If you needbetter chairs check out used furniture near you listed on youe facebook market place. We outfited our whole livingroom with lazy boy leather recliners and a (in new condition) lazy boy leather sofa. for less than 500 fabric furniture often goes for around 40 to 60. And you might meet some really cool freaks! I know I have!
