What is the quality of Craftmaster Furniture?

Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Craftmaster is above average in quality for U.S. made mid-priced sofas.

The diagram below was taken from the Craftmaster website. I have made some observations in Bold Italics.

A - Hardwood Frame Consisting Of Hardwood Rails And Hardwood Laminates. This is standard for mid-priced furniture and should last 10 - 20 years.

B - Heavily Padded Arms. Standard.

C - Tie Wires On Back & Seat Springs For Additional Support. Above average.

D - Heavy Gauge Sinuous Wire Springs For Durability And Comfort. Cheapest type of foundation support but should last 20 years or more.

E - Heavily Padded In-Back. Standard.

F - 100% Dacron Polyester Fiber Back Cushion Encased In A Sewn Ticking With Separate Compartments To Prevent Fiber Fall Down. The sewn ticking with separate compartments is above average.

G - 2.0 Density High Resiliency Foam Core With Dacron Fiber Wrapping. Above average. 2.0 density cushions should last about 1 year longer than standard 1.8 density foam cushions. 4 - 6 years for average size people with average use.

H - Fully Lined Tailored Skirts. This is the correct way to make a skirt. Not everybody does.

I - Padded Edge Roll. Above average.

J - Insulated Seat Pad For Added Comfort. Standard.

K - Joints Are Mortise And Tenon Or Double Dowelled, Glued, & Corner Blocked For Durability. Good joint construction techniques.

L - Wood Legs On Skirted Frames Are Built Into The Frame For Strength & Durability. Exposed Wood, Decorative Legs Are Securely Mounted To The Base Of The Frame. Built-in legs are stronger than screw in legs, but make it harder to fit a sofa through a doorway. If your sofa does not have a skirt, you probably will not have built-in legs.
