The One To Avoid!
West Elm’s budget Peggy sofa, is prone to lose buttons or outright collapse and seems to be built so much worse than West Elm’s other items. West Elm has pulled the entire Peggy line from its stores and online. Furthermore, it has extended the option for full refunds on, or replacements for, any defective Peggy line furniture customers may have.
