This couch arrived in four large boxes that I (5'4" and about 130 pounds) was able to move by myself from the garage to my basement to assemble. Unfortunately, I did not read the box flaps, which said to follow the manual in the box. The manual was at the bottom of each box, under a flap, so since I couldn't find the manual, I just winged it and somehow got everything right!
The pieces were easy to put together, with the ingenious packaging of putting cushions and hardware inside the couch seat. The only thing to note is that you do need to make sure things are aligned properly before tightening screws.
The cushions are velcroed to the seat backs, so they stay in place and they are very squishy and comfortable.
The seating itself is pretty firm. I think I might need to break it in, because you can definitely bounce on it. I thought it was nice for seat support and it's not uncomfortable laying down. Like I said, the back cushions are very squishy, so it kind of evens out. The best part is that every piece comes apart so if I wanted to make this into a two or three seater, I am able to easily. I could even take one piece out and put it by my bed for a bedside reading seat!
I got the dark gray color, which is very versatile and works well for any room. Fits well with both a nautical and industrial decor.
Overall, I think this was a great buy for the price and very versatile for an apartment or smaller home. If you have a large house, I would recommend getting something bigger. For reference, the coffee table in my picture is about 40" long.
We were looking for a sleeper sofa when we stumbled upon this. It's a great couch for our purposes- kids hangout/lounge area. It sits low to the ground but is comfortable. The kids can even sit or lay on the top allowing room for a lot of kids on one couch. We just had our first guest and the foldout to the king size is awesome. Super easy to do and makes a great sized bed. You will need a mattress topper because you'd otherwise feel the separation between the ottomans and couch pieces. Another huge benefit to this piece is its ease of assembly and ability to be moved. I'm a female with a smaller than average build and I was able to get the box to the room I needed it in and put it together by myself. If at any point I need to move it to another room I could also do that myself. Even with its ability to be easily moved, it's very sturdy and is supportive as both a couch and bed. Another bonus is that all pieces have removable, washable slip covers.
I really want to give this futon 5 stars but i gave 4 because some of the screws don't fit properly into the side rails that go into the metal frame (it holds 8 screws total and they are all the same size but the holes in the metal frame wouldn't allow some of them to be screwed in all the way- and i tried over and over again.) Also the two hinges that came with it which attach to the R and L arms were labeled for the wrong arm...but i figured this out without too much time wasted). Another thing is the hinges were 'compressed' a bit and i had to decompress them by pulling them outward in order for the metal frame to reach both hinges and align for the screws (the directions state this sometimes happens- otherwise i would've thought the parts didn't fit). Assembly took about 90 -120 min but was able to do by myself. The final product looks VERY nice and the detail of the skirt makes such a huge difference- it looks more like a couch rather than a futon. The mattress is not hard put actually has bounce to it so it feels quite comfortable. I plan on getting a thick mattress pad for added comfort and protection when guests come over. A great buy compared to the cost of a sofa bed.
Love this sofa. Modern, firm but not too firm, just great solid quality. Overstock worked with manufacturer to ensure item was flame-retardant free which is great because I don't want to sit on something saturated with cancer-causing chemicals. Really happy with this purchase. Got it in oatmeal - it's more a brownish speckled color, slightly grayish but more a warm gray, taupe-like, not a cool gray. I like it and it has become one of the nicest spots in the house to lounge on....
I bought this couch for my loft just as something cute and stylish next to a bookshelf. It fits perfectly and most couches this price aren't very comfortable but this one is! Took two minutes to add the legs and it was ready to go.
I got this for my art studio and it's just adorable! Since this is a new item there were no reviews and with reading other sleeper sofa/futon/daybed reviews, it was hard to really bite the bullet knowing it was such a gamble! This was worth it! The back is upholstered and has zippers to open up for the supportive legs. It's definitely the nicest one of these iceberg ever seen and ALL the legs are wood! It's also super comfortable! so glad I got this! No to assembly: Because I'm an absolute bad ass, I put it together myself and just a heads up: a lot of screws work better without the black piece to go between it and washer.....I'd recommend a second person for ease and time but if you're solo and determined, it can be done.
My hubby and I tend to redecorate every 3-5 years. So, we don't like to spend a lot of money on furniture when we just end up giving it away when we hit a new decorating phase. Thought this sofa looked cute online. Ordered it... and it basically meets expectations! It was packaged well; contained all needed pieces/hardware; and instructions were pretty clear. The only thing that was a tad bit disappointing is the color. The Overstock ad said "cream color" but the sofa we received was taupe (or light brownish/tan). We debated returning it...but decided that the taupe color actually matched our living room. My hubby put this together single-handedly in about 1 hour. All in all - pretty easy stuff. The sofa, once assembled, looks virtually identical to the picture shown. It's a wee bit smaller in real life but it's fine. I would not recommend for someone trying to fill a large room. In terms of comfort, I really like it. I like a more firm sofa that I don't have to struggle to get out of! This sofa has firm cushions but that are comfortable. The back of the sofa is firm, too, but comfortable. The sofa also seems very sturdy. Our kids jumped on it right after being assembled and it was fine! I don't think anyone will notice that this is an RTA (ready to assemble) sofa when they walk in our living room but I also don't think anyone will think we paid $1500 or $2000 for it! All in all, I recommend this to frugal apartment or townhouse dwellers that need a stylish sofa that is comfortable, easy to assemble, and reasonably priced.
I needed a futon for my home office as there isn't enough room to open the door with a regular sofa bed. I was really torn if I should buy a futon of all things sight unseen on the internet, but every one I looked at, even in the more expensive furniture stores were like sitting on concrete or a fireplace grate. Used the 10% off coupon and took a week from California to the east coast. The box was pretty rough as it is kind of thin for something that weighs almost 150#, but I looked it over good and it is in flawless condition. It also is easy to assemble with zero tools although the directions and online video are nearly worthless. After about a half hour of unpacking and assembly I sat on this thing and it is awesome. I just ordered another new couch for my living room two days ago and have tried out many couches over the last few weeks and this thing ranks right up there with the best comfort wise. The cushion/matress is made entirely of coil springs (vacuum packed in a plastic bag) and that makes all the difference in the world compared to the loose fill or hard foam in almost all other futons I have looked at. The fabric is relatively heavy and well put together for something in this price range. Even the two pillows are nice. I laid on it and if I weren't 6'6" l wouldn't mind sleeping on it at all. Mechanism does look a little flimsy, but it only serves to hold up the back and move the cushions to the bed position and back so I think I should hold up. I usually never leave reviews, but decided to since I am so happy with it and maybe would be useful to someone else that may be hesitant about buying it.
I'm extremely disappointed in Overstock and their delivery service. Whoever they contract through in our area was horrible and even though on the phone I was told it would be delivered inside my home, it was dropped on the curb and I was left to find a way to bring it in before it rained. Really unprofessional and for that amount of money, Overstock needs to better accommodate their customers with better delivery services. I will never buy another large item from this company again because of this.
ordering a sofa/futon online takes a leap of faith. shipping was fast and efficient, the packaging well done, and best of all, the futon is a solid piece of furniture and true to the photo. the seating does not have much cushioning, but that is expected for a futon. it was easy to put together and I am pleasantly surprised and happy with my purchase.
This is the first time we have purchased a large piece of furniture online and because there were no reviews on this sofa, we were very hesitant but were in dire need of new furniture and the price was right. It was challenging to pick a color from the online images due to the fact that the colors and textures weren't truly depicted but we took a chance on two mink grey velvet sofas.
We were pleasantly surprised that the order arrived one day ahead of schedule with everything intact. The furniture arrived in several pieces but was packed precisely and well protected. Each piece was very durable and well made. The cushions were packed individually in sealed, compressed plastic.
An allen wrench was the only tool needed to put this furniture together and bolts came pre-attached to furniture. With that said, assembly was not as fast as claimed in video description, especially since the assembly instructions on the first sofa box we opened were packed at the bottom within the last wrapped piece. By this time we had already began assembly ourself but learned that we missed some steps and had to go back several steps. On the second sofa, the instructions were right at the top (go figure) but by then we had mastered assembly.
The slipcovers were packed separately from the sofa itself. At first glance, they appeared to almost have a greenish, olive tint but then in different light they appeared more of a dark silver, almost charcoal color with a definite sheen which I wasn't too sure of but the feel of the fabric was exquisite (very smooth and plush). There is one slipcover piece that covers the backrest, bottom, and armrests of the sofa and individual, zipped covers for each cushion (3 seat cushions and 3 back cushions). Putting the slipcover on for the first time was a challenge since the underside is covered in velcro and tends to stick to every portion of the sofa as it is being put on but once on, fits nicely and stays securely in place due to the velcro holding it in place. The seat cushion covers slip on easily and fit well. The back cushions I had a harder time with since the cushions are much thinner and not as supportive making for a looser fit.
We did find the back cushions a bit flimsy and in need of more support which would also help for a better fit on the back cushions but I think the thinner cushion adds a more relaxed, casual look to the sofa. I will be purchasing some upholstery foam to wrap around the back cushions for more support but only because we prefer extra support. The seat cushion support is perfect. Not to firm not too soft.
All in all, this is a nice, roomy, comfortable sofa for the price and definitely looks like a higher end piece. Although we weren't too sure of the color at first, it is growing on us. I never considered myself the "velvet" type but I think it lends a bit of elegance to an otherwise casual sofa. We are very pleased with our purchase. Now it's time to accessorize!
We wanted a sofa that we could easily change the look - this was the ticket. Sofa comes completely disassembled so if you need to get into a tight spot it's no problem. Need two people to assemble and put on the cover. Both are no problem. The seat cushions are firm and a very tight fit. Back cushions are loose foam chunks - they're okay but we'll be supplementing them with more foam. Once we do that they should keep their shape. We purchased the sofa with the blue linen cover. The color is really nice and true to the pictures. It ships separately from the sofa so don't fret when you don't see it in the box. We also purchased the mink gray velvet cover. It skews a bit to the brown side so if you want gray get the linen. Covers fit superbly. For the price this sofa was perfect for our vacation home. Not sure if I'd want to use it 24/7.
The color of the sofa is a lot darker than what is depicted in these pictures. Its more of a dark turquoise than blue... matter of fact it's not blue at all. But it's a gorgeous color. Wished I could upload pictures here to show the real color.
Well built, fairly easy to put together. Mattress and frame came separately. The mattress is heavy, took two of us to move it around and the delivery person was huffing and puffing at the front door. All of the parts and instructions were in the box.
We are mainly using this as a couch, but wanted the option of additional seating. We bought the queen size, olive fabric, walnut frame. As a couch it is comfortable, make sure to put the mattress stops at the front of the couch, or the mattress seems to move forward and slouch. As a bed, my son slept on it and said it was comfortable. I bought normal deep pocket queen size sheets with elastic all the way around and they fit without bunching up.
Overall pleased with purchase
We ordered this sofa for our living room. It is STUNNING! It is a royal blue that is just like the photo. Everyone who enters our house gasps and asks us where we got it. We are almost afraid to sit on it, it is so lovely! However, as gorgeous as it is, it is even more comfortable. The almost velvet like texture is luxurious and I could nap on it all day. It is somewhat firm and offers amazing support. The back is low but is still supportive. The pillows are large and very comfortable. If you are wondering whether you should order this sofa, you should!
The quality of these couches are great and the color is beautiful! We highly recommend these couches. I also purchased custom made couches that cost 3x's as much and you cannot tell the difference. LOVE THEM!!
I bought two of these couches and I really like them. They came in very big boxes but were easy to assemble. The slip covers fit beautifully but take some time to put on perfectly. Once all together you can feel accomplished and proud of your new purchase
