Leatthercraft sofa in catalin copper, hickory chair

We have literally been looking for new family room furniture for a decade in ebbs and flows; finally made a decision to purchase a Leathercraft couch 2670 in catalina copper, we are also considering purchasing chairs from Hickory chair. Intially,this am, we liked the Hickory Chair couch we saw in the blue herringbone fabric, and accompanying chairs, and almost purchased it UNTIL the designer suggested leather. We have been stuck in a battle between leather and fabric for years, and when he suggested the Hancock Moore city sofa, it returned us to a Leathercraft sofa ( 2670) which we have considered off and on for the last year. Liked the H&M city sofa, but feel it is too big for our space, and for us, the LC was more comfortable, We will be going back to meet with the designer at the previous store, it was not our intention to purchase the LC sofa today, but size wise, it was a better choice for the room than the HCM.
I feel a little uncomfortable going back, now that we have ordered the other sofa, as I would have gone with anything that worked from this designer, but the first thing my husband said was after he suggested the City Sofa was let's compare it to the size of the Leathercraft.

So ultimately, since our decisions today have narrowed remaining options, is dependent upon quality for the chairs from Hickory Chair? My understanding is that Hickory chair remains a reliable source????

I am thinking of a Leathercraft sofa as well. I loved the 2670 but sadly my room is really narrow and it would look too big. going down a size to 929-00. are you happy with your sofa? it is hard here in NY to find a store that sells good furniture and I would love input from someone that has one. HCM I love but their sofas are really tall and deep...

You definitely want to stay away from Catalin. My chair came and I keep it away from any guests that may have children and definitely animals the leather is easy torn so you have to protect my husband is using it for an office chair. We are going shopping in the next few weeks but will not think of Leathercraft to bad quality!!!!!!
