About 6 months ago I embarked on this journey and what I found out is people don’t often write reviews when they like the furniture, only when they don’t.

I would recommend Art Van, but I think they went out of business.  We have a set for our second home and I really like it.  I would Ashley Furniture or Macy’s.

I did find that a lot of companies sell the same or similar pieces.  Poly & Bark, All Modern, similar companies that sell through Wayfair….just different levels of quality during production.

Production and shipping takes about 14-16 weeks though, so prepare yourself for that!

We ended up buying our couch from West Elm, but it was pretty pricey, but we only needed a couch, so we were able to justify it.

We got our sectional from Macy’s and are happy with it.   It was the Radley for like 1700 I think.

I bought a sectional from Costco and it has held up really well. It has a “stain resistant” coating (whatever that means). But my friend spilled a glass of red wine on it, and it all came out (unlike my friend who spilled a beer on my dining chair and there is still a ring from the water mark).

I love the look of Joybird stuff but as pp said everything seems to have bad reviews lol.

I’d go leather all the way with pets though.

I got my couch from IKEA! People love to hate on IKEA furniture, but I’ve had my couch for going on 4 years now and it’s still in fantastic condition. It’s super comfy and sturdy too (my fiancé’s dad, when he was helping us move it, said it’s one of the most solid pieces of furniture he’s ever seen)! I have several other pieces of IKEA furniture and they’re all in great shape after years of use.

@sharpshooter:  Loved the Joybird images when I was looking for a stylish sofa bed for our home office. Finally just shelved it for a while, but have been considering West Elm. What type of upholstry, how is it holding up?

@beethree:  I got weston leather.  It’s beautiful, but I wouldn’t recommend this specific leather with pets.  Scratches too easy.

I do love the couch, but we’ve only had it 4 months, so I can’t talk about durability.

IKEA is actually a great option price wise.

I would try West Elm and see if you can get a couch that has a base that is all one piece. This really does make a huge difference with comfort. I would also look on Facebook Marketplace as there are always people selling couches that may have not been used much or you can put a cover over.

@edobbs87:  i suggest the company/brand Ashley furniture. I’m in Australia but their furniture is usually sold not under their name but by other smaller and larger independent furniture stores. I believe  that they do have stores and an online store in the USA. My couch is amazing and hasn’t suffered from the dreaded ass imprint and sag on the seat even after  3 years of use. The fabric is also good quality doesn’t pill or show dirt and cleans off with a baby  wipe when  I’ve  done an accidental coffee spill.  My dogs rub against it and lean on all the time to no ill effect. (They aren’t aIlowed on it)  My cat is  allowed to sit and they are known to do the  claw and stretch often and it hasn’t created any issues. I wouldn’t  say that Ashley  furniture is super cheap  but its a good cheap to middle road brand but I’ve been impressed with the quality.  I paid AU 2.2k for my sofa and arm chair.

@bluejellyfish:   I have  the besta and the hemnes from ikea and I  think they are great quality but I’ve never has luck with the  couches. Every one I’ve owned and everyone I know who has owned one always has the cusion zips break and the corners on the arm rests always lose their shape/ stuffing to the point that it just ends up as rough plywood that rubs holes through the covers. I’m not hard on furniture and I’m exceedingly careful and ive never worn through other  couches or broken cushion zips but 2 for 2 has put me off ikea couches.
