Abigail C.We have owned our leather Eliot sofa for about a month and a half. I had been eyeing it for two years before finally taking the plunge. My biggest hangups were the low back of the couch and fear that our dog/two young kids would ruin it in some way. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the low back is and while yes, the leather has received many scratches do to (mainly) the dog, our old sofa was a 25-year-old leather sofa and I know the wear on the leather gives it its character in time. This is easily the most expensive piece of furniture I’ve ever bought but Joybird made the experience very easy. I would recommend this sofa.
