Klaussner claims to have "Good Quality and Fine Workmanship Furniture" but don`t be fooled. You can get better from discount furniture stores that will last just as long, perhaps longer.

I recently spoke to Klaussner about the quality and workmanship on the furniture I purchased from Martins furniture 350 RT22 Greenbrook, NJ. I repeatedly had to call them from the day it was delivered for repairs,(staples poking out,buttons popping , material stretched too tight,causing slight tearing where seams were stitched together the recliner on the sofa is loose. They have since closed their store. The furniture looks terrible and its only about 3 years old I've also contacted an employee from your company.

Tina-1800-828-9534 for replacement buttons, that I received. My question to them was "Is this what you define as good quality and fine craftsmanship? I paid a lot of money for it and expected it to last a lot longer than a few years Their response, from the desk of Brenda Davis (bdavis@klaussner.com):need the bill of, sale. Sent it and Pics Thier response:we have reviewed the pictures and we can supply you with the buttons but you will have to pay for the labor.

the warranty is 2 yrs pass. I then responded with:e know its past the warranty date, however we thought we bought better quality furniture, for the price we paid. We could have gotten a full set, tables, lamps etc from Bob's discount or any other discount furniture store for half the price and it would have lasted longer than yours. The buttons are pulling threw from the the underside as well as the taring from the buttons on top.

It appears to be very poorly designed and we consider this a manufacturer defect.

Their final response was:I am sorry but the warranty is only a yr on this. They do not stand behind their claims don't buy anything the make!!!

I'm not sure what "a lot of money" is, but, I think that's the problem. $600-$800 dollars for a sofa is not a lot of money.

You get what you pay for. I own multiple items from Klaussner and have had no issues with any of them, but I spent a good bit over a few hundred dollars. I also am so confused, the Raleigh location, is the ONLY Klaussner store, in the WORLD!!! I know that because I stopped in and bought from them and had my items shipped to my home in Maryland.

Ask anyone at that location and they will tell you-they are the only store with the Klaussner name! Just like any other furniture store, they have authorized retailers, so it seems that most of the people blogging and leaving comments ordered furniture through the authorized retailers.

If you have had a bad experience at a certain furniture store, it should reflect on the furniture store, not the manufacturer.

I recently purchased Darcy collection-sofa, loveseat and accent chair; has not been delivered yet. Very concerned after reading these reviews.

Has anyone purchased this set or any piece?

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. so sorry I did not read these reviews before buying from Klaussner.

My husband and I have enjoyed our leather Klaussner sofas for seventeen years and they show no sign of wearing out.

Klaussner furniture is garbage and the owner, Barney Daly, is also a piece of garbage. His stores are closing left and right and he doesnt stand behind the cheap *** he sells.

Just threw out my Klaussner sofa and loveseat that I overpaid for, replacing with much cheaper American Signature pieces.

Barney, if you're out there, John and Karen said hello!

Oh, and thanks for responding to our emails, even though im quite sure you read them. :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Klaussner furniture is definitely not worth the price, and I spent a more than other family members who were buying furniture at the roughly the same time. When I first got it, I would say it was the most comfortable sofa and loveseat set I've ever had but it didn't last long.

Within a month of getting the pieces, (sofa) my boyfriend put his elbow into the side to move to a different position while watching television. The entire arm caved in, yes he was a strong guy, but seriously! The repairman came out to fix it and when he pulled the sofa apart it was merely cardboard and a layer of batting on the arms. Oh yeah, great thing I had a warranty I still had to pay for the service to have it "repaired" (cardboard pushed back out and fabric stapled back on), not sure what the warranty was covering on that one. Regardless, we try not to touch the arms now.

The frame is poorly assembled, no screws whatsoever, all staples. My tiny friend who was very pregnant at the time plopped down as pregnant ladies tend do and the rear section of frame pulled apart (she could not have weighed more than 140 pounds even then). My father reinforced it with metal brackets and hardwood as I wasn't about to spend money on a repair person just stapling things back together again.

I've had it 5 years and it sags pretty badly on the side that was not reinforced. Me and my young child do use it daily, but for the price I paid I would expect it to hold up far better. The cushions and material have all held up nicely with some fluffing, but the frame and components are CHEAP!!

My sister paid far less than half the price I did for a sofa at a local discount store and hers is still in wonderful condition and she even falls asleep and stays there all night frequently.

I love the look of the upholstered furniture of Klaussner, but when I start looking around again soon I won't be buying this brand!

I just purchased two Loewy slipcovered Klaussner sofas from a nearby furniture store. I knew nothing about Klaussner until I began reading these reviews.

Has anyone purchased this style?

I am really worried now about how long they will last! The last time I bought a sofa was in 1998 and it held up for years!

I love Klaussner furniture. I have two loveseats in chenille (Walker) and have had no problems in five years.

They are sooo comfortable and are still in great condition. I just ordered a sofa.

You people who are complaining about Klaussner must have out-of-control bratty kids jumping on them like they are trampolines. I have owned a Klaussner stationary sofa for over 5 years and it looks as good now as the day it was delivered.

I don't have any kids though.

Just 2 cats and friends that sit on my furniture. It's not junk or garbage and when it wears out years from now I will purchase more Klaussner furniture.

This is definitely a response from one of the owners, or probably Barney himself. Anyone with half a brain would dismiss this comment altogether.

I'm not in any way related to the owners and I love my Klaussner furniture. Just because you had a bad experience is no reason for you to pick on others.

We bought a Klausner sofa from Ohio's Amish country a little over 2 years ago. The frame broke nearly 2 months ago and although it's under warranty, they are dragging their feet and are looking for a cheaper repair person to fix it or we have to drag it back to Amish country.....almost 2 hours away.

I seem to be very satisfied with the furniure we have purchased. I also have pets that seem to enjoy the furniture.

I find this furniture to be quality built and able to withstand my pets. The price was excellent compared to other furniture.

I would purchase this furniture again in the future. :)

We purchased a Klaussner Libre sofa, chair and ottoman in January 2011. Within 3 months, the furniture store was here "restuffing" the cushions.

Since then we have had to restuff the seat and back cushions on both the sofa and chair by ourselves, at our expense. So far no response from Klaussner.

The furniture store will no longer help either. When we purchase furniture we expect to keep it clean, not rebuild it every 3 months.

I manage a furniture store that handles Klaussner and just wanted to say that in the last 3+ years that we have handled their furniture there has been no returns - and in regard to fabric or button issues - Klaussner is right when they say the the warranty is good for only one year - the furniture company does not make the fabris or buttons they import those in; so why would they stand behind something that isn't theirs? The furniture store that you bought the sofa from should have told you this and lastly there are different grades of fabric - buyers should always check for a higher grade, especially if it is in a high traffic area or with kids.

I work as a service technician for a furniture company. DONT BUY KLAUSSNER!

They used to have a good reputation but now the stuff they make is pure ***. They use dustcloth material where it shouldnt be used, they should use real decking fabric, and the plywood they use to make the frames for the sofa is worthless. They only use staples, no screws and the bonded leather wont last more than a year.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Try buying couches manufactured by UNITED, Corinthian, Madison House and you will get what you pay for.
