bernhardt franco sofa?

mellyc123July 27, 2012

I am thinking of getting this sofa, a matching chair and ottoman.

Can anyone tell me if they love/hate the way the back cushion is the back of the sofa? I have never owned one like this.

What about the quality? It will be in a family room and I am considering leather. The fabric as shown (which I also like ) is 1300.00 so I am concerned it will not hold up well to kids and pets.

I would like it to last 5 years.

Thank You

I like the single row of tufting. I don't like the way the padding stops and you have the frame lip at the top. Is there some advantage that I do not see? It seems gratuitous. A tight back sofa looks tapered and tidy already, that hard edge isn't necesary.

I really like the style of the sofa you have choscn.

If it's quality you are concerned about, don't be. I have 2 chairs we purchased from Bernhardt last year. The quality is great, they were made in the US, and they're extremely comfortable. I think that $1300 is very reasonable.

My only suggestion is to pick a chair and ottoman that is different from the sofa but works for interest.
