Don't forget your Leather Care Kit
Crafted with a hat tip to vintage silhouettes, the Essex sofa brings stately style to your living room or den with rich full-grain pure-aniline (all cognac tan) or semi-aniline (all other colors) Italian tanned leather upholstery. The pure-aniline dyed Italian tanned leather upholstery emphasizes the natural beauty of each hide offering a unique look to each piece. With minimal processing, aniline hides proudly display the natural hallmarks of genuine leather such as fat wrinkles, growth marks, healed scars, insect bites and scratches. Similar to marble or a beautiful piece of timber, each leather will vary in color tone and pattern and will change, mark and stain, softening into its rich patina with age. A diamond tufted back drops to smooth and supremely comfortable cushions outfitted with duck feather down interiors for a seating experience that lives up to this sofa’s refined look. Tapered solid wood legs with mahogany finish add a tailored touch to this modern-day classic.

WOW! I can't believe it

I saw an almost identical sofa at Crate and Barrel which I fell in love with. I was ready to pay $3000+, but I thought first I'd do some research online. When I found this poly and bark essex Chesterfield style sofa, I was a little hesitant since the price was kind of low and there weren't any reviews. But for the price savings, I figured I'd take the gamble - AND I'M GLAD I DID. This sofa is fantastic! Really, I can't believe the quality of this thing for what I paid - it's better than the ones I saw at some brand name stores! The leather feels great and you can tell it's real leather (unlike some sofas where it's hard to tell if it's plether or the real thing), and the cushioning is perfect, just the right balance of soft and firm. For anyone on the fence about this item, go for it. You won't regret it. Happy hunting!

I work for a company that takes pride in its customer service and it takes a lot to impress me, but Poly & Bark really did. They definitely have a customer for life. I ordered the Essex sofa in blue and the Napa ottoman in dark brown and love both. There was a small issue with the delivery company and Poly & Bark went above and beyond to resolve it, even though I only mentioned it as a minor inconvenience and wasn’t expecting anything to be done about it. The leather on both pieces is gorgeous, as are the colors. Can’t say enough how much I love the dark blue. The Essex sofa is a little slimmer in person than I had pictured, with clean, straight lines. I’m not a fan of huge “fluffy” couches that always look crumpled, so this is perfect for me. It is not the kind of couch you can “sink” in but is still very comfortable and I love the design. My son spilled a bag of chips on the couch within an hour of getting it and the grease seemed to have stained the cushion, however the leather cleaner that can be purchased with it removed the whole thing. I would recommend buying it and having it handy, especially with kids. Overall incredibly pleased with this purchase!

Exceeded expectations

So the couch it’s self is beautiful ! I’m very happy i decided to go with the Essex . We originally had ordered the Napa couch in the cognac leather however I changed my mind the day before delivery and I’m so glad I did ! The poly and bark team was extremely helpful and understanding . They were able to cancel it and I received my refund days later and instead purchased the Essex couch ! As great as the poly and bark team was , the shipping company was not so great . We were given a time window of 10-2pm for delivery and we were told we would get a call 30 minutes before arrival . I instead received numerous at 9am saying they were here . We were able adjust to that time however I wish communication was better . The style of the Essex is timeless and the couch it’s self is sturdy and comfortable. It goes perfectly with the aesthetic I am trying to achieve . I would recommend this couch to anyone . I will say it’s leather so it scratches easily especially with pets . But that’s something I knew before purchasing.
