This loveseat was a steal. It is not bonded, but 100% full leather with grain pattern visible when you look up close at the leather, not easily found these days on Overstock or any other of those Showroom stores. Everything these days is bonded which means split leather or only half the width of the piece of leather because it has been separated to be used twice, sometimes 4 times, with a polyester backing, to make furniture. I know because I am replacing a loveseat that I bought from Overstock about seven years ago that hardly anyone ever used until I started using it as my sitting place to do my homework. The paint (I though it was dyed leather) started to flake off and it was still the same color underneath but they paint it to give it that lustrous sheen that draws you in to purchase it. Back then, no one had to tell you if it was bonded or split leather but now, always make sure before you buy. It makes a huge difference in longevity. Anyways, this piece looks great but because the grain shows through and it is not so perfectly smooth and the advertisement said it was taniline-dyed which means through the whole piece so even it you get a scratch or something the color will still be the same. Another thing about bonded leather, once you get a little tear, it is all over. It is unrepairable according to the leather repair experts. Its the polyester backing and the thinness of the leather that makes it so. That is why all of a sudden such wonder full pieces of furniture that used to be $2000 for a chair are now $350 - $500. You get what you pay for. It's nearly impossible to find items like this that are 100% leather so when I see it, I buy. This piece is all that and more. It is a great find you cannot get for the price anywhere else, I guarantee it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was a perfect match
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a very high quality and should be expensive piece of furniture. Wonderful piece.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was 100% true. I was skeptical that it would be 100% leather and dyed through and through but it is and it is a gorgeous piece for any place in your house. This was easy to put together and is not a throw away pice of furniture after seven years if you take care of the leather. It will last you a lifetime.
This loveseat had a 4" crack in the wood and they tried to fix it with epoxy. There was no mention in the description that this product was an irregular, damaged or factory variant. If the repair job wasnt so poor, I might not be so angry. The chair itself is uncomfortable to sit in for more than 20 minutes at a time as the seat bottom is too arched.

The box was huge and I was intimidated by having to put this together. But it came in 3 pieces. The instructions were easy to follow. A wrench is included (screwdriver isn't!). I was able to put it together in an hour. I'm obviously not gifted with DIY projects but I was proud of myself once it was put together. There are staples, rough edges/wood, Velcro so be careful as you assemble. The color shown is accurate. I love this red because it really brings out everything in the room and compliments the color scheme. It's not a comfy loveseat so it's not really for lounging. But asthetically, it is great. Also it's sturdy, solid, and great quality. Thank you, Overstock! It took 3 business days to receive it.

Scarred leather in 2 places and chipped wood leg, but that is the manufacturer not OSTK, also the holes didn't line up easily when assembly came down to crunch time

I purchased this loveseat to go with a chair and storage bench in the same color. What a treat. I get compliments from everyone including my son's girlfriend who sees it. It fits perfectly into a tight space and blends with a contemporary or even a modern decor.

I was looking for an inexpensive sofa to go in a small space in the back. This fit the bill perfectly. It's not the most comfortable sofa to sit on, but it looks great, was easy to assemble and is a really pretty deep red color. This is the 2nd one I've purchased from Overstock since my cat used the first one as a scratching post. Hopefully he's over that phase of his life!
I purchased this piece of furniture for its size, color, and design and it met satisfied all categories. It was for a relatively small space and looks amazing. It finished off a room of other purchases from Overstock. Several people have commented on it and are shocked at the low price and the quality. The design and previous reviews let me know this would not be a comfortable or relaxing piece of furniture, I must add that it is much more comfortable than I expected.

This couch is very sturdy. Couch is true to color. I bought it as an accent piece and it matches my room perfectly. Not really meant to sit on all day. Great for kids due to its durability. I think it would be more comfortable if it had armrests, but for the price I am satisfied with this purchase.
This love seat is great. The material is durable and niece to sit on. I love it being armless it serves the room well guests slip in and out easily. The color is perfect a true red. The material wipes up easily and it is great for a house with cats. A quick wet wipe before guests arrive and it is ready for guests to sit on, no fur. Good buy. Great accent piece. Comfy too.
