Wow, Ballard exceeded my expectations!! This was delivered 7 calendar days after I ordered it (not business days)! It was packaged very well, no damage at all. What an adorable settee. It's perfect and I would absolutely recommend this product and Ballard.

It's been a year since I bought this settee and I still love it. It gives my house a classy, dated look which ties in nicely with my theme. It's a statement piece and I love it and recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lalove Love, love this!
Although it is not a heavy piece (not what I wanted anyway), I simply love this sofa. It is the perfect fit/size/color for my small living room area. Delivery was fast and great. Item arrived in perfect condition.
If Ballard Designs ever puts the matching chair on sale as they did the sofa, I will get this also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyMimi Almost perfect
This settee was exactly what we were looking for. We have a parlor sized living room and the size was perfect. The color and fabric were also what we needed. I would have given it 5 stars but the comfort is not excellent, acceptable but not great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatV Good buy
Actually have not even removed the packing yet. We purchased this piece and the chairs for the purpose of reupholstering. Waiting on the upholsterer to pick up. The size and look in the picture was exactly what we wanted and will be less expensive than doing a true custom piece.
The space has just been redone with a hardwood floor and knobby silk wallpaper. The settee and chairs are being upholstered in similar black fabrics and are being placed on a black/gray area rug in front of a black granite fireplace; this sitting area has an ocean view. Cannot wait to see it all come together. Would post an image if the space was finished.

I love, love, love this piece. It is simple, yet stylish and and very well constructed. I have no regrets. Ballard has consistently provided great service and exceptional products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TXmom2 Pretty to look at, not very comfortable
The form and structure of this piece are wonderful, but the fabric is scratchy and uncomfortable. It is not worth the money. I was also disappointed with the fullness of the cushion. If you want something just to look at, this may work for you. I have never been so disappointed with a Ballard product before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by breathtester Great product, great price, great service
We love this new Settee. It's comfortable, good looking and seems well made. Because of its smaller size there are so many places it can go. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Azita Cute and Comfy!!!
I love this settee. It's modern and classic all at once. I sit on it, and even occasionally take a fetal position kind of nap on it and it is comfortable either way. The finish on the wood is very nicely done, and works with both darker and lighter wood in my living room. Very happy with this purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ArtistAtHome Lovely Settee
I love this settee. I think it is very pretty and comfortable enough since I use it to fill a nook. I am only giving it four stars instead of five because the wood frame came nicked in one area. This area is camoflaged by the wood stain and isn't noticable so it really isn't a big issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveanythingFrench Love this settee!
I honestly don't think I could love this settee more. I looked at it for at least a year and hesitated to order because it's difficult to order a sofa on the internet. Needless to say, I am happy I ordered it and also got 20 percent off when Ballard was offering a special sale. Beautiful, well made and so very French. I am thrilled with it.

Due to color and size it's perfect. I won't ever sit on it, however. Really, really uncomfortable. Construction is fine for the price point, beautifully upholstered. Sadly, it appears to be v. comfortable and when you sit, it's like a board and it makes a "plastic bag" sound - really not of great quality!

The Sofia Settee is exactly what I was looking for ... I placed it in my formal sitting room along with 2 of the matching chairs. These pieces create a informal yet fancy feel ... inviting yet respectful. I love the whimsical look and comfy feel of this furniture! I am just thrilled with the look!

Rated 4 out of 5 by happybeachgirl Just as I had hoped, with one exception
I ordered 2 Sophia settees in the flaxen/limed finish combo. I placed my order in mid-January 2013 knowing they were back ordered and would not ship til early April.
Ballard delivered! The estimated timeline was spot on and they did not charge me until the items shipped.
I love this product and would have given it 5 stars except that one of the cushions arrived with an oil stain on it. I tried to live with it for a few weeks but decided on principle that I really wanted a new cushion.
Ballard customer service was great. With no questions asked they are supposed to ship another cushion. The item is in stock, so hopefully I WILL receive it in a timely fashion.
I will update my review when I receive the cushion. If all is well, I will be happy to give it 5 stars. Stay tuned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeaceLovePurses Beautiful quality, nice detailing.
I was a little unsure about ordering this settee without seeing or feeling the quality/texture. Prior to ordering, I requested fabric and wood samples so I had an idea about color. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was wrapped securely in a huge box and in perfect condition! It is a nice addition to my home office & looks great with the Olivia side table, which is the perfect height for the settee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LgPT Charming and elegant settee
The product is exactly as described. It comes in a big box so it may be best to get the delivery service where they bring it into your home and remove the debris, especially if you live on an upper floor like me. It is sturdy and the distressed finish on the wood is done very well. The cushions are firm but comfortable and this piece adds a nice, vintage touch to my living room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mwbrooklyn very attractive, sturdy and comfortable
very attractive, sturdy and comfortable. lovely linen fabric.
be aware, there is a stylized decoration on the wood of the arms rather than classical, like a modern interpretation of the historical period it is imitating. but quite happy. delivery went smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BabsB simple yet elegant
I lucked into getting this settee and the Ballard outlet without a cushion. I had one made with foam and down and it matches perfectly. Maybe that was a good thing since many were disappointed in the original. I could not be happier with this piece. It is solid and comfortable and
has the prefect blend of style and simplicity that I was looking for. It makes my bedroom but it would look great
in almost any room. A very versatile and quality piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Francophile7 A dream come true
My husband and I are really enjoying the Sofia Sette, which we purchased six months ago. We are now "empty nesters" and are changing our decor to French Country. This piece set the whole tempo when we changed a bedroom into a sitting room. It is comfortable, romantic and all our friends love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sodapop Settee was exactly as pictured and described
I'm 3/3 on my Ballard purchases. This settee exceeded my expectations. The fabric is soft, yet durable as is the construction. It looks perfect positioned at the end of our bed. I highly recommend it for those looking for a small sofa with a French flair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by deco4fun Excellent - we love it!
We had looked at several places for a settee with these dimensions and the others were a bit flimsy so we were nervous ordering something without being able to actually sit on it and see it in person. However, it is EXACTLY what we wanted. It is VERY solid. The delivery went seamlessly, and it is beautiful. The only reason I did not give it five stars is that the seat cusion is not as soft as some we had sat on - a bit stiff, but that is it. Even knowing that I would order it again in a heartbeat! Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ballardblue Great Looking settee with one flaw.
The settee looks great, however, I have put on hold my plans to purchase two Sofia chairs until I have the Settee cushion re-stuffed. The material in the seat cushion is uncomfortable.
