    Description

    Ian offers the best of both worlds—a clean, modern design that's comfortable and family friendly. Sophisticated details like welting and tight back cushions give this sofa a tailored look, but wide arms and plush seat cushions create an inviting spot for relaxing.

    Customer comments about Ian 81" Sofa:

    So disappointed in this sofa. We ordered the 81" in the total linen and it's absolutely beautiful. As others have mentioned, the sofa looked greyer in our house, a beautiful pale grey. Fabric is soft. But after the delivery guys left, we noticed that the cushions were two different sizes and didn't line up with the center seam, which itself was not in the center of the sofa. There was about a 1/2" gap between the center of the cushions and the center seam, which looked awful and glaringly obvious. We could have maybe accepted that but the cushions also felt completely different. One was firm and comfortable, while the second was much softer and made you sink into the corner of the sofa. A quick call to R&B customer service had a replacement on its way with delivery for one week later. It was stressful worrying about something happening to the couch during that week (an 11-year-old and a dog!) and wondering if we would get charged for damage, as I've seen others here complain about. Finally, they delivered the replacement and it was the exact same. One cushion was softer and sloping, the center seams didn't line up. We sent them both back and are back to no couch. And of course we ordered 2 custom chairs to match this sofa so we are stuck with them and trying to find something else to match. We have always loved our R&B purchases in the past, but now I'm wary of trying anything else.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery guys are awesome. They called 15-20 minutes before showing up and were very friendly and careful.

    Should have requested a fabric sample

        Customer comments about Ian 90" Sofa:

        The grey fabric has a blue tone that doesn't work with the colors in my living room. The picture online is more of a charcoal/green/grey. Also, the detail in the fabric is much more pronounced than it looks online. This, in my opinion, gives it a less expensive look. So disappointed in myself for not getting a swatch or going to the store to see it in person. This color also makes it look a bit more institutional than it looks online. It would work in a room with cooler colors or a more casual setting.

          I have had this couch for less than 2 years and the cushions look terrible. Within 1 year of purchase the cushions had already started to lose their shape. We had ours made with custom fabric to match our living room. Very disappointing when you spend so much on a sofa.

                      We've owned the sofa for 4 months and unfortunately, we will be returning it. The seat cushions have not held their shape - even with frequent flips. Not as important but noticeable is poor/sloppy finishing around the cushions. This is our day-to-day family room sofa, so perhaps it would have held up longer if not used on a daily basis. Pros: The arms are a nice width, the back of the sofa retained it's shape and nice fabric color.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Awesome! The delivery service was outstanding. Professional and respectful. The gentleman removed their shoes without even asking. One of our couches had to be broken down because it wouldn't fit in the door. They didn't hesitate to disassemble and reassemble the sofa, while providing tips on how to keep it clean.

                        A number of reviews comment on the cushions losing shape. Can you please respond to this concern, as this is the problem I have with my current sofa I'm planning to replace. Also, do you sell the foam inserts separately, in the event that the cushions do lose shape?

                        Thank you!

                          The Ian sofa has a wrapped foam and will as all sofa cores, need regular maintenance. It will also depend on how customers live with their items, in their homes. I would suggest reviewing the product care link we have, regarding foam cushion, as it may provide additional information. It is located on the product page, under Product Care, on the lower right side. We are able to order replacement cores for the Ian. Please contact us at 800-486-6554 for additional assistance.

                          The Ian wood frame is kiln dried engineered hardwood. The wood is Sustainable Forestry Initiative certified. The inner foam core in the seat cushions is wrapped in additional foam made of at least 20% plant-based material, and the fiber in the back pillows is 100% polyester.

                        Q:

                        Is the Turin fabric, in the custom options, stain resistant?

                          A:

                          The Turin fabric is not treated with a stain repellant, nor is a microdenier or microthread a part of its weave. Therefore, it should be treated as a normal fabric option, not one that is inherently stain resistant.

                        Q:

                        Our front door is 32" wide and we're interested in the Ian 90" sofa. Will there be an issue getting the sofa through the door and into the house?

                          The Ian sofa is 32" high and has removable 2" legs. It should fit through a 32" door if that includes the clearance for the door itself. Please also consider any turns the sofa needs to make to get to its final destination. Our Fit guide may be very helpful for you.

                          I am sorry we do not have the option to change the cushions to a down cushion.

                        Q:

                        Do the cushion covers zip off? And are the foam and fiber cushions covered with ticking?

                        Not related, but... when are you going to open a store in the Philadelphia area? We are the perfect market for your stores.

                        Thanks,

                        Jeanne

                          To answer your question on the cushion, yes on both accounts. The cushion covers do zip off and the foam and fiber cushions are covered with ticking. We love the Philadelphia area and it would be a great spot for a store. Until then, if you make it to New York or Washington DC please be sure to check out our stores there.
