"One of our core design principles is efficiency. We push for efficiency in every aspect of a product, from the use of materials, to machining and production, to packaging and transportation. With higher efficiency, we use fewer resources and make a smaller environmental footprint. Additionally, during the design process we consider the environmental impact of each decision we make and, whenever possible, choose the option that has a smaller impact on the environment.

Our Thoughts

Blu Dot does not include reviews on their website, and in general there doesn't seam to be a ton of "social proof." If you look at their products on Wayfair, there are some reviews on their items there but not many customer images or information from customers.

Around the Web

We love this couch! It’s very stylish and extremely comfortable too. The color is very beautiful and a deep grey but also a tiny tint of brownisholive in the right light which is exactly what I was looking for. When we received it, there was a small scratch in the velvet on the back of the couch but after contacting wayfair they compensated us very fairly for the scratch. Would recommend!

The cushions are firmer than I expected them to be. I still feels pretty comfortable. The only thing that almost bothered me was how hard it was to screw in the legs. I believe the engineer could make the measurements a bit more exact so that you would only need to drive the screws straight and not tilted. Besides that, everything feels fine. The package came in un-damaged and beside being 2 weeks late on the delivery, the team at Wayfair was able to accommodate my requests of upgrading the delivery service due to the inconvenience. overall, happy customer

I bought this sofa in red and the color is nothing like the pictures show. It is some faded shade of orange rust with a faded red tint, sort of a faded brick color, the shade of red I would term as "old-woman's red." I would have done better ordering the off-white beige color. As it is, I have to change all my rugs, which have real red in them and make the sofa look old and dull. In terms of quality it seems sturdy and is heavy. May need two people to handle. You only need to screw on legs, but since the instructions were buried in the wrapping I only found them after I screwed the legs wrong. The seating is not soft, but I like that. What I don't like is that you have to smooth the upholstery over every time you get up because the padding and the fabric do not bounce back. I have not yet opened the sofa into the bed position, but I hope it will work. Overall, the product seems OK, but definitely not worth the price in my opinion.
