    Really decent couch for the money, July 2, 2011

    This review is from: Handy Living CAC4-S1-AAA63 050 Living Room Convert-A-Couch Microfiber Sleeper Sofa With Pillow Top Arms, Sage With 2 Decorative Decorative Throw Pillows (Misc.)

    I am very pleased with this sofa– it came in a huge box that is the length of the sofa, and weighed about 100 pounds, so if ordered, I suggest having two people ready to carry it into your home. I live on the third floor, and without a very helpful neighbor, I would have had no chance to bring it in, as the UPS driver was unable to carry it with me.
    So, I wasn’t expecting a super high quality couch for under 500$, but I was pleasantly surprised that this one is solid and comfy when put together. I think a lot depends on how well you can put it together, because it does require assembly. It can be done by one or two persons, and my husband got it together in less than an hour, although he is very experienced with such things. Still, it is nice that the customer has the option to really put it together and make a solid couch. I suggest paying close attention to tightening all the bolts. There is no heavy work to do, just screwing in bolts with the included allen wrench, putting the box springs in, etc.
    It comes in several pieces, and one thing that I think other customers might be concerned about is that the cover gets stuffed with the coil springs, and then just velcro-ed to the bottom. Really, it looks nice and you wouldn’t know that it is just velcro-ed on, but I could see that being a bother to some people. Also, the arm cushions have a strip of velcro to hold them in position on the sides of the couch, and if you sit down vigorously, the velcro sometimes comes unfastened, which is a little annoying. I think it is necessary to have them like this so that it can fold down to a bed, but that is the least aesthetically appealing part of the whole thing. It folds nicely to a bed, and is comfy enough to sleep on. The microfiber cover is soft and nice, and looks contemporary and good.
    This might not be important to all customers, but I read on the company website that they are relatively environmnentally friendly–From their website:

    “Handy Living is building a new kind of sofa, one that can be delivered in a box to your doorstep, one that can sustain your family, and then help sustain the environment. All Handy Living sofas are designed with high quality components, but are also designed for responsible disposal after their useful life. No more sofas on the curb. Simply disassemble, separate the parts and recycle.”

    This is really great, because I have seen so many sofas being taken to the landfill to slowly break down. Also, I want to note that there is no chemical smell with this sofa, which others complained of in reviews for other sofas in this price range, but from different brands. That is important to me as well.
    All-in-all, I would recommend this sofa to almost anyone looking for a quality sofa at a really great price, or to those who don’t want to have to pay for expensive delivery. Delivery was free with amazon prime, which blew me away. I’ve never had such a large item delivered without a huge cost.
    One final note: It takes a bit for the cushions to “decompress”- what I mean is that when first out of the box, the cushions were compressed a lot, and have plumped up a lot after we put it together. The instructions (which were reasonably clear) said that they will fully decompress in 48-72 hours.
    The only people I wouldn’t recommend this for would be someone who couldn’t handle the construction, and couldn’t find someone to help. It is not especially difficult, but I am sure some people could struggle with it, especially to get the bolts tight enough. Still, I don’t think many people will be disappointed. Sorry for the long review, but there were no reviews when I was shopping for sofas, and I wanted to include as much as possible. Comment if you have questions, and I will try my best to answer. Also, I will update after 6 months or so to see how well it holds up.

    This review is from: Handy Living CAC4-S1-AAA63 050 Living Room Convert-A-Couch Microfiber Sleeper Sofa With Pillow Top Arms, Sage With 2 Decorative Decorative Throw Pillows (Misc.)

    I bought this “convert-a-couch” last week, and it came very quickly. Too quickly in fact – it arrived before I moved into my new apartment. But I suspect very few people would complain about that.

    The couch is extremely comfortable and looks nice. The sage color on amazon is very accurate to what I received, and the neutral color goes well with anything and everything. Construction was easier than I expected, and I did it alone. With two people, you can have the couch together in no time.

    As I’m waiting for my bed in my new apartment, I’ve been using the couch to sleep on, and it’s amazingly comfortable. I read a review saying there is a gap between the seat and cover. I cannot see or feel one on mine, and I was laying diagonally on the couch. I slept soundly and just hope my bed is as comfortable. I imagine that that reviewer made a mistake in construction. There are a few extra sockets for screws when you put the couch together, and if you don’t follow the instructions perfectly, you could possibly get a gap.

    Upon completing the couch, I noticed a small tear in the cover. (Aside note: in construction they give you a microfiber cover to put over the cushions. This is what you see in the picture above with all the squares on the seat and back rest). However, I called the supplier, Handy Living, at 10:23 am. At 10:28 am, I was off the phone and a new cover was being sent to me. They are obviously very helpful, and it makes me feel more secure in my purchase.

    For this price, it’s really hard to beat the quality. I would give it 4.5 starts, knocking it down a little for the tear and the fabric feels a little thin. This is the perfect couch for someone who needs a nice looking, comfortable, convertible couch that will last them around 6-8 years.

    This review is from: Handy Living CAC4-S1-AAA63 050 Living Room Convert-A-Couch Microfiber Sleeper Sofa With Pillow Top Arms, Sage With 2 Decorative Decorative Throw Pillows (Misc.)

    I ordered this couch delivered to a vacation home on Chincoteague Island–it was delivered to the front door in the morning on the day promised (the day after my order) and it was waiting for me when I arrived. Reasonable straightforward to assemble–one person can do it. As with many to-be-assembled furniture items, you have to take care to keep the correct elements on the correct side and in the correct orientation. Also, for those who are no longer supple and limber, you’ll go through the usual semi-contortionist movements to get some of the bolts in the right places–but, again, nothing unusual. The cushions are coil spring segments that look small when they’re by themselves. The get stuffed into large “pockets” in the cover–and once stuffed into their pockets, they fill out the cover pretty nicely and create a normally-sized couch. It’s firm and very comfortable. The padded armrests have velcro on the inside to stick to velcro on the arm structure–mine don’t stay down very well (which leaves the black strip of the velcro somewhat exposed–not terribly aesthetically pleasing), but I assume that’s because the couch is new and a bit stiff. I’d expect them to loosen up over time.

    The couch unfolds to make a bed. It also has two settings for seating–one with the normal straight-backed orientation, and one reclined.

    I’m very happy with this couch.
