Looks: This couch is beautiful. After an initial run down with some Otter Wax the leather starts to glow. Imperfections in the leather and minor scuffs add to the charm of this sofa (which is good news because this fragile analine leather practically scuffs if you think about sitting on it). 10/10 Quality: the build of this couch seems well done. It has the standard webbing/synthetic backs and undersides of the cushions. It’s useful for keeping the cushions in place, but it also limits the amount of cushion rotation options. The frame feels well built although it does creak ever so slightly occasionally. The leather quality is high, although due to the nature of this type it is a little vulnerable to things like cat claws or other sharp objects. Liquids are another thing to be ultra cautious of with this couch. I recommend buying a leather care kit (like the one Otter Wax makes) to have on hand BEFORE you need it and taking preventative steps like applying a layer of leather salve or oil regularly. 9/10 Comfort: the dimensions of this sofa are almost identical to the sofa it replaced, so it feels very familiar and comfortable to me. I do wish the seat and back cushions were just slightly firmer or stuffed more. It’s still comfortable but I feel the cushion we sit on more already being noticeably lower than the others, and I rotate them regularly. 8/10 Overall, I highly recommend this sofa to anybody looking to buy a quality piece of furniture, especially if they are ready to take on the task/responsibility of being an analine leather couch owner.

I love the feel of the cushions and the texture of the weave. It is a very cool white, so it almost appears gray. I love the wood accent on the bottom and the feet are well made for sturdiness. I wish the cushion seats went on first and the seat backs afterward. They often appear not pushed fully in because of this . I love the size. It’s comfortable for 3 but it isn’t bulky at all. I’ve had it about 2 weeks and today was my first issue. One seat suddenly feels lumpy. I reached inside the cushion to adjust it but because it’s foam, there isn’t really anything to flatten/straighten. Not sure how this will wear over time. I hope it resolves.

Sven Velvet Sofa
I’ve been drooling over the Sven for months now and she’s finally here (took 6 weeks to arrive) Beautiful craftsmanship, velvet is so lush and soft. The seat is a little firmer than I expected, hoping it will break in with use. I will not be exposing it to direct sunlight and I’m considering getting uv protectant film for all windows. Hopefully we will not experience discolouration like other reviewers! The delivery men brought the box inside, you only need to assemble the legs, but it still takes two to lift the couch. Very happy with my purchase, I can’t stop staring at how beautiful she is!
