Question

Looking for a reclining loveseat with lumbar support. Came across two companies Flexsteel and Design Comfort. We want a long lasting piece of furniture. Our last recliners only lasted 5 years. I’m wanting that quality we used to get that lasted 10+. Please give me some insight. Thanks,

Answer

Of the two companies you have listed, Comfort Design makes a far superior product.

Most Flexsteel reclining sofas and loveseats are made using 2.0 density foam and non-removable seat cushions. This foam has an average lifespan of 3 – 5 years and cannot be replaced at a reasonable cost when it wears out.

Comfort Design uses 2.5 density foam and has removable seat cushions. 2.5 density foam should last 8 – 10+ years for most people and can be replaced for a few hundred dollars when it eventually wears out.

There are other quality differences as well, but the cushions are the biggest single factor in which brand I would recommend.
