    Re: Sofas for vertically challenged

    Thanks, Duane. The issue is that she thought the 36" Century was too shallow. And there are other, larger folks who use it, although she's the primary user.

    Re: Sofas for vertically challenged

    Got it. Thanks. Would you advise lowering the seat height by an inch for a woman who is 5'4" or not? I know an inch doesn't sound like much but am wondering if 20" at the crown/19" at the front edge...

    Re: Sofas for vertically challenged

    Duane,

    Thank you. I'm still unclear about the height issue. Under the "Select Your Base" section of the Cornerstone customization checklist options U, UB, WBN and WB all say "Lowers height 1"....

    Re: Sofas for vertically challenged

    Duane,

    I'm writing about the Century Cornerstone LTD 7600-2 3 cushion 92" sofa. I believe that the seat height is 21" at the crown of the seat cushion and approximately 20" at the front edge of...
  6. Re: Taylor King Custom Frame and Cushion Core Choices

    Got it. Thanks, Duane.

    I was reading through some old posts and saw that you were treated by Dr. Michael Choti. I exchanged several emails with him a few years ago on behalf of a friend. He's an...
  7. Re: Taylor King Custom Frame and Cushion Core Choices

    Duane,

    1. Does Taylor King's website include all of their available fabrics?

    For example, if I want a performance fabric, does the website...
  8. Re: Stickley Furniture prices are confusing me, how to budget?

    I would if I could! Apologies for asking a question you really can't answer.

    I'm going to obtain a quote from you on a Taylor King Portfolio sofa. Is Century Cornerstone's build your...
  9. Re: Stickley Furniture prices are confusing me, how to budget?

    I was wrong. I just spoke with Stickley. The price they quoted me is 30% off suggested retail plus an additional 10% off. So the question now becomes: how does a Stickley 100 Series sofa compare to a...
  10. Re: Stickley Furniture prices are confusing me, how to budget?

    I recently got quoted 10% off list price/MSRP for a Stickley 100 Series 85" upholstered sofa. The fabric is 100% polyester and is not a performance fabric. I'm not in the business of telling...
  11. Re: Taylor King Custom Frame and Cushion Core Choices

    Duane,

    1. What are the inside widths for the Taylor Made Standard 88" and 92" three cushion sofas (assuming track arm with square cushion)?

    2. If the track arm with square cushion is selected...
  12. Re: Taylor King Portfolio Fabric List Update?

    1. Would a sofa with those dimensions feel cramped for someone who is 5'10"? If so, would you suggest a different set of dimensions that would fit someone who is 5'4" but also someone who is 5'10"?

  13. Re: Taylor King Portfolio Fabric List Update?

    Btw, there are other people who use the sofa as well (ranging from a 5'10", 145 lb. guy to a 6', 210 lb guy), but the primary user is a 5'4" woman. Thanks.
  14. Re: Taylor King Portfolio Fabric List Update?

    Nice to see that I'm not the only night owl :-)

    Did you post elsewhere on the forum that a sofa seat height for someone who is 5'4" or below should ideally be 17"-18"? If so, would the TK seat...
  15. Re: Taylor King Portfolio Fabric List Update?

    Duane,

    I visited a Taylor King dealer recently to look at sofas. The store also sells Sherrill and Temple. They were really pushing Temple and said that all 3 brands are of similar construction...

    Ha! 2176 is right around the corner from a cosmological and even geological perspective!

    I spoke with a furniture appraiser about 18 months ago. He told me "I don't care if someone paid $20,000...

    Re: Kitchen chairs

    I had the same concern when I read that. What further investigation would you suggest? Is it as simple as asking the company (or the dealer) why they do that? Thanks, Duane.

    Duane,

    What do you think of the chair below in terms of build quality, design, value and manufacturer reputation (if you've heard of the company)? The price range is $575-600 per chair.

    Do you have any opinion about Pompanoosuc Mills (if you're familiar with them)? Specifically, I saw these chairs on "sale" (30% off MSRP) for $750 each:

    Are there any wood dining & kitchen chair makers whose work you respect? Not looking for custom work due to price, but good-very good build quality. If I recall correctly, you stopped...
