5.0 out of 5 stars | Beautiful, comfortable, sturdy
We've been using our new couch for about a week now and are very pleased with our purchase. It's the most expensive piece of furniture we've ever owned. Tired of hand-me-downs and cheap furniture that starts falling apart in a year or two we took chance on this one after spending some time researching online brands and sellers. The reviews on the company along with price made us decide on Poly and Bark. There are several brands with similar/identical looking couches. The other couch we were considering was the Article Sven which was $3299 at the time . The Napa was $2699. and looks near identical. That's a big difference in price. Got a holiday deal using our Amazon Prime Visa for 18 months 0% interest and that sealed the deal. I've read some of the reviews critical of the delivery process. We had good luck. Our couch arrived via XPO ahead of schedule and undamaged. I believe our delivery window was 12/7-12/16 and it arrived 12/11/20. The box had some minor dings but it was well packaged and undamaged. You will need some help! The box is HUGE! We are in a rural area and a tractor trailer can't get up our driveway so we had to meet the driver in town with our pickup. This is normal for us. We've received freight deliveries before. Took all 10 minutes to assemble inspect. We love the look and feel. We chose the semi-analine for durability and have no regrets. We were tempted by aniline for softness beauty but we have young grandchildren - nuff said 😉 It's super comfortable and we like the seat height for ease of getting up and down. Getting older- hate low furniture! Awesome for tatering after dinner watching TV. I'm 6'4" and I can lay long ways while my wife enjoys the chase ☺ May or may not be important to you. Ymmv Can't tell you about durability but it "feels" sturdy and well made. We're hopeful it's a 20 year couch. If I'm still around in 20 years and I remember I'll try to update my review! Good luck with your purchase no matter what you choose. 🙂

1.0 out of 5 stars | Stains and Dirt are NOT "A Patina"
Size: 88.5" Sofa
Color: Cognac Tan
A word of warning: I've finished raising seven kids and never had a couch that went downhill this fast, aesthetically. If you don't use it at all, it looks great. Or, if you use it in a NASA clean room, I suppose it would be fine. Otherwise be ready to spend a great deal of time & a fair amount of money cleaning & treating the leather and refluffing the cushions. Literally everything that touches it leaves a mark, a smudge, or a stain. If someone has a favorite spot to sit in, it doesn't take long for them to crush down the cushions and make it look like something you bought well used at a flea market when you were 18. The manufacturer describes all this as gaining a "patina." Well, if by Patina, they mean "Unless you treat it like a newborn child 24/7, In 3 months it will look like it belongs in front of your mobile home alongside a couple of old Chevies you have up on cinder blocks," they're correct. Yes, it's "Pure-Aniline Italian Tanned Leather." Just be aware of what that means in the real world.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great couch!
Size: Left Facing Sectional Sofa
Color: Cognac Tan
We love this couch. It is comfortable, and big. The pillows are soft and help for back support. The leather is high quality and it goes so well with our house. The delivery was about 3 hours later than planned, but other than that no complaints!

2.0 out of 5 stars | Sturdy and decent - but not top-notch or great quality!!!
Okay quality given the price. But craftsmanship is pretty substandard. Ottoman just arrived today and so far feels okay, we'll try it for a few days until the rest of the pieces show up. We'll see how the whole order put together look and feel. Might keep all the pieces, or the whole thing might end up going back... Compared to our US custom-made top-grain uncorrected leather 105" sofa at $3100 delivered, $3600 for a 105" sectional + ottoman are a good price. But so far, I can 100% say for sure that the assembly quality of this set cannot come close to our custom-made piece! Time will tell on how the frame, cushion, and leather hold up... Ordered the ottoman friday and FedEx delivered 6 days later. Not bad! Item is packed in a thin box w no padding. The ottoman actually takes up the entire box interiors, up to the edges. Only a super thin sheet of foam wraps around the whole thing inside. Luckily, there is nothing breakable. Legs are in a pouch inside the zippered storage compartment under the cushion, accessible from underneath. Pretty standard setup. Legs are even and have relatively matched finish, with plastic buttons at the bottoms to protect soft floors. The ottoman frame and internal bracing feel pretty sturdy, not massive or super heavy. But, feels pretty solid and inert. Leather surfaces look and feel pretty consistent. Color match well among them. But - yes here come the big BUTs... The way the leather pieces are attached together looks pretty crappy. The squares don't have straight edges. The cushion edges are wavy. I can't see how this would and should leave the factory? Anyway - as of now, I am 50/50... The sectional was ordered 2 days after, so it's coming soon in a week or two. Might do some exchanges to see if quality improves, if not - they all go back.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Best value for a leather couch I could find!
Size: 88.5" Sofa
Color: Cognac Tan
We shopped around hard, and could not find a couch that beat this one in price, style, and sturdiness! We opted for 2 couches rather than a sectional, just in case we move someday — we didn’t want to be attached to a right or left hand sectional. PLUS, the sectional was $1000 more, whereas a second couch was an additional $600, and offers a lot more seating. Pros: - Easy to assemble - Leather is thick and luxurious. Not at all plasticy feeling! - The single cushion seat is heaven for naps - Shipping was fast and easy Cons: - Seat is a little firm — it’s not a “bouncy” couch at all. BUT — the trade off is a high clearance under the couch, which I love. It makes my smallish living room feel a lot airier. - Can scuff, scratch, or stain easily. Again though, this the trade off of a buttery leather — it’s not soaked in plastic. I think all the buffs and scuffs just make it look endearingly worn in.
