Abbey Large Sofa
Don't buy this sofa
Don't buy this sofa - especially in Baker Chenille. We loved the shape of this sofa and ordered it along with a small one for the same room. However, the cushions, seat and back, have rippled and the fabric permanently stretched as soon as sat on. It looks a mess. Replacement covers were not stitched any better and were too big. The small sofa isn't so bad, but still not good. The quality of this sofa compared to the 2 Lanesborough sofas bought 9 years ago is poor. About to accept a refund and shop elsewhere.

We have had this sofa (and two matching armchairs) in the brown Italian leather for 11 years now and it still looks amazing. Bearing in mind we have two young kids who sometimes like to use it as a trampoline (when I'm not looking!) and a dog who sneaks up occasionally (also when I'm not looking!) I am over the moon with the quality of the Abbey. It is super comfortable and the sofa is big enough to really stretch out on. Family and friends love it so much that three of them have bought the same one! Well done M&S.

Don't buy if you want comfort
I've had this sofa & 2 recliners in leather for just over 12 months. They're not comfortable to sit on the leather may have given on the seat cushions but the cushion feels just as hard as the day they arrived, like sitting on the floor, the back cushions just seem to roll over. Shabby is all I can say.
I was prompted to write this review after visiting M&S and sitting on the showroom one which was much better than mine, comfortable and presentable.
I'm annoyed that I spent so much money and prefer to lie on the floor!
I won't mention the leather is peeling :(

I have now tried 3 times to write a review for this sofa and been rejected 3 times. I have adhered to the terms and conditions. All I want to simply say is do not buy these sofas, they are of poor quality and the material we chose is wearing after only 2 weeks.
Rather than just reject my review, please explain why it is inappropriate when I am just being honest.
