Are Bauhaus Sectionals Good Quality?

By Jeff Frank


Can you rate sectionals made by Bauhaus? Durability, construction, etc.?


Bauhaus is mid-range quality, mass produced furniture.

Quality ranks slightly below LaZBoy, Craftmaster, Flexsteel.

Bauhaus is especially known for its modern, oversized styles.

In addition to selling under its own name through retailers, the company also supplies a few large retail chains as an in-house store brand.

Frames: Plywood frames. 5 – 7 plies. Not the most expensive construction but should last 10+ years without problems.

Foundation: Sinuous wire spring seat support.

This is one of the least expensive type of seat support possible but should hold up for 10 – 20 years.

Cushions: 1.8 density dacron wrapped foam cushions.

This is the first part of the sectional (or sofa) that will wear out.

1.8 density foam cushions can feel noticeably softer after only 1 year and uncomfortably soft after 3 – 5 years.

Loss of resiliency (ability to bounce back) and flattening is considered normal wear under the warranty, even when it occurs during the first year.

If 1.8 density cushions are used by individuals weighing 250 lbs. or more, they may wear out even sooner than 3 years.

Fabrics: Mostly low cost, durable, stain resistant polyester or olefin fabrics.
