      Customer comments about Vela 84" Bench-Cushion Sofa:

      The small feathers in the cushion filling are constantly poking through - I like the feather and down cushion, but the fabric wrapping the feathers needs to be of a tighter weave, like on good pillows.

        Customer comments about Vela 84" Bench-Cushion Sofa:

        Out last sofa came from a less expensive store and we were sinking lower and lower into the sofa over time. This one sits a bit higher and no one gets stuck in the crack with the bench cushion. I feel confident it will support and hold up better than the previous one. We ordered custom fabric (Dawson in cement). The color is perfect and better against stains than the stock Tannon fabric. I do think if messy family members are not a concern the stock Tannon fabric is actually the best choice though.

        Customer comments about Vela 84" Bench-Cushion Sofa:

        I love Room and Board. I have shopped here for 20+ years. In that time I have have always come away happy, with one exception -- The Vela Sofa. Part of the challenge is that I upgraded the fabric to Doss Bone. After nine months of living with this sofa, the Doss Bone has not softened. Meanwhile I keep visiting this sofa at the store and enjoy the soft, flexible fabric that comes standard. That said the sofa is too low to the ground so much so that it's difficult get out of the sofa and it is not comfortable long sits, watching movies, etc. While not an idea primary sofa, this stylish piece to would work well in a bedroom or home office. Still, I remain a fan of Room and Board.

        • Q:

          How can the width be 84" and the inside width be 66"? Is the measurement correct?
          Asked on 5/25/2014 by eva from United States

          1 answer

          • DESIGN ASSOCIATE

            A:

            That measurement takes into account the arm pillows. The inside measurement without them is 80".

        • Q:

          Is there any other difference in the Palm vs Vela other than the Palm coming stocked in Sunbrella / outdoor fabric?
          Asked on 1/16/2014 by Vuxie from Orlando, FL

          1 answer

          • DESIGN ASSOCIATE

            A:

            The Vela sofa – designed for indoor use – has one additional size available – the 96” size.
            The Palm sofa is the outdoor version of the Vela sofa, so it incorporates weather-proof materials, such as marine-grade plywood, barrier-wrapped cushions and the water-resistant Sunbrella fabric options. Other than that, the design/style is the same.

        • Vela 96" Bench-Cushion Sofa

          Q:

          Are the covers removable for washing/dry cleaning (including the main base cushion you sit on)?
          Asked on 11/2/2013 by Candice from United States

          1 answer

          • DESIGN ASSOCIATE

            A:

            The covers on the seat and the back cushions can be removed, but should never be laundered or dry cleaned. We recommend a professional upholstery cleaning once every one to two years.

        • Q:

          Can the cushions be made firmer than they currently are? Is it possible to get different cushion interiors that provide for a firmer seating surface so that you do not sink in?
          Asked on 8/31/2013 by Dimitri from Jamesport

          1 answer

          • DESIGN ASSOCIATE

            A:

            There is a foam wrapped cushion you could choose instead when custom ordering the sofa. To order you would need to call a design associate or visit a store. This would be a much firmer sit.
