      Customer comments about Murphy 59" Sofa:

      The couch looks beautiful! Fabric is soft and color is great & vibrant. It's a little stiff-not really a cozy sofa, mostly in the room style and extra seating when company comes. It's great as an accent in a room to your main larger sofa. The color makes a statement.

      Customer comments about Murphy 59" Sofa:

      I love this little sofa, it is such a pretty indigo that looks amazing with bright pillows. I have it in a window protrusion in my dressing room and it is just perfect. It's very petite so it won't mix well with all scales of furniture, so it's not particularly versatile piece, but is just what it should be.

        The Murphy sofa added the perfect modern gracefulness in the living room I designed for a model residence in Brooklyn, NY. Against a backdrop of black and white, this emerald green velvet sofa took center stage. I added accents in emerald green as well as decorative pillows in black, white and sunshine yellow. The result: a stylishly modern contemporary room with a gentle touch of glamorous sophistication.

          Customer comments about Murphy 81" Sofa:

          We recently bought two couches from Room & Board, and the Murphy in teal veleveteen was our first choice. It is kind of a chair-like couch as it is easy to sit upright in it. I like to sit and knit. Our other couch is more cushy-comfy, which my husband prefers. The fabric is beautiful and has no bad chemical smell like some new furniture does. Our house was built in the late 1930's, with smallish rooms, and this couch fits right in with the style and space.

          Customer comments about Murphy 81" Sofa:

          This sofa is pretty stiff and admittedly not the most comfortable thing to sit on. However it is SUPER CUTE and looks great as an accent piece in your home or (as we did) used in an office setting.

            I am so pleased with this couch and also with the way it was delivered. It was delivered on time by nice people (who took their shoes off). The couch itself is even prettier than it is in the photos. The material feels wonderful and high quality. The design is perfetion and could not fit my style any better.

              Customer comments about Murphy 81" Sofa:

              The couch is a perfect size for an open space that is both dining room and living room. It's long enough to stretch out on, but not overbearing for the space. It's an attractive centerpiece, but, again, not overwhelming.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was a perfect experience. Clear communication about expected date (I ordered it with a different frabic that what is stocked). Helpful scheduling. Prompt delivery, and the delivery people were considerate and tidy.

                  A:

                  We do not ever recommend the application of a stain repellant on upholstery. It can weaken the fibers and severely alter the color over time. By following our care recommendations online, you should be able to maintain your sofa beautifully.
