As an interior designer, I find the quality, construction and the customer service after the sale to be exceptional. When you purchase Ethan Allen, Thomasville, Drexel Hertitage, Hooker or Pennsylvania House furniture you are making an investment. The upholstered pieces are well constructed and timeless enough that when you tire of the fabric, you can re-upohlster them easily. In most cases, you will be able to recoup your original investment and more should you sell them on the secondary market at a later date. They are durable and can take the abuse of daily use, pets and children. I have clients which have purchased these furnitures brands over 30 years and have never had one complaint. BTW, none of them offer consideration to the trade and I personally have owned pieces from all of these manufacturers. To pay the best price and get the most value, look for the discontinued lines, clearances and when the new catalogs come out, because floor space is limited and they reduce prices on old stock.
