Rated 1 out of 5 by PTCFamily Sofa Does Not Want to be Sat On
We've had this sofa 18 months. It is horribly uncomfortable. It pretty much forcibly ejects you. You have to fight the back cushion to lean back. I kept telling myself that maybe it just needed to be broken in but age has not helped. I haven't had any issues with the slip covers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jsmith so wanted to love this but HORRIBLY uncomfortable
we have had this sectional for 2.5 years and it is in a room where it is rarely used. maybe 20 minutes a day someone sits on it. it has worn so poorly. it was never comfortable to begin with but now, there are several large dents where whatever structure is inside has caved in. its like sitting at a 45 degree angle. and forget what it says about not lumping. the down fill is not at all plush and comfy. it is hard and lumpy.
some advice on the sectional -- i will never buy one again. cant switch pillows because of different cushion shapes and the pieces constantly separate.
i should have known better than to buy something we had never sat on. lesson learned! this has been a total dud.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JrzMom slipcover problems
This sofa is has held up well in my den with a big dog, two kids, and lots of company. It's fairly comfortable too but I am not at all happy with the slipcover. I had to return the first one because it shrunk after washing even though I followed the directions. The company did take the slipcover back with no problem and sent me a new one. A sales associate informed that even though the care instructions state otherwise, I should put the slipcover back on the couch when it's damp. If I knew I'd have to do that, I would not have ordered this couch. Although the replacement slipcover is easier to get on and off, I still need help getting it back on after washing. Additionally, the color is very different than it appeared online so if you are thinking of ordering this product, order a swatch first, bu honestly, I just can't get past having to put a damp slipcover onto my couch!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Easystyle2 Not comfy at all.
This sofa looks great, but it is not that comfortable; I wish I took advantage of the return policy. I found the slipcovers to fit fine, perhaps a tad long but if the sofa had a leg in the middle, they might fit better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Starla Just okay.
I have had this sofa for a little over a year now. It is okay but definitely not great. The slipcovers are very difficult to put back on. The cushions shed feathers like crazy when I do take off the slipcovers to wash them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by She42 Well worth the price
I could not be more pleased with my sofa. I bought the slip cover in off white. It fits so well. It is not saggy or loose that you see in other slip covered furniutre. Looks great, fabric is very nice. I have bought so many things from Ballard and everything is great quality. Do not hesitate to buy this furniture.

Completely satisfied with our two new Davenport Sofa's - we couldn't be more pleased with the craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into the construction. The most comfortable sofa's we had in a very long time!

I've had 2 love seats for almost 2 yrs. As I have two large golden retrievers (on the furniture whenever they want), I bought two extra slipcovers in case they didn't wash as well as I hoped ... I'd have an extra set to use for special occasions. I've not had to open the extra sets as yet.The off-white twill washes beautifully (even dog slobber comes out). I do NOT put in the dryer, but hang to dry (takes a day). Easy to take on and off once you get the hang of it. A great purchase for my home!

by Easystyle2 Well-made and sized right
Basically, I like this sofa. i gave it a 4 because I think the cushions could be more comfortable. They seem quite firm. I thought they would be softer especially the back cushions. Size is exactly as described. I paried this with the Abigail rug and it looks great! Love it!

I love it! I love that I can actually wash the cover and have no fear that the dogs will ruin it. It's very comfortable and I'm pleased with it overall. Best was your service. It was - Bar None - the best Customer Service experience I have had in years. Thank you for being so proactive in ensuring your customers satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nonnachela The Davenport slipcover sofa
Love it, love it, love it. The sofa is sturdy and comfortable. The slipcover is very well made, sewn beautifully with unseen touches that indicate Ballard's dedication to deliver a quality product at a good price. We plan to order the love seat, then the easy chair as our budget permits. I also like the fact that if I don't find exactly what I want in the slipcover fabric selection, I can send Ballard my own fabric.
From now on when I need an item for the house I will go first to Ballard.
Five stars for this product.

It took me months to find the right sofa for our living room, and when I saw this one with the boxpleat slipcover I fell in love with it. I was a little concerned about ordering a sofa without seeing it in person first, but I am so happy I took a chance. We LOVE this sofa!!! Seems very well made and priced right. We got the spa linen boxpleat slipcover - ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! Everyone that sees it says they love it. I think the boxpleat cover gives the sofa a realy unique and beautiful look that you don't find in any of the furniture stores, and I know, I've been looking for a long time for the perfect sofa. Order it! You won't be sorry!
