I would still go with them.

Hope that helps.

I bought a club chair from JC Penny on line shortly before Christmas last year. It was a closeout and a great price. The on-line reviews for it were wonderful. A similar, but slightly more expensive, set, also has great reviews.

The chair I got certainly has been worth the price. I got two slipcovers, one in print, the other in a solid color, and they fit very snugly for a very tailored look.

I think it is certainly worth checking out!

A few years ago, I decided to go with Pottery Barn and decided to go with the ones that have fitted slip covers so that I could take them off and throw them in the washer/dryer. It has been a life saver with the dogs.

I have always, always bought beautiful furniture here in NC and shopped for great deals. Now, some of our great people (furniture mfgs) have closed their mfg company and outlets and gone overseas. It just breaks your heart. Around 8 years ago, I bought my daughter a 10,000.00 sectional Thomasville sofa for a little over 3,000.00 when she bought her first house. I got it at the outlet store and now it is closed down. Everyone use to come to me from out of state to take them for great furniture values and now it seems to have dried up. I did manage to get a Bob Timberlake bedside table from World of Bob Timberlake for 900.00 and it has gone up to almost 2,000.00 per table last year. I ordered two for my bedroom. I really think that if you put money into something good, it will last you a lifetime. Thank goodness, I bought all my furnture years ago at exceptional prices.....Today, it is untouchable. Use to be, you could get online to order furniture from NC but I have heard there are some scammers out there from our state. Good luck in your furniture search, try to look for sales at better prices but good quality construction like you want~~~:chili:

Thank you all for the suggestions, so far. I am even more frustrated right now because I have looked at quite a few stores and there is NOTHING decent (other than the $3,000 sofas I want but can't afford)!

The La-Z-Boy stationary sofa seems like the best bet so far, but I have never heard anything GOOD about them honoring their "limited lifetime warranty". I don't want to get scammed by them.

I am just really having a hard time finding a middle-of-the-line sofa that I can physically look at. I've found lots of fairly nice ones online, but no one in town carries them. :(
