  • Drew R
    Life Affirming
    Now everyone knows that a couch can't make your life significantly better. But what my review presupposes is...maybe it can? I love this, my new couch baby!
  • M.H.
    Very Happy
    I love my sofa, and I am very satisfied with my purchase. It is a beautiful and comfy sofa!
  • Jonathan B
    It's a good sofa
    We love sitting on our new sofa. Also, Joybird was very responsive when we decided to change the fabric. The only real downside is that we had an unexpected delay in the deliver so the sofa took ~5 weeks to arrive.
  • Janice
    This sofa is awesome!
    It's very comfortable and seems durable. It was delivered later than the initial arrival date, but the product is great. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I'd like to see how it stands up to the test of time, but so far so good!
  • Kristin L
    Love it!
    Very comfy and large enough to nap on for those taller than I am!
  • Jonathan
    Great Sofa! Even better Customer Service!
    I ordered this soda, not knowing anything about Joy Bird. But upon reading reviews, I felt like it was a safe investment. Great customer service, from ordering the swatches, to delivery. The sofa went on sale two times, while it was in production. A simple phone call and bam! Refund. Will definitely be ordering from Joy Bird in the future. ... 
  • Joanne K
    Outstanding experience and product
    From the moment I started the buying experience to the final receipt of the sofa, working with Joybird was an exceptional experience. Fantastic customer service, product quality, design and comfort.
  • Maggie G
    Love the fabric, color, and style, but legs could be better
    I'm repeating here what I said about the Briar chair - I wish Joybird offered other leg options. This sofa is super comfortable, and I *love* the prime dove fabric even more than I expected. It's perfect in my glam/midcentury living room. HOWEVER, those wood tapered hanger bolt legs are SO overdone and boring. When I visited their Brooklyn showroom ... 
  • Anelka A
    Briar Sofa, 2 years later
    Two years later and my Briar sofa is still going strong, which is saying a lot considering the abuse it takes from my dog and husband. The body and frame of the sofa are as sturdy and solid as they were on Day 1. The cushions and fill are still supportive and sturdy and ultra comfy (no saggy cushions here!!). ... 
  • Shannon S
    Love it
    I've received many compliments on this couch. It's comfy and wide. Perfect for Sunday afternoon naps or relaxing while watching TV.
  • Annika J
    10 out of 5.
    LOVE it. The color is gorgeous and the modern but classic design ties the room together while remaining a unique statement piece. I was even more thrilled that it is super comfortable and is definitely my new favorite reading place. Plus- my newly adopted dog has finally made himself at home and loves his new favorite spot.
  • Aaron B
    So comfy
    I never used to nap on the couch.... now I do, all the time.
