Need a little advice from you bees!
I have been holding off on buying new living room furniture while the hubs is in school so we have covered our atrocities with slipcovers. However, I noticed today that our couch has broken down so badly, it is uncomfortable to sit on! I bought the couch and love seat from Rooms to Go about 8 years ago but they have only had about 3 years of actual heavy use in that time so I am not pleased with the quality here.
What brands do you guys suggest for quality and affordability?

Our couch is from LaZBoy. It has held up well so far, but it was expensive!

Quality furniture is usually pretty expensive. I second the vote for la-z-boy. If you can go to a higher price range then Ethan Allen Is my favorite.

If you are willing to be patient you can get amazing deals on Craigslist. That’s how we bought our couch – a fancy brand (I forget which, but similar to Ethan Allen) that was barely used at a huge discount. It just took a few weeks of waiting to find the right one.

I LOVE craigslist to be honest. You can find some really nice quality (aka not fake wood shit like evrything is these days for a great price.
I paid $800 for a Craftmaster sofa and it’s worse than anything I got secondhand from craigslist.
