Buying advice -- American Leather/Lee
The forums here have really helped me focus on brands of sectional sofas that would work in our house. If we can find a decent price, we'll go with American Leather. Lee is our backup.
We live in Ohio -- nowhere near American Leather's Texas outlet, or the NC furniture discounters. And because we're caring for elderly parents in our home right now, we can't travel for awhile.
a)Does anyone have any suggestions on price negotiations? I'd like some base line pricing before I start negotiating (like with a new car), so I have a target in mind. I hate going in blind.
b)Does American Leather (and/or Lee) dictate when dealers have sales...or are the sales launched by furniture store owners themselves?
c)Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) with online shopping at sectionalsofascentral.com? Prices online are for fabric, not leather. And the company says on its website it can no longer sell American Leather to people outside of California after mid-June.
If anyone has stumbled across any great deals on other well-made sectionals lately, please let me know. We're looking for a mid/smallish sectional (maybe a couch with chaise) in distressed leather.
