LOVE THIS SOFA!
Karen from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer
I love the simple yet retro/modern design of this sofa! It's not too soft or too stiff - but just right. I got the Mouse Grey which looks like a soft/warm grey. It matches just about anything! I get a lot of guest asking me where I got my couch. The only thing is that deliver took a while - which is estimated for you. They called me to set up delivery and also called me an hour before they got to my apartment!
Melissa from Lubbock, TX– Verified Buyer
This is without a doubt one of the most well-made pieces of furniture I have ever bought. It looks like a piece of art, not just a piece of furniture, yet it is comfy, spacious and very durable! I plan to buy more pieces from this designer in the near future!
Great Mid Century Modern Piece
Tracy from Indianapolis– Verified Buyer
The sofa is stylish, beautiful, sturdy. I would complement a variety of decor schemes, but looks especially great in my mid-century modern living room.
Ryan from ANN ARBOR, MI– Verified Buyer
I have had this couch for about 2 years now. It is comfortable and has a minimal/low profile which I enjoy. Fits my space well.
Beverly from Okemos, MI– Verified Buyer
Looks and feels great. Fits beautifully with my mcm decor.
love this sofa.
janice from Palo Alto, Ca
This Sofa has been great so far. The fabric is soft and quite comfortable for such a modern design. We ordered this sofa and within two weeks it was at our door. What we thought was going to be a shipping company turned out to actually be Edgar Blazona the owner and designer of the company TrueModern. He helped me carry it in all the way to the living room. He even asked if he could help move the old one out. I was so surprised to meet the designer not to mention he went out of his way to help us. It was a very pleasant experience buying from allmodern.com. I look forward to buying again.
cracked leg after a year
Jennifer Graves from Los Angeles, CA
I love this sofa. It's beautiful and simple. The guys who delivered it just about a year ago were professional and on time. BUT, the sofa's right leg has started to CRACK. I've never jumped on the sofa. I (nor anyone who's happened to been in my home) is overweight, putting undue pressure on the sofa legs. There is no good reason the leg should be cracking off. I'm really disappointed.
Neil Cronin from Jamaica Plain, MA– Verified Buyer
It's great. Very comfortable. Like the style. Wish I had gone with the lighter finish on the legs, but that was my design fault. Love it.
Nester from AL– Verified Buyer
The sofa is really cool looking except that I wish the fabric quality was a bit higher. It is comfortable, long and deep, good for a nap.
Martha from Winnetka, CA– Verified Buyer
Goes perfectly with my Mid- Century modern design. Very comfortable and stylish.
