  • Fabric not durable

    I have to agree with the reviewer that mentioned the fabric was looking shabby after a while. Don't get me wrong this is one very good-looking sofa and we always receive compliments on it and questions about where we got it. But unfortunately after under a year of owning it the fabric is already looking very tired and worn, and coming apart at the seams/corners of the sofa (even though we rarely have people over and no children, just regular use) . It's not a good look obviously, and we've had to make do for now and use throws and pillows to add some life back to it. We'll be living with it for another year , but we're going to have to replace it after that. Someone suggested re-upholstering it with a better fabric, and I suppose you could considering the general construction of the sofa is pretty solid. But I just don't expect to pay this price and have to re-upholster after a year's use. it just doesn't make sense, and I might as well have bought something pricier and not have to worry about all that.

  • CHEAP Fabric!

    This is an amended review based on 6 months of use. This fabric already lloks like it is 10 years old. The seat cushion has already developed dips where you sit. If you are buying it just to look at.....then good. If will be very disappointed. After 6 months what kind of service do you think you will get?

  • Great Retro Sofa
    Verified Purchase

    I was nervous about ordering a major piece of furniture online, but I'm glad I took the chance. The sofa is well made and the cushions don't become mushy after hours of sitting like many foam cushion sofas do. The cushions are firm, but not uncomfortable --I've fallen asleep on it several times. The two delivery people were very professional and friendly. Love the color. Love the retro look.

  • Wow! This one exceeded my expectations!
    Verified Purchase

    Well, well...THIS one didn't disappoint! Now, I've gotten things from Overstock that--upon arrival--led me to shrug and feel "Meh" about the item. I mean, you get what you pay for, right? I've even had furniture from O arrive smashed to bits, and had to return it immediately. That was disappointing as all get out. So, when--after a futile search of all furniture suppliers in my backwater didn't turn up anything with a good Mid Century Modern vibe--I cast caution to the winds and ordered this sofa, sight unseen. It is gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Sturdy, well built, heavy (I can't lift the end, and I'm pretty strong; it slides on carpet easily, though, for cleaning), with lovely little details that show the company cares: for instance, there are little metal rings on the underside of the seat cushion that attach to closed hooks on elastic tethers (feel around between the seat back and the undercushion; they're there) so that the long, long cushion doesn't flip up on one end, when someone sits on the other. The fabric seems sturdy, the sofa arrived without a scratch on it, and even the seat cushion seems better than average (full disclosure: it's NOT super heavy duty, like I've special ordered on sofas in the past--at a cost. It is better than average, however. But I'd imagine after many years I might want to get the seat re-cushioned, if it starts to sag...That wouldn't be a problem, as the cover unzips and I could just take the entire seat into an upholsterer.) And it is COMFORTABLE! I was worried I might be sacrificing comfort for style, but the seat back is high enough to provide good support (the little black legs lift the entire thing off the floor enough to give it that MCM look, but without the MCM low, low back problems), and it's so long--98"--that there's room for one person to recline and still another to sit, easily. All in all, I love this and recommend it enthusiastically. Now, if only "Mad Men" would come back....

  • Mid Cenury Style; Maxim sofa
    Verified Purchase

    I was a bit nervous about making a sofa purchase online, but the previous reviews helped me over that hump. I love my new sofa! It is stylish yet comfortable, and is the crowing touch on completing my mid century modern living room. It is not hard to move to dust mop under, and I've received many compliments on it. The only drawback to ordering online, is that for an impatient buyer such as I tend to be, the wait to receive it was hard on me, although it was actually delivered before the shipping time estimate. The delivery men were very professional and indeed gave "white glove service". If you are a mid century aficionado, don't hesitate to order this sofa!

  • Good, but could have been great.
    Verified Purchase

    Overall the sofa is exactly what I wanted but a tufting button popped off and that is apparently a $100 dollar fix. Overstock customer care was great, they offered to replace the sofa for me, but I took a different route choosing to fix the sofa rather than wait and additional 8 weeks. Sofa arrived earlier than the estimate and the white glove service was impeccable. I would absolutely recommend this to others.
