Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sirskialot Looks quite sharp, but is flawed in back support
While I ordered this sofa for its aesthetics and seemingly slightly stiffer padding compared with a large frumpy couch, I have to say that I regret my decision. The couch looks incredibly sharp, as pictured, however, there is quite a major flaw with the item as is, which would have been noticeable if there were a photo of the rear of the couch. The rear portion of the couch frame, behind the rear cushions, is the same height as the arms, and is at a 90 degree angle from the floor. This means that the rear cushions only have support to their halfway mark, making leaning back incredibly uncomfortable. Along the same lines, the rear cushions do not stay in place, as there is no flat surface for them to lean on. As it is, the couch is more functional as an uncomfortable day bed than a sofa. It seems as though the couch is missing an additional rear surface, something I may contemplate constructing myself if I don't return the item, though I believe the freight costs would be on par with the item cost. Additionally, for what it's worth, I would recommend more wood glue for all of the dowel joints, not just in the first step of the instructions.

I've been purchasing from Home Decorators for years and have alway been pleased. I debated for months over whether to purchase this item or not. A couch that needs to be assembled! I was skeptical but finally made the plunge. So glad that I did. Shipping was fast (even though I took advantage of a free shipping offer) and it arrived via UPS in 4 boxes. So much of it is already assembled for you and all you need to assemble the rest is the tool that they provide. Start to finish took just one hour. I'm impressed wtih the look and the quality of the construction. I have no doubt it will last a long time.

We bought two sofas in May/June 2012. Both arrived slightly damaged (finish flaws, etc.), I've got no complaints about their quality or wear. Not difficult to assemble. Upholstery is VERY dark brown, but I expected that (from other reviews). Cushions VERY firm at first, but will eventually get more comfortable (broken in). We've received many compliments for their appearance and comfort factor. Biggest disappointment is that it seems their Mission Furniture line is being phased out. I'd recommend item to friends.

Purchased the sofa and chair. Assembly was straight forward. Took about half an hour/45 minutes each piece. They quality is good for the price. The cushions on the couch are very firm. The chair is less firm. The chair cushions are also slightly different in thickness from the couch cushions- which provides more seating area on the chair. They are also softer. I wish the couch cushions were like these. I think it would make the couch slightly more comfortable.

Being that there is a Home Decorator store near me, I had them build it and I picked it up.. Well worth the $35 they charge extra. So far so good. Looks great and is comfortable. I like the Artisan collection. I have the desk and an end table and just ordered the buffet.

Overall, this sofa really looks good in the office, but the cushions are stiff/hard and the arm on one side was poorly finished (missing stain).

This sofa was exactly what I was looking for. It is a perfect match to my existing furniture, rocking chair, bar stools, coffee tables and lamps. I have looked for months and could not find anything even close for less than 3-4 times what I paid here. This is a life-time piece-- very solid, no springs to break or overstuffed upholstery to wear out or stain. I LOVE IT.

The sofa is really nice looking. The leather is nice and soft but the cushions may be a little too firm. It is wide enough for me to nap in (I am 5'11"). There were no extra parts. I broke a dowel and had to go get a replacement from the hardware store. The kit did not come with enough wood glue for the dowels.
