The couch and matching chair my neighbor gave me were Broyhill brand.. Was not expecting that.. While we were in their garage she also gave me almost new three drawer dresser and a shelf unit that matched. The dresser is going into my room, and the shelf (with a door) is in the livingroom.. I am toooo excited.
