$4600 for a Sectional am I crazy?

I love this sectional from Arhaus furniture. Do you think it is worth $4600? Any suggestions for something similar at a better price?

I'm not familiar with Arhaus but the price seems steep for something that I've seen copied in all price ranges. If I spend a lot of money on something that I want, I don't want it to be available everywhere I look. I think price itself is hard to judge as I don't know if you're using a microfiber as I believe is shown or something more expensive and unusual. I'd check with some NC manufacturers for pricing on the item before I'd pay that at a local store if you haven't done so already. Try Boyle's or some of the others at Hickory Furniture Mart.

this looks like a Rowe sectional

You can probably buy it discounted for half.

Yes that is crazy! Arhaus is decent but not $4600 for a sectional decent. Check out Rowe as the previous poster mentioned or Lee Industries at Lee Industries dot com. Lee's made in the usa, 8-way hand tied and will still run less. Many folks here have orded Lee Industries stuff from Alan Ferguson in Hickory NC. They also carry it at Crate and Barrel, though someone mentioned that the CB stuff is not 8 way hand tied, you can contact lee and find out. Rowe and Lee Industries are good middle of the road (probably as good or better than Arhaus). Depending upon where your from, you can also check room and board dot com.

We spent about that much in 2002 on an Ethan Allan curved sectional (3 piece) that seats 4-8 depending on how cozy you want to be. I regret it now; after only two years, each section started sagging, and between sections (the only places that don't sink) is very uncomfortable. Now it's been 6 1/2 years; hasn't gotten any worse but it's certainly not getting better. A couple Cracker Barrel oak "pews" are starting to look good to me after this sagging problem.

The link provided is very similar in appearance and price to what we got although we had no option for a sleeper sofa.

Others seem to think $4600 is expensive; I suppose that depends on the fabric as well as cost of construction. You have to "guestimate" longevity vs. cost of replacement or reupholstering. I thought going with Ethan Allen justified the cost, but it certainly did not in our case.

I have that sectional! We love the dimensions on it. I just wish my fabric was still available. We recently moved and it does not fit in our new space as well as it did in the last house. I paid a little under 4,000 about 3 years ago. Arhaus is local up here and they have a great reputation. I wouldn't have any worries about quality. After 3 years we have no complaints!

It better come with the rest of the living room furnishings for that price!

Update-I purchased this sectional in a different configuration. It arrived on Saturday and I have no regrets. I love it and so does my dh who is very hard to please. It is super comfy and looks great in our family room.

Uh oh...I'm about to spend that much (actually a little more) on my sectional which is even smaller. Y'all are making me think I'm crazy. We are getting a Stanford sofa. After sitting on hundreds of pieces of furniture throughout North Carolina and beyond, we found nothing which compared. But with their regular sofa prices hovering around $3000 (about $7-8000 full retail), I really didn't think that $5000 for the sectional was out of line. By the way I was not getting a fancy grade of fabric, but it's a heck of a lot higher quality than what's shown on most other sofas.
