I love the way this sofa looks. The color and fabric was better than I expected. It looks rich and warm. I just love it. Assembly was a little bit difficult when it came to placing the backs onto the frame, but, all in all, it was not that bad. If you decide to get this sofa, the cushions and covers for them come seperated, so, the first thing I wish I would have done, and highly recommend, is to put the covers on the cushions right away. The cushions come flat, (air sucked and tucked in plastic wrappings). After a few hours, once removed from the plastic, they inflate making it more difficult to put covers on cushions.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I ordered smoke and it was perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of the sofa was good. It isn't for everyday use, more for occasional use. I am using it in my parlor, which does not get much use.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I have been through several sofas and love seats over the past few years trying to find the perfect one for our family room. It is a small, very oddly shaped room and has been difficult to furnish For the first time, I can say a love seat fits perfectly in the room. We bought this one thinking that, even if it only lasted a year or two, the price was so good that we wouldn't be losing out. We are pleasantly surprised with the quality and appearance of this product. Other reviews have said the cushions are too firm but, since I have a bad back, I was looking for firm. At first we thought that the cushions were NOT firm and there had been a mistake. However, after two days, the cushions reached their maximum expansion and are very comfortable. I would definitely look for this product again should I need more furniture.
We received this loveseat in two boxes. NO tools required, a step by step manual and also a website of how exactly to put the loveseat together. Extremely well-built and we are so please with the piece. Very comfortable and we would highly recommend this piece. The manufacturer is correct that you need two people to assemble, NOT because difficult, just to help keep things aligned and to also put to furniture fabric onto the cushions, etc. We love it and we would not hesitate to purchase another piece. We had at the same time purchased the matching ottoman.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is much nicer than the online color showed. It is a "Putty Grey" very neutral and very attractive
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was extremely high quality craftsmenship and also the fabric.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The site was very accurate
Loveseat came in two boxes shipped by UPS. Purchased on 6/13 and was delivered by 6/19. Very well wrapped and all pieces were there. Rich chocolate look and the material is of good quality. I read were it took someone a litte over an hour to assemble. Took me longer (typical man, "I don't need no stinking instructions!).
Two issues: Being 6 foot 3, the loveseat seems short on the caboose to leg ratio. Also one of the holes that needs to have a screw inserted was about 0.5 inches off. This was on the arm side. Since everything else is in perfect place I decided it was not my fault from missing something. Due to the velcro closings and the overall good construction, the arm seems stable. Will monitor the arm as I go forth and will make adjustments if necessary. These small minuses prevent me from giving 5 stars but would recommend it to anyone looking for a small but nice loveseat at a good price
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color darker than picture.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good Quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very
UPS delivered this to me today (fast shipping!), 2 nice size boxes. I opened, took it all out, packaged extremely well, all pieces were there, I put it together all by my lonesome and I'm a petite 50+ female and I got it together just fine with no help! Just read the instructions, look at the pieces so you know which arm goes where, which back side goes where, how to line up the two bases etc., take your time, think about what you're doing, work at it, don't get frustrated, it goes together fine! I made use of the white packing material and laid it out over the living room tile as to not get the couch pieces dirty, it worked well, so glad I had it. The loveseat could not be made any better, all the pieces lined up, the screw holes were in the correct places, the material is soft and velvety, the color is beautiful (smoke), better than the photo, a rich medium gray, so very happy am I, this is so much better than I thought it would be, it's looks like an expensive piece of furniture, bravo to the company that makes it! I read other reviews before I started and they were helpful, like soon as you cut open the cushion stuffings, put them right into the seat and back cushions because they expand really fast, it was funny how they pop up soon as you cut the packaging open! Pull and stretch the fabric to meet the underneath velcro for the arms and back of sofa, it all goes where it should. I laid down on it (I'm 5 ft tall, using the arms too the loveseat is fine for me to stretch out on) to rest after I had finished and it could not be more comfortable, though it says the cushions may expand some more. It's not soft, not too firm, if they get firmer that's fine with me. Thank you Overstock for such a wonderfully, high quality loveseat at such a great price, I highly recommend!
While it does say assembly required, I quess I took too much for granted. It arrived in two boxes that were 32"x32" and very heavy. It is literally a do it yourself couch. Many of the screw holes did not line up without a lot of pushing and pulling. The fabric is not anything like the picture. It is a cheap microfiber. the fabric is not long enough to cover the back so it would have to go against a wall. There is a small hole in one arm on the seam. It took me about and 1-1/2 to put it together myself. Having 2 people would have made it faster. The cushions come compacted to about an inch. Yes, they do plump up but how good could the foam be if you can compress it to 1". Overall very disappointing. I am requesting a full refund. This is not typical of Overstock. I have always been extremely pleased with anything I have ordered.
I've never written a review for any product, but unfortunately my experience with this item and with Sofab has led me to do so as a last resort. My hope is that someone from the company sees this review and that it will finally prompt them to assist us so that we don't have to return the item.
For starters, one of the boxes arrived damaged and this resulted in the male seat post on the back of one of the seat boxes being slightly bent.
When my husband and I went to assemble the product, we got as far as Step 7 - attaching the sofa backs. We are two very handy people, but this step has us stumped. It is not possible to attach the side slide bracket on the sofa backs with the slide brackets on the sofa arms. The slide brackets are the same size and therefore do not slide into each other as is suggested by the instructions. The center female back connectors do attach to the male seat posts, but this is not sufficient to attach the whole sofa back to seat box. Either we are really missing something or we received a defective product.
Upon realizing that we could not finish assembling the loveseat, I immediately contacted Sofab by phone (left about half a dozen messages for 3-4 different people) and also emailed the customer service (as is recommended in the assembly instructions) - firstname.lastname@example.org - with specific details about the problem and also pictures. Nearly two weeks have passed and I still have not received any kind of response.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of response from Sofab, I will have to return this item and will never purchase anything from Sofab again. Too bad, as we were very much looking forward to using this loveseat.
I am 70 years old and put this together myself...so you know it is easy! I like it, but the only problem it is not anywhere the color shown in the picture. It is dark brown. I bought a gray rug at the same time and nowhere close in color. Delivery was just as promised.
This does take some mad engineering skills to put together. I had to have our maintenance man put this together. The trick is to put the cushions immediately into their covers, as they expand rapidly once their vacuum sealed packages are opened. It is nice looking - since I am rather short, I lay down on it at night while watching TV. For sitting, it takes all body types. It is a good occasional piece; for a living room, you'll probably want a sofa as well. It is small and lightly scaled - perfect for my small living room.
This would be a great love seat for anyone with kids and dogs. Spills and slobber wipe right off. It takes a beating and still stays comfy. It was easy to put together as long as I read the directions and followed the steps. No problems with it at all.

More easily accomplished with two people. I'm 50 yrs old and moderately fit and was able to get it assembled in just under 1.5 hrs, but it would have gone by much more quickly with a second person.justme7 on Jul 23, 2014
You are literally building the whole couch. It comes in about 8 pieces. You put the pieces together with big screws. No tools required. I put it together myself but having two people would have made it easier. Not all the screw hole lined up and I had to do a lot of pulling and pushing.dp401 on Sep 4, 2014

I'm pretty sure it is MDF in the internal parts. It is very sturdy and heavy but easy to assemble.marci66 on Aug 6, 2013
Which color is shown in the picture? It looks to be lighter than the chocolate and the smoke, but those are the only options.johnoh123 on Jul 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello johnoh123, unfortunately this item is out of stock. We currently do not have inventory to check, and cannot guarantee the item will be restocked.

When I take pictures of my Chocolate colored love seat, they look grey just like the pillow. The real color is a true chocolate.marci66 on Aug 6, 2013
It's a warm grey. definitely not green.rjg2 on Dec 24, 2013
Hi, I understand that the cushions are not attached to the main body of the sofa but is it possible to zip off the cushion covers for machine washing? Thanks.claras on Jun 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello claras, yes, these cushions have zippers for removing the covers. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 27, 2013
Hello cchocolatetears, Maintenance and care is as follows: Avoid extended exposure to direct sunlight. Do not leave spills unattended. Blot spills and stains with a wet, colorfast cloth. Air dry.
While our fabrics are resistant to stains, certain substances will leave a permanent mark. Blood, Ink and Mustard are a few bad offenders.
Feel free to apply a fabric protector such as Scotchgard. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on May 29, 2013
