Ashley furniture Informative - Service tech with 13 years in line of Ashley furniture and other brands.
I have been in the furniture biss for over 13 years I have worked on all brands of furniture, just like cars, for example Chevrolet? it makes its cheap cars like a Chevy aveo which cost under $14,000 and a corvette that can cost over $65,000 all furniture companies have there lower end product and there high end products just like a car dealer??
now see what yo8u think about this I have a sofa and love seat that I bought 11 years ago brand new very cheaply built set!!i have 3 kids and 3 great danes but after 11 years it shows signs of wear but it appears it looks like maybe 2 years old!!! now remember this is a cheap set of furniture now I will no mention the name of the company well you know what I will their name is a-1 furniture yes it was cheap and still looks very good for 11 years old!! and I paid $300 for the set sofa and love seat!! can you believe that!! now what I don't understand is that a person can buy a low-end sofa and in 2 moths it looks like crap!! something is wrong there!! even if it was blow up furniture it would last longer than that!!
but I see this all the time people claiming its cheaply built well it might be, but you only had for 2 months, i go out to look at it and it has candy, milk, coke and other stuff all over it, well that tells you everything, its abused!!
i had a couple that bought a lower end sofa and love they had it for 6 years basically since our store opened, they called because of a problem with it, so I go out to look at I get to the house and these people were big people!! both of them probably about 800lbs together!!I'm thinking well I'm sure the cushion's are smashed ?? well I walk in and sofa and love seat look like new!!!!! and this is a lower end set from Ashley!! I asked the mans when did you buy it, he said back in 06!! I said man it still looks new!! he said yes it does with a big smile on his face, and then he said yeah we sleep on it and sue it every day!! I said I'm glade you love it he said this is the best furniture he has every had!!
well I asked him what the problem was, he said I hears I pop one day when I sat on the loveseat, i said ok I will look at it?? so I flipped it upside down to check it, well I found a TV remote stuck in it!! we all started laughing!!
i said how doe you keep your sofa and love so clean he said well we take care of it!!!
so you see you can buy something cheap or low-end the key is to take care of it!!
I've seen very expensive furniture trashed in less than 6 moths!!
I've seen low-end furniture last forever!!!
do you get my point???
so if you buy low-end or high-end !! it last the same as long as you take care of it and not abuse it, like trashing it, jumping on it, catching it on fire !! yes I have had 4 of those !! dogs and cat attack!! you name it I've seen it all!!
take care of your furniture!!
