@UpstateCait:  My old roommate has that fake leather thingy. It’s pretty awesome. The only thing is she ends up draping blankets over parts her cat jumps up on so he doesn’t clas the crap out of it! 

Big Lots has some great options! Fiance and I have actually been eyeing a couple of pieces.

My bro’s furniture is from BL. His couch and recliner survived several moves and several years. My IKEA furniture didn’t last as long as his BL stuff.

@UpstateCait:   Get it!  Get it!  Simmons is good quality and you’re right – you’ll pay 2X as much at a “real furniture” store.

@UpstateCait:  It will be OK if you want to get on average 3-5 years out of it. Some people are OK with replacing furniture that often, especially if they have limited space and are moving around a lot.

I’d read a ton of reviews about it first, as many people say its good for an area not getting much use, but falls apart pretty quickly if its your main furniture and gets daily use.

We were going to buy a sectional there similar to the one you posted, but for our beach house. For weekend use it would probably be perfect, and you can’t beat the price!

UpstateCait:  We got married in May and bought our couch set in June with the wedding money, and we love it!! Nothing  is wearing out or sinking and it’s so comfortable! It’s the Ashley Furniture brand.

We bought a TV stand from Big Lots and love it. It’s so heavy and sturdy. I think you just need to look at the quality of the exact peice.

My husband and I bought our bedframe set from BL. Footboard, headboard, siderails, etc. It’s been about a year now and we love it. It’s beautiful, heavy dark cherry wood. Very elegant and sturdy. We paid only $299. It’s amazing what other stores were charging at the time. It’s Ashley like the rest of our bedroom furniture which was mine for the past 9 years. GREAT QUALITY! We couldn’t be happier!! We’re getting a sectional and patio furniture from there this week. Simmons sectional. We can’t wait!

I looked once when I was single and saw decent stuff. Only thing I’d recommend is try to stay away from a couch that cushions don’t come off of. They tend to wear out and sink in fast. Kind of like a bed you can’t flip, then if it stains, it will always show. Instead I went to a local high end furniture store and bought something from their discount area of cancelled orders and floor models and got a killer deal for better quality.

……? Bumping a years old thread with a copy/pasted answer from the first page? 

This is bizarre.
