Barletta Medium Sofa
Worst purchase ever
Purchased Barletta large sofa, love chair & chair July 2012, within the first few weeks seat cushions began to sag, making the sofa look older than the 10year old one it replaced. Complained to M&S who sent out Fira technician, who requested the foam in all seat cushions to be replaced, this took 4 months. Now 6 months on we are back to square one as the replacement foam was the same as the original foam supplied. Wonder what M&S are going to do now? Would not recommend this suite to anyone, don't waste your money!!!!

Disappointed with quality
Bought these sofas in 2011 in "smoke" chenille fabric and really loved them at first. We thought they would last for years. I completely agree with other reviews about the cushions constantly needing plumping as they look horrible otherwise, but in addition to that the piping has started to come away on the edge of one of the sofas. I have never seen this happen on my cheap sofas of my student days! On the other sofa the zipper has broken on one of the cushion seats. It just broke as I was replacing the cover after having it cleaned. Writing to M&S to see if they will do anything about it. Very disappointed. Don't waste your money. However I must add that friends of ours own 2 M&S sofas of a different design from 6 years ago and they're still going strong. These are obviously not as well made.

Bought this sofa in a sale, in Harrez Texture Natural, but disappointed. Not comfortable. After sitting for ten minutes my lower back feels uncomfortable: not enough support. I have to push a small narrow cushion between the seat and back cushions for support. Also the wrapping under the material for the right hand arm rest has slipped down and it's now an odd shape. The deep creases in the seat cushions caused by sitting on them, don't disappear after plumping them up. Sad to say this sofa is not as good or as comfortable as the one it replaced. Wish I hadn't bought it.

Looks lovely, but not the best quality!
Had this almost a year - it is a very lovely looking sofa, in Union Blue it is very stylish, and we find it pretty comfortable, but the springs have already gone!!! Have called M&S & we are now waiting for technicians to come & fix it so quite disappointed in the poor quality as not cheap!!
