Orson

Summary

Description

The ultimate in relaxation, the large scale of our Orson sofa envelops you in comfort. A deep seat invites sink-in lounging, while tall back cushions offer plenty of head and neck support. We include additional throw pillows for even more coziness. Maintain the look by regularly fluffing the throw pillows and cushions, or allow them to relax into a more casual look.

      Customer comments about Orson 73" Sofa:

      I was going on maternity leave and wanted to replace our couch with a more comfy place to nurse at night- our condo is not big enough for a nursing chair. I had ordered a couch from a San Francisco based store and it was a disaster to get- over a 3 month delay- finally cancelled and ordered the Orson and it was at our front door in a week! I cannot say enough good things about Room and Board- they have the BEST customer service, I mean the BEST. If you have ever ordered furniture from anywhere else, you will understand. This couch is COMFORTABLE, so comfortable, I can sleep on it sitting up while nursing- it's heaven. My only gripe is that i wish it came stocked in a lighter fabric, like a medium gray- its dark.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Arrived on time and had great communication about delivery with R&B and the driver- could not have gone any better.

      Customer comments about Orson 73" Sofa:

      We've owned this sofa and the Orson chair for about 6 months now. It is a very comfortable sofa. Unfortunately, it sheds feathers at an alarming rate. They come from everywhere; cushions, pillows and the base of the piece as well. We pick up feathers several times a day, and at least once per day, one of us is stabbed by a feather pin in the leg or back. I love Room and Board, and have purchased other furniture from them and have never been disappointed until now.

        Just can't seem to get it right

        Customer comments about Orson 86" Sofa:

        I really loved this couch when I bought it two years ago. It was the right size, the right shape, the right color, etc. I thought it was comfortable when I sat in it at the store, but as I began to use it more frequently it felt more and more like a horrible purchase.

        The sofa itself is well-made, but something about it just makes it incredibly uncomfortable. I find that the seat cushions are so squished down that my body doesn't get support and my butt falls asleep. You try to curl up and shift around to get comfortable but you just end up sliding towards the front of the couch because the cushion offers no resistance and just slants down.

        To try to improve it we purchased an ottoman to add additional support, but that only slightly helps. We would definitely never be able to go back to using the sofa without an ottoman.

        Overall it's way too slouchy and unsupportive. The cushions need a lot of work on this one. In terms of sitting for long periods of time to watch a movie or something, it's a no. If you have to have it, it's best kept as a pretty couch in a rarely-used room. I do regret buying this couch and feel that I have wasted a lot of money.

                Customer comments about Orson 86" Sofa:

                This is my first big-girl couch after buying used ones, and I am IN LOVE. I bought it in the custom color Desmond Pink after searching high and low for a comfy, quality pink couch. I love the fabric, comfy cushions, and how QUALITY it is. Literally the only negative thing I can think of is that it would be better with one long seat cushion instead of two (because who wants to sit on the crack?). But that's pretty minor. I'm thrilled!

                Service and delivery comments:

                The couch arrived in perfect condition and the delivery guys couldn't have been nicer.
