This is June 24th, no response, no options, and no sofa for the houseful of company we are expecting in the next few days. Just send the couch to the dump and the love seat will go in a couple weeks. Its not real leather as we were told, its BONDED LEATHER!! Reputable store we bought it from reordered the right color and it just arrived, right color but 8 1/2 weeks later. The back "leather" panel buckles out and you see wood frame, the back of the "leather" panel is unfinished tan fabric and you see white padding! I realize it is a reasonably priced piece of furniture, but I still expect better.
Instead of replacing furniture, they should replace Supervisors! No manufacturer should take this long to deliver a product. I will find a way to disguise all this but if I can do it, so can, and should, they!!
Please contact us if you have a specific enquiry, I will happy to answer any queries.
