Starting over with all new luggage-need advice

After having some unfortunate failures with well regarded luggage, I've been temporarily using a few cheap quick fix bags. Time to upgrade! I would love some recommendations for my specific needs.
I don't travel for business. I need a smaller rolling bag for my more frequent weekend trips and a large (26" +) for my yearly 2-3 week trips. I've never had a hard sided bag, although I'm possibly open to one. I also need a soft duffel for an upcoming safari trip.
I'm not the lightest packer. I always check my bag, even on short trips. I generally travel coach on short flights, always travel business on overseas flights. I'm hoping to find something that is both functional and attractive.
I've waded through through the advice here, but it does seem mostly geared to business travelers, and those who prefer carry-ons.
Thanks so much.
