All right I have a question or two for everybody. I am in the process of building a house and the ole lady and I cant agree on the furniture. I want leather and she doesnt. Any thoughts?? Also I want furniture that is gonna last for a long time since I have a 2year old. I dont want Ashley or Rooms To Go crap. I need some high quality furniture. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Leather is nice! Your in Florida so Im sure you have air as leather sucks when its hot and humid. Also you need to keep the leather conditioned just like any leather product for it to last. Not sure of a specific brand to go with though

Lets just say, generally with furniture, you get what you pay for!

Things to look for include solid wood construction/not overlays, dovetail joints/not staples/glue, all leather (although wear surfaces in leather and other non-wear(sides and back) vinyl is very cost effective and looks good.

Sometimes the heavier it is, also indicates quality


Hope some of that info helps...

Stay away from Ashley if you want quality. I worked there part time a couple years ago. Their couches are assembled in about 2 minutes start to finish. Not the best stuff

OK, young kids. Leather won't absorb......pee, poop, spilled milk, pewk, spaghetti-o's.
Shall I continue? Nothing quite as attractive as kool-aid stains on a nice couch.

I really like a big comfy couch that has some sort of fabric on it b/c you can curl up in it with your honey and watch some flicks... but then again you have to worry about your baby... Its cold up here and a cold leather couch is rather uninviting to my rear!
