nr. 62nd St.

Not worth the $3500. I spent in '93.

  • No, I would not go back!

Uncomfortable mattresses and weak frames is right! I have the camel back sofa that they still make. The problem...the sofa bed is too low and it caused the upholstery on the front (that would be behind your knees) to wear down to the padding then the wood that is inside and it gets wider all the time, along the length of the front. THEIR SOLUTION? The sofa bed mechanism needs to be raised! And it costs a lot and they admit it is a design flaw! For what I paid they should come and do it for free. Not only that I have to have the whole thing recovered because the fabric won't match over this much time. It is not the quality classic sofa my mother bought in the 70's and still owns. They make a big talk of "quality" in the showroom. If you want to spend a lot of money on a piece you will enjoy over time I suggest you go elsewhere.
