Please help me buy a new slipcover sofa...

I am at a loss here! Two years ago we bought the Potomac sofa and chair from C&B. The bottom cushions are fine but the back cushions are totally crunched. You literally can't lean back on them, they sag lower than the hard back of the sofa. They were never the most comfortable sofas, but we were sick of looking and they weren't terribly expensive...and they looked good. I need recommendations for good slip covered sofas. They don't have to be heirloom quality, but I don't mind dry-cleaning and/or replacing the covers if the bones of the sofa are good. I did a search and Lee Industries came up...but their website indicates that Crate and Barrel is a retailer for them :( I'm very confused. I don't need this sofa to be the cheapest. I want it to hold up! Especially the cushions. I would love your advice.

Broyhill makes two lines of sofas that you can order slipcovers for. They got a high rating in Consumer Reports. I just bought one and love it, but cant speak for how it will hold up over time, except for what CR says.
