We have a Hickory Fry sofa that we bought 20 years ago. Are you familiar with that brand? I think it's out of biz now. We are wondering if it's worth it to have to recovered or buy a new sofa.

It would probably cost us about $900 to have it recovered.

Also, how does a cheap sofa break down? We were looking at a red microfiber sofa at Grand Furniture for $500. It's stylish and comfortable. The salesman said it would last 5 to7 years. Does the microfiber turn nubby quickly? does the frame break? What tends to break on these things?
