Not the most comfortable

Pros: price is good for a 4 piece set including pillows
Cons: construction design
"I love the look of this furniture. However, looks are only so comforting. Sitting on the cushions they compress easier and easier over time. We've had it for about 2 months. The front of the cushions tend to compress more than the back making it feel like a slide. My wife and I both feel like we are sliding off unless our legs are tucked under us and we sit way back in the corners. The backs of the sofa and loveseat feel spring loaded and tend to push back. I don't feel like I would ever sink into the back.
All three pieces have removeable cushions. If you sit in the middle of a cushion, excluding the chair, the edges tend to lift.
The wood trim is definitly not very hard. I noticed a little dent in the wood shortly after we received it, possibly it occured in shipping I don't know. I felt the back side of the wood with my thumb nail and it easily pressed in.
The chair was huge. I love the chair. I think since we sit so far back in it we don't notice any sliding problem.
We were both concerned that the piping around the cushions would be the first to wear out and since it is a high point in a very wear prone area.
Keep in mind it is Bonded Leather. Research it online if you don't know what that is. I really don't know how the material will hold up over time. I'd prefer top grain or split leather."

Poor construction

Pros: looks very nice, wood detail is nice
Cons: foam cushions compress too much, bonded leather is a leather by-product.
Model Number: 382286
"I received my sofa set after 9 weeks. The main coach is huge and we had severe trouble getting it into the house and around corners. It looks nice, but is really not that comfortable. When you sit on the cushions which are composed of foam, they sink in almost flat in the front. If you are not planning on keeping this set for more than a few years its a bargain. But it won't last for years with the cheap materials used...bonded leather, which is a leather by-product (left over scaps of leather are ground together and bonded with synthetics to create a fake leather), and cheap foam. It's worth paying more to get a quality item that lasts. I recommend the Naples leather set from costco."

Beware!

"Beware! The picture may look great, however the sofas feel like "pleather", that is, like the simulated "leather" they actually are. I returned my set after two days. They look and feel cheap. Costco accepted returned furniture without question, as they are known to do. Be careful when furniture claims to be "leather" and the fine print reveals "bonded leather", which is NOT leather!"

So Big!

Pros: soft leather, comfortable, good delivery/set up service
Cons: not precicely true to photo
"Before ordering, I compared the measurements to my existing furniture. I knew this set would be big, but I had no idea how massive it would really feel. My husband is 6'3" and he almost looks small sitting in this chair (he calls it his throne). I'm 5'4" and my feet don't touch when I sit all the way back, though I suppose if it truly becomes a problem, I can remove the legs and the furniture would sit fine on the floor. The legs are quite substantial...my cats can easily lay under everything.
I received the samples in the mail (it took a LONG time), and they are true to the furniture. The leather has a slight mottling, which I couldn't really see online or in the sample, and the pillows are also bigger than they look in the picture. I thought the wood finish would be more along the lines of a honey/yellowish oak finish, but it's actually a bit darker than in the picture. Also, I wasn't wild about the "plain" rear legs pictured on the pieces, but all four legs on all four pieces are actually the carved legs pictured on the front of the pieces, which looks very nice."
