So, yes, that happened. My dear brother sat on our sofa and crack! I wasn’t really too upset. I think I may have smiled a bit when it happened, after I found out said brother was okay of course. That sofa didn’t owe us anything. It was inexpensive and it “lasted” about 8 years. That being said, we weren’t quite ready to invest in a quality piece… so we got out a few stacks of paper and voila! Sometimes quality is worth the wait. I wanted our next sofa to last us a long time. It’s the only sofa in our house, so it needs to be a work horse.
