          Customer comments about Dean 88" Sofa:

          We've had this sofa for about a month and we couldn't be happier. The sofa is definitely on the firm side but we love that you don't sink down into it. We got the stock charcoal fabric and love that it's a great neutral color that goes with just about anything. It's our primary use sofa (we don't have any other seating options) and the build quality makes it feel like it's going to hold up for a very long time.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Sofa arrived in a less than a week and in perfect condition. Delivery was smooth and painless, and we appreciated the phone call a few days before the delivery to confirm all the details.

            This is an artfully designed couch with a squared off look that works in either a modern or classic room. I also purchased the companion single large single chair and they look great in my living room which is open to the dining area and kitchen. They were exactly what I wanted and the dark gray compliments the light gray walls, white trim and green accents. This couch and chair are very firm but really comfortable.

              Customer comments about Dean 88" Sofa:

              I just remodeled and bought all new furniture for my main floor. I wanted a couch that I could sit on comfortably - no sinking down, good back support, and not too deep. Of course, it also had to look good. This couch is perfect. At first I thought it looked too stiff, but I've added some pillows and it looks great. The room isn't that big, and the 'tightness' of the design doesn't overwhelm the room.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The deliver guys were great, but were challenged getting this in the door. They finally took off the legs, but by then the new woodwork got pretty nicked up in the process. Initially, I was pretty happy with R&B's response - they agreed to send out a painter to repair the damage. That meant four hours off work - but managable. Then, they forgot to tell the painter to come - so I need to take four more hours off work to actually see the painter. Then, the painter didn't finish, and so four more hours off work the next week. They did apologize when I pointed out that their error resulted in me missing 12 hours of work. However, at that point I would have expected something additional - % or $ off coupon or something.

                We worked with [@]at the Orange County store and she helped us select the 88" inch Dean sofa in a cream material. We absolutely love it. It has beautiful, classic lines. It doesn't have back pillows, so it never looks sloppy. We like that it comfortably seats 3 people. It's firm and it feels like it has longevity. Because of the neutral color, I feel like I can change the look with different accent pillows in years to come. Once again, very happy with R&B and their products. We paired this with 2 Amos swivel chairs and could not be happier. Thanks, [@], for a job well done! And on top of that, the delivery guys are super.

                  Bought the sofa in Dustin Slate 2 years ago. Looks brand new. Good quality, firm. Classic yet a little modern, I think. Clean lines. Frame has already held up for 3 moves; seems like it will last. Plan to re-upholster it in a few years...

                    An exceptionally well-made sofa, with durable but soft-to-the-touch, easy care fabric. This is our most-used piece of furniture. It's where we watch TV, hang out with the dog (whose fur vacuums right off the material) and generally relax. The lines are perfect; the details are beautiful and the sofa has held its shape after almost two years of dialy use.

                      Customer comments about Dean 88" Three-Cushion Sofa:

                      We were looking for a comfortable couch for a basement family room--and one that could fit down a fairly narrow stairway. This one fits the bill perfectly. The legs were removable, so despite its relatively large size, it made it through a 29.5" wide opening. The gray velvet fabric has just a bit of blue in it, which looks great with the natural stone of our fireplace. It also seats three very comfortably for movie viewing. We bought the ottoman, as well, which is a good deal sturdier than any of the other "brands" we considered.

                        I shopped online and in stores for months before settling on the Dean sofa. I couldn't be more pleased with the purchase! We have two 88" Dean sofas in our living room, where I expect they'll stand up well to kids, TV watching, book reading, and lounging. The cushions are firm but comfortable, and the gray velvet is a perfect neutral for us. The low profile provides just the right amount of visual separation between our open concept living room and dining room.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Room and Board offers world-class customer service. Thanks to multiple calls from customer service--as well as the delivery men--I knew exactly when to expect my delivery. The delivery men were polite, prompt, and friendly. Setup was perfect. Good customer service can be hard to come by these days, but Room and Board got it right, from beginning to end.

                          Can this be made using the PUTTY fabric? I am interested in the three-seater and the two-seater sofas. If so, how long would it take and what would be the cost?

                          Q:

                          Are the legs removable on the Dean sofa? If so, how high are the legs?

                            Yes, the legs are removable. They are 2" high. This information is also available under the Details and Dimensions section on the left side of the page.

                          For the inside seating measurement, is that the inside seat with back of cushion or without?

                            The Dean sofa is a tight back so there are not any cushions on the seat back. So it would be the total depth.

                          Hi,
                          Could I do COM on this sofa? I would like to use a DesignTex vinyl on it.
                          Thanks

                            While we don't do COM, we do have many custom options. If you search "custom dean" it will take you to our custom upholstery designer.
