RE: McCreary Modern (Follow-Up #26)

Well, it seems as though this thread has come back from the dead on several occasions, so I thought I'd do my part and spark it up again... ;-)

My wife and I recently bought our first home, and we have been searching for our first high quality sectional that will withstand the test of time. We have two dogs, and we will be having kids in the not so distant future, so we are certainly looking for durability to go along with looks.

After looking at the usual places, both high-end (Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Restoration Hardware, Macy's, etc.), and low-end (Living Spaces, Bassett Furniture, etc.)...we stumbled upon a couch we absolutely loved. The couch was at Macy's, and after some research we discovered it was a McCreary Modern "Doss" sectional.

After reading some of the quality issues on this forum, I am hesitant to make this purchase, especially considering the nearly $3,000 price tag. Thanks to this wonderful forum, like others, I have learned that a sofa/sectional with kiln dried hardwood and 8-way hand tied springs is the way to go.

I am posting here to get some feedback and suggestions as to the brands and manufacturers to take into consideration and look for that features these qualities/attributes...

I look forward to hearing from you, and thanks in advance for any and all help. Cheers!
