Maybe a silly question, but I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend a
furniture store. We can't afford top quality :-), but would also like
something that will still be comfortable after a few years. I'm a bit
wary of just going to, say, DFS, but perhaps I'm being unfair. Is there
such a thing as a nationwide furniture seller that makes reasonable
stuff, or do we really have to go around all the small local shops?
Google isn't helping, since apparently /everyone/ makes top quality
stuff (according to their own websites, of course).
Without being racist, which of course I'm not.
Avoid any Asian outfits.
My wife bought a 3 piece suite from the Asians for ?1k. It was fucked 5
The chest of drawers she got from some Asian outfit is looking past it's
best after 7 years.
As a contractor I've seen Asians using a hair drier on "leather" furniture.
The "leather" started to split. This was not good enough for us, but would
have been quite acceptable to some piss poor spark living on a scum council
estate in Yorkshire.
Have you ever thought of growing a pair and buying your own house?
So, you actually bought that council house????!!!! Please tell us that you
did not buy that shithole.
I've watched the videos that you posted here. Shithole.
Stupid is as stupid does.
My wife is not fat, neither am I.
I have something that a pikey such as yourself will never have. A wife, a
nice home and money in the bank.

No experience, and not nationwide in the showrooms sense, but Thomas Lloyd / SofaSofa claim to make all their own stuff in the UK (in Wales, actually, look you) for 35 years. 2 year / 5 year frame guarantees.
Some of the bigger department stores seem to be able to source things from
smaller outfits, I went to Bentalls to source a replacement for the DFS one
and they even made it with detachable arms for easy ingress into difficult
It all depends what you call reasonable, price wise, and often its onlafter
living with it for some time that the problems crop up as I mentioned
earlier about DFS. Might well have just been a bad batch of springs, but I
bet they do source things as cheaply as they can, and some things must slip
through that you would hopefully not get from a good well known department
trying to protect their reputation.
