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.
The perfect touch to our living room. I thought it would be more for show than anything but it's actually quite comfortable. We sit on it all the time. If you'd like a contemporary couch which is simply stated, this is the way to go.
I live in a small apartment so I ordered this sofa to replace the huge 89" sofa I had. 70" is so much better and I love the color. I've ordered complimentary chairs and pillows to go with it. The only reason that I did not give it five stars is that it is very difficult to assemble the wooded dowels were almost impossible to line up. Now that it is all put together I love it.
This is a darling little sofa for a small space. I was really attracted to the design and knew it would be a fantastic building block as an eye catcher in the small room in my apartment. The pillows that come with it are not my style (but I knew that from the photo) and instead I layered multiple embroidered/patterned/ colored pillow along the back of it. STUNNING. I get a lot of compliments on it and I really like the firmness of the sofa. My only complaint is that IT IS A PUP TO ASSEMBLE. I would have given this 5 stars if not for the pain of putting it together. If you can get over the aggravation of a difficult assembly, then put this in your cart. I am glad I did.
I was looking for a moderate length, stylish, inexpensive couch for our living room because I plan on only having it temporarily. For the value I was looking at a futon or a very low cost couch, and this one was the coolest out of anything in the price range. It looks exactly like it does in the photo. It comes in two boxes so you don't have to pay a freight charge which is nice, AND I received both boxes in 2 days. The couch is perfect for us because it fits great in our small living room, but not so small that it looks loveseat-ish or awkward. It looks like an nice, grown up couch.
Downfall/tip- The top is very hard to sit and I would recommend decorating with lots of cushy pillows and throws. Style is modern however the couch looks like it's missing the bottom seated and back cushions because of the way it's designed.
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

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."
