I saw this couch on Overstock.com and read the reviews so decided to take a chance on purchasing furniture on line. I have never done that before, and I was very pleased. The couch came a full week before I thought it would, it was packaged fairly well. I was able to take the pieces out of their boxes (I think there were 3) and put it together myself with some simple household tools (I am a 55 year old woman) The directions are not the best, but it is so simple to put together I didn't have a problem. The quality of construction is good, I have seen so much worse. The color is very dark, almost black as previous reviewers stated, but for us that was perfect. The couch is very tight and stiff which is what I wanted as any soft furniture hurts my back, it also sits high which is perfect for ease of getting up. We have a small living room and this couch fits perfectly in our space, couldn't be happier!
Very disappointed in this product. Seat back & seat are one piece construction - not especially well padded fake leather stapled to cheap plywood. Was shocked at the construction. I was not expecting a super high quality construction at the price, but was really let down by this. The imitation leather is substandard quality and was damaged in the box. Had I kept it, I would not have expected this piece to stand up to stand up to much use. Assembly is required - ships with seat & back as one piece - both arms & the feet need to be attached. Returned immediately for a refund.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color match is accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor construction, low quality wood and fake leather
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Online description is a bit misleading in terms of quality of item
I knew the dimensions of the loveseat for the width and depth, though did not measure for height and was a tad disappointed when I got it as to how short it was. That is my mistake. I am disppointed in how flimsy the product seems. I can feel the wood underneath that it is made of, which seems to be pretty thin boards. I can't believe I paid what I paid for it, for I think I could have received a better product somewhere else. Thus, I will never be purchasing furniture on this site again. I was happy with how quickly the product was delivered.
I was very disappointed in the life of this loveseat which was purchased for an office. It is very affordable and attractive, as pictured; however, after 3 years, one of the screws gave way and the frame broke (when someone was getting up from sitting in it), leaving the loveseat broken and unable to be fixed.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. cleverly constructed, but only held together with few screws which did not hold up over time.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate
this is fine for a kids rec room, but I would not recommend it for your tv room or den. Not at all comfortable.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? ok
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. ok for the price
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? fairly accurate
Had this in our office for twenty days, the third time someone sat on it the arm completely broke. No way to fix it. Contacted OS and was told to mail it back, we had already thrown this HUGE box away, so now I am stuck with it. (Had to put it together and wasnt paying someone to take it apart and find boxes to mail back). DO NOT purchase this cheap furniture.
4 one inch brackets with 1/2 in screws hold this together! if you have a place where this is to be seen and not sat on, then its perfect. Also never throw away the boxes to anything you buy from os.com cause they wont help get it picked up unless you have the box!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what crap. lesson #1, buy a sofa from a store, not online!
I bought this love seat about 3 or 4 years ago. We have small children and I bought it because I wanted a place for us to cuddle up and read as well as because it looked easy to clean. The vinyl covering only lasted about 2 years of constant use by toddlers. After that, the vinyl started tearing and peeling. So, after taking an upholstery class and realizing that the design of the product was relatively simple to recover, I reupholstered the love seat. The interior of this sofa is VERY cheap, thin plywood. I do not believe it would withstand another reupholstering because I think the wood will simply fall apart if I try it again.
Composition of this item is cheap and there is minimal hardware holding it together. Disappointing
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. plywood and minimal hardware
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? not what one would expect
It's a doctor's office type of loveseat. It's a great lovechair that I use as a main couch, and I'm expecting it to last about 2 year's or so, in great condition. It would probably last a lot longer if not used daily. I'm very happy with the look, however
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Thin leather-like but good
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
Really not the couch for us. Even thought I read all the reviews and the measurements, I was shocked at how tiny the loveseat is once put together. Its short and tiny, almost like a large charge. Will wind up putting it in our kids room rather than living room. Would be a good fit for a dorm maybe, but not a living room.
If you are looking for a small loveseat, then this is it. However, it was just a little smaller than we wanted. We kept it, but we are still in need of a larger loveseat. This one is more like something you would see in a doctor's office.
BOUGHT THIS LOVE SEAT FOR MY DAUGHTER. SHE LIVES IN A "TINY" STUDIO IN D.C. THIS WAS THE PERFECT SIZE AND REALLY PUT A LITTLE STYLE IN HER STUDIO APARTMENT. SHE IS CERTAINLY NOT HANDY ABOUT PUTTING THINGS TOGETHER, SO SHE DID HAVE TO GET SOME HELP BUT SAID IT DID NOT TAKE LONG. I SAW THE LOVESEAT LAST WEEK-END MYSELF AND WAS REALLY IMPRESSED-IT LOOKS GREAT!!! HAVING THINGS SHIPPED TO HER DOOR IS WONDERFUL AS SHE USES THE METRO AS HER TRANSPORTATION. THIS COULD NOT HAVE WORKED OUT BETTER!!
This piece arrived in a timely fashion. I went with my gut on this love seat for our living room that was still being remodeled. Our space is limited so I wanted to go with smaller furniture. This love seat is perfect for the small space but it is quite firm, not as cozy as I would like. I'll get over it, this love seat looks fabulous and I have paired it with armless tapered chairs. I love the new look.
We had purchased this love seat to be used in our living room. We received it a week after we ordered it and the package came in all beat up. The love seat was not damaged. We assemble it in 20 min (without the instructions), and when it was out together my husband and I both sat on it and almost broke our backs. It is definitely not a functional seat. If you are going to use it for looks than this chair may be for you. I would NEVER recommend it as a everyday love seat, especially if you like to entertain guests, they will leave!!
After reading the reviews, I purchased this piece and love it. It's very nice and perfect for a den or office. The quality is wonderful, the price is awesome, and the color is great and goes with everything. It's a very dark chocolate. Easy assembly. Highly recommend...
I would have once considered shopping for furniture online as far-fetched. But, after this experience, I will consider this as viable as "in person." Between the product description and reviews, I had a good sense of what I was buying. It was confirmed when the product arrived. And it arrived very promptly.Color a very dark brown, almost mistaken for black. You sit in alert, not kicked-back. Feels good though if this is what you want.Took about a 1/2 hour to assemble.
