I was quite skeptical about purchasing the Ektorp loveseat and Jennylund chair for our kitchen area, but my husband was adamant and the price was good. The Jennylund is used every day and is the primary chair my husband and son (6 yrs old & perched atop the arms) sit in together to discuss their weekend plans. The loveseat gets equal use. Five (5) years later, not only is the integrity of the construction still tight and solid, but the cushions do not so much as show a dent. The couch and chair were like new underneath. I went recently to Ikea to replace the slipcovers and ended up buying the Ektorp chair (couldn't get the same pattern in Jennylund as Ektorp). Have moved the Jennylund to our bedroom for reading corner and moved the bigger Ektorp to it's place in kitchen. The Ektorp chair is well cushioned, super comfortable, heavy, and solid. I am truly impressed with this particular set of couches and chairs. I never "plump" this couch or chair - they simply don't need it - they always look ready to go. Not sure that spending twice as much for PB would have made me any happier than I am with this set as is.
