Firstly, let me say "Thank you" to previous reviewers. Without your honest appraisal, it would have been impossible to know what to expect. Yes, the leather is a bit stiff, but less so in the back cushions. Yes, it is firm, but we needed something that didn't result in backaches. Yes, it sits a little high, but we wanted that so it would be easier to get up from a seated position. I will add the new observation that this is really lightweight furniture. The sofa/loveseat combo was listed at 200 lbs on the shipping manifest. There is not much wood in the frame, nor steel in the springs. I want to be unhappy about the $/lb, but I have to confess that the set sits very well. The only consequence I can find of the lightweight frame is a fifth leg under the middle of the sofa. You can't see that is is plastic, unlike the four corner legs. It was clearly added as an afterthought to prevent sagging in the center of the sofa with our larger bottoms planted above. Did anyone say that the cushions are ecured with Velcro, and not reversible. My wife doesn't particularly like to sit on leather, and she suggested rating this as a 4.5, so she likes it fine. I would give it a 3.5 because of the lightweight frame. It does look nice, and it sits very well. We are retired, so we will never wear out the leather. We'll have to see how well the frame holds up over time. The sofga/sleeper set this replaced was over 30 years old, and I had paid almost as much to reupholster it 16 years ago as thi sset cost. But it weighed easily twice as much. Oh, yes, the piping on the cushions is a little stiff, but not a dealbreaker.
We received the sofa in two boxes. The assembly was very easy. I did it by myself in under 30 minutes. It was just as beautiful as the pictures, if not more so. But it is extremely uncomfortable. When sitting on the cushions there was no give. It was hard. And it was smaller than I expected. My living room seemed to swallow it up. I might fit great in the small living room or apartment. I'm sending it back.
Arm rest of the sofa doesn't have a removable cover. A cover is necessary if you don't want the sofa get dirty once and for all. The sofa is delivered in two separated packages. The deliver guy left one package outside my door without calling me. And the other package was nowhere to be found. Then I received a call from a neighbor in Building 600 who told me that my package was left there even though my building was 800. So I have to move the 30 inch cubic from Building 600 to Building 800 by myself in the snowing night.
I absolutely love love love this couch. I have had it for about 3 years. It is stunning. I always get compiments on it. The style is versatile. The leather is soft and perfectly worn. I love that the back cushions can be removed as it turns into the perfect sleeping location for overnight guests because the seat is relatively deep without the back cushion on. All the cushions come off which is convenient for rotating the cushions so as to not wear out one cushion more than the other. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because there are only 4 legs on the couch and I think it could use 6. The area of the couch under the center cushion is sagging... I think it could use a little extra support and plan to add legs on in the middle.
