Thanks for the update R osie.

I hope that after you finally buy furniture you post pictures and a complete account of the experience because we care.

We got some leather stuff from art van - been happy with it, once we got it. It took awhile to get, and they sold the first set out from under us (claimed it was damaged in shipment, but couldn't show me the damaged furniture because it was against "company policy")

Been holding up well for 4 years.

We've bought furniture from Art Van...crappy quality...tried Thomasville...really nice...but expensive if it isn't a close out item...and Lay-Z-Boy which is holding up OK thus far.... Good luck.

This past summer, I bought a couch, loveseat, end tables and a coffee table from Art Van and I really like the stuff. Seems to be good quality too. I did my more expensive stuff though so it would hold together for a long time. I'm happy with my experiance.

our art van couch from 1.5 years ago is busting at the seams already and we dont even sit on it that much!

kelly whatever you buy, remember to get something black and make sure it has storage, and if u can find something with a glass top that would be even better :)

We had a good experience with Art Van and our lazy boy reclining sofa is holding up well after 1 year.
