why would you say this is spam? All i did was ask a question. I guess you can think that but if anyone else has a real reply that would be greatly appreciated.

With 10 kids, I would stay with items that are welded.

Funny you should ask... I have to leather couches from Ashley. They are 4 years old and though the leather has held up well, the cushion support seems to be weak. I have no children, and I only weigh 155, but they are beginning sag when you sit on it. One of my tasks for today is to remove the dust cover from the bottom and try to bolster it up. Ashley is good if you dont plan to keep it for a long period, and with 10 kids that probably isn't an option anyway.

Just curious.. Is Ashley Home Furnishings Stores and Ashley brand furniture the same? Because they are a high end store. If you have 10 kids I would suggest Walmart for Sauder desks, beanbag chairs and a pack of trogans.

Ashley furniture is marketed towards young two-somes. its not built to withstand kids.

with 10 kids, i'd just buy the walmart special and then replace it ever year until your kids are older.

I just bought a wooden kitchen table and not a month in my home and already a nasty scratch from laying a pizza box on the table...I am guessing the staple used to hold the freaking flyer was the culprit. I lost some respect for the quality of the finish but since it is not a wood scratch it just scratched the finish which is enough for me cause its pretty darn visible. Just be careful what you buy and dont go off your gut feeling truly pull on it and tug on whatever you want to buy just make sure its good. Not sure if there is a harlem furniture around you but many here in the chicago area and I have sofa couches that are 8 years old without a tear and I have a dog and a hyper active 7 year old and a 10 year old so they have good stuff,,,mom has alwways bought her stuff there too and I beat on all of it and still there today.

???? That's like calling Miller Lite a high end beer.... Ashley furniture in my opinion is neither low-end or high-end in regards to quality or price. It is just okay, looks nice, and gets the job done for a while.

The store in Anchorage Alaska "Ashley home furnishings" is a high end furniture store... One of the more expensive stores in town. My question was if the product on the shelf was as nice as theyre showroom, fancy parking and lighting, commercials and grand apearance? I was wondering if they were affiliated with Ashley furniture or if the owner's name was Ashley?!?!
