Q: After way too many sofa talks with my boyfriend, we finally compromised and decided on the Dunham Sectional from West Elm (specifically the Box Cushion). I adore the sofa in the store. I think it's a great looking line. But the sectional is only available online. There are zero reviews available (anywhere!!!). I was finally ready to make the purchase when I noticed that the "quick ship" option is no longer available, which means you now have to special order it and wait 8-10 weeks — which is ok, except for the fact that you cannot return special order pieces. Does anyone out there have this piece, a similar piece or a sofa from West Elm that they can vouch for?
I am not a sectional person (just from a looks standpoint), but we are very into curling up and watching movies on our projector, so I am compromising, and this sectional is attractive and in our budget(ish). Any feedback would be much appreciated. This is our first grownup sofa ;) And yes, of course I've looked at Room and Board — the Hayes and the Vela, while both gorgeous, are expensive and too big for my space. Thank you!
