    My mom has a very nice 5th-wheel trailer that came with uncomfortable and less-than-convenient furniture. She ordered a couch and two modular ottomans to replace the old couch and two corner ottomans to make extra seating without blocking the big window. The storage is PERFECT for keeping her craft supplies hidden but accessible.

    She rearranged recently, also. Top pics are the original furniture the trailer came with, second pics are how she had things arranged at first, last pics are how she has it currently. Love how these pieces can be adapted to different purposes! The window seating is used as a bed for guests. No complaints on comfort!

    She and my brother had everything assembled in just a few hours, no broken or missing pieces. She chose Altima Sand for the fabric. Nice and bright. Thank you!

    I love the simple, quality approach of IKEA furniture. But we live Fairbanks, AK, thousands of miles away from an IKEA.
    Then I happened upon the Home Reserve website and saw their furniture with a similar approach.
    I've been researching all of this for over a month now.
    Even though the shipping costs alone for both a couch and love seat to Alaska is $421, (wow...you in the lower 48 get a screaming deal on shipping at $67 for a couch!) IT IS STILL LESS EXPENSIVE TO BUY FROM HOME RESERVE THAN BUYING LOCALLY IN ALASKA!
    So before I place an order, I decided to request fabric samples and take a look before I decide.
    The 7 samples of gorgeous fabrics arrived in 3 days.
    Then I got the bright idea to really put them to the test.
    I tried to rip and stretch them......to simulate grandkids kids jumping on it.
    They held up perfectly.
    Next, I cut the fabrics with scissors and tried to rip it further, or get it to unravel.
    It did not.
    Then I took a fork with sharp tines and raked the fabric as hard as I could repeatedly.....as if a dog might be digging into it.
    This caused a little pilling and roughness, but I could rub it out flat again with little or no obvious damage. IMPRESSIVE!
    My only reservation was on the pet fabric. Yes, Altima Cobalt blue is indestructible, I tried really hard to destroy it, and it held up beautifully. But it shows lint. It seems to want to attract and hold both dog hair and lint. I'm sure a weekly vac job would clean it right up, but I have decided on the more traditional fabric that seems to have less static that attracts particles.
    We will order our couch tomorrow in the Pulse line of fabrics. It stood up to the testing the best.

    We recently moved into a small apartment near where Nick's submarine (he works for the US Navy) is currently being built and were in desperate need of a comfy place to sit and relax. Jaimie stumbled across the and was amazed by how the furniture pieces are made especially for small spaces and that they were all eco-friendly. Anyways, we ordered a couch from y'all and while it took us some time to figure out how to put it together, we eventually figured it out and it was actually a pretty fun way to pass time during the big snowstorm out here. We are very, very, very happy with how the couch turned out and will definitely purchase from y'all again. Thank you!!! :D

    I was very impressed with the armless chair I received this week. It was easy to assemble and I love the support. I will admit I am still working on the hook of the Brook back cushion, but I will get it. I am a 70 year old woman who had total knee replacement 6 days before receiving the box. The next day I hobbled around and had the chair frame together in 30 minutes. I had to stop to ice the knee, but was easily able to finish the job. Thanks for creating such a wonderful product. As a Purdue Alumna, I am proud of your connection to our great institution.

    Best regards,
    Susan

    I just wanted to reach out to you and tell you how happy we are with our purchase! You were so nice on the phone, despite me being a pain in the you know what, and I really appreciate it. The 2-tone sectional turned out perfectly! We love the 2-tone leather with Pulse Citron and thank you for your confirmation on our color choices for the accent pillows, etc. We couldn't be happier. Here are a few photos. Our den is quite small and we haven't been able to figure out the best way to populate it...until now. Thank you! I plan on posting some photos to the Home Reserve website and FB page when I get more time. :)

    I was very skeptical before buying my sectional online but I got the courage to but after seeing such great reviews.
    I can not praise enough the experience I have had with homereserve and my sectional look beautiful.
    Assembly was very well documented in the manual and outcome is beautiful.
    I have just ordered more pieces from home reserve.
    My only problem after assembly is that corner piece is showing the wood.
    Wish I can get some of the fabric so I can staple or glue the fabric where wood is showing.
    My family room is looking very beautiful and worth every penny I spent.

    Thank you home reserve.

    I put together my chair tonight and it looks wonderful. It took me about two hours, but I started out with a screwdriver and then found my drill. I spent a lot of time on smoothing the fabric and I think it came out nicely. The instructions were very clear, the parts fit well together and it went very smoothly. The chair cushion is a little firm, as stated on the site, it will soften over time. I’m very happy with my purchase and look forward to getting a sectional in the pet fabric

    I highly recommend this sectional sofa! I have worked both in manufacturing and as a technical writer; so out of habit, I usually bring an unrealistically critical eye to anything that requires assembly, and to the manufacturer's assembly instructions. Having said that, I have no reservation in recommending this product. This sofa was manufactured to extremely tight tolerances; every part fit together exactly as it should. And the instructions are written with technical accuracy, and to the perfect level of detail for a general audience. We just put it together, so I can't say how this sofa will wear over time. But I can say that I like the way it is designed, and it was easy to assemble. Nice job to the Home Reserve team!

    Back again! (My previous comments are #2219, #2191, #2187, and #2178.)

    As I purchased my set during the summer, this was our first Christmas with it. My kids and I debated on different arrangements to best accommodate our tree and we settled on putting all the pieces together into one super long couch! It worked great, completely freeing up one wall. My teenager in the picture is 5' 9".

    The bottom picture shows how I arranged everything after putting the Christmas decorations away. This is the 9th different way I've had my living room configured. It's like playing with giant building blocks! I've decided to order one more piece - a Cozy Ottoman that can be moved around to wherever I need it since occasionally both of my current ottomans (Modular and Corner) stay attached.

    Seriously the best purchase I've ever made!

    (My set is the Laney style with Lapaz Coffee frame and Altima Sand cushions.)

    I thought I'd show you how I made one end of my Ray sectional into an office corner (wood placemats over the arms, office stuff over that) and how terrifically the storage holds a mega-kilo-raftload of small electronics that used to be scattered all over the living room and kitchen: chargers, spare cables, etc. The white, box-like "walls" you can see in the storage area — separating different categories of things — are actually the bottoms of plastic bottles and jugs (mostly gallon milk jugs and iced tea jugs) that I cut off to use as organizers. (Just cut the bottle or jug across, six inches up from the bottom. Then the bottom of the jug is a durable, usefully sized organizing box with an open top to hold lots of little things, and you can save the rest of the jug to be a household funnel if you need.) The best bottles/jugs to use for this are square and rectangular ones, because they will fill up the space more neatly than rounded ones.

    After using my Ray sectional for a week, I decided to make the arms into durably protected built-in end-tables by laying bamboo placemats over each arm and tucking the placemats' ends down between the arms and the seat cushions. The placemats moved a little bit when the seats they were near were in use, so I then went a step further and put some double-faced sticky carpet tape across the bottom ends of the placemats so that this tape would stick onto the bottom of the arms (in a place where it doesn't show). This keeps the placemats firmly where I want them, even when I pick up the seat cushions to go into storage,
    In the picture I'm sending, you can see this idea in use: protecting an arm of my Ray couch from a cast-iron tray I was using to sort out some odds and ends before putting them into storage under various seats (according to what they were. I have fabrics and yarn under one seat, small electronic parts under another, etc.)

    Another thing you can do with the Ray arms
    (that my husband and I actually started out doing, but decided in the end _not_ to go ahead with)
    is to install them _backwards_
    (so that the end you see as the front end of the arm would be the flat, rectangular end of the arm — which is normally in back — instead of the rounded end that typically goes in front).
    This actually works, VERY easily, and lets you have a slightly different look for the furniture, if you want something that looks even more "techno" than the regular "by-the-book" Ray ... and it would also give you about an extra inch-and-a-half of flat arm-top "real estate" if you want this.

    As I said, in the end we decided the regular by-the-book assembly was fine for us ... but we know we can change it at any time to this "flat and techno" variation simply by unbolting the arms and re-bolting them on backwards if we want that slightly different look). Maybe Home Reserve can do a video with someone showing both ways of attaching the Ray arms (the standard "rounded end in front" way, and the "flat end in front" variation), so that people can see and try out this extra possibility for customizing the arms on a Ray piece.

    Oh ... I almost forgot two great tip to helps when you are assembling Home Reserve furniture in the first place.

    /1/ Be aware that, when Home Reserve or any other furniture company talks about left and right (for instance, when a piece is labeled "left arm section" or whatever), this is always from the viewpoint of somebody standing in front of the furniture, NOT from the viewpoint of the person who's sitting in it! (My thanks go to Sandy Wood in Customer Service for making this clear, when my husband and I got stuck trying to figure out which piece was which when we were looking at our left and right sectional pieces and their arms.)
    ALSO —
    /2/ If you have had trouble getting the cloth covers on over things — such as the cushions and/or the multi-colored foam pieces that are used to fill out the arms and the top rails of the furniture — you can avoid much of that trouble by using a little bit of double-faced sticky carpet tape again. Put it on the piece of wood that a multi-colored foam piece is going to sit in (for instance, in the groove that holds the top rail foam, or in the hollow place on the arm that is for holding the cushiony tip of the arm), and maybe put some pieces on the frames/cushions before you cover them with the cloth. (It isn't hard to find places where you wouldn't feel them when you sat down: for example, along/near the edges off he cushions instead of right in the middle of the cushion surfaces.)

    This is our beautiful Home Reserve couch in our living room! Other things you see (such as the spread, throw pillows, and ottoman) are things we had before from other sources. A real plus, for us, is that there is so much storage space — especially when you factor in the storage space that's outside the "official" storage compartment under the seat! On Home Reserve pieces with seat backs, the seat backs are hollow and can be reached when the seat storage is open — making the space under the seat backs a great place to put items that can sit on the floor (such as canned food, tool kits, and so on). This just about doubles the storage space, and allows the "official" storage space (the box under the seat) to be used for things that need to be in a box to be protected. ANOTHER STORAGE TIP: When you assemble your furniture, take some Scotch tape and put it over the cut-out numbers that are carved into the different sides of the box pieces. This will stop small items from falling through them.

    I recently purchased the Pulse Cocoa Laney Love Seat and Pulse Cocoa Standard Ottoman and couldn't be more pleased with both. I easily maneuvered both boxes on the scheduled delivery date without trouble. I would definitely recommend a second person to help assemble as there are times when four hands are required to complete the assembly. I recommending sanding the pieces with the supplied sandpaper, too. Installing the durable, beautiful fabric over the foam was the biggest challenge, especially maintaining straight seams on corners. The most pleasant surprise is the spacious storage in both the love seat base and ottoman. I would definitely consider additional purchases with Home Reserve in the future.

    We purchased our sofa of 10 pieces 1.5 to 2 years ago. It fits so nicely in our space. We love the storage, the fact that the Altima pet fabric can be vacuumed, wiped clean or thrown in the washer.
    However, for the past few months the cushions don't seem to be as firm. It is no longer comfortable. When you sit on it, you sink to the wood base. I thought it was just me but my husband just told me he is noticing the same thing.
    Not looking forward to replacing 10 cushions. Have you upgraded to a firmer foam?

    • We only have 1 foam density. If you email customer service we will be happy to help.

    My husband and I purchased our Home Reserve sofa set last March. We love the fact that you can replace parts of the sofa and it's pet friendly. After going thru 2 sofa's from Ashley Furniture in the past 6 years we were done with trying to find a set that fits our long and narrow living room. My husband told me about Home Reserve and I was very skeptical since it was an online thing! Well I was 100% satisfied after he put it together. We got the Ali sofa with the Altima Hickory cover and really like the texture and color. The fact that if the dog licks himself and leaves a mark we can throw the cover in the washer and throw it right back on. So far my only complaint is that when my husband or my father sit on the couch the cushions push out and the sofa looks crappy. I have to take each cushion off and put it all back together so it looks straight again. I wish there was a way to fix that issue since I'm finding myself fixing the cushions just about everyday.

    We are thrilled! We placed our order and had everything assembled for Christmas (which was easier than I expected) , everyone loved the new sectional. They were amazed at how much storage there was. It was so simple to pull out blankets, movies and games when everyone was here. We had so much seating. We moved the one modular ottoman against the wall for two more people (one adult, one child). Movie nights have been fantastic, everyone is cozy! My 9yr old LOVES the corner (and the cat quickly comes to join us).
    As I always wondered what I was seeing in the photos, here is a breakdown of what we ordered. Fabric - Altima Toast, Arms- Ali, 1 corner, 5 armless, 1 cozy ottoman, and 2 modular ottomans. The arms are much more comfortable than I expected due to the thick foam on top of the wooden frame and the flat surface is perfect for a laptop/plate/remotes, etc.
    Thank you Home Reserve for an outstanding experience and amazing customer service. I went with each of your suggestions and am so happy I did. It was really having a tough time deciding between Altima Toast and Latte but you were absolutely right when you said it will be lighter than how it appears in the swatch. Matched the new carpet perfectly and lightened up the room a bit. I was also considering 3 corners rather than 1 corner and 2 arms. Ali arms was the perfect recommendation for what we wanted, they also provided extra space for placing things which is a great plus!

    I ordered a couple of pieces at a time and finally have had whole couch for several months now and am liking it very much. Love that it has storage and is very stylish and sturdy. Not sure about all the comments about it being hard on the outside because I find it to be just fine. The material is easy to clean and is very sturdy and beautiful also. Very please and have recommended to friends and family.

    I received my armless tux chair with the mollusk fabric. I order one piece to see if I like it and if it was easy to assemble. Turns out all I had to do was hand my daughter the screws and help with the fabric. My daughter Shaileen is 23yrs. old and she enjoyed putting it together. I enjoyed watching her it was very well instructed and it was done in 40 min. we didn't have one issue....except I wish I had the rest of the sectional to put together. My other children love it and now since we only have the one armless chair everyone is fighting to sit on it. I just ordered the rest of the sectional. I know with the holidays it might take a little longer to receive but, I really hope they rush my order after they get back from celebrating. I can't wait!!! I am a skeptical person but, just the one armless chair has me convinced that my research into finding the perfect sized sectional for my space has been answered!!! Thank you Home reserve!!!

    We love the furniture. We got the tux sectional sofa first and ordered the chairs and ottomans a few weeks later. They are easy to put together and upholster. We love the storage and put all the blankets away where they aren't seen. It's been great for our family of seven and have plenty of room to spread out if we want to.

    So my husband bought me the ray couch in ultima toast. I had been telling him how much I wanted a couch through this company and how cool everything about it was. Not only do we like the couch, but the customer service is outstanding. I just got off the phone with one of the gals there. We are converting a big dresser thing into a bench and want the cushions to match our couch, she was so helpful, offering all kinds of tips, trying to find cushion styles that would fit, and offering to sell us the fabric if we choose to go the diy route with the cushions as well. So our current couch, a comfortable sitting couch, the only not super upside is its not a great sleeper, but really, how often do people sleep on the couch. The petcare fabric has been wonderful. Our cat was going through a uti when we got the couch, and decided it was his pee spot. The water resistant fabric stopped it from getting into the foam cushion, and the fabric is so quick and easy to take off and wash. If we had any other type of couch I probably would have lost my mind, but our homereserve couch made it much more bearable. I had originally thought I`d like a softer arm, but my husband`s choice of the ray has worked out great, we put a coaster on the arm and use it as an end table. It`s very convenient. I`m adding a photo of my dogs modeling the couch. They definitely give it their stamp of approval, and I approve of being able to clean their muddy paws off the couch so easily.
