Davenport Sofa Slipcover - Special Order Fabrics is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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 from 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 2 out of 5 by from SOOO hard to replace the slipcover I bought this sofa and matching chair because I wanted a nice looking custom slipcovered sofa. Unfortunately, I dread washing it because it is such a difficult process putting the cover back on. Basically, my husband and I have to use all of our strength to pull it over the arms. As a result, the seams are tearing out. I don't understand why there can't be some stretch in the fabric. I've owned it now for 4 years and washed our dark blue twill covers three times and they look very worn, despite washing and drying on the gentle setting. As others have said, the back cushions do tend to push you forward as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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 from 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 1 out of 5 by from Poor Durability, Sags Run away. As others have mentioned the couch sags in the middle and the cushions push forward, pushing you out of the couch. This is not a high quality item. We are very sorry we chose to invest in this and would not buy it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst sofa ever owned Bought this sofa almost about a year ago and it has been the worst sofa ever owned! As other customers have stated that it pushes you forward. There is no way to get comfortable unless you are in the middle of the sofa so that your back can get in between the two cushions. Even my kids are pushed forward and they are 5 and 7. It's long enough but the back pillows are too thick and push anyone forward. Every guest says how terrible it is as well. Good thing it's in the basement so I don't have to sit on it every day. Even with a year's time it has not broken in to be comfortable. I would NOT recommend this to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
