Comments: Comfortable seating for lounging and watching TV. Simple lines that makes my family room look bigger. Only complaint: The fit of the corner section has visible gaps on both edges, probably because of the curved shape.

Comments: Visually this is a nice sectional, much less bulk than most. Fabric quality is fine. The cushions are extremely firm - so the good news is that they hold their shape, bad news is that it is very uncomfortable to sit on. Have seen this phenom with other R&B furniture, not sure what the material used for cushioning is, but it is probably what differentiates this versus real high end qulaity.

Comments: My family and I went to R&B to check out some other sofas. The Reese was a new piece at that time and the moment I saw it I fell in love. :) We deliberated it over it for a while and I thought I might find something else at other furniture shops. I was wrong. I loved the clean lines, non-bulkiness, and shape of it. I personally like firm cushions because I don't like the sagging look. We had it custom-made in the Tula granite because we have 5 kids and needed something dark and it looks great! The sales associate told me that I might want to steer away from tufted cushions b/c of the kids, but I've had it for almost a year of constant use and don't think that it will be a problem. I also love that it can seat a lot of people at the same time which is nice for entertaining. This changed the look of my living room and look forward to enjoying it for years to come, God willing.

Comments: The couch makes you feel like your in an old movie. Every time I sit on it I want a martini in my hand. It is a beautiful piece of art/furniture.

Comments: I have the L-shaped sectional in Tatum Natural. I wanted to maximize seating without cluttering up the space and the Reese sectional suits with its light, clean design. I think it looks sophisticated but still comfortable in my mid-century modern living room, along with the Delia chaise and Noguchi coffee table. I completely agree with the previous poster - it definitely sets a martini mood!
Even though it's fairly firm seating, I find it quite comfortable for lounging with my feet up and my head on a pillow on the armrest.
The sectional connectors hold the pieces together nicely so I don't see any gaps from either the front or back. I like that the cushions are tufted on both sides so I can flip them if need be.

Comments: Had this sectional for a month now and just love it! Everyone thinks is works very well with our style. A large piece, but does not look it when it was set up. Seat height is just right and is firm without being unconfortable. Buttons are strong and look reinforced.

Comments: This couch fits our style perfectly. We like to call our furniture style contemporary traditional, because we like more clean lines, but we also love a traditional tailored look to our furnishings. This couch crossed all the lines we needed it to, and completes our more formal living space with comfort and style.

Comments: The couch is great! It's huge and yet sleek. I'm a big fan of contemporary furniture. However, I wanted to stop short of looking like Jane Jetson was my interior designer. I haven't had it for a month yet so I don't know how the cushions are going to hold up.
I have observed 2 minor problems. A couple of times while getting up from the couch, one of the buttons on the seat has become attached to my clothing somehow. I'm concerned that during the course of normal living, the buttons will be pulled off. The second issue is the couch is too heavy for me to move all three connected pieces alone. So I either have to unhook the pieces, move them, and re-hook them or I have to wait for someone to come over to assist me. That's inconvenient because I like to rearrange furniture on a whim.
Beyond those 2 concerns, I am very happy with my purchase especially when friends and family come over and rave about it. I'm also glad I went with the stocked color. Initially I thought it was too boring but because of the size of the couch, the subtle color choice really was the wise choice.

Comments: After purchasing a new (old) home that we renovated in a modern style, I thought long and hard about what couch to buy. Our last (9 yr. old) couch was super comfortable, and extremely squishy, but the cushions constantly lost shape and it kind of looked sloppy. I wanted a more sophisticated look with this couch, but also for it to be comfortable for lounging and watching TV, its primary use.
Well, its beautiful. It simply looks gorgeous and sophisticated in our new living room. Its comfortable, but not as comfortable as I'd hoped. It definitely is pretty structured, and is NOT a sink-into-it kind of couch. My ability to be comfortable and lie down on it was greatly helped by buying multiple pillows, however.
My other complaint is that the chaise is shorter than expected - too short. I'm 5'10", and I can't stretch out my legs lying down - they hang off the edge of the chaise. If I sit up all the way, they don't hang off.
FYI, every step of customer service with Room & Board was awesome - truly. From a call catching that the wrong-side chaise was ordered, to calls re: delivery times, and on-time delivery, R&B rocks.
All in all, I'm quite pleased!
A small-scale sectional with sophisticated style, Reese adds refinement with details like button tufting, precise welting and tall, tapered legs. The shallow seat features structured cushions for supportive, upright sitting for people of all sizes.
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.

Eco-friendly, high-resiliency foam core wrapped in fiber padding, encased in ticking
Offers a structured, supportive sit
Creates a neat, tailored appearance
Will soften with use, but designed to retain its shape
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 sinuous coil suspension consists of s-shaped metal springs that are stretched across the frame. The coils are securely attached with clips that allow the metal
to flex while still remaining supportive. Because each coil is independently attached to the frame, you'll barely feel it when someone sits down next to you.
