Comments: We love the simple yet cool 50s design. The combination of the colour and the shape of the sofa was the perfect match for what we were looking for. We wanted to use it for the family room and have something comfortable, but we didn't want to have an ordinary looking "comfy couch". The depth is just right, and the cushions are soft without being too puffy. The leather feels nice and soft, but skuffs fairly easily. Over time that adds to its character, and we're ok with that, but if you like things to look extra new all the time, you might want to try a different type of leather. We went for the colour and look that is on the website and in the shop which does look good in our house. The sofa looks much nicer in person than online.

Comments: This sofa is in our family room, the room we use most of the time to relax, watch TV and generally hang out as a family. The sofa is really beautiful and seems quite durable. It is a sleek look that feels modern, but the durability makes it a good choice for families. The leather fabric is really soft and smooth. My only complaint is that it's just not a very comfortable sofa. The leather is slippery, so if you are "lounging" you slide off the couch. It's not as soft and cushiony as another couch might be, so it's not very conducive to cuddling up and relaxing. It really requires a coffee table or large ottoman so that you can put your feet up in order to settle in and get comfortable.

Comments: Using this as my main couch. Just looks terrific and sophisticated. Not ordinary. Comfortable but needs pillows to lean against the ends. Leather is incredibly smooth and soft and stitching is beautiful.

Comments: Even though it's a very traditional looking leather couch, it fits really well in my modern loft. The tan leather and wooden legs add warmth to my concrete ceiling loft. The clean-line design is timeless. One thing to remember is the material is real leather, thus if exposed to sunlight over time, it will discolor.

Comments: After searching for the perfect sofa for our living room for years, we happened upon this model at your Chicago store while there on vacation. The sales agent was very helpful even though it was clear that we could not purchase from that store. She printed the specs for us and arranged to have swatches sent to our home. It turned out that the color we saw at the store was perfect, so we ordered the sofa on line. [...]We've had it for over a year now, and could not be more pleased with it's style, comfort and durability.

Comments: We've had this sofa for nearly two years and it still looks brand new (with a toddler around)! Easy to clean and care for. The color is gorgeous and neutral. Fits well in an open living space since the back is a low profile. Perfect for two very tall people to stretch out on. Sits three adults comfortably and four awkwardly. The arms are hard but we liked the clean lines. Searched for the right pillows and now it's perfect. Leather is very soft, would be scared to have pets around it.

Comments: I like my Wells sofa in this deep brown color because it is not in high contrast with the legs. This keeps such a long couch understated. I have not "matched" it with anything else in the catalog because it mixes so well with our Eames molded plywood pony chairs and some vintage pieces that we already had.

Comments: After a decade of marriage we finally have invested in "grown up" furniture--and we couldn't be happier with the Wells leather couch! This sofa is not only extremely well made (excellent craftsmanship in the fit and finish), sturdy (perfect for a family with two boys), and comfortable (ahhh!), it is aesthetically pleasing. This sofa is THE focal point of our living room and it visually works well with the "Reese" sofa which is in our library.

Comments: I live in a narrow rowhouse in Washington, DC and this is perfect for the home to provide seating for 4+ people since it is the only area that can face the TV.
Perfection for the long narrow home.

Comments: We bought two 89" couches that look stunning. We had our house warming party yesterday and had so many compliments on them! I had such a positive experience in both shopping at your San francisco store and ordering on line. I can honestly recommend room & board to everyone. Great! Great! Great!
The deep seat of our Wells sofa makes it a great sofa for lounging, but the special details like button tufting, precise stitching and a sculptural, solid wood base make it anything but ordinary. The seat height is designed to let your feet rest naturally as plump cushions support you in comfort.
Leather Description: Lecco offers a classic, natural look with the practical benefits of a semi-aniline finish. A lustrous oil-and-wax treatment enhances unique wrinkles, scars and grain patterns, while a protective coating shields against spills. Thick and buttery, Lecco is designed to show wear and become softer and more distinctive with age.

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.
