Question:

What is your opinion of Lee furniture? I am looking at a 92” sofa that has only 4 feet. Do you think that a middle leg is needed? They use hardwood frames and 8 way tied foundations.

There are too many choices for cushions. I’m not a fan of down. I have owned Rowe, Baker, Drexel Heritage, Calico and Ethan Allen. How does Lee compare?

Answer:

Unless, you are looking at a sofa with thin legs that are 5″ high or more, the middle leg should not be needed.

The hardwood frames and 8 way hand-tied indicate a high quality construction.

Cushion options:

  • Down/feather cushions are too expensive and require too much “fluffing” and maintenance for most people.
  • Lee’s Spring Fiber and Cloud 9 cushion options will last far longer than the standard NaturalLee cushion. Go with one of those.
    • The small amount of down/feathers in the Cloud 9 option will not cause any problems and will slightly improve the cushion’s comfort compared with the Spring Fiber option.

Among the companies you have listed, I would rank Lee behind Baker and Drexel Heritage and ahead of Ethan Allen.

Lee is far superior to Rowe. I am not familiar with Calico construction or quality.
