Find out why we’re loving our new Sven Sofa Pacific Blue from Article!
Is Article Furniture Good Quality?
Finding quality furniture can be tough if you don’t know where to look. I can’t even tell you how many pieces we’ve thrown away each time we moved because they’d fallen apart.
As we’re getting older, we are looking for furniture that’ll last decades. We want it to last long enough that it can be passed down to our children. With that in mind, we decided to check out Article.
After reading countless reviews, I knew there was something special about the Article Sven sofa. Seriously, the reviews are RAVING about how beautiful and sturdy their mid-century modern furniture is. The best part is that it is only $1,299-way cheaper than other comparable sofas.
After receiving my Pacific Blue Sven, I could tell right off the bat that Article furniture quality was up there with the best. The next big question was if it’d withstand a hyper German Shepherd and a claw happy kitty.
I did have my concerns about the velvet material, especially since everyone recommends the tan leather sofa by Article if you have pets. As gorgeous as their leather sofa is, I wanted the bold blue and velvet texture.
After about a month of use, I can safely say that this couch is dog and cat-friendly. While fur does stick to it, it vacuums up within a reasonable amount of time. The velvet is of such high quality that my cat doesn’t even bother trying to scratch it.
The only heads up necessary is that drool will show up, but it wipes right off. So nothing too involved is required for maintaining the velvet.
Our Experience Over the Past Month
After sitting and sleeping on this couch for a month, I have to say it’s the best couch I’ve ever owned. The Sven sofa is large enough to accommodate either four adults or two adults, a German Shepherd and a large cat.
It’s deep enough that you can sit criss-cross on it comfortably and wide enough to sleep without bending your legs. My husband is about 6 ft 1 and he can lay down on this couch with some room to spare.
My husband did spill on the couch a few times (oops!), but it wiped right off. The instructions do say the couch is dry clean only, but I’ll have to update you guys when I try it.
As for the cushions, they maintain their shape so well! Even with my cat constantly trying to flatten the back cushions by sleeping on them, they puff right back up.
Styles & Shipping
In case you were wondering, there are plenty of options for this couch! There’s a version with a sectional and TONS of colors/materials to choose from. Whether you love leather, velvet or fabric, you’re going to adore whichever you choose.
As of February 2019, Article offers free ground shipping on orders over $999. This means you get free shipping if you order the Sven sofa.
If you opt for one of their pieces under $999, Article has a flat shipping fee of only $49 (or $19 for small shipments). For those of you who don’t like setting up furniture, there are upgrades for in-room delivery and assembly.
One of the best parts about shopping with Article is their 30-day satisfaction guarantee. You can try their furniture for thirty days and if you are not completely happy, you can send it back.
Article will pick up the furniture and provide a refund, minus the delivery and pickup charges. In most cases, the charges are about $49.
Owning this gorgeous statement piece has been such a treat for the past month or so. I can tell we’ll be taking the Article Sven sofa wherever we go for a very long time.
One Year Update on the Sven Sofa Pacific Blue
Now that we’ve owned this beautiful sofa for around a year, it’s time to let you in on the things we have noticed and what we’d have done differently! As you know, we went for the velvet for the bold color and texture. While it still isn’t too much work to vacuum fur off this couch, if I could go back I’d have picked the Sven Charme Tan Sectional Sofa or one of their other leather couches.
As far as the overall couch quality, it’s still amazing. Even with my crazy dog jumping on and off the couch every day, it feels the same as when we first got it. The seat cushion, as well as the back cushions, remain fluffy and attractive. I’m really happy with this couch and will continue to purchase my furniture from Article.
If you have any questions that weren’t answered in the post, I encourage you to reach out to me.
