Update by user Jan 03
I revisited the store this afternoon and spoke with a different manager (Brandon). He seemed genuinely shocked and concerned that my case had not been resolved by the other staff.
I am now awaiting the arrival of a new matching sofa, scheduled to come in the next 2-3 weeks. I will update again at that time, and I am feeling somewhat better about this situation at this time.

The couch that came with the set we purchased has had problems with the reclining mechanism. I submitted a warranty claim on Nov 27th, and was assured that the claim would be handled within a month's time.
I checked periodically with AF for the status of the claim, and no new developments. Concerned on Dec. 26th, I stopped by the store to speak with someone in person. Again, I was assured that progress was going to be made, and that I would hear back before the end of the week (Dec. 28th).
I am now a week later, and have called to check on the warranty status, with employees telling me that they will call back later in the day. I still have no results. I have reached out to corporate for help, and they have pointed me back to a regional manager, who have I have left a message with.
I hope this is resolved, and will be investigating next steps. As of now, we have a partially functioning sofa that we paid too much for, and I hope people considering AF for furniture see this posting and video first before considering them for business.
