Lessons Learned: Buying and Owning L Sectional (Sofa)

A video on lesson learned by buying and owning a L shaped sectional (sofa). I’ll details what I learned over 2.5 years owning this Bassett L-Sectional (sofa). I’m not pleased with the results of my sofa so I thought I share what I learned to help others.

Tips Learned:
1) Price doesn’t guarantee good quality
2) Buy leather ( Full Grain, Top Grain are the best quality) all the way around of tears or cracks can happen.
3) Dye on leather quality (some fade and comes off). This can be very noticeable on dark color sofa i.e. the one in the video)
4) Seats Sags over time. Cushions support lacks.
5) Back support lacks.
6) Workmanship of sofa, look carefully in store. I learned mines in this video built quality lacks just from day one. Some zippers aren’t zipping back up after 1 year.
7) Note the motorized can break down so note where you buy these and take note of warranty. Consider manual reclining option.
8) Best to buy once seemed and tested. Try it out before buying. Buying online for furniture is not recommended.
9) Sectionals are hard to move and clean around.
10) Price has a higher price than loveseat and Sofas

Don’t think you mentioned it but you should have used leather protectant

Nick Clark says:

I have never had a bad experience with any sofa my family has owned. We have had an Italian made leather sofa for about 10 years now. I thing we paid about three thousand dollars for our as a set. Very good quality. Only just starting to fade and the leather scratching up now. But I think we could get another 3 years out of it still.

Was the frame hard wood or pressed wood? Also did it have springs ?

Ryan Kelly says:

This was great, thanks, I have been researching “build furniture legs” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Venoffison Wooden Exploration – (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my buddy got excellent success with it.
