I am looking for a new sofa and am bewildered by upholstery. What do people look for in a sofa? Prices range from $500 to $5,000 in the stores. I found a Rowe sofa that I liked for $800 with really cool fabric choices but then I checked reviews on line that noted the cushions started to deteriorate after 3 years. Are the $3k models really that much better? Also, I have a hand me down boring beige sofa now. I am thinking about something with more pow but would you get tired of that pretty quickly?
