I purchased this couch without letting myself consider it for a few days as I normally would. After couch shopping for several months and not finding anything that was quite right (so many couches are too soft!), when I saw the gorgeous wine colored velvet of this couch, read reviews that the cushions were fairly firm and the return policy is very generous, and knew it was on sale for Memorial day, I pulled the trigger.
While waiting for it to arrive, I worried a lit bit if the color would be right (I didn't opt for a swatch 😬), if I'd find it comfortable, and if my cat would want to scratch it.
As soon as it arrived, I knew it was PERFECT. The color is a deep, rich wine red-almost purple. The velvet is lovely and luxurious and my cat has no interest in even sitting on it, let alone scratching it, and the cushions are so comfortable!! It's the perfect mix of firm enough to give you support and soft enough to be comfortable. Highly recommend!
