we got a brook sectional with yoga ash material. we love it! this was our second purchase from home reserve. we have another sectional from them in our sunroom that we got a few years ago. it took my husband about 10 hours to put together....thank goodness he didn't mind so much. it would be great if you had workers that could put them together for those who are not so handy...
I have a studio and wanted a sectional to try and separate areas, but most sectionals were a few inches to big. I came across this site and thought I would give it a try - I custom-made my own design.
I got 5 pieces and they each came in their own box (so five boxes). Took about a week from when I first purchased it. Assembly was super easy. Best way I can explain it is that you have a 15-piece puzzle and each piece is labeled with a number and your instructions tell you exactly where to put each piece. The only annoying part was putting it together. It gets tedious. While REALLY easy, it took a while. Took me 4 1/2 hours for my 5 piece couch. If I never see another screw again I'll be happy too.
The finished product was great. It fit perfectly where it needed to go and is real comfortable - much better than Ikea. If I could improve one thing it would be the storage solution. While a good idea, I wish the cubbies were more finished instead of just all wood. I feel like anything you put in there would need to be protected within a bag or something.
The idea of building your own couch seemed weird to me at first, but while putting it together I realized this is actually how all couches are made anyways we generally just see the final product. Definitely recommend this to anybody looking for a unique solution.
I just moved into a new apartment and needed extra seating so I ordered the Monroe loveseat. Like many other people, I was skeptical because the price was so reasonable. It seemed too good to be true. Well, I received my loveseat yesterday (about a week and a half early!) and between my boyfriend and I, we were able to get it together in less than an hour. I was surprised when I found it is very solidly constructed, easy to put together, and COMFORTABLE! My current couch is a difficult color to match, and was ecstatic when I was able to find a fabric color that is almost a dead-on match! I would definitely recommend Home Reserve to my friends (in fact, I already have). If I ever need more furniture, I know I will order from Home Reserve again.
I had a problem. Home Reserve was my solution.
We have a nearly new travel trailer with one of those horrible jack-knife sofas. We travel for about 4 months of the year and after a month, the fabric and foam was deteriorating badly. There was no support for my back or seat in the centre of the unit. This is a common problem, so replacing the unit with another one seemed expensive and silly.
Then I found Home Reserve. They sent me fabric swatches and we discussed my situation on the phone. As I live in Canada and could easily pass by Fort Wayne on my return trip, we decided to check out the furniture.
We were met by Sandi, who figured the travel trailer behind the car was a give-away as to who we were. We were delighted with the quality of the furniture. So we chose fabric and measured and planned our new seating area. Imagine our delight when she told us that our units would be ready in about an hour.
They vacuumed packed our sofa and ottoman sections into 2 boxes and off we went.
We finally got the old jack-knife frame out and the new cushions installed. We only bought the cushions, as we had our own frame which had to remain to cover our furnace, water tank etc. I will purchase some more fabric to cover the toe-kick board soon.
Thank-you to Sandi and all the workers at Home Reserve. This was a wonderful experience and will continue to sing your praises and direct people in your direction.
We have had our small sectional for about five months now. It fits so perfectly in our small studio apartment. We love the slim design. Our guests have consistently complemented it. The storage area holds all of our seasonal decor while the attached ottoman can actually fit my entire laptop with ease. We chose the Ali arms, which we love. Although it seems my cats love it as a running ramp even more! Ah well, at least I know I can order replacement fabric! Overall, I have to say that our home reserve sofa was more than we could have asked for on our budget and we love it.
We are going on 8 yrs with our sofas and chair. Still love it. Now on our fourth military move and thinking about adding the sectional for the den!
I feel a little guilty that it's taken me so long to write up a review for our suhhhhhhhhhhhweeeet love seat (whoops, just gave my opinion away in the first sentence here didn't I?)
I will add my voice to many others and say that we LOVE our love seat.
Like name it Ed and make it part of the family and force vistors to admire what I store in the seats, to their amusement, sort of love.
First of all, we have have our love seat well over a year now so at least my opinion on it is well seasoned and not just the first blush of new romance sort of "carried away by the excitement" of a piece of furniture delivered to my door sort of opinion.
In fact it's been about 14 months since we first sat upon our lovely little love seat!
STILL LOVE IT!
You know how people define portions of their carpets in their homes as "high traffic areas"?
Well our love seat is a HIGH TRAFFIC area. Meaning our butts are planted on it, several times a day, every day. Two, adults, neither of us skinny or short, sir on our love seat for every meal we eat. We have a table on gliders scooted right up to our little sofa so that it is basically our own diner booth seating. You can be jealous, I don't blame you.
So we sit there for every meal, for television watching or whatever.
The cushions are still comfy, cozy awesome!
I will admit that they loose some of their almost over the top firmness within the first week of use. That made me nervous in the beginning as I was fearful they would loose that much cushiony firmness wach week or month but NO. Rest assured after an initial sinking in adjustment period where the cushions went from very firm and high to just right, they stayed that way! Sweet!
I forget sometimes there is even storage under the cushions, that we are not sitting on springs...it's weird because you get used to spring sofas every where and would be not as quick to stand on those sort. We have a shelf behind our love seat and every once in a while I need something form the top shelf and realize DUH I can just stand on the sofa. It's firm and secure and very very very strong and not at risk for busting a spring because there ARE NONE!
We use the storage spaces to store all of our Wii video games and supplies under one seat (dang those spaces can hold a LOT) and the other holds all of those annoying warranty cards and manuals and receipts etc for things that you need to store but most likely will never need but can't throw them out...perfect place to put them!
I'd store treasure under the seats in the storage spaces but since I have shown off those cubbies to every one they are no longer so secret and I don't really have any treasure...YET!
We especially love that if something ever should break or need replacing on our sofa that we can get replacement parts. That is BRILLIANT!!!! I mean, that should be the ONLY way sofas etc should be made!
We live in a throw away society and we have done our part to make previous sofas and love seats last (with our spending a fortune cause like I mentioned earlier, no treasure to hoard yet so we are not rich) last us as long as possible before need to dispose of them. We're talking rip open the bottoms and try our hand at re-springing etc to make old sofas last as long as possible, =but eventually you realize it just hurts to sit on them any longer....
It also hurts to spend more on getting a sofa recovered or resprung than it does to buy a new sofa.....acccck
But with our lovely little love seat, putting it together yourself gives you a really good idea of how it's made, how strong it is and should anything ever need replacing all the pieces are numbered and I have no doubt that we will be able to get those pieces from Home Reserve.
Even replacement cushions! That is BRILLIANT!
I purchased washable covers for our cushions and have so far washed them several times as per the instructions that came with them and they are holding up beautifully!
I am going to overuse the world brilliant now but seriously...BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT!!! Being able to remove all of the fabric when and if you need to make your sofa look like new again is....brilliant!.
So, now you can understand why I felt a little guilty taking so long to write my review. Because we really love our love seat (we got the armless one with separate back cushions) and I scoured reviews online before committing to our purchase and fully understand how helpful reviews are. So, there's mine.
I suppose if I had to pick ANY negative about the love seat it would be the sides where the wooden side pieces come up to meet the side of the seat cushions, I have banged my shin on them a couple of times scrambling on and off the sofa in a hurry, but that was me exiting the sofa form the side instead of the front so probably a non-issue for people but if you have kids, it is a possibility. We're adults with no kids so it suits us perfectly.
Also you can't really kneel onto the sofa form the side, same deal, you'll bang your shins.
But that's a rare occurrence and I had to think hard to think of a negative.
Love our love seat, it suits us perfectly, been used DAILY for multiple meals etc for over a year, by two adults (200 lbs and 185 lbs, 6' and 5'6") and it is still fantastic! Comfortable and functional.
I am so excited about the furniture!! I wish you were around 10+ yrs ago! My dog chewed my new couch the day after I bought it!! I have told several people about your furniture, and gave them your web-site. I love the swatches, seeing the colors in your home, and feeling the textures, really helped make up our minds. I hope you get lots of business, and stay around for a long time!
Living in NH, with 2 big dogs
we love our new sectional and plan on adding more!The pet fabric is the best having three Pit bulls the pet fabric was a must. I'am telling every one this is the best stuff around. This is proof America can still make the best stuff around!
I have owned my sofa for seven years. After having gone through several expensive couches, we can't be more pleased with this purchase. We love changing the covers and being able to replace parts. I am ordering my second one today, to add to the previous one, which is still going strong.
I am writing this review sitting on my just arrived, just assembled, risk free trial armless chair...My first impression as I saw took a moment to look at the completed frame without cushions was this looks a little small...almost like a kid's room piece of furniture. Then I put the cushions on it & it resembled the futon we currently have...but much more comfy! I am excited to get the rest of the pieces to the sectional I want and finally be able to sit on a piece of furniture in my house without my legs going numb! A couple pieces of advice: Use the gloves that came with it, and if it's not too hot or cold outside, you can avoid a bit of mess with sand dust if you assemble it outside and then bring it in. It came with a small fine sanding sponge which was great...the OCD in me was cringing at the thought of just covering up those raw, waiting to splinter, raw edges!
I received my Laney sofa today and assembled it and I'm in love! It completed the remodel I did on my living room and fits perfectly in my space. I will definitely be purchasing more from your company, the delivery was faster than expected, the sofa is comfortable, easy to put together and your prices are perfect for someone on a budget it's also a great feeling to know that I purchased an American made product for my home! Love your Facebook photos and videos as well!
I adore our new sectional. Right now we are using it as a stand alone corner unit and a couch. I like that I have so many arrangement options. The fabric is superb. We have 2 cats that are mostly fur and the hair wipes off so easily. I recommend Home Reserve to everyone. My son has ordered several pieces and is just as impressed as we were. It is awesome to see items that are so useful, gorgeous, and affordable made by American workers. Their pride shines through in their workmanship! Thank you for great service and an equally great product.
Hello: about 3 years ago (maybe more??) I ordered the sectional and two ottomans. They are the most comfy furniture in the house, even over the Lazyboy sofa I have. So, I am ordering a chair and a half! Thanks for a super product, not to mention made in USA!
I have never posted about a product before, but this one is deserving of it. I received my Monroe sofa and corner ottoman yesterday, both in the knockout Indigo fabric. I was very, very weary about the whole product and putting it together. I am pleased to say it is a great couch and ottoman, very sturdy, comfortable and the fabric is quite strong and cleans beautifully. As stated below I am impressed too! The storage is great! I have a 5 year old and all those toys and books that are left without a home all day and just clutter up a room go in there, and I even put my blow dryer and brushes in the ottoman compartment... all that stuff that can make a room look messy etc. I am relieved I do not have a "furniture payment" at this time......I could have easily went to the store and spent two grand on some pieces and regret it later. This is in a rec. room and serves it's purpose. any negatives? not so much.....I had a little trouble getting the wood supports into the ottoman pockets, that's about it. I do wish they had more of a country, or French country fabric to choose from....some of the patterns for the pillows I loved, but was told that fabric is not sturdy enough for sofa/couch use...I'm glad they were honest. Thank You, very happy with my furniture!
I have bought one loveseat and 2 chairs. At first, I was very happy with them all. But after sitting in the chairs I have noticed that the couch is seriously not made for larger size women, let alone men. The company is outstanding, the fabric is outstanding but the seat area on the couch is just not comfortable unless you always just want to sit upright with both feet directly on the floor like waiting in a Doctor's office. I'm sorry to say something negative but this is the truth. If you are above average in size, do your research. I like to sit on my legs to the side. This is virtually impossible to do with my size of 250 pounds. Yes, I know that is large but that is beside the point. In our past couches, I was still able to sit this way, comfortably.
We have had our Monroe HR sectional for about 5 years. We still love it just as much as when we first bought it. it has worn very well. We have two children and they have been with us during the entire time that we have had the couch. I spot clean it, but i have taken the covers off and machine washed them with no problems. The structure is great, love the storage. I highly recommend this furniture. I am only just now thinking of ordering a new corner cushion as it is layed on every night by my husband for t.v. watching, but even with that, it looks great. The foam cushions have held up nicely. I would definitely buy again.
A follow up: Today the Home Reserve Customer Service contacted me. They read my comment and wanted to let me know they are sending a cushion cover to replace the one that has a flaw. Wow. I didn't even need to request it!
Will I buy from Home Reserve again? Absolutely! Will I recommend Home Reserve to other? ONLY EVERYONE I KNOW!!! I love their innovative designs and fair pricing.
Home Reserve knows the key to building business: Great Customer Service coupled with a Great Product. Thank you!
I ordered two sofas with some trepidation (I mean, who orders furniture online without being able to test for comfort - and I'm pretty particular) but the entire design and renewability concept sold me on it. Also, I had looked at many furniture stores and wasn't having any luck finding something within my budget that I was comfortable sitting on. So I must confess I am very surprised at how happy I am these Home Reserve sofas! As most everyone comments, the Customer Service is excellent and the sofas even arrived in time to assemble them before Christmas! (That was a bonus!) They look great & although they are not a typical feeling sofa I actually like them more every day.
The descriptions say the seat cushions are firm; they are VERY firm -almost hard but not at all uncomfortable. I ordered the tight back model, which has the very firm foam seat back as well and the overall comfort is great. I love the storage, assembly instructions are very thorough - even the fabric is better than I expected. I had ordered several samples & frankly thought that all of them were too thin to be durable. But after wrestling the fabric over the arms (that is the hardest part of assembly - the fabric fits very tightly over the arms) my hat is off to the fabric & the stitching, too!
I'd like to offer a couple of tips for assembly. We figured these things out after the first sofa so the second one went together a little easier and a little faster:
1. A sanding block is included. The instructions say you don't have to sand but I would strongly suggest you DO SAND THE ARM SECTIONS - all around the edges where the fabric will slide over. I say slide, but 'work it over' is more accurate. As I stated before, this is a very tight fit. I don't have the gripping strength in my hands to do this part, even with my own gloves that have the rubberized grip on them I wasn't able to move the fabric. No even on the sanded arms. But Hubby says the sanding helped and I could see he was progressing faster after sanding.
2. He also found that when he did get the fabric almost all the way over the arms, his hands hit the floor - he needed more space betweent the arm and the floor in order to finish working the fabric down. The fabric continues about an inch or so past the bottom of the arm structure so it can connect underneath the arm. We grabbed a couple of cement blocks to set the arm on while he was working it, and that helped speed up the process and was less tiring for him. A few blocks of wood or what have you will work - just to lift the structure and keep it stable.
Everything else went together well. As I said before, the instructions were good. The frame was easy and even the cushions weren't difficult to cover. One cushion cover has a slight defect on one side, but its just a blemish in the fabric. Everything else looks really good! Made in the US, replaceable covers, great service, reasonably priced - what a great product!
Thank you, Home Reserve!
I absolutely LOVE my furniture. THNAK YOU HOME RESERVE. I was skeptical but when I got it and put it together, I was amazed how strong and beautiful it is! I have FOUR dogs and none of them have been able to destroy the Altima fabric. The Yellow is gorgeous - very subtle and not overwhelming in my very small mountain cabin. This is one of gthe best purhases I have ever made. Plus, I am so GRATEFUL this is a US company employing US citizens using US materials. Go America! Go Home Reserve. I will definitely buy again (I just bought four pillows) and wow a ***** star product.
Looking for a sectional that fit into our unique space has been a challenge - until we found Home Reserve! We ordered the armless sample first to see how the comfort was. My wife is a very "comfort sensitive" person and is quite peculiar in her comfort preferences. To give an example, we test drove over twenty vehicles until she found the one that was comfortable for her preferences - hence why I ordered the sample piece first instead of the whole thing. We received the package yesterday and I assembled it fairly easily. The true test was when my wife sat down on it and her eyes lit up saying she couldn't believe that this was more comfortable than our current two year old sofa! That was all I needed. I ordered the rest of the sectional today and look forward to getting it as quickly as possible. Not only was it very comfortable, but the ability to customize the setup to our living space is such a huge bonus as well!
I received the first piece of my sectional sofa, the arm-less section, the other day to tryout. I had fun putting together all of the pieces and making a chair, glad that gloves were included. Assembly and upholstering took about an hour all together. The instructions are well laid out for even an inexperienced person, can follow clearly. My girlfriend is still skeptical, but I enjoy it and will be ordering the rest of the sectional.
Just wanted to express my appreciation for the wonderful customer service and the beautiful new covers for my Monroe loveseat and sofa that I ordered and recieved recently.
I've had both for 6 years now, and the Hondo creme covers are absolutely gorgeous - both sofa and loveseat look like brand new pieces of furniture. My daughter, our cat, and I LOVE our Home Reserve furniture. Definitely I would recommend your wonderful company to anyone.
I wanted to tell you how pleasantly surprised I was when I contacted your company because one of my kids broke my sofa. I would like to set the stage by saying that about three years ago I was TOTALLY broke and needed a new sofa. I had to find the most economical piece of furniture available and it creeped me out to think about getting something from the Good Will store or something used because I was worried about bedbugs, etc. Anyhow, I was on line searching for options and I said to my boyfriend, "All I want is just a cheap, sh**-y sofa". As a joke he typed that phrase into the search field and Homereserve.com was the first thing that popped up in the search. (I am not sure which keyword was a match, but that is a true story). Anyhow, long story short, I was able to find a really NORMAL, functional piece of furniture that I could afford. Because of the low price, I didn't have much hope for it lasting very long. Boy, was I wrong. This is the BEST thing I ever did. At the time I got the sofa I had three crazy dogs that insisted on LICKING the sofa all the time and they were always full of mud also. It was totally disgusting. Before getting my sofa from Home Reserve I used to throw sheets over the old sofa so keep it from getting dirty and smelly from the dogs. I was very happy when I saw that you had covers that were WASHABLE!!!! Dog owner's dream sofa! So I still thought this probably would just be kind of a piece of junk and it wouldn't last very long. Well, again, was I wrong on that one. I only have one dog left, but I still wash the cushion and pillow and armrest covers at least once a month. They still look brand new. Also, a couple weeks ago, one of my step kids plopped on the sofa real hard and broke one of the boards. I don't mean that they just kind of plopped down on it--they are BIG kids-teenagers- and really banged down on it really, really hard. One of the pieces on the back cracked. I thought I was going to have to buy a new sofa or something. I couldn't remember the name of the company, so once again, I went to the internet and typed in the same phrase I mentioned before. Once again, Home Reserve popped up! I contacted your customer service department by e mail to ask if I could purchase a replacement piece. They got back to me the next day and told me that I had a 10 year warranty and they just shipped out the piece that the kids had busted!!! It was here like a day later. I thought it was amazing on several levels--First of all that they didn't try to take advantage of the fact that I didn't even know I had a warranty and try to charge me for the replacement piece, second of all that the response was so quick and third that they over-nighted the piece to me.
So I realize this is kind of a rambling correspondence, but I was so happy that they did this and that my sofa is now fixed and I don't have to purchase another one (because I am still totally broke!). I am usually not very complementary about customer service experiences because for the most part, customer service is pretty bad these days, but the experience I have had with your company has been totally awesome and I just wanted to let you know how much I like my sofa and how happy I have been with dealing with your company.
Hope you have a great day and a happy holiday.
Just finished assembling the 5 piece Laney sectional for an area in our basement where our granddaughters can play video games and watch TV with their friends. It looks great and they love it. The modular design was perfect since regular sofas won't fit down the stairs. It is really comfortable and I wish I had known about it before I purchased the much more expensive and very uncomfortable sofa (purchased on line) in our upstairs family room. This is a great company which provides prompt replies to questions and ships quickly. One of the best thing about them is they manufacture their product in the USA. IKEA had better watch out!
Again, I can't say enough about Home Reserve. I purchased an entire sectional back in 2010. I have enjoyed it very much. The quality, the storage, size, everything. Recently I fostered a dog that chewed up the covers on the cushions and got to some of the foam cushion too. Oy. Anyway, I called, got the replacement covers I needed and the foam cushion. Went with a different matching fabric for the cushions and wow is it beautiful. Feel like I have whole new living room, very nice change. If you are thinking about this purchase, don't hesitate. Great investment. Great customer service. A+++ company.
I just received the first piece of my sectional, I want to try out the furniture before buying the rest. I am looking forward to assembling the Armless and trying it out this weekend. I have been looking for a sectional that was inexpensive, durable and can be expanded on...the only one that I have found that meets these requirements is Home Reserves. I have checked sectionals at the large furniture stores and none of them offer a 10 year warrantee, let alone a risk free trial. I especially like that each piece is a storage unit, my girlfriend and I live in a small apartment and space is an issue. I will update everyone after I put the Armless together.
This was my 3rd Home Reserve order - this time a loveseat for my basement man-cave/music room. Once again, I was thrilled with the quality and appearance of the furniture. What inspired me to again post on the guestbook, however, is fact that it is obvious that the Home Reserve folks pay very close attention to their customers. The only complaint I could imagine making about the previous pieces of furniture was the way that different sections were connected. This was improved using the new, simplified wing-nut solution. I never cease to be amazed with the engineering and quality of this furniture. In a world of over-priced cheap stuff, it's so refreshing to be able to get such a quality product for so little. I recommend you to everyone, and several friends and family members are now home reserve owners - thanks again!
We recently ordered a black leather sectional. We emailed and asked if we could get it shipped to us asap, so we'd have it for Thanksgiving. The company was very accomodating and kind. We got the boxes (11 in all - yikes!) and assembled the sectional in about 5 hours. The section has 2 corners, 6 armless, 2 sides and an ottoman. The kids loved being part of the assembly - we took lots of pictures and made it a fun family project. We have absolutely loved this sectional. We are very impressed and will buy more furniture from HR in the future.
I wanted to let you know how very happy we are with the purchase of the Laney love seat and the Black Kirby fabric. I am remodeling both of my daughter's homes (interior and only one at a time), and had been searching for the perfect love seat for my daughter's office. She wanted 'fun, feminine, colorful' in her office. I was extremely distressed over not finding what I wanted - just one of those 'when I see it, I will know it' moments. During a web search, your site came up and lo and behold WHAM! There it was - a beautiful, soft designed sofa with the perfect measurements, and fabric galore to choose from. I chose the Kirby Black and the love seat is absolutely stunning! My daughter is thrilled with the choice and could not believe it when I told her 'dad and I put it together in about an hour and a half'.
We did review your videos prior to purchase - he is rather handy to say the least and was absolutely amazed at the precision cuts, the ease, the clear, concise directions.
Thank you for making my life easier and my daughter's office perfect! I will be purchasing additional pieces as I continue onward remodeling.
Really like my loveseat, at first it was a bit overwhelming , but finally got it all together and was proud of my finished product. I like it so much until I will order the matching chair. I am very pleased with the quality of your merchandise. What a creative way of designing great furniture. Thank you for such prompt service.
We made our second purchase from Home Reserve and I just wish I had purchased furniture like this when I was younger. To be able to replace individual pieces of fabric to replace anything that gets damaged when needed, being able to enlarge the seating system over time is just great. We first bought a chair and a half and a loveseat. Now that we have more room we ordered corner and armless pieces and made a U shaped sectional that fits our small livingroom perfectly. The customer service rep was most helpful and kind. Like I said, I wish I had been purchasing and using this furniture long ago.
I will say, I underestimated the weight of the boxes. They are heavy. That aside, once I got my boxes upstairs, the steps to assemble were so easy to understand. I put the whole thing together by myself in about four hours. The only tools I needed was a drill with a phillip head screwdriver and a hammer to tap in the pieces. I purchased the LaPaz saddle leather laney couch. It looks and feels fabulous! Thank you for such a great product!
my husband and i purchased a sofa 5 years ago and we love it. Living in an older home we had a problem with conventional furniture because our doors are so narrow so this was the way to go for us. It has been 5 years and we still love it, we are getting ready to order a new cover for it and order a love seat to match.
My son also ordered a sofa for his bedroom and loves it as well.
We are very happy with home reserve and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Fascinating example of American entrepreneurship.
I built something like one of your sofas when I moved to CA 22 years ago. Used as a bed but it had underneath storage and bookshelf end pieces. I used a mattress and some throw pillows as cushions,
I have never seen anything like it on the market but I did not consider the opportunity. Great job of refining the concept, assembling the necessary resources, working out the potential problems and addressing the questions that customers have.
BTW I will undoubtedly be purchasing one soon.
NEVER thought we would be able to get a sofa in the basement after the built ins were added to the bottom of the stairs...guess what... the sectional boxes were not heavy and moved perfectly around the tight corner! The sectional was easy to assemble and looks fabulous! Just ordered an additional piece because there is plenty of room!! Thanks
I just got a Laney Chair-and-a-Half and a Standard Ottoman in Hondo Apple for my 9-year-old daughter's bedroom and they are both AMAZING!! She is an avid reader and needed somewhere to cuddle up with a book or even hang out with friends, and had a space in her room that this chair fit into perfectly! She LOVES it! The ottoman was a breeze to assemble - took me maybe an hour - and the chair-and-a-half took a total of 5 or so, but very simple and easy-to-follow directions and everything was labeled so clearly! Not complicated or difficult at all! Yet very sturdy and a "real" piece of furniture! It took me a little longer, though, because I lined the entire inside storage areas of both the ottoman and chair with pretty contact paper and matching paint so they were smooth and easily-cleanable and pretty for her. I highly recommend doing that! It looks amazing and is very functional and was not hard at all, considering the pieces are mostly flat and since the instructions are so clearly diagramed and laid out, you can even figure out where each piece is going to go in the finished product and contact paper it first before putting it together to make it easier! The Hondo Apple fabric is wonderful! Very soft and fuzzy and comfortable, yet durable and cleanable! Love it! It's not quite as bright grass-green as it appears on my computer, but we are thrilled with the actual fabric color - exactly as it says, an 'apple' green. I love, too, that it feels very microfiber-y soft and velvety, but doesn't get those annoying stripes and handprints like a true suede-y microfiber does. I also love how perfectly the covers fit on - it does not look like a 'cover' at all! There isn't a wrinkle or bunch or any clue of a cover anywhere! It looks like it came that way! All in all, I am really truly impressed with the company, the selection, the ordering process, the shipping costs (less than a quarter of what other sites were charging!) and speed, the ease of assembly, the fabric, the quality, the value, the sturdiness, and the finished product in general! Will definately be coming back for more in the future!
Just bought brook style sectional and I love it just right for my small living room. Can't say enough about it I love it and its made in the USA. Which is the best thing.
I bought a sectional 3 years ago and just want to express how happy I am with it. I bought the altima pet care fabric (aqua) and it is great. You can wipe stains and hair off with a wet washcloth. It is wonderfully soft and comfortable. The only negative was that you do have to be ok with the osb board smell for a few weeks when it's new. But the storage underneath is great and I would definitely buy another couch from them. It's especially great that you can buy replacement covers or pillows, if you need them or change covers to change colors if you want to.
I ordered and assembled most of a sectional in the Fall, have been waiting for my tax return to come in to finish it. The assembly was extremely easy. I used a power drill and had no problems. The only minor glitch was that some of the holes used to bolt the sectional together were not all the way drilled through, but that was easy to fix. My 88 y.o. father, who is Mr. Fix It, was very puzzled by the design of the frame but ended up getting involved in the cushion stuffing and eventually the couch sitting. It was somewhat difficult to get him off the sofa, actually. Over time, the cushion I sit on the most has become almost too soft, but I think it's partly because there is nothing up against one side of the cushion (I needed another arm), so it has a tendency to slide off. I have 2 cats and they report that there is nothing better than sleeping on the sectional with the wood stove going. It will be even better when the left arm is in place because then all of us can stretch out by the wood stove and I won't be fighting them for space anymore. The color I chose was Hondo Grape, which is a dusty maroon and I like it very much. So far, cleaning the fabric (I have a long-haired, white cat) has been very easy, I just vacuum or use a damp cloth. The biggest hazard really has been that once I get the boxes, it's hard to do anything else but spend whatever time it takes (an hour a section is a good estimate)to put it together.
I ordered my sectional about 2 years ago. Recently my dogs were playing on it and managed to break the arm. When I called to get a cost on the replacement board, the woman I spoke to was very nice. She told me it was covered under my 10 year warranty and will send the replacement. We have been very happy with our sectional. Other then my 2 large labs breaking it. It has held up against 3 plus children, several guests, and a few foster dogs. Very well made product. Couldn't be happier with it. As well as the service from home reserve, wonderful people to deal with. I wish more company's were ran this way. We will continue to buy our furniture from this company. I just ordered a new cover for my couch as well, looking forward to getting it and showing it off.
I just finished putting my sofa and ottoman together. I am so thrilled with how it looks and how comfy it is to sit on. My old sofa was getting so hard for me to sit on comfortable. I needed a new one and after much looking around, I'm so glad I chose Home Reserve. Delivery was exactly on time. Putting together was so well explained and easy. And the end result is just cozy as can be.
I live alone, in the second floor of my apartment. If I can get those boxes up the stairs and put it all together - any one can. Thank you so much!
I've had my hondo apple laney couch and honda grabe armless looseback chairs for almost 3 years. Yes they are bright colors and my mom was a skeptic at first. You try living in bland dorms and apartments and see what you come up with! One of the key reasons I chose home reserve was the color choices. I really wanted a colorful sofa set and couldn't find any reasonably priced until I stumbled on home reserve. The fabric swatches were amazing!
My furniture has survived apartment living, storage (in my dad's so not weather tight shed), moving into my first house, adoption of two puppies, and the 2 year old I babysit. Thanks to the puppy stage, I've had to replace some pieces of the couch and am about to completely recover them. The ease with which home reserve worked with me to replace the damaged pieces was wonderful. I don't worry about the two year old's spills or the doggie messes when I get home for a weekend away, everything is washable or replaceable... I can't imagine any better deals at any of the local furniture stores, especially when because my dog shows her separation anxiety by shredding pillows! or couch cushions!! (almost broke her of the habit!)
Give Home Reserve a chance, you will definitely fall in love with their furniture! Believe me, the investment is so worth it!!!
Recently my husband and I bought a sectional, some throw pillows and a chair and a half from home reserve. First off I want to say that the customer service I received was AMAZING! I really wanted a specific fabric that had JUST been retired so they searched their warehouse for it and managed to find enough to put together all of the throw pillows I had requested. Also, when we placed our very FIRST order for just the chair and a half we were in the process of PCSing and had no furniture at all. I called up customer service to find out when our chair would ship and they rushed it out of the warehouse for us and it was with us in 3 days. Amazing right? Now THAT is the way customer service should be! We had no problems at all putting all of our pieces together and they look fantastic!
BUT the one big thing I have to say right now is I am potty training. We had an accident on the couch today and ya know what...I stripped the cover of the cushion right off and tossed it in the wash (we have the Altima Hickory FYI) and pulled it out, popped it right back on and TADA! My couch is clean. CLEAN! Do you know how nasty my last couch was? It was impossible to clean and therefor not child friendly in the least. This couch is my new best friend. Not only does it look stylish but I can clean all the grub my children place on it and I don't have to sit there and wonder what kind of new mega germs are breeding in my couch.
Thankyou Home Reserve! I am now a believer! (oh and the 2 guys who helped us put the sectional together are ordering from you aswell. We have decided that these are the only couches military members should own!)
I just finished putting together my first Home Reserve couch and couldn't be happier! I live in a small apartment in New York City and this was the perfect answer. We picked out and designed a sectional that allows for maximum seating in our small living room. One thing I was really impressed with was the customer service, I was concerned about delivery timing and called sandy about 6 days after ordering. She told me she would do her best to expedite the order and I got an email the next day saying it had shipped! The couch took about 3 hours to put together and I am so impressed by the quality and look of the material. I will recommend this to
Friends and only wish I had more pieces to test out!!
