    Customer comments about Metro 88" Three-Cushion Sofa in Desmond Charcoal:

    These couches (we have the 3 cushion couch and 2 cushion love seat) look very nice. When we first bought them, we loved the comfort as well. Alas, within less than 6 months, the cushions were really compressed, despite the seriously onerous, once-weekly chore of rotating the cushions and vacuuming them. R&B were very kind to replace the down/foam cushions we first bought with new inserts that were down-free, and therefore firmer. They did this for free, which was great service. However, the foam cushions also lost their shape after only a few months. It's been over 3 years now that we've owned these pieces, and I'm very sorry to say it's time to buy something new. They're too saggy and uncomfortable. The poor quality we've experienced means we won't be buying from R&B again. Which is a shame, as we really like the style as well as the lack of PBDEs and other hazardous flame retardants. Wish they held up better!

          We purchased two large two cushion sofas for our family room took a little getting used to as the stock grey fabric is dark. However, we have grown to love them and they are breaking in nicely. The children have pounded then and they still look new. Spot clean easily. We used bright cushions that pop against the dark grey

          Time will tell if the can with stand the rigors of family life!

            Love this couch - it's my primary viewing spot for the TV. People sitting into it for the first time usually comment how comfortable it is - the down allows you to just slowly sink into the couch.

            Easy to clean - no signs of stains after a few nasty spills. Would buy this again in a heartbeat.

              Customer comments about Metro 88" Three-Cushion Sofa in Desmond Charcoal:

              We've had this couch for about two years. We got it with the angled chase which is great for our rectangular shaped living room (you can't stretch your legs out straight on the chase, but it works for our small space). The angle gives the room a rounded feel which brings you into the "conversation" in an otherwise long, awkward room. I've got two boys who jump all over it and one cat. It's holding up great and the gunmetal fabric, which looks like a weave, does not snag or show stains. I occasionally fluff the back cushions or turn them over but for the most part they look fine. The grey looks awesome with our mustard colored rug and gives our small, older house a clean modern feel. Very comfy to sleep on too! I did a huge amount of research before we bought this and I couldn't be happier. And it's true: the service/delivery from R & B can't be beat!

                Customer comments about Metro 88" Three-Cushion Sofa in Desmond Charcoal:

                After a few months all the cushions began to shed feathers, slowly at first, but now it's a constant problem. Sofa is only eight months old and at this rate I fear that cushions will be empty long before it wears out. As others have pointed out, they use feathers instead of down, so the feather shafts are coarse and sharply pointed so I often get poked. Hasn't Room and Board heard of down-proof liners like bed pillows have? Also, the fabric we chose leaves wrinkles in the seat cushions after you get up--cushion doesn't spring back into shape.

                  On the metro 3 cushion sofa reviews are saying feathers actually poke through the fabric. Can this happen?

                    A:

                    The feathers and down are encased in a down proof ticking. You may occasionally find a few feathers that have worked there way out, but it shouldn’t be excessive.

                    A:

                    In order to meet the current California standard for flame retardancy, we do use several phosphate-based chemicals in the production of the innermost foam core of the seat cushions. There are no flame retardant chemicals applied to the surface of the sofa.

                    The feather and down in these cushions are washed twice to prevent or eliminate bacteria and mold - they also meet USDA Hypo-allergenic product regulation.
