        Customer comments about York 73" Sofa:

        We purchased both the York sofa and loveseat a year ago and are adding our complaint about the feather loss and poking of the feathers to the other reviews. Shortly after our purchase, we requested a Room & Board customer service representative come out to observe the feather loss. He documented the problem and resassured us that it should be a temporary problem. We have actually experienced an increase, not decrease, in the feather loss. This is unacceptable and I plan to follow up with Room & Board, referencing the many other reviewers experiencing the same issue.
        For this reason, I cannot recommend the purchase of this product.

        Customer comments about York 87" Sofa:

        I own two York sofas. Bought the first with custom upholstery from the SOHO store in NYC. Cushions lost shape, feathers came out from day one... Pain to clean up and you're constantly being poked by them. Fabric we chose held up really well however. Then the wire mesh began popping that supported the cushions. Granted it was 5 years old at that time, but still... Reluctantly bought a second when we moved to MSP. When these are new, they feel great to sit in and they look good (clean lines). We bought the 2nd at the warehouse and knew the fabric on it wouldn't likely hold up well, so that's on us... As are the poor cushions that last a year tops since we already knew about this situation. Can't recommend this sofa until they fix the cushion issue. It just doesn't hold up, and really has ruined room and board for me.

            Customer comments about York 87" Sofa:

            After owning the sofa for less than 3 months the structure supporting the cushions completely fell apart. It turns out that the cushions are supported by straps that are stapled into the frame. No springs, no screws, nothing of quality. Think lawn furniture, but at least lawn furniture's straps are held on by grommets.

            Plus the feathers in the cushions started coming out immediately, which sucks for cleaning up and being constantly poked by the feathers coming out of the cushions.

            We expected a lot better quality from Room & Board. We've made several purchases from R&B and we've always been super satisfied. This purchase, however, making us miss the Lazy Boy sofa that we threw out to be replaced by the York sofa.

            On the plus side, the repair man is at our apartment right now and going to fix it.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was great and the sofa arrived in good condition.

              I wanted to love this sofa. It's comfy and looks good. But the sofa cushions lose shape quickly. I have to fluff it everyday. Also the down feathers keep coming out. It looks like we have birds living in the cushions. We keep pulling feathers out all the time. It's annoying.i would have returned this except that we are well past date of returns.
              Delivery and customer service are quick.

              Customer comments about York 87" Sofa:

              You may be wondering why I gave 4 stars to a sofa that I "hate." Well, I also love many things about it. Yes, the back cushions lose their shape easily, but they also are very easy to plump up again. The salesperson showed us how to do it in the showroom; simply turn the cushion so the zipper is up, and push in the sides starting from the bottom to redistribute the down. The sofa is very comfortable to sit on; the depth is neither too narrow nor too wide, at least for my husband and myself. I do vacuum it weekly, and rotate/flip/plump the cushions then as well as when needed.

              Now for the hate. This sofa loses a lot of down, which can make it look kind of ratty at times. I have the Total Charcoal fabric, so most of the down really stands out against it. Also, I find that the fabric has pilled quite a lot, especially on the matching ottoman, which I've had for about a year.

              So that's it. Love the down when it's inside the cushion, hate it when it works its way out. I love the comfort and how easy it is to plump back up. My previous couch had back cushions filled with batting, and it became almost impossible to return the back cushions to any semblance of shape, plus they became lumpy and uncomfortable, so I really appreciate this feature. Hate the fabric pills, so if I had it to do over again I would not choose the Total fabric, even though I like the way it looks besides the pills. But that's just my experience, and the sofa does get a lot of wear and tear with a family of four and two cats.

                Customer comments about York 87" Sofa:

                Sofa is deep enough for 2 adults to stretch out on together when the back cushions are removed, and one back cushion fits well along the armrest in this position. The fabric is soft and comfortable. I am seeing a recurring crease where I usually sit, but it's still too early to tell if that will be permanent/visible over time when the sofa is "at rest". The side pillows are very comfortable and a good size - not too big to limit seating, but big enough for a headrest when watching tv. My previous couch was the same length but had attached armrest pillows that limited the seating area - this couch has a lot of seating/stretching out length, as the armrests are sturdy but not excessively wide. The sofa looked very grey in the store with the florescent lighting, but in my apt. with more lamps/non-white lighting it looks more neutral (charcoal). The low back of this couch means you can easily and comfortably rest your arm along the top of the back cushion when seated. But it's still high enough to give you support when seated, or slouching watching tv.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Great delivery service. Product arrived and was very quickly set up. Delivery personnel took all wrapping materials away with them, were very courteous.

                  Customer comments about York 87" Sofa:

                  We wanted a comfortable but smart looking sofa for the kitchen/tv room, and we didn't want to spend a fortune. We are a tall family (6'1"-6'5") and find super low and/or sofas with low backs incredibly irritating. We sat in EVERY sofa in town before purchasing the 87" York. We can even lie down comfortably on it!

                  Some reviews complain that the down seats lose shape, look rumpled, etc. The solution to this very real issue with an otherwise fantastic sofa is to simply flip and rotate the cushions every couple of weeks. The down is very comfortable, so I'm willing to put in this minimal amount of effort to keep it looking fresh. And, for the price, it just can't be beat.

                  The stock grey is a fantastic neutral, and we use the matching throw pillows on the cream slipcovered swivel chairs on the opposite side of the room to balance out the colors.

                  Love it, love R & B!

                    Q:

                    I see that the top of the back cushions are caving in some of the pictures. Do the cushions retain their shape well? Do the cushions need to be fluffed often? If this is a concern, would it better to get the Metro sofa with three cushions instead of the York with two cushions?

                      A:

                      Blend down cushions require some regular maintenance. Flip, rotate and fluff removable cushions regularly to ensure even wear and increase longevity. Feather and down cushions have excellent recovery, but much like down comforters or pillows, need to be fluffed more frequently to restore their loft. For more information, please watch our short video on cushion core maintenance.

                      The York sofa is not designed to be disassembled. Only the legs are designed to be removed to lessen the height by two inches, making it slightly easier to fit it through a narrow door.
