Article Sofas Price, Durability, Delivery, Pros and Cons

Article launched in 2013 with a mission of making stylish furniture that is durable and competitively priced. Article uses no retailers or resellers, and works closely with their manufacturer to allow for a strong focus on quality assurance and attention to detail.

In addition, Article’s goal is to get your orders to you quickly and has narrowed the time from order to delivery down to two weeks. However, often times, customers receive their orders sooner than that. To date, they’ve delivered furniture to more than a quarter of a million homes and businesses in North America.

Article is staffed by engineers, journalists, painters, weight lifters, slack-liners, mountain bikers, chefs, reiki masters, and more. Their diversity is second only to their desire to make the furniture buying process easy and delightful. Article’s culture is rooted in five core values: be good, be direct, be better, be adventurous, be genuine.

Real Article Customer Reviews

We enjoyed reviewing Article and think this brand is a great choice for shoppers who are:

  • Those looking for quality crafted furniture and in-home delivery service so you don’t have to worry about unpackaging or setup.
  • Those who don’t mind paying for shipping and are comfortable with the 30 day return window.
  • Those who don’t plan to put heavy wear on the sofa as it only comes with a limited one year warranty.
  • Those who don’t mind shopping online as Article does not have showrooms to visit.

Positive Experiences:

“Very high quality, as I have come to expect from Article furniture. It is firm, but I expected that and like that. The fabric is durable but comfortable. I love the blue color.”

“Very nice, firm enough to be good for you, soft enough to be relaxing. A fair deal for the buyer with good price, good quality, good design.”

Negative Experiences:

“The couch was delivered quickly by very friendly moving guys. Set up was easy and it’s incredibly comfortable. The images online make the couch seem a bit more green than it actually is – this is a truly deep blue couch. I’ve decided to keep it because overall it still looks and feels great, but wish the photos were a bit more true to color online.”

“The color, design, and size of this couch is exactly what I wanted. The only downside is in reading a ton of reviews I thought the couch would be a little more cushiony than it is. I think this design and the newness lends towards stiffer cushions, but it’s fairly firm. I am hoping it breaks in a bit. I mostly keep a cover over it because of my dogs, but not on the side arm cushions. I just washed them for the first time and they look great. Very pleased with the purchase.”
