    Promising review: "This sofa is beautiful! It's in my office near the entryway and it is a showstopper. The background is not solid and has dark brush strokes, as in a painting. The smaller-sized sofa almost didn't fit through my typical-sized doorway. I ordered this in February and received it in May but it was well worth the wait." —JazzyDaisy

    Promising review: "This is durable and made to last and I am thoroughly pleased with how the furniture looks. If you’re just lounging and plan to be reclined then this sofa will suit you well. Albany Park has given me the best customer service I’ve experienced when purchasing furniture; I was sent the wrong set of screws for the ottoman and the turnaround time was quick. The velvet is easy to clean; especially after my dog sneakingly jumps on the sofa." —Walt

She is a 40-pound mixed breed and fits perfectly. The quality is very nice and I’m sure it’ll hold up for a long time to come." —Stacey
