This couch broke on us in two weeks! Do not waste your money! It looked fantastic when put together, but the back leg just broke in two! We could tell it wasn't the best of quality when we took it out of the box, but we expected it would last at least a year or so...aesthetically, It's a lovely design, looks just like the picture, but the construction is very poor. You can tell by the way it is designed, that it may not hold human weight, and it doesn't!...My ten year old daughter just sat down on it, we heard a creeeeak, and then it collapsed! it is now schlumped in the corner of the room until we can decide what to do....returning it would be a hastle, so my husband is considering trying to reinforce it somehow...good grief!
I was so excited to find a well designed couch at a great price. I got it and it was so easy to put together-but I received two pillow without covers and the fluff literally disintegrated in my hands. No matter, I thought, I didn't really love the pillows and it wasn't why I ordered this couch. I had it about a month before the back legs fell out when I moved the couch in my living room.Within all three months all legs had fallen off. I contacted overstock and they asked if I thought I could repair it myself. I figured that the threaded joint just came out of the supporting cross bar underneath the couch, So I told them I would try. Returning it and having to pack it would have been a giant pain, although after what it took to make it stable-I probably would have in hind sight. So, I took it down to my father-in laws amazing wood shop. My thought was a few clamps, some saw dust and wood glue would do the trick . Nope. First, I removed the front and back legs-that are two different lengths-thereby distributing the weight unevenly on the back legs, OK maybe that was why the back fell off so quickly, I can fix that with the sander. I then moved to the upholstery- once I pulled it back, it became apparent that the "supporting" wood where the legs screw into was completely unstable, seriously it was mind blowing. The OSB board that the leg screwed into was cracked around all four threaded pieces and HAD BEEN STAPLED AND GLUED BACK TOGETHER on the back right side (first piece to fall off). Not to mention that this board was only about 3/8' thick-entirely to thin to bear any weight-hence the cracking. In the end I, with a lot of help from the knowledgeable father in-law, took apart the bottom pieces added 2x4's across the bottom, drilled and and added threaded pieces in the correct locations. We then added a bit of leather trim along the bottom to cover the depth difference so that these new pieces didn't show, since the original purple would not have covered them. I then removed the male thread from the top of the front legs, cut the front legs down about 1/4 of an inch and sanded the remaining height off of them so that the legs sat with equal weight distribution, then replacing the threaded screw on top so that only height was lost-not the style of the castors. After all was done, the couch is a little high and honestly not really that comfortable to begin with, but at least it is no going to break. I WILL NEVER BUY FROM THIS DESIGNER AGAIN. I have an overstock credit card and lot's of points, but for about 6 months I wondered if I should trust what they sell on their website after this purchase. I especially consider now how hard will this be to return if the quality is not up to par. What would I have done if I hadn't had a work shop to do all this in?
