looks like they currently have 3 piece sofa sets with top grain  love seat, sofa, and armchair  for 2-2500... I think they carry the single sofas for $899 or so in store in January and again around July

I bought my couch a couple years back it started peeling after a half a year  by now there's almost nothing left to peel off (it looks similar to the pic in first post inverted), is it worth it to reupholster? who would do a good job that lasts and with what material? please share your experience thanks.

The sales manager at Ashley Furniture told us “You can get the leather look for much cheaper and after a few years when you are tired of it get a new one. Still will cost you less than real leather”,


“Bonded leather” is a cheaper manufacturer’s first line of attack in selling you the look and feel of leather for a “great deal.” Unfortunately, bonded leather is hardly leather at all—by definition, it has to be only 17% leather. So leather is to bonded leather what chicken is to chicken McNuggets (or pressboard to wood, or dryer lint to fabric): In other words, it’s processed beyond recognition.
