    Verified Purchase

    This velvet sofa is adorable and fit perfectly into my living room. I was attracted to it because of its somewhat retro, classic look. The cushion covers are removable so it's easy to dry clean.

    Didn't give 5 stars because the legs were difficult to install.

  • Not grey
    Verified Purchase

    I was super bummed when my couch arrived and it was a dark lavender. The couch itself is beautiful, but not a true grey. Do not buy this if you're looking for GREY. You won't be happy. We will be returning.

    It took a while for me to actually get this couch. The first one was damaged in shipping, but overstock sent another out. The color description is accurate, it is grey. Already knowing how fabric tends to look, I wasn't shocked when I got it. I would consider this more of a "Mink" color, it is grey, but has undertones of purples and browns. Since the fabric is velvet, it really does change color and look different depending on your wall color. The light reflection will make this look lighter during the day or when the over head lights are on. the couch is sturdy, and easy to put together. Just screwing in 5 legs. The style is fabulous! And the couch is comfortable.... I like my couches a little firm, and this couch is that. One thing I noticed is that one of the tufted buttons is missing at the top....I refuse to get a new couch over this so I will be contacting them to see if I can't get a new button. If not, I will just remove one of the buttons that are lower and put it in the missing place. As the missing one was towards the top of the couch. Over all, for a inexpensive couch...this is a great one, and good quality. Fabric is nice pile.

  • Eye catching, elegant sofa
    Verified Purchase

    I was very impressed with this sofa. It looks so elegant until you don't even want to sit in it. Yet, it is very comfortable and inviting. The grey color is striking and makes the living room look like a showroom.

  • Quite distinctly purple
    Verified Purchase

    I wish Overstock let me include a photo with this review. The couch is purple. I have a grey cat, when he sits on it, he doesn't even remotely match it, because he's not a purple cat. It's a great looking sofa, but it definitely leans very, very cool - so it's been a struggle trying to fit it in with our warmer color scheme and I'm having to buy all new accessories and a new area rug to try to make it work. The pictures online of this thing vary wildly in color, so much that I'm guessing they had a separate lot that came out significantly more purple than the rest. I love the couch, but don't buy it if you're looking for the warm grey color in the picture, you'll be disappointed. To give you a realistic view of the couch, Google image search for "barrister velvet sofa" - most of the pictures are of this grey sofa, but a few of them are distinctly more purple -hued, those are what this sofa looks like in real life. I hope this helps!

  • Lovely SOFA
    Verified Purchase

    I received this sofa within 3 weeks of ordering it (CA-->NY). Thanks to previous reviews regarding delivery concerns, I was on top of the delivery company and did not have any issues with scheduling the delivery of the sofa. The sofa arrived with some damage to the lining in the bottom, but I didn't care to initiate a return, and it didn't bother me too much in any case. The sofa was brought in by the delivery guys and set up in less than 10 minutes. It is GORGEOUS! The gray shades from dove gray to pewter to slate to almost black. The black piping looks contrasty and gives the sofa an expensive look. I have it in a room with primarily white and teal accents and it fits in beautifully. The seats are firm but comfortable and spring right back into shape with minimal creases. I will highly recommend this for a transitional decor.

  • Even better in person
    Verified Purchase

    Initially we were concerned about the quality of this couch, largely based on the low quality pictures. However in person it is gorgeous and definitely high quality! We also ordered the matching chair and together they look amazing in our living room. Be aware, the grey has a very subtle purple tint to it which you can't pick up very well in the image. This works beautifully in our home but is something you should be aware of. Like I said, it IS subtle though.
