This sleek and modern fabric Cape sofa is a must-have addition for a stylish home. Its clean lines and contemporary finish would look great with a hardwood floor: the zigzag bolster pillows add the final touches to this stylish piece....more
I was expecting to assemble the couch myself, but I didn't realize the back would have velcro seams. The couch looks great from the front, but the back sides and bottom have velcro seams about 3/4 of the way up to allow for assembling the couch. The edges of the seams stick up a bit, and the black velcro underneath shows near the cream edges. It's a great couch if it's going to be put up against a wall, but if you want a couch for the center of your room consider something else instead.
I live in a 498 sq ft apartment so I need a sofa that is small, but stylish, and good to sit on. I didn't want a futon because I'm past futons, but a lot of the 'apartment size' sofa designs on Overstock looked like doctor's waiting room furniture to me.
Until I found this one. I'm really happy with it. Somehow, it looks even better in person than it does in the online pictures. Go figure. Probably because the accessories in the photo are a little bit cheesy. The photo also makes it look white, and it's not white. I was prepared for that based on other reviews. And like others have said, it's actually a nicer color than white would be. It's a very pale soft sandy gray color. This color will take wear & use a lot better than the color it looks in the online photos.
But what I love the most is the way this sofa is really stylish. It can take either a modern influence, or a traditional one. I can put black and white pillows on it and set it on a modern rug, and it looks great. Or I can throw an antique quilt on it, and set it on an oriental rug, that looks great too. Not very many pieces of furniture can actually do that.
It's pretty straightforward to put it together. Not easy but not hard. The directions say it takes two people but it doesn't. If you know you're impatient and you don't read directions, then you need someone to do it with you. But if you're the person who always reads the directions, then you can definitely put it together yourself.
And I didn't believe it when the other reviewers said it takes a couple of hours to build the sofa, but it really does. Don't let that put you off though. I started at 12 noon and before I knew it, it was 2:00 pm. The time went fast and it was actually fun to see the furniture take shape. Before I knew it, I had sofa to sit on. Now I know how they build all that furniture you see in ***** It's the same stuff, but this is cheaper, and they don't try to upsell you things you don't need.
It's also decently comfortable. I've laid long ways on the sofa several times to read a book. The arms support your back which is great if you love to lounge out and read books. This is a one person lounger though. You will be lounging with your book by yourself. So for a lot of people, this could be a good sofa for the sitting room area of their master bedroom. Or in a Manhattan apartment.
If you know what you like, and you want a small, well designed, versatile sofa that can bridge people's styles, on a small sofa budget, and you know how to follow directions, then you should get this sofa.
I received the sofa within a few days in two boxes. This was perfect for my place because I live on the third floor and it was easier to carry the parts up the stairs than it would have been to carry a sofa. The boxes were a little damaged, but the sofa was well wrapped in plastic and was not damaged in any way. All of the hardware and an allen wrench was included and clearly indicated in the instructions. I put this together with my Mom and could not have done it alone. It took us at least 3 hours because all of the holes on the arms did not line up with the holes on the seat and back of the sofa. This meant a sequence of tightening and loosening the bolts that did align until we could force the ones that didn't to at least get close enough. One tip is that we ended not using one of the alignment dowels because it was making things worse. Once together, this is a cute small sofa. The color looks like the online picture and the fabric is actually nicer than I was expecting. Overall, I am completely satisfied with this sofa, since it was easy to transport and came out nice after it was together.
i put this together by myself in 45 minutes. (i am a 130# woman, who doesn't go to the gym.) the trick is to only hand tighten the bolts (not all the way) and go back and tighten that section once all the bolts are in. if not, you will have issues with alignment. the couch is comfy and ideal for a small space. it is not large enough to lay flat. but i was looking for something proportionate to my space and this fits perfectly. i also didn't have any issues with the velcro showing in back. i'm not sure if i'm made of awesome, or if there are quality control issues and i got lucky. but i'm quite happy.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fairly accurate, slightly darker IRL
For its price point, its exceptional. I read the other reviews first, and was prepared for the different color (more tan/sand-ish, like everyone is saying), and agree that its better than white or bone would be. the fabric is very nice to touch, and its quite firm, which i love. i'm about 5; 3", and i can lie comfortably on it by wrapping around or propping myself up on one of the arms. i also put it together myself, in about an hour, and while its not super easy, its wasn't hard either, and i felt it was pretty straight forward (four big pieces to screw together). also, like the other reviews said, the back is velcroed into place, and a bit of the black at the edges show, which is fine with me, because i have it against the wall anyways. i've only had it for about two weeks, so we'll see how it wears, but i've noticed that the cushion takes a while to "fluff" back up after i've sat on it. altogether, quite pleased.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? More sand colored (NOT WHITE OR IVORY)
Please tell us about the quality of the product. nice
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very
By far the worst couch I have ever bought and will NEVER order from Overstock again. I bought this couch along with the warranty. Within a few months of purchasing, the wood frame had splintered so badly that the legs could not stay in. After weeks of back and forth with the warranty company, they decided not to do anything about the couch but rather refund me for the cost of the warranty...the $50 warranty, not the $400 couch. Thanks for the 50 bucks but now I have a couch sitting directly on the floor with no legs. Why even buy a warranty if it doesn't cover damage, especially when the damage is clearly from faulty materials rather than wear and tear?
I wish I had bought two when I did.he color sold out too fast for me to get another. It is very cute, contemporary and comfortable. Actually I bought it just for a quick fix in my daughter's house never intending it to be a long term piece of furniture. The girls just love it! It's not going anywhwere.
I went through the reviews and knew it was going to be an adventure to assemble. I did get stuck on one bolt for hours (because I did this myself) but it finally came together. I have it against a wall so I'm not concerned with the velcro on the back panel peeking through.
All in all, this was a great value for the price and is very stylish. The color is a light neutral beige that will go with anything.
LOVE this sofa. It took 2 people 4 hours to put this together, but it was worth it. Color is darker than the photo as other reviewers have pointed out. Quality is good, sofa is firm and the two little geometric print bolsters are very cute.
Excellent quality for the money. I replaced the "cheap" looking pillows with nice ones and the couch looks like a "million bucks."
I ordered one and will order another one. It is firm but soft to the touch. It took a while to put it together but the result was worth the effort.
Hi ashbashcash, we recommend using warm water and a clean damp cloth. You can add a little vinegar to your water solution for tough stains. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 27, 2014
Thank you for your inquiry. This item is made from polyester. Similar to microfiber but not exactly.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 7, 2013
no... more of a really shallow corduroy. If you run your hand over it, it has a direction to it but it isn't microfiber.hortonica on Apr 29, 2013
No, it is more like a micro-tweed material,.kamy505 on Oct 6, 2013

Below-it can hold 225lbs/person. Is this a 1 or 2 person couch? Can 2 people, for example, in total weight of 350lbs sit on this couch?bdz1 on Jan 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
is it possible to re-order just one piece of the sofa? in particular the left end piece? it's not a problem with the furniture -- just a problem with a cat scratching that one particular end. on Jun 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
