Hess

Summary

Description

For those who love contemporary lines but seek extreme comfort, the Hess leather sofa is the perfect place to unwind. A low-slung frame and thin arms don’t take up much visual space in your room, but the deep seat and blend-down cushions create great space to lounge. Designed to relax over time, the cushions will develop a more casual look while still maintaining their plush feel.

    Customer comments about Hess 79" Sofa:

    I have a small space and this couch fits perfectly in it without looking too big. Plus I can still lay down fully on it. It's so comfortable that I often don't make it to finishing the shows I watch b/c I fall asleep on the couch.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Couch was finished quickly and they worked with me to make sure I could be there when it came. Whole delivery process took 20 mins.

      Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

      I bought this for the living room, expecting to use it to for lounging, reading and watching TV. The color and fabric are great--so is the look. But it's extremely uncomfortable--too short and not deep enough to settle into. Maybe we're too tall for it (I"m 5' 9""), but I am not convinced height is the issue. I've purchased a lot of furniture from Room and Board and this is the first 'loser'. I regret buying it and wish I'd bought another model.

      Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

      We sat in store and loved it. Looks beautiful in our home. The big however here is how uncomfortable it is turning out for us to sit on. The seat height on ours is actually 15, not the 17 as stated. Our leg size is 5 inches, not the 6 as stated. I'm not sure what the actual size was in the store, but we are sort of bummed. After sitting for just a while, me knees and behind ache and fall asleep. It is also hard to find a coffee table low enough to put in front of this since not too many come 14 inches high. I have tried a pillow propped behind me and that helps for a while, but the sit of the seat is also super firm which contributes to the discomfort. I do fluff the inside down filler often but doesn't help. For reference for others, I am 5'2" and my husband is 5'8". Expensive purchase of sofa and two chairs that don't get the use and enjoyment they should. Be careful.

        Customer comments about Hess 102" Sofa:

        We purchased the 102" sofa, along with the ottoman, for use in our family room. We special ordered the caribou color leather, and it is a lovely muted olivey brown. The sofa is simple in design, nice clean lines, but so comfortable. My husband (who was a skeptic when we started the search for a more contemporary-styled leather sofa) is hooked. It has only been about a month since we received it, so I cannot comment on whether the cushions will retain their shape, but with 2 kids climbing on and off (and occasionally jumping on) it, it has done well so far.

        Service and delivery comments:

        There was a bit of a delay in the delivery of the sofa from our originally quoted date, but still within the window of time they tell you it will take for a special order color. Our sales associate in Culver City was great in communicating with us on the status of production. Delivery with R&B is always reliable and great.

        Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

        We love this sofa. The leather can be a bit slippery and probably needs time to "wear" down. The back cushions sometimes lose their shape after sitting on the sofa awhile, so I do need to "re-fluff" them up every few days. Otherwise, a very comfortable sofa with the right height for relaxing and watching tv.

            I have 2 of these sofas in our great/living room. They face each other, with a coffee table in the middle. It is the couch that everyone wants to sit on, and linger at. Every time I sit in it I say how much I love these sofas. The leather is soft, not cold or stiff. And the low profile is so comfortable, and yet doesn't take up a lot of bulk. I could not be happier with this purchase.

              We have four kids, three under five, and the best thing about this sofa is that the leather wipes up and looks brand new. It's very comfortable and everyone loves it. The color is a great neutral as well.

                  I've seen light colored leather sofas pick up blue stains from people sitting on them wearing dark denim, so I'm wondering if that would happen with this sofa in the stone color. Any ideas? Thanks!
