Griffin Sofa with Aged Brass Nailheads is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Unique Piece of Furniture My husband and I had been eyeing this sofa for nearly 6 months and decided to move forward purchasing this for our formal living room. My initial thought was: Who buys a couch without sitting on it? Apparently we do, and we’re very pleased. We ordered the Griffin Sofa in the Flax fabric. It is the perfect “greige” neutral for us. The fabric is a bit rough, but it’s structured and durable, which is what we wanted. Our cushions look great, and were expertly filled. The brass nail heads add a nice touch and design statement to the piece. It’s definitely not something that we’d lounge on, like we would on our family room furniture. It’s not a “cozy” couch, it’s more of a conversational piece, something to sit and talk with friends on. We’ve received several compliments on the piece and it’s unique look. I’d definitely recommend this product, and would suggest taking advantage of Ballard’s fabric samples.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sofa I've had this elegant, sophisticated, retro-style sofa in my new living room for a week now and I LOVE it. It's very well-made and the nice touches of the curved arms and nailheads make it really special. I ended up supplying my own fabric that our designer helped us pick out and Ballard handled everything very well. The sofa arrived 2 months after I sent the fabric in. It was definitely worth waiting for. One thing to note that I didn't realize ahead of time is that the middle wheel does not touch the ground when we set it on our hardwood floors. Now that I look at the pictures I realize that the wheel doesn't touch the ground on the hardwood in the pictures, but it does on the carpet. At least I know it isn't a flaw in the sofa, but I'm not sure why they would design the sofa that way. Either way, it's something I don't even notice anymore. One little comment about the delivery process...the delivery company said they were not allowed to bring the sofa inside which was a bit of a pain. We've never had this happen with any other furniture delivery before. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This sofa is a great value and quite handsome. I ordered the sofa in the spicy velvet. Workmanship is beautiful and large and comfortable enough to get a nice night's rest, if you had company. Who needs a sofa bed? As long as that person is not too tall. The design makes an outstanding statement, very unique. Ok, some minor things, but only as suggestions. I wish the bottom cushions could have a little clip to keep them pulled in, they may slide forward a little and on the front of one cushion, the velvet seemed to be a slight bit lighter. Little comments, create better products and I never expected to love this piece of furniture so much. So, thanks Ballard

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I hoped! I was surprised by the quality of this sofa when it arrived. It looks even better in person. They really got the details in the sofa right, from the nailhead to the brass casters on the feet. The cushions hold their shape well, which is so important on a sofa with such tidy lines. No slouching here! Also, it is very comfortable! Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sofa -- great value We were reluctant to order a large piece of upholstered furniture online, but after finding nothing locally for even double the price, we decided to go for it. It came well packed and in perfect condition. Fit and finish are impeccable and we have had no regrets! Consistently impressed with the quality of Ballard's merchandise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Sofa I had my eye on the griffin for over year when I had the opportunity to purchase it. I love the sofa and it's a good size for my smaller apartment. Even though this sofa is very comfortable I would recommend a larger sofa if you do a lot of entertaining and need additional seating. Also, I was very impressed with Ballards customer service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lumpy and beware of the legs but a great couch First of all, I want to say, I love the style of the sofa, the depth and the length. The color was lighter than the swatch and the fabric is scratchy. For the most part, I am extremely happy with the sofa. What I am disappointed with are the cushions. They are lumpy. I need to remove the padding inside and put it in an inner cover that fits and then baste it shut to have smooth cushions. Currently, the padding is in a cover that is too big and it is causing the lumps. Pretty shoddy workmanship on the part of the manufacturer. On the legs, there is a brass covering that has a very sharp lip. The first time I sat down barefoot, my heel hit the rim at just the right angle and I now have a huge gash. So, one needs to be aware of the potential danger of the legs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size and style. Having never purchased a big item from an online catalog I was nervous but couldn't resist this piece. Ballard sent many swatches and I settled on a chocolate twill. So happy with the end result. The Griffin is a perfect size and style for my small front sitting room. The cushions are thick and comfortable (a concern ordering online). I am beyond pleased with this purchase from my ordering experience to delivery. Thank you Ballard Designs for a wonderful experience and quality sofa.
