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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
This is a horribly, horribly uncomfortable couch. It's very firm, so unless you like that, this becomes super uncomfortable after about 5 minutes. I struggle to sit on it for much longer and have had to add a lot of cushions to sit on and lean on. It also doesn't look as nice as it does in the photo. The material looks cheaper and because it's small, the style looks a bit strange. I don't think it was worth the money.
Horrible, horrible, horrible!!! I ordered this sofa to go with my contemporary theme, but I regret it! It was a nightmare putting it together, the couch came in all separate pieces. The screws would not fit thru the holes properly since they weren't aligned properly when made. My husband had to buy different screws and try to rig it but I still don't feel comfortable sitting on it bc I'm afraid it'll collapse. The piece looks different in person, more like an olive gray than the picture. I was really disappointed buying this!!
The sofa is just the right fit for the space.I like the quality for the price.you must know that there is some assemble required.A power drill works better than doing it by hand.I must tell you that it comes it two big boxes that you will have to deal with.

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."
