Lee Industries from Crate and Barrell

14 years ago

Thanks to tips from people on this forum I found out that you can get Lee Industries products from CB. After doing research on my own I unfortunately found out that the Bayside chairs and sofas that I was interested in are not 8 way hand tied suspension but sinous wire spring suspension even though they are made by Lee Industries. This surprised me because on Lee's website they give details on the fine craftsmanship of all of their products and they list Crate and Barrell as an authorized dealer. A little misleading I thought. Does anyone have any insight on whether or not this means that all of the CB Lee products will be of lesser quality than other Lee products, even the ones that are 8-way hand tied? So many people seem to have insider knowledge so I thought I would ask :)

I am particularly interested in slipcovered chairs. Does anyone have experience with the Bayside chair or sofa? What about the Cayman...which is 8-way hand tied. The big upholstery sale is coming up...August 29th-October 5th so I want to be prepared, 25% off. We have a 5 hour drive to get there with a 21 month old.......should be good times :)

On a side note........anyone have experience with any other brand of slicovered chairs that they love? The price can exceed that of CB.

I am also going to write a list of all of the Lee Industries products that I was given and whether or not they are 8-way hand tied.....fortunately, most are. This is just FYI for anyone doing research like I was. Azure-no, Briarwood-yes, Cameron-no, Cayman-yes, Eiffel-yes, Grammercy (no but it is just an ottoman), Josephine-yes, Mansfield-yes, Marsden-no, Metropole-yes, Paramount-no, Ross-yes, and Saivon-yes. Hope this helps anyone interested.
