CB2 vs. Joybird



Our Verdict
2.5 / 5 STARS

Love them for their wide offering of both classics and trendy styles at a fairly reasonable price point. Expect long lead times and impersonal service but you’re buying the brand and the look you want.

No comfort options. Materials used varies depending on sofa collection.

Level of comfort depends on sofa collection. Most of our collections use our seat and back cushions contain 2.0-lb, high-density foam cores wrapped in a softer plush foam. The overall cushioning is both very comfortable and offers excellent support. The high-density cores help the cushions remain strong and durable over time, while the plush outer layer provides the comfort and composition found in high-end upholstered goods. Certain frames offer Trillium, a down alternative, or fiberfill on the back cushions, making them extra soft."


"Build our own Sectional" tool - visual way to build your configuration so it's super clear what you can make based on the individual pieces you opt for

They have a few modular sofa collections where you can mix and match components to create the configuration you need.
