World Market Kendall Sofa Review

blushkendallWe finally tracked down our beloved blush sofa as pined over here and here. We ended up with the blush Kendall sofa from World Market. Because this color in this style is brand spanking new, we decided you needed a “thorough” review.

This sofa retails for $699.99 and is currently on sale for $549.99 with $59.95 shipping  which can be waived with a free ship code.

The Good

The listing says it’s “large and comfortable”. Check! In spite of how surprisingly regal they are able to make a $700 sofa, this thing is so comfortable. The cushions are incredibly comfortable and yet seem to be holding up against the weight of full grown people. My husband is linebacker sized and he fits on this sofa without dwarfing it. When we decided to buy it, I had this guy who serendipitously passed sit in the chair for me. He was about 6’4″ 300 lbs and looked comfortable in the chair without being way too large for it. I took that as a sign. It’s also got pretty sturdy cushions. My sister in law took a nap on it the other day and the cushions popped right back.

“Radiant velvet like fabric with a subtle sheen in a soft blush pink hue”. Double check! Its actually less of a blush and more of a rich mauve color. This is what we were hoping it looked like. Since the Kendall in this color never hit the store, we weren’t sure what it would look like. We were pleasantly surprised by the richness of the hue. Because our style airs on the side of whimsical Kate Spade, we needed the sofa to feel a little mature more mature and the color helps it do that. The velvet like fabric is also really nice. It’s so beautiful that had I not read this descriptor, I wouldn’t have known it wasn’t actual velvet. It’s also pretty stain resistant so far. Disclaimer: we are a family with no children and we own black dogs that don’t get on the furniture and have a history of owning white couches that we have been able to keep clean with no problem. Meaning? Don’t use us as a barometer for stain resistance. However our dogs brush against the sides of the chair and I have literally been able to hit wipe any dog hair off with my bare hand.

In addition to being resilient, it’s also resilient. Before buying this sofa, we watched the floor model of the Kendall in turquoise in our local store for two years. Two years later, still in beautiful condition so much so that someone bought it right off the floor one day. The chair of it is still in the store and it’s in perfect condition so I have all the faith in the world that this chair will hold up. The wear and tear it can take makes it worth even more than the $700 for me.

The Bad

I have none except that I wish the back were taller. This is totally a personal issue  our dog crates (that white sofa table) are behind our sofa and I’d like the sofa to completely cover them. But alas, got to take what I can get. We may sub out the legs for slightly taller ones to give it more lift.

Overall, I’m 3000% satisfied with this sofa (and anything I’ve recently purchased from World Market). If this sofa does anything to betray me, I will absolutely update you. What do you think? Did we make the right choice with this sofa? Are you considering one for yourself by chance?
