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!

Absolutely love this couch. So

Absolutely love this couch. So soft and fits in great in my living room. Does make me a little nervous however because my small dog likes to get on the furniture and her claws leave little scratch marks.

This sofa is exactly what

This sofa is exactly what I was hoping for. A few years ago I bought the Napa in the dark blue color and I loved it but my husband kept reminding me how uncomfortable it was and how much he hated it. We moved into a new house that could fit another sofa so I searched to find one for him. I was nervous to get one he thought would be comfortable. When we received it and sat on it he was like yup this is perfect. He now every day since we’ve had it says how comfortable it is and loved it. I’m so glad, no more complaining from him lol.

Exactly, as advertised. I've wanted

Exactly, as advertised. I've wanted this couch for years and finally chose Poly and Bark. I've owed bonded leather and faux leather couches before and you can give those 5 - 6 years life span tops. This is something I hope will last three times that if not more. I enjoy taking care of it. It's softer than I expected. Thank you.
