We thought that the expensive leather construction was the way to go.
On the left seat of the sofa, the thread wasn't pulled as tight as on the right seat.This resulted in the thread starting to loosen in the seam.
When we spoke to the staff at the store where purchased they said we could have a technician check it for a minimum $60 and $90 per hour.
By no means deal with this company! Costco carries good similar items and a far superior warranty.
Sam Levitz also has a much better value.We were warned by two others but went ahead thinking "more expensive=better product"..
