Good places to buy a sectional sofa



The girlfriend and I are looking to buy a sectional sofa for our house. I am not an experienced furniture buyer - most stuff I've had in the past has been given to me.

Where should we start looking for one of these things? We are not rich, so some of the really expensive stores are out.

is there a Home Furniture in BR? I think there is one in Laffy. You can get a nice leather sectional from $1000 and up.

I would advise against a sectional. The problem is there is no way to re-arrange it.

re: Good places to buy a sectional sofa


Rooms to go does not have that good of quality. Numerous people i have talked to have had problems including myself. I bought a sectional that broke once and had to have the leather repaired twice. Although the price was good, i was just pissed off at the fact that i spent a good amount of money for something that broke within a few weeks. The repair man, when he came to fix the wood frame even mentioned that this was not built the way it should've been built.

Also the cushions didn't hold up for the year i had it.

yes there is but i lost all hope in them when the guy told me that i had to take the ugly arse pillows with it because it was a set and it came off the boat that way

Well, we are both in favor of getting one at this point. If I changed my tune at this point, it woul dcause unnecessary strife. I need to decide when to pick my battles.

No beer at the moment - the moving stuff has consumed all my time.

Only sectionals I like are from Bassett. Life time warranty on frames and unlimited customization options. 5 year fabric warranty too!

re: Good places to buy a sectional sofa


just try to get one that you can adjust the chaise part to the left or right. I had a sectional and then switched to traditional sofa/loveseat/chair and now i want another sectional, but a smaller one

re: Good places to buy a sectional sofa


Haverty's and Ashleys are the two best bets for moderate (but not cheap, esp Ashleys) prices and quality stuff.

Rooms to go is cheaper, but the quality is much lower. Seems like 1/3rd of people who buy from Rooms to Go have issues with the furniture.

Oh yeah, I would put City Furniture as above Rooms to Go in quality and about the same in price. Maybe the best compromise if there is one in BR.

re: Good places to buy a sectional sofa


I bought mine at Ashley four years ago.
It has no arm rests between the ends and has a sofa sleeper on one end and a reclining seat on the other. It is the size of two full size sofas with a wedge in the middle. Got the sectional and matching recliner for $1800. Dark chocolate leather.
