Pottery Barn - Overpriced sofa with a defect but not backed by the company

68 of 428 Pottery Barn reviews

Bought a $2200+ sofa in June, 2014.Got delivered in Aug, 2014.

After just one year of usage one of the two back cushion started to sag a lot. The company suggests to puff and flip regularly(not stated in their site), so I tried my best to save this cushion but, it just kept sagging even more. When I called the company in Feb 2016, they say it's been too long since purchase for them to do anything about it. They put the blame on "maybe someone just sits on that side of the sofa regularly" which is not true.

I've been switching the cushion from left/right, flipping front/back, up/down on weekly bases. I've had this sofa not even a full 2 yrs and the back cushion looks like it's been used for ages. Sales associates keep telling me to buy the replacement for the back cushion. I feel ripped off of my money.

NEVER AGAIN from pottery barn.

Why on earth should they replace a sofa after a full year? They have no way of knowing if you are doing the damage yourself. This complaint is ridiculous.

I agree with #1142754, just get a new insert.

That picture is awful. Thanks for the heads-up! I'll be extremely cautious dealing with them - if at all.
