“Fantastic couch if you can find it second hand”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by Martin307 (1 review written)

Let me just say up front, I got my couch second hand at a local thrift store, so my review is from it already being second hand and having no idea where it has been and who the previous owner is. Oh yea...I'm from the other side of the pond. Someone must have ordered this and had it shipped over to the U.S. I got my couch dirt cheap because it had some light cat scratches on it. This is the softest leather I have ever felt in a couch. The frame is extremely solid andthe couch is heavy and buit… Read Full Review

“brilliant”

Written on: 25/05/2014 by SADIEANDROXIE (1 review written)

we purchased our calia suite 12 years ago and I have not seen anything better or more comfy and the leather has improved with age. It just looks as new as the day it was delivered. It is still modern after all this time. I would recommend this, although at the time it seemed a lot of money it has been so worth what we paid… Read Full Review

“Leathersofaworld nightmare DONT BUY!!!”

Written on: 05/04/2012

If you look at most of the reveiws of leathersofaworld you can see that they have written them. I purchased a sofa set from leathersofaworld last year, they make it easy to buy as you can buy on-line and the price is cheap. Unfortunately you get what you pay for, the sofas are very low standard and even though they claim they are "BONDED leather" I could not tell the diferance between BONDED leather and cheap PVC. As it was only for the spare room and they look quite modern I kept it. BIG… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2010 by christopherbell (1 review written)

We bought in 2000 a 2 & 3 seat couch, they have been moved to three different homes and have had two dogs on them the last four years. I love these I was thinking about replacing them but it seems that they might of changed how they make their products as I see lots of bad reviews. I guess you csn say it took me 10 years to write this review but I will say If I can find this brand with the quality I found before I'd buy them right away I think we pais around 3k each… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/01/2010

I bought a 2 seater and 2.5 seater brown leather lounge 4 years aga and am very happy with the quality, comfort and look of them. They have been well used and show no deterioration. I look after them with leather cleaning and conditioning produscts and expect to get more years good use from them. Perhaps, like cars, you can get a 'lemon', but my experience has been very positive… Read Full Review

“We purchased a calia leather couch (2 seater and 3...”

Written on: 03/10/2009

We purchased a calia leather couch (2 seater and 3 seater) "catherine" style in 2001, and keep thinking when should clean or condition it, but have done nothing to it - apart from cleaning up what the kids have split on it. We still think it looks good and went shopping today for another couch but were disappointed that Nick Scali now import everything from China. Disappointing to hear the other reviews but our experience was very different.

Tip - put your hand down the back of the seat to… Read Full Review

“Around 4 years ago, we purchased a Calia Italia sofa...”

Written on: 25/04/2009 by nmilton (1 review written)

Around 4 years ago, we purchased a Calia Italia sofa and 2 arm chairs with black, natural tanned, non-coated leather which we believed would retain it's natural appearance, touch and texture better than coated leathers. We follow the same strategy with our shoes, selecting natural leathers to ensure perfect breathability, and concluded the same philosophy was best with the furniture.

It took a long time to find a manufacturer who offered quality natural uncoated leather rather than the… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/02/2009

We purchased our sofa 2 x 2 seater and 1 x single seater from Calia Italia and they were delivered 2005. After the 12 month warranty expired we noticed that the foams were beginning to collapse and it was difficult to raise ones self from the seats. The foams were repaired under insurance but too late the whole business is now with the financial ombudsman but the out come is possibly not good for us. Today we went to the furniture outlet from whom we purchased the suite only to be told that… Read Full Review

“We have purchased a calia-italia sofa through designer...”

Written on: 21/03/2007 by RRMU (1 review written)

We have purchased a calia-italia sofa through designer sofa at the ideal home exhibition. The very same day after it was delivered we called designer sofa to inform that the recliner was faulty and it had damaged our floor. We are very unhappy with the very poor service as we are still awaiting response from them. I would not recommend anyone to buy a sofa from designer sofa and I would definitely not recommend a calia-italia sofa as their quality control service is very poor as otherwise we… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/08/2010

I found this review very helpful because...I have made a very similar experience. Designer Sofas are an unprofessional company who do not follow any due diligence when advising customers, nor do they provide any customer service when problems arise. I have also been ignored when raising issues and they are even unable to show empathy or apologise. Save yourself the hassle. Should you want to buy from them anyway, get everything - and I mean EVERYTHING - written down in detail and signed by two of their sales people. Read their purchase agreement carefully before you sign, as you will probably find you won't want to do business with them anymore.

“After only 2 years, the leather on the Eleanor sofa...”

Written on: 21/11/2006 by shelleymarsh (1 review written)

After only 2 years, the leather on the Eleanor sofa and chair that I bought from Calia Italia cracked and peeled, although we carefully followed the manufacturer's care instructions. The leather turned out to be bicast, not genuine leather. The manufacturer insisted that we used a harsh solvent to make it crack. We're left with expensive furniture, of poor and disappointing quality that the manufacturer will not recognize… Read Full Review
