Just have to weigh in here and say this is my single most prized possession. I have lots of friends who are in love with the Sven — and I'm sure it's also great — but I'm SO happy I went with the Timber. The leather is so so soft and it's definitely one of those couches you just sink into. It's also really long. I'm 5'6" (and a half!) and can easily sprawl out with inches to spare at my head and feet.
If you're a pet owner, listen up! I was fearful to make such an investment when I had literally just adopted two kittens (one of the little devils is pictured above) but it couldn't be a better pick. Our first week with the couch, they seriously scratched up one of the cushions and I was *this* close to a breakdown. Flash forward a week, though, and after sitting on the couch like usual, all of the scratches were buffed out and no marks were left behind!! That is seriously the single best thing about this couch. Any marks, stains, or scratches eventually fade and add to the patina.
Promising review: "The sofa is absolutely amazing, and so comfortable we are looking forward to buying more items from this place to finish setting up our new home! My husband is a little over 6 feet and can lay across it and I can lay with him and not be falling off the edge." —Brandy F.
