I hate my couch and I want to get a new one. After watching craigslist religiously I am thinking I may give up on trying to find one I like used and buy one new. Ikea has one I like, and it is very comfortable: Sofa. It is available with a charcoal wool cover that looks really nice and very manly, though I don't know how it would be to lounge on it when it gets up in the 90s here. I could buy a cloth cover for it for the summer, though, if necessary. The problem I have is that I have the feeling it will not hold up well. I don't have access to an old one to see how durable they are, but for so little money they have to cut costs somewhere. Either the frame is somewhat weak or the cushions will get smushed down, or something. If I am going to spend this much money on a durable item, I want it to be really durable. I'm not hard on furniture, but I don't want to have to be careful around it either. Does anyone have any experience with Ikea cushioned furniture (sofas/loveseats)? In my experience, some of their stuff is great and some is crap. So...? Thanks.
