$6,000 Ethan Allen vs. $10,000 Henredon
After reading all the Ethan Allen stories I am convinced that it is not the best quality furniture. However, the family room furniture (sofa, loveseat, chair and ottomon) is going to cost $4,000 more if I go with Henredon. I have 2 small children so the furniture will get a lot of wear in the family room.
I am torn. It is the Hyde sofa set (dont know if it is made in the US. Doesnt say on the web if it is 8 way hand tied etc. I guess if it lasts 5-7 yrs I can move it to the basement and then buy higher quality stuff then. I cant fly to North Carolina to buy cheaper good quality furniture. I am in New York metro area and dont know about the quality of any other furniture stores.
Thanks for any advice.
