Last year I purchased a new sofa from La-z-boy, the model I chose was the Clarkston in light tan. The sofa was a bit pricey but because it is all leather, the retail value of this furniture is slightly higher than what you may find in other stores. I love the color because it blended in with my decor. The texture of the sofa is great, and is smooth to the touch. There are two recliners on either end of the sofa so more than one person can enjoy the reclining benefits. The sofa easily seats three people. The sofa is also comfortable to lay on if you need to take a nap, Ive fell asleep many times on it. The quality of the sofa is outstanding. I have not had any scratches or tears and I have three dogs and three kids that give it plenty of wear. The durability is why I chose La-z-boy, I know it will be around for years to come.
