Thread: What is the Best Made Upholstered Sofa

    Default What is the Best Made Upholstered Sofa

    Looking for a sofa and chair. Have a 5 year old Century and the spring has gone under one seat already. Looking at Stickley & Hickory Chair also Huntington House. Can someone recommend a high quality well made brand?

    Your Century should be under warranty....is it not?

    Hickory Chair is definitely not what it was years ago. I wanted to carry that line for years and couldn't get a dealership back in the 80's. When they finally called me up and said I could have it (2001) they'd change the way they made it. Stickley is OK, Huntington House I have no experience with.

    Pretty hard to beat Hancock and Moore and their related companies for quality and building them right: Councill and Taylor King.

    The Century sofa no longer fits in our new house, thus the search for a new sofa. So you think I should reconsider Century?

    I was quoted $4600 on the Stickley sofa. About $1000 more than my budget. I did like the way it "sat". Nice depth. Same with the Hickory Chair.

    Thank you for your recommendations. Are there any sofas that are made in the US or are they all off shore?

    Price really depends on cover. There's a wide swing based on the material used on the piece. At $ 4,600 though, that should buy you a REALLY nice sofa with a top-drawer material. You can get a very nice sofa for much less than that.

    Most upholstery is still made in America, because the wait times are too long to do them overseas, what with the multitude of cover choices and trying to get them all in a container for shipment in a timely manner. The frames can be imported and likely are if they are ornately carved.

    Huntington House is a great line manufactured in Hickory, NC. I have a actually had a sofa and loveseat from their line for five years, and it still sits new. Taylor King is also a great line. They are pretty comparable in quality. Huntington House will probably have a few more fabric options, but it depends on the dealer you go to. Not all dealers carry their complete fabric line.
