The set pretty much lives up to expectations- it's comfortable in a firm way- not one of those couches you melt into. Also, if you remove the back pillows, there's a very hard ledge above the cushions that can feel really uncomfortable if your body brushes against it. My real concern was with the color. In the pictures, the couch is much more neutral- a yellowish-beige. In reality, it's a very plain brown. I know Overstock had know way of knowing I was really counting on that neutrality (I had alternate pillow covers to make the sofa go with the rest of my decor), but because I was, it really is kind of unfortunate. I'm still keeping the sofa, but it's only because it's such a hassle to ship it back (I'm on a fourth floor walk-up) and after three months of use, it does seem both sturdy and comfortable. The throw pillows give it some versatility as well. I'm giving it a high score, because I know the color won't be as important to all customers, and in fact, some people are probably happier to hear that it's a different shade. I did want to mention that the customer service with Overstock was excellent. It's the first time I ordered through them, and there were some problems with the third party delivery service who transported the sofa set to me. However, Overstock's attention and resolution of the matter was truly exemplary. I will definitely order from them again; just maybe not something so bulky/expensive/about which I'm so particular.

I was a little skeptical buying a sofa set off of the internet. Shop online often, but this was big purchase and it wouldn't be easy to just ship it back to Overstock if it didn't work out. Anyway, I read the previous reviews and trusted what they said. I must say that I'm very happy with this purchase. The sofa set is very comfortable and the color works great in my living room. The only thing I must say is that the couch is a little more brown than the picture shows...just a little. WIth that being said, I've received numerous compliments on the couch and I love the fact that the pillows are not attached. You can play around with the ones that come with the set, or you can buy others to change up the look. I would not hesitate buying this if you're looking for a comfortable sofa set with some flare. Enjoy...
I love this sofa and loveseat set. It has an eccentric style which fits well into my eclectic living room and is so incredibly comfortable. I had to get rid of a 25-year old microfiber couch that was my absolute favorite crash site. However, this Braxston sofa set is just as inviting and comfortable. It is definitely our new favorite crash site. The color is a lot more warmer than the site and I love it because it's great to decorate around. The quality is definitely very good, you can feel it at one sit. Don't need to read my review, perhaps you should get one and see for yourself. Even my 17 year old daughter loves it and she's very difficult to please.
All I can say is WOW! I saw this set when looking for ideas online before I bought from local furniture stores, But after seeing the other reviews for this unit, and seeing what was offered locally, I thought I'd take a chance. Glad I did. It is a far better looking match for my decor than I expected. Fit's perfectly under the window I located the sofa in front of and along the side wall in my living room where I placed the love seat. One precaution is that it is well packaged in foam, plastic sheeting and cardboard overwrap, so the shipping package is much larger and heavier than the dimensions given. We had to remove it from the cardboard before it would fit through my door, and even then had to take out one of my sliding doors to the deck to get it into the house...it wouldn't go around the corner from the front hall into my living room with all the foam and plastic on it. If we had removed the foam and plastic outside the house, it would have probably fit through the front door. As I mentioned above, the ad says that it comes with 4 pillows...well, actually it comes with 12 pillows, of 4 different styles and patterns, just as shown in the photo in the ad. I can't see using them all on the furniture, so I'll use the extra pillows on the futon I have in my guest room, as they certainly don't all fit on the sofa and leave room for people as well! In conclusion, it is much more than I expected, but exactly what I need! And the firmness and comfort is perfect...not soft and squishy like some of these sofas are these days, and not as hard as a rock. Kinda the Goldilocks solution!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Slightly darker in real life, but after reading other reviews it was exacty as expected. Color and texture were perfect for my application.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Appears to be top of the line...better than a lot of sofas I've seen in local stores.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Almost...says it came with 4 pillows, but there are 4 different STYLES of pillows, 12 pillows in all!
I considered buying a new couch for YEARS before finally just going for it, and I'm so happy that I did! It's the perfect set for my living room. It's comfy as can be, and I actually really like the variation pillows setting and how they are not fixed like other sofa sets, because I bought extra pillows in different color variation so that I can change up the look every now and then. It gives you the perfect place to rest your arm while lounging on it. The color is exactly as shown on the site. The shipping only took about 3 weeks. I'm really happy with everything about it, and I cannot WAIT to buy more stuff with Overstock.
