Rated 5 out of 5Â by Migdia My gorgeous living room,
My livingroom was always pretty. However, when I decided to buy this beautiful couch, it shot to spectacular! The Costwold couch looks like the house was built around it and belongs there in my house like Margaret Mead belongued to Burma. It is situated with its back to the entrance foyer at an angle. I have an oriental straight from under it to a brown wicker chair and ottoman. Two large potted fern in the corners of the room are also splendid and for a coffee table an antique metal trunk from the 17th century. There's the Italian Florentine mirror over the fireplace that adds to an elegant, but yet unassuming, casual look. I recommend this couch for the discenring buyer. This was my UCLA Grad school present from myself and it was the floor model with a hobbled leg that was quickly repaier. So I got it at a discount. So much for the better. Glad I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gigi2008 Perfect lounging sofa
This is our everyday TV/lounging sofa. It is extremely comfortable as it supports your entire back while sitting. It is very attractive too- and quite massive- three adults can sit on it with room to spare. It has a distressed look which makes everyday wear and tear blend in perfectly- it gets better with age! I love the scrolled arms.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Anthropolgist5 Doesn't Age Well
I ordered this couch for my mom a few years ago when I was an anthro employee. We had it in our store so I got to see how the leather started off shiny, slippery, and newer (definitely not hte vintage anthro look in the photo) and then became more scratched and worn in. I like how the leather aged in the store. It loosed up a bit, and the shine went away. However, my mom's couch aged much differently from the anthro couch. First, the anthro couch wasn't exposed to sun, and my mom's couch started to fade in the areas that got sunlight (not even prolonged direct sunlight). Second, the couch cushion did not age well. The middle of the couch has sagged quite a bit. My mom has had people out to add additional padding to the couch, but itâ€™s still sagging, and you can feel the frame underneath. I realized that the couch in our store didnâ€™t really get much real use â€“ just the occasional husband waiting while someone tried on clothes. All in all, itâ€™s not so bad because it wasnâ€™t as expensive for me. However, I wouldnâ€™t buy one full price. Itâ€™s now in my parentâ€™s basement instead of being the beautiful vintage, distressed couch they were hoping for.
