    Have they held up really good?

    I look at furniture as kind of disposable, at least in my family. I have 2 hundred pound dogs and a 375 pound husband. We are hard on stuff! I would rather buy a cheaper set now, knowing we might need to replace it in 5 years, than buy a $5000K set and possibly end up in the same situation of needing to get new stuff.
    Erin that is kinda how I feel.

      i think you pay for what you get and these companies work best for a shorter term solution.

            We recently furnished our newly renovated basement, after looking and discussing the ashley line with a local dealer - it came to my attention that much of their ''leather'' furniture is actually a product called DURAPELLA®, DURAPLUSHâ„¢, and DURABLENDâ„¢ ... then the sales person showed us what a pet (claws and nails) can do to this DURABOND - it looked terrible. Because few of their "leather" pieces are actually leather they rip and tear really easily... the sales lady actually told us that... and.. it is not repairable -- where leather is.

            We ended up with Cindy Crawford leather furniture from the Brick... it's gorgeous... a little more $, but in this case it is a definate case of you get what you pay for!
