Cheap couches don’t last – I’ve been down that road.

If you buy a kiln dried hardwood frame couch (like at Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, CB2, many of them at West Elm, etc) the couch will last so long that you can reupholster it instead of replace it – much cheaper.

We have the Piazza sofa from CB2 (about $1200) and it is amazing – had it over a year and it’s like new!

If you are ordering online, you want to make sure you get free shipping, or that can cost more than the sofa.

Ikea is a good source for inexpensive furniture. Just beware of their particle board stuff. It doesn’t last.

Have you tried HomeGoods or TJMaxx?

@crayfish:  Have you reupholstered one lately? I looked into it and it was really expensive. The same cost of a reall good quality couch. 

Check your local craigslist. You can find new couches from people who only had them a short time and have to move etc. Good quality couches for cheap. You can easily then steam clean them.

Ethan Allen, Hickory Chair, and Sherrill are several of the brands that are well made.

I’m in love with the Cameron Sofa (in leather, of course) from Crate & Barrel. But we’re going to wait til after we stop moving so often, probably after we buy a house. Right now we have an Ikea Karlstad sofa that we got off Craigslist. It’s not bad, especially since we paid less than $300 for it.

Here’s the C&B beauty. The leather is so soft. I normally hate leather but love this sofa. http://www.crateandbarrel.com/cameron-leather-sofa/s247246
