The Bay's DISTINCTLY HOME Sofas

Hi RFD,

I'd like to poll this community to get their opinion on The Bay's sofa brand called "Distinctly Home". Looking for a good value sofa for $1000. Here is an example of a "mid-level" sofa that I'm interested in and price seems to be right given it's Bay Day sale => http://www.thebay.com/webapp/wcs/stores ... er-ii-sofa.

I went to the Bay and actually sat on it and it seems very comfortable. And reviewing the sofa specifications, it seems to meet the "quality" requirements of a sofa:

-Made in Canada [specifically Quebec as per the Sofa representative]
-Frame built of solid hardwood
-Seat features no-sag springs and high-density (1.9lbs) foam cushions that are polyester wrapped for long-term comfort and durability
-11.5 gauge back spring an ~9 gauge seat spring.

Appreciate the help.

try looking at lazy boy. I purchased one on sale for $1299 reg $1999. The quality is very good compared to stuff that is sold by the brick or leons.

They had some for $999 sale price.

We bought at the lazy boy gallery at scarborough town.

Had to wait 4 weeks for manufacture. Very happy and comfortable

Nothing these days beats LazyBoy for quality
Construction is top drawer
Buy one... lasts forever

AND it’s not your Grampa’s Recliner either
This company has evolved with the times

Not cheap tho

But ya buy it once and you are done

We have a Recliner from the 80s... lol
AND then a nice modern leather suite from about 15 years ago
Which looks BRAND NEW
Amazing quality / value for dollars spent

Would not buy a sofa anywhere else

How is the Andrea II couch holding up? The Bay has a sale on this couch right now for 50% off. Saw it in store and liked the the size and fabric of the sofa.

we had "beaumark" or something like that , that was purchased at the bay in the 80's.. quality was excellent and lasted about 30 years with no issues or even wear in the fabric...very pleased with the quality.
