A few weekends ago we said goodbye to a couple of our living room Couches. We have decided to replace some old Couches that we got from Bob's Discount Furniture to some nice ones from Jordan's Furniture. We bought the love seat rocker couch in 2003, and the bigger couch in 2005.
Both of the Couches were in fairly good condition. One problem was that the Sofa couch foot rest handle broke. As a result, this means that we were unable to use the footrest in one of the seats. In the love seat rocker, the plastic between the two seats had small cracks in them. We have two cats, and they didn't do any damage to the Couches. Instead of the donating the Couches, we gave them to a co-worker who was looking for Couches for their basement.
The new Couches from Jordan's are very comfortable. They have power footrests, which will make it easy to put up the footrest whenever we need to. In addition, we won't encounter the same issue as the last Couch, the handle probably broke because of the constant use.
The only thing that the new Couch doesn't have is the pull-down table in the center of the sofa. We used this feature a lot to store TV remotes, drinks and assorted books and things. When we were looking at Couches, it seems that the center table isn't a choice anymore. All the manufacturers have removed it, or replaced it with a smaller table that doesn't function well enough to consider.
At some point, we will search for a sofa table as a replacement. This might be challenging because underneath the couch is a metal bar, and it will be difficult to side a table bottom underneath.
We had a good shopping experience at Jordan's in Natick. The process was very simple, and they answered all the questions that we had about the new couch. We are disappointed that they are changing out the Mardi Gras theme in the main entrance way. It was a fun area where kids can watch the show and look forward to visiting the store.
One of the things that we should have done is measure the existing Couches before going out shopping. That way we would have known if the new Couches were bigger or smaller than the existing ones.
We ended up getting a Love Seat and a Sofa. We felt got a great deal on them. Later we discovered that they were cheaper than anything similar that Bobs had to offer.
