My experience with PB has been that their furniture is poorer quality than most: I've had pieces from PB, Macy's and Room and Board as well as a handful of local vendors. With a replacement slipcover my Room and Board couch is still going strong after 10 years (I can hardly believe it myself). The PB stuff is creaky and worn, especially the wood table and chairs. Not well made at all. Our Macy's couch is in decent shape after 5 years of heavy use by my sons, but it's not going to outlast our Room and Board sofa.

I'm glad to read so many comments from people who have difficulty with guests! My in-laws and my husband's siblings feel entitled to use our home whenever they are traveling nearby. (I am just as uncomfortable when my family stays with us, but they almost always get a hotel!) The in-law visits have actually forced us to consider buying a bigger house, which is really ludicrous and expensive. I resent it.
