    Default Urban Barn - Good Quality?

    I'm looking to buy a sofa from Urban Barn. Has anyone bought any furniture from them? How is the quality of their furniture. The sofa is a bit more expensive than what I wanted to pay but if its good quality then its worth it.

    Thanks.

    i have leather bar stools and dining room chairs from them, all seem to be holding up pretty well and ive had them for about a year now. No signs of any real wear and tear at all. Id definately buy more stuff from there.

    They are really good with shipping the items as well. I picked mine up at the warehouse and they opened it up (very well packaged) and inspected it with me before i accept anything.. no kids throwing around furniture in the back room or anything.. its all very professional.

    Most of those type of stores carry the same furniture lines anyways, so I'd look at who manufactured the furniture.

    Places like that usually don't sell cheap stuff so I think you're ok.

    LIke many shops they sell good quality and not so good quality. Do a little research on what you are buying.

    Agreed. Usually you can tell if something is cheap or not by just taking some time and look at the frame, the stitching, materials, etc.

    Pretty much all my furniture is from UB and it's been good so far. What I liked about UB is they keep most stuff in stock, I was able to get my couches, chairs, endtables and lamps a few days later. Most places have to order it and it takes 6-8 weeks if not longer.

    UB sofa's are pretty good... Unlike sofa's at amber's, ashley, leons, the brick, etc... the back coshins aren't sewn to the sofa (usually this saves on material) so you can actually flip them over to keep them from sagging (Like flipping your mattress).

    I bought a sofa from Urban Barn. I love it, yes - it was more expensive at the end of the day but I thought it was a unique style and had a really good warranty in my opinion.

    I bought my bed from Urban Barn, I have nothing but good things to say about them. The guy's who came to set it up were clean/professional/quick. A year later I saw my bed for sale at The Brick for $400 more than I paid a year earlier at UB.

    Yes, many of these places use the same suppliers for their furniture - if you see something there that you like I'd also be tempted to look around to see if you can't get it cheaper somewhere else. BUT, Urban Barn does seem to have very reliable pricing.

    I wish the UB in Calgary was as big as the UB in edmonton...

    you want something with a 25 year warranty for a couch. If it doesn't have a 25 year warranty they're expecting it to fall apart.

    Ikea for example builds the fronts of their couches with cheap particle board.

    Holy crap man, this thread is almost six years old. I don't think he's looking for advice anymore.........

    They really don't have a decent way of giving out deals to friends etc. They do a friends and family day a few times a year that usually is 10-20% off I believe. But I get fantastic deals.

    I have a leather sofa from Urban Barn that has lasted me 4 years so far and it still looks brand new to me.

    I like a lot of their stuff. It's pretty good quality. Their wood furniture is actually built quite well and isn't actually all that pricy.
