Comments: In our second home - old house, small living room - watching tv was very awkward so we replaced a small love seat with this very comfortable and roomy couch and it worked out perfectly. Now we have room for our family plus friends and it is wonderful.
The neutral stock color fit right into the decor and the fabric has enough variation to be forgiving of our sweet but shedding dogs. My only complaint is that the fabric is slightly stiff and has a chemical (probably sizing) smell that I am hoping will fade out rapidly. So far I have tried spraying and putting the cushions out in the sun with slight success. However, it does not seem to bother others.

Comments: We love this couch. It's extremely comfortable and my husband and i have plenty of room to stretch out without getting in each other's way. The fabric does pull a little bit though. [...] Overall, we love the unique shape and material.

Comments: We purchased this sofa for a good sized family room; the primary purpose of the room is for TV watching/lounging. The sofa is perfect for this purpose. It has clean lines, but is casual and very comfortable. The back cushions, in particular, will lose their shape, given the looser fill, and the sofa is also fairly deep. We don't view these as drawbacks, as this was the type of sofa we wanted for this space and this purpose. The sofa is large and occupies a lot of space, visually. We love it - may not be suitable for a more formal space.

Comments: I have had this monster sectional for over six years and it is still a dream! Not only is it still beautiful and in great shape, but it's also managed to work as I've downsized from a 3,300 sq ft house to an 800 sq ft condo. I was worried that the beast would dominate my living area, but it's perfect -- living rooms are supposed to be comfy and inviting, right? And, the fabric is literally indestructible. It is truly amazing -- just wipe any spill with a wet cloth and voila - clean! Even candle wax! Beware of the corner...guaranteed to nap ;) Be sure to continually rotate your cushions in order to maintain consistent wear.
And, before you buy anywhere else, know that Room & Board wants you to be happy. I originally purchased two Jasper sofas -- and after a few weeks found that they just weren't that comfortable. So, they took the sofas back and replaced them with my Metro. Now that's a real customer commitment.

Comments: This is a great couch for lounging around and watching movies. We got this couch for our movie room and it can fit the whole family and more. As our daughter grows up we can imagine her having lots of friends over and watching movies downstairs.
I'd recommend a large space for this couch as it's quite large!

Comments: This is the sectional that I had been searching for! It is big enough for my entire family of 5 to be comfortable on while watching TV, yet not so big that it eats up the room. It looks high quality and it is! [...]

Comments: This couch is great. The moment I saw it in the store, I knew it was mine. It has a contemporary look and is SO comfortable. This is exactly what I was looking for.
The only complaint I have is that my cat likes to sit on one of the back cushions which leaves a dent in that cushion that is hard to get out.

Comments: The angled chaise is excellent. Very stylish--I haven't seen anything like it elsewhere. A great solution to breaking up the angularity of a room. Not predictable looking like the conventional L-shape. Great for stretching out, too. Very comfortable. I really enjoy relaxing on this.

Comments: Everyone, and I mean everyone, that has seen this piece in my loft has raved about it. Room and Board has great products, the Metro sectional included, [...]
One of our most popular collections, the Metro sectional is the perfect solution for those looking for versatile seating that works equally well in formal living rooms and family-friendly great rooms. A low profile and clean lines give it a modern look, while plush cushions invite you to lounge.
Fabric Description: With its soft feel, excellent durability and appealing texture, Tatum is one of our most popular fabrics. Two contrasting colors of micro-boucle yarns highlight Tatum's pronounced texture, and also help disguise stains and wear. Tatum is a great choice for both small and large upholstery frames.

Made to the same high standards as all of our furniture, each one of our upholstery frames is built to last.
Kiln-dried, engineered hardwood
We use kiln-dried, engineered hardwood in all of our upholstery frames. Often used for structural beams, engineered
hardwood is made by pressing thin layers of solid wood together. Kiln-drying removes moisture, minimizing seasonal
expansion and contraction. This stable hardwood material resists warping and cracking for lasting durability.
We reinforce every joint in our frames for added stability. Precision-cut parts interlock like puzzle pieces and are
reinforced with eco-friendly glues, screws or staples and corner blocks. Reinforced joinery ensures your seating holds together,
even with years of frequent use.
A Dual Flexolator suspension consists of a tempered steel grid attached to the frame with small springs. Each seat has its own independent steel grid,
providing undisturbed comfort for each person on the sofa.
