Pottery Barn vs Crate and Barrel Sofas

14 years ago

After Christmas I will begin my search for new living room furniture. My once "hardly ever used" living room has a gas fireplace insert now and a TV, which makes us want to sit in this warm, cozy room all the time now. I want to replace 30 year-old Ethan Allen sofas.

I want the room to be comfortable and still look good. Because I'm not sure just what I want I began looking at the slipcovered sofas in both Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel. I honestly can't tell if one store's furniture is better than the others. It seems to me that I favor the Pottery Barn, but I'm not sure why. Maybe because the slipcovers seem to be "neater..." I love the slipcovered look, but even in the decorating magazines, the really, loose slipcover idea I don't think is for me.

So, basically I'm asking if you have had experiences with either store of if you have purchased sofas and chairs with slipcovers from either store?

thank you.
