            Good lines, loose-fitting upholstery

            Customer comments about Anson 78" Sofa:

            Like the recent commenters below, we were disappointed by the loose-fitting upholstery on our Anson, which resulted in big, floppy wrinkles in the middle of the seat cushions and little creases running perpendicular to the seams. The couch looked like a dowdy secondhand purchase from the day it arrived -- pretty much the opposite of what we'd hoped for. Customer service has been good; they're accepting the return (minus the restocking charge) without any hassle.

                I am a devoted fan of Room & Board, but this couch was not their best. Seams don't stay in place and fabric isn't very taught, giving it a more casual unfinished look. But Room & Board's customer service is so superior that they happily replaced it for me.

                    Customer comments about Anson 86" Sofa:

                    Took me months to settle on a sofa - I have cats, one of which scratched my old EQ3 leather sofa and my leather ottoman, boo! My requirements: beautiful classic lines, a firm seat (due to my partner's persnickety back), a fabric that holds up well, and all at a somewhat reasonable price. I absolutely LOVE my Anson sofa. Love the color too, it goes so well with my milk chocolate brown vintage Falcon chair.

                    When the sofa was delivered and unwrapped in my living room, it had a dirty spot on the back cushion, barely a shadow but definitely a dirty spot. The guys who delivered it attempted to clean it, but it remained. They sent someone out a couple of days later, and he finished the cleaning job, now I can't tell that spot was ever there. Great customer service!

                    Also want to mention that I really appreciate the flat-rate, very reasonable delivery fee, compared to another unnamed MCM store that 'taxes' delivery as a percentage of the sales price. Really??

                    Would definitely shop R&B again!

                        We love the look and feel of this couch. Its lines and curves are beautiful and the couch is very comfortable. It fits us well. We've built an eclectic collection of Arts and Crafts and vintage MCM furniture and this couch is a perfect fit.

                        The only drawback is the strong "new couch" smell. We've had the couch for a month now and it's still off-gassing. I'm sure this will fade in time but for now it's still an issue.

                            We bought two Anson sofas three years ago. We absolutely love them. They are sturdy, comfortable, and beautiful. They still look great after 3 years in a busy house with kids and pets. We live in a 100 year old traditional house but prefer clean, modern furniture and these work perfectly.

                              The design of the couch is wonderful. I shopped every furniture store in Chicago and kept coming back to this sofa. While there are other mid-century modern designs, none have the curve bottom. The lines on this couch are beautiful. I like the low arms which do not block views of the lake. It is very comfortable. Highly recommend.

                                  The Anson Sofa is stocked in the Charcoal leg finish. Changing the leg finish has a 5 week production time.

                                Q:

                                Anson seems to have good back support and a not-too-deep seat but I am concerned that it may be overly firm. Also, in the store (Soho) the leather floor sample seemed softer than the fabric one. Would upholstering in microsuede make any difference in how soft the cushions feel? Do people use it as a lounging, reading, tv watching, etc., sofa? Have you had any comments about that?

                                  Typically leather upholstery will have a firmer sit than the same frame in fabric upholstery. The wrapped foam cushions of the Anson Sofa offer a structured and supportive sit. They will soften with use, but are designed to retain their shape.

                              • Anson 78" Sofa

                                Q:

                                Could customer service address the multiple comments concerning wrinkles on the cushions. This seems to be a common issue. Has it been resolved in the sofa's manufacturing? Can it be resolved if a customer has an issue -- that is, have you found that replacement cushions address the problem?

                                Could you explain the reason that the cushion is not fully covered in fabric, so that it is not "flippable?"

                                Thank you.

                                  Wrinkling and stretching is an inherent characteristic of most fabrics. Especially, certain fabrics like wovens are more likely to exhibit this. Regular maintenance of the seat cushions will help to minimize this. The Anson seat cushions are not flippable because of their distinctive shape – curved on one side and flat on the other.

                                  The answer would depend entirely on the fabric on your Anson sofa. The fabric shown on the Anson here is Dilcrest and requires a solvent based cleaner or in other words, spot cleaning with water or a water based solution wouldn't be recommended.
