The design of this sofa is SPECTACULAR. The size and seating capacity are generous, but it feels "light" because the cleverly placed legs make it appear to float, and the arms and back are trim and sleek. The tufting on the seat cushion adds just the right amount of vintage glamour, and the color is gorgeous. HOWEVER, the finish materials and seat cushion construction are a disaster. I live alone and live very gently on my furniture (I had my last sofa for seven years and it still looked new when I replaced it), yet I've only had this sofa for a little over three months and it looks worn out. I've rotated the seat cushion to what degree I am able (you cannot flip it and use the un-tufted side for seating, as the plastic tufting plates are right at the surface and hurt), but the velvet is worn down shiny and flat, the tufting is also nearly flat, and the cushion overall looks like a large family has been bouncing on it for ten years. I tried contacting Article very early on to describe the rapid deterioration of the velvet, but I was flatly advised that I was one day outside the 30 day warranty and was welcome to take the issue up with a local upholstery care provider if I so chose. Very disappointing. As is often said in online reviews, I wanted to love this sofa... and I did love it -- for three weeks!
