    Default Konto Furniture?

    Anyone know anything about Konto Furniture? Alberta company, wife likes a sofa from there. Good quality? Good price? Is it the same low-level shit everywhere sells or better made? I haven't done my research, my internet is down, relying on beyond for info.

    Never heard of these guys before. Their pricing looks decent on the surface but havening not seen it, I don't know how well its made. This is a link to the parent company: https://nordicholdings.ca/nordic-hol...rdic-holdings/

    Doesn't look like it by reading up on the company. Its more likely a combination of both. I would think thinks like chairs and stools might come from overseas but sofas and sections are probably made in Canada. There are a lot of manufacturers that make that sort of thing in Canada.

    I bought a Konto sectional in ~2007. It was a small condo sized microfibre 2pc sectional and it is still going strong. overall I would say the quality is pretty good but pricing was on the high side when I purchased it (I think I paid like $17-1800 in 2007 dollars). For contrast, I bought a faux pleather sectional w/ reclining headrests from a local furniture company that I think is made in china stuff which has also held up OK over the last 4 years and was significantly cheaper around $1100.

    TLDR: would buy from there again if I could not find something cheaper at diff stores that I liked.

    They're fine. I've shopped there and I think my friends have bought something. There nothing wrong with them.
    It's not high-end, super fancy but that should be obvious from the prices.

    On a related note: does anyone know of options that have come into the local market to replace Nordesign? It was a really good happy medium of quality/price. I haven’t found anything since they left, and it’s disappointing.

    pretty much. all comes in on containers.

    we bought a big sectional from sofa land who is affiliated with Konto. overall pretty happy with it, but one of our electric recliners have stopped working about 3 years after the purchase.
