After having the loveseat for 2 weeks, I wanted to give my thoughts. The item was packaged extremely well - all parts arrived unscathed from UPS. Assembly took about 70 minutes (including unpacking) by myself using an electric screwdriver. The only issue I had is that there's a step where you had to screw the back-piece to the bottom-piece via 2-screws. I simply couldn't complete that step because the holes were about 1-cm mis-aligned. After 20 minutes, I decided to just skip the step and proceed to the next-step - which was screwing the bottom piece and back piece to the wooden frame. So currently, the bottom and back piece are just being held together by the wood frame; but it seems like it shouldn't be an issue as the wooden frame is pretty solid. For the loveseat, the color is just as expected. It is beige/light-gray and there's a really good textured-weave to it (i.e. - it isn't solid beige/light-gray color). The color of the wooden frame however, is a lot lighter in person when lots of sunlight is bathing my apartment. I took the photo on a cloudy day so the color of the frame looks similar to that of the stock-photos. I only bought the loveseat because I thought the cushion was solid foam (like how ordinary sofas are) as Overstock listed the spec's as "1.8 inch density CORE foam". This loveseat is actually like a futon that you get at IKEA because the cusion is actually metal-spring on the underside, and a layer of foam is layered on top of it. The problem with springs is, if one if goes bad (i.e. dislodges from the frame), then the loveseat will be messed up as there'd just be a huge dent where spring had dislodged (from past experience on cheap IKEA futons). The loveseat looks really nice/modern however and makes me smile when i get home from work everyday. As seen in my photo, I also bought the matching INK+IVY blaze coffee and end table and it looks really good together. The only annoyance with using the loveseat is that when my 125-lb body sits on it, it makes a subtle crinkly sound (akin to when you crinkle a plastic shopping bag) - giving off a cheap vibe. I have no clue what it is and confirmed there's nothing loose in the interior of the loveseat. The loveseat is also very firm compared to my old traditional sofa and I actually have to get up every 30 minutes to take a break from it.
This item is absolutely perfect with the matching sideboard. I now want to buy all the Lancaster pieces from Ink & Ivy now that I own this one. I love it that much!
LOVE THIS Ink & Ivy Hutch !!! Could not ask for better quality. The wood is absloutely beautiful. This has quickly become one of my favorite pieces of furniture !!! Husband liked it as much and had me order the Sideboard to match !!!
The Chair sits inside the entry area of my home, the perfect size and color that matched the decor'; a quiet beige rather than cream. I did not find the chair complicated to assemble and all pieces were included.. I appreciate Ink+Ivy sleek style furniture. I highly recommend.
