Thanks for answering my question...I have another one if you do not mind. Do you know if the sofa is comfortable? I am in the process of purchasing RH sofa and am debating on the polyfiber or the down.

Noel, I know that your question was not for me but I wanted to let you know that I researched sofas for quite some time and sat on what felt like hundreds of them! I prefer restoration hardware's down sofas, much more comfortable in my opinion but I do believe that they require a little bit more upkeep. My neighbor has one of their down sofas and she loves it so far. I considered going with one of their sofas but ended up going with a Precedent sofa, their Parisian Loft collection in down. It was by far the most comfortable couch my husband and I sat on during our search. The look was super close to the restoration hardware and I actually took a restoration hardware fabric swatch to my furniture store and matched it with a Precedent fabric. Got practically the same fabric on my new couch :-)

Hi! Where's the sectional from and what's the style name? Thx

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In this living room, freestanding bookcases are painted just a shade darker than the walls. This helps the bookcases feel like an intentional part of the room’s design — more like built-ins.
