I will admit after reading the reviews I was worried about ordering this sofa because of the difficulty others had putting it together. I am a senior citizen and didn't have any help and did it in about an hour and a half. I was lucky that the UPS man carried in the boxes because they were heavy. As others have said the sofa is firm but I think it is fairly comfortable. It is the perfect size for my condo and the color was just as shown in the picture. I also like the texture of the fabric. Overall, I am really pleased.
I absolutely love my new couch! The fabric is a beautiful color and this really interesting soft ribbed texture. Given its rigid sides and back, it is not uncomfortable as would be expected. The only complaint I could possibly have is about the padding on the seat. It tends to collapse a bit after sitting in the same area.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Cool couch...more for decor than comfort. I'm a single, but an able bodied woman & i put this together by MYSELF in a lil over an hour. Initially the couch is super hard to sit on, but softens up over time. It's not the kind of couch for lounging or cuddling because its kind of small & hard, but it looks great & if it's for a spare room that you dont use everyday...it's perfect.
My husband had very little trouble putting it together. It looks very elegant in our living room and everyone is surprised that I ordered it online.
It looks very expensive and is surprisingly comfortable which I really didn't expect.

I am a very, very picky person. I started looking for a sofa for my mini great room (my small formal living room), a year ago. Nothing was the right size, color, or price. I needed something that looked expensive, but wasn't, was a dark enough color to mask dog dirt stains but light enough to pop on my espresso colored floors, that would fit the confinements of my space, as well as compliment my modern/antique/glamour style. The charcoal cape sofa was perfect! I measured out the sofa with painters tape along the floor and wall, so I knew the size was perfect for me. The color is a lovely warm gray shade as well. It is a stiff couch, however that is what I wanted for my formal room. I personally think it is fairly nice to lay too. However I would not encourage children to jump on it or wrestle on it. I do not think it is built to handle that type of stress. Assembly was a snap! My boyfriend and I assembled it in about 30 minutes, including the unpacking process. The sofa was delivered right on time, undamaged, and with all the necessary pieces. This is my FIRST Overstock purchase, and I am utterly thrilled with my experience! I am already making my wishlist for what to purchase next.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Looks much more expensive than it actually costs. perfect great room or formal room piece.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
My husband is putting this together as I am writing this and he is cursing. He made me look up past reviews because he wanted to make sure he wasn't the only person that had a hard time with it. He's been working on it for 2 hours and said he would never let me buy a couch online that he has to put together again! I think the couch looks good in pieces as I haven't seen it assembled quite yet. The screws will not line up and we cannot tighten them. Yes, the couch looks nice so far but have a beer or some wine nearby to take the stress away of the assembly. Kudos to the senior citizen who put it together on his own in an hour and a half. I don't believe it.
The sofa is very pretty and perfect for a small space. We searched every major store in Columbia for a modern looking couch, and couldn't find one for less than $1000, so we were happy to find this one online.
It would fit three thin people somewhat comfortably, a 5.5ft person could take a nap on fetal position. The color is accurate. It was delivered as expected at our front door.
The wood underneat does not seem to be the best quality, but this is the first sofa I've ever bought.. so this may be usual.
We are not very handy, which may explain why it took us about 5 hours to put it together, the arms were a huge challenge; all the parts fit, it is just very difficult to find the right angle to make some of the bolts fit (maybe there is a trick?) We don't really know how we made it work.
ok, so i read the complaints about the difficulty of putting this puppy together and said to heck with that. The sofa is sexy and I want her! IT IS A COMPLETE PAIN IN THE TUSH! my children heard a few choice words as i struggled to connect pieces together. Aside from that drama, i love the sofa. It is very firm, but that is what i needed. It is grey, but leans more toward blue-ish grey than plain old grey. I totally love it! Just know that when you open that package, open your patience, youll need them putting it together!
Hello couchobsessed, I'm sorry it looks like this is the only color we have available. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 4, 2014
Some of the reviews mentioned Velcro on the back. In my room you will walk in looking at the back of the sofa; which is why I wanted to lower, smaller piece. Is the Velcro visible on the back? I also am looking for a darker grey sofa. It can lean green or blue, just needs to balance another larger black piece in the room. Can you give your interpretation of the color please? Thanks.kingsherpa on May 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us kingsherpa. The Velcro is on the back of the back cushion to keep it from falling off the couch. The color is straight grey. Look at item 16076375, it is darker. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on May 7, 2014
Hi. I live in a third floor walk up apartment so I have been finding a lot of difficulty finding a sofa that we can get through the stairwell. This says it comes in 2 pieces-could you please specify the dimensions of the 2 boxes that it comes in so I can know if it will fit? Thanks for your time.mort29 on Apr 6, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi mort29, we were able to verify this information with our support team. The first box is 13 x 26 x 73 and 54lbs. The second box measures 27 x 19 x 65 67lbs. Please keep in mind you can always remove the carton where it was received and take the smaller parts upstairs without the carton. If you choose to do this you should carefully examine the pieces when taking it out of the carton and keep the carton in tack for returning if needed. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 8, 2014
I too live on the top floor. It was easy to get into my apartment because it is longer the the average sofa. I love mine because it fits much better into a small space.twinkitty on Apr 28, 2014
Hi andiisaacs1, unfortunately we do not provide swatches at the moment. We apologize fro the inconvenience. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 25, 2014
Hi I thinking of buying this sofa but..........i hate material that clingy of catches on ever thing.it look like it has a velvet plush like feel to it.could anybody tell me how it feels? Also is it a soft sit or firm.i want to be able to lay on it and watch tv.thanksneally1966 on Mar 22, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi neally1966, the fabric is made of polyester which is not too clingy or plush. This should feel just right for you. For more insight please refer to the reviews left by other customers to get a better idea of the feel. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 24, 2014
It is not velvet and feels more like a heavy linen and has a very firm fit. I like mine because I live in a small apartment and this sofa is much smaller than my old one.twinkitty on Apr 1, 2014
Hi norahs12switzer, this tufted couch has tight seating. It is made of polyester fabric therefore does have some give. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 21, 2014
Hello! I ordered this couch and put it together just today, and it sits well depending on how big the people sitting on it are. It seats two people very comfortably and can seat 3 but it will make for a tighter fit. Overall though it is a fantastic couch, just do not expect anything very large.moonpie07 on Mar 20, 2014

Before ordering I'd just like to confirm that this sofa does not have any fire retardant and that all the wood is 100% solid wood.nyc246 on Jan 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
All of our upholstery vendor’s comply with the California flame retardant regulations on the foam.
Upholstery fabrics are not required to be treated, therefore the chemical TDCPP is not present in our imported products.
We have law labels affixed to each upholstered product from all factories. Here is an example of what is normally printed on the labels.
"The legs on this sofa are 100% solid hardwood but the inner frame is usually a mixture of solid wood and plywood (P2). Normally all of our chairs and sofas have solid hardwood legs but the inner frames may be a mix of solid wood and plywood."
