Decent piece for a smaller space
 from Philadelphia,  Jan 14, 2013

After so many mixed reviews, I was hesitant to order this product. However, I have a living room that needed a small place to sit and I did not want to spend much money on the seating (since I'm almost never in there) so I gave this a try. As others have stated, the fabric is coarse and the seat itself is hard - not very comfortable if you plan to sit on it all the time. The color in the photo is accurate, but it's also bland by itself; I recommend buying an accent pillow to break up the beige. Assembly was fair, I would rate it a 5 on a scale of 1-10. I've been assembling a lot of furniture since I just moved, so I have a good feel for pieces that take up a lot of time. I didn't have trouble with the back, as some other reviewers stated, but the leg assembly gave me some trouble as the pieces on the left side were not cut to line up exactly with the frame and pre-drilled holes. I was eventually able to get the legs in, and once the entire piece was assembled it was sturdy and a good fit for my small space. For reviewers who had trouble with wobbliness; the might have been the chair, but it could also be the assembly process. The directions state to not tighten your screws 100% until all the pieces are in place. I've made the over-tightening mistake with other pieces and if you tighten 100% before all the pieces are together this can lead to the remaining holes not lining up properly because you do not have enough slack. Then if you force the screws in at that point, they may not be in properly and this can lead to wobbliness. For those of you buying this product, make sure you follow the directions and only tighten 80% of the way during assemble. Oh, and you might need a rubber mallet to get the left side leg into place. Overall, I'm satisfied with this loveseat. It works for me because my space is small and I'm not going to sit on it for long periods of time. This piece is smaller than a traditional loveseat and is also lower to the ground than many couches, so definitely measure if you're trying to match it up with existing pieces.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? as pictured
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is fair, not very comfortable and the pieces are tough to assemble. But it looks good once it's together.
  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? This is not a loveseat, it is close to the size of a setee, or as others have stated, an oversized accent chair.
