Hi Fellow Nesters!
The base of a room is super important and I know we all desperately want to get it right and put the dollars in the correct category.
Upholstery items: A new, lower grade sofa can easily be purchased from many retailers (local or online) for under $1000. The construction, fabric power, cushion make-up and materials, if utilized for normal wear and tear, may last for 2-3 years. Mass production with inexpensive materials simply show earlier signs of age. A higher end, USA made sofa, that is 8-way hand tied with quality materials and cushion construction, if experiencing normal wear and tear, will easily last up to ten years. I recently worked on a project with a lovely lady who's had the same sofa for 40 years; USA made, reputable company, impeccable construction. She loves the frame and has chosen to recover the same sofa several times over the years, instead of purchasing new!
