Your sofa search is over! {This one is comfy, easily cleaned and a great price!}

Oh happy day!! I’ve been waiting for our latest delivery for nearly five months! When we moved into this house, I knew I wanted to do matching sofas set up across from each other in our family room. I LOVE symmetry. 
I wanted them to be plain, regular sofas with no chaise or sectional set up, and we already had this sofa from our living room at the old house: 
We got it for a GREAT deal, so I went back to the store where we found it (it’s a local store called Urban Underpriced) and found one more — pretty sure it was the last one they had.
I’ve loved this set up in our great room:

These sofas are SO comfy and large — I’d say close to the size of a twin mattress. We loved how deep they are! I also really liked the modern, simple design. 
But we quickly noticed the back cushions got smushed so easily. And I mean smashed — I had to fluff them up daily and rearrange the fluff inside all the time. The fabric didn’t hold up well with animals — it pilled up and didn’t clean up easily:

We didn’t notice this with our first one in our old living room because we didn’t use it nearly as much. Because they were so inexpensive and were comfy, we made due. I found some ways to make these worn out sofas look like new — and those tricks definitely helped over the years! 
I really should have known better. A few months before we decided to move (we had no plans to at the time), I had found THE ONE. The perfect sofa…finally!

I loved everything about it! It’s super comfy — the cushions were comfortable but still had structure. We loved how deep it was — tons of room for the tush. It looks great too. I liked the simple, modern arms and clean design. 
The best part was the fabric…it was super soft but easily cleaned! We even had sticky gold putty that got smashed into the fabric and came out. Other spills were easily cleaned up with just a cloth and water. It was perfect, I tell you!
The owners of that house are friends of ours and they bought it because it fit so well in the room. That sofa STILL looks great! 
Last year I started watching pricing to see when they were on sale (they are the lowest price I’ve ever seen them right now!) and we decided to order two of the regular Radley sofas without the chaise. 
It took almost five months…but they finally arrived! I’m never purchasing another brand again:

They have the look and feel of much more expensive couches for WAY less. 
The cushions are SO comfy and the fabric is soft:

The biggie for me — the back cushions hold their shape MUCH better:

Even though they’re stuffed with fill like our old ones, they hold up so much better. I think it’s because they are stuffed much firmer and the cushions are thinner. Our animals love to sit on the back cushions and these hold up way better than any other sofa we’ve had.
I am IN LOVE. I know the light color isn’t right for every household, but we’re used to it and these clean up so easily. I’ve already wiped chocolate milk drops off of them a couple times it comes off with just water:

The funny thing is, you’d never know we replaced our old couches if you look from far away! They are very similar from the side and back. Here’s the old sofa:

Those went to live with one of my sisters by the way. 🙂 
And the new ones!:

The regular Radley sofa is 39″ deep by 86″ wide. They are almost exactly the same dimensions as our old ones, just not quite as deep. 
I’m so happy — they were worth the wait! The BEST:

Macy’s sells the Radley in 13 different colors and a bunch of different configurations. Even a sleeper sofa version

Our old Radley sectional was in the color Cinder Grey. Our current sofas are in the color Oyster and that color was special order when we bought them, but now it says they’ll be in stock next month. Some colors are saying they’ll take up to 25 weeks though. We were first told it would be 6-8 weeks and it ended up being 4 1/2 months.

**Something to note — we paid for our sofas with our debit card. For some reason Macy’s kept taking the money in and out of our bank account…over and over and OVER for months. It was crazy frustrating, because when we would call they’d say they were just making sure the money was still available for payment. I don’t understand why they didn’t just process the payment when we ordered and be done with it. 

If you use a credit card that may not be an issue, but either way, if you order online and you’ll have a long wait I would call immediately and ask about that. We didn’t have that issue last time we bought this sofa with our debit card.
I’m so thrilled with them and I’ll be sure to update this over the years to share how they hold up! Do you have a sofa brand that you love? It’s a big purchase and I always find reviews to be so helpful.
