Good Questions: Anyone Tested The Shelter Sofa?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

Has anyone ever tested CB2’s “Shelter” sofa? The dimensions are excellent for my small apartment so I’m real curious on how comfortable it actually is. I like sofas that are real low, high arm and back, and short depth.

It is similar to R&B’s “Porter” but this price is much better. So is it comfy? Is there a need for throw pillows? I would appreciate any insight.

Thanks in advance. Henry

Dear Henry,

CB2 has been pretty good on quality so far, but you definitely will get what you pay for.

If you look closely at the Shelter, it has no bottom or back cushions, and gains it’s sleek look from a solid bench design that we don’t think will be as comfortable. In fact, if you look at the two side by side, the Shelter looks like the Porter with the cushions missing. Definitely consider adding throw pillows.

Anyone else??
