Berkline reclining sofas?

lachaseNovember 22, 2009

Does anyone know about how these are constructed? I can't find any information about them, even emailed their company because no information was listed on their company web page. It makes me suspect poor quality when they don't even address construction of their furniture. Has anyone had experience with this company's reclining sofas?

We bought one a few years ago and it looked great for about a year. Then the cushions started sinking and before it hit 3 years, the frame on one side completely broke. The piece of the frame that broke was basically plywood. I won't ever buy this brand again and have learned the hardway to really do your research especially before buying sofas.

I was afraid you were going to say that. I've been looking and looking but I think it is making me more confused the more I look. I really liked a Flexsteel latitudes sofa but then read it was made in China and am afraid to buy fearing it will be shoddy. I really don't want to go over about @1500 for one, so I'm not sure I can find anything well built in that range. I'd be glad to know suggestions if anyone has ideas.

I don't have their sofas, but I do have their theatre chairs configured into love seats.

They seem to be well made and were more comfortable then other chairs we auditioned at many other big box stores.

But having said that, you really have to try and see which chairs/sofas fit you, and how comfortable they might be for you (everyone is different).

You may indeed have to spend more money to get really decent furniture.
