This chair looks stunning but looks can be very deceiving. I have received 2 replacements now for this chair and I give up. The first one wasn't finished on the underside of one of the arms and after waiting 6 weeks for a replacement, the second one wobbles terribly. I contacted Thrive and on both occasions I was told my replacement would be made in 2 weeks. That didn't happen. No follow up. I had to call them each time and when I actually got a live person on the phone, they claimed they were in the showroom and couldn't provide me any info until they talked to production. I finally got a notification that now a third chair is being sent to me after I've requested the one I currently have be picked up. And on top of everything, I was charged for 3rd replacement because someone entered it incorrectly. I just need this to end. Impressive website. Poor quality. Subpar customer service.
I wish I could review the Nixon sofa. I ordered this sofa on January 4 and I have yet to see it. I was told this sofa would ship in 3 weeks and it didn't ship until February 12 and then I was told it would be 1 week for shipping. Well, we are sitting at March 3 and I can't even get an eta. I gave up trying to call Thrive because I always get a generic voice mail or someone who consistently tells me their shipping manager has been out of leave. I am not sure what type of business they are running over there but I am giving Thrive, Exel, anyone until Friday for my sofa to show up. If not, I will be disputing and I've already located another mid century modern retailer with very similar products also based in CA who is handling business with their customer service. My money and actual review will be going to them! Hoping Thrive will turn this around but not confident at this point.
The sofa looks nice. As other reviews have mentioned, the back is quite firm, but I don't find it uncomfortable. Note, the delivery service that Thrive uses is quite disappointing. I paid extra for "white glove" delivery. They damaged the elevator trying to get the couch in, then abandoned the effort and left the couch. I was able to get the couch into the elevator later, after the delivery service left, but had to get the rest done on my own. What exactly did I pay extra for? Note, the Thrive "restocking" fee is huge, so you will want to make sure that the sofa fits into all elevators and doorways it has to pass through on its way into your home.
Do not be fooled. This sofa and loveseat are terrible quality. I can lift the entire sofa with one hand. The cushions are stiff. I am returning mine. Not worth any price.
I purchased the tyler loveseat in klein azure during the memorial day sale. I did not receive the loveseat in 4 weeks or even the original date that was quoted. Customer Service was very helpful, they gave me a discount & they replied to my emails in a timely fashion. Now, I've been living with the loveseat for months now and I can say the frame seems decent but the klein fabric is just awful. It looks fuzzy and worn. The worst part is the hair. We do have a dog that sheds but I can NOT get the hair out of the fabric. I vacuum, I pull it out with my fingers, it is beyond frusturating. Also, this is not a cozy seat. Snuggles with the family just aren't happening on this. I'd return it if it weren't for the cost of shipping. 2 stars are for the cool design, made in usa, and sturdy frame.
Now that I have the couch, I'm a happy camper. A VERY important note to make though is that this loveseat does not actually have pillows with three buttons (as pictured). I chose this one after looking through many photos and I decided I preferred the look of the 3-button cushion to the 4-button on some of the other models. When it arrived, I called Thrive to tell them I received the wrong cushions. They didn't quite understand because apparently this sofa is sold with the 4-button. So a week later I receive a second pair of 4-button cushions. I call back and tell them my situation again, then another week later I receive the 3-button that we're specially requested. I told them how important it is that the photo above is accurate. This is a significant purchase for someone to make. Now, 8 months later in the winter... the same photo is still up. The loveseat itself is great, and I am happy with it.. my advice is to be aware of what it is that you ordered and its design when it arrives.
We ordered this sectional in Cordova Eclipse. It does look very nice but the fabric snags easily and I'm afraid it won't last very long. But the real problem is the base. The legs do not screw in flush to the base and work their way loose. The legs just aren't cut to fit flush. It's great disappointment. We purchased an ottoman as well and it also has the same issue.
We've had our Nixon sofa in Klein Azure for a few months now, and we're fairly disappointed. The positives: the sofa is absolutely gorgeous, the color is great, and it's firm and comfy. We get tons of compliments on this couch. However, the negatives far outweigh the positives. The biggest issue is that the fabric just does not hold up well. Within days of getting the couch, it snagged just from the cat WALKING on it. And the one time she did scratch, the fabric snagged WAY more than anything I've had in the past. Plus, the dark color shows absolutely every bit of fur or crumb that gets dropped on it, and has just enough texture to make it absolutely maddening to try to get stuff off. We've tried vacuuming, lint rollers, and picking off by hand, but still the stubborn bits of fur cling. Ick! Maybe if you live in a house without pets or kids, this is the couch for you, but we wish we'd bought something else. (And yes, we know that there's a 365 day return policy, but we're thousands of miles from CA, so the cost of shipping it back is prohibitive. Plus, I'm not sure if they'll do a return on something that has pet damage.)
First of all, when I ordered the furniture, I was meticulous and asked many questions. I give the customer service guys at Thrive 5 stars! I finally ordered and 5 weeks later I had what looked like an amazing sofa that exceeded all my expectations, but a few days later I noticed that the foam back cushions were not upholstered straight, and the foam was cut too small so there were gaps on the ends. Once again, after showing customer service a few picture, they really took care of the issue and shipped me new back cushions. The new ones were much fuller and definitely cut right, they were almost too full! So once again props to the CS team. Now having used the sofa for 4 months, the left side seat has developed a minor squeak in the spring, and overall the foam seat cushions have softened considerably, to the point where its not comfortably or good for the back. If you plan on being on this sofa for hours at a time, you may want to reconsider. Its not the ideal TV sofa, but it LOOKS GREAT! I'm very concerned about the cushion durability. I wish Thrive used a higher density foam or a foam+latex core construction. This couch has the potential to be a STELLAR couch, but the build quality needs to go up. Make this couch worthy enough to pass out on after a long day of work. I believe style AND comfort can be achieved. I am considering to exchange this sofa or return it. Final note of caution, you WILL get compliments on this couch, don't let this praise cloud your judgement allow you to ignore your comfort needs if that is an important factor. I don't regret this couch, but its not perfect.
While the item received is nice enough to keep, we wish it had the proportions pictured. The Wallace Credenza we received is taller, much deeper and on squatter legs than pictured.
The only reason this company got 2 stars is because yes, the quality of the furniture does appear to be very good. My 2-star review concerns their return policy. The website claims a "no fuss" policy and that returns within the first week are free. However, if you click the link, you will see that there is $200+ fee attached to your return. Beware! That is not a free return! The customer is essentially paying several hundred dollars to "shop" at this store, since you cannot sit in the furniture before you buy it. The bottom line: you better know that you will like what you are buying because returning is a poor, money-losing option. I would go to Room and Board before considering buying from this place - prices and quality are comparable and you do not have to deal with the hassle of returns and shipping. Shame on Thrive for their false advertising.
I just got a grand leather sofa and a loveseat... I really like the look; and it seems to be good quality... BUT; we feel really uncomfortable when sit there... it is SLIPPERY! there is something that I can do?? Please I need help... Or should I return it?
I was excited to buy this chair during Thrive's Labor Day Sale, I got 20% off. Part of the discount agreement was that the chair would take 6 weeks to arrive. That was fine with me as I was happy to get this discount. I was very happy when I found out that our chair would get to us in 4 weeks instead of 6 weeks. The chair came defected and dirty. There were dirty hand prints all over the chair. The box wasn't taped, so it looked like it would be easy for someone to mishandle it during shipment if they opened the box. The defect was a missing 4th hole for the legs that screw on. So the chair wouldn’t stand up with just three legs. The chair was larger than it appears in picture, make sure to read the measurements. This is a mid-century chair on steroids! My husband and I both fit in the chair at the same time! I was more of a love seat than an armchair. The out of scale size of this piece totally overwhelmed our mid-century house. While I appreciate the quality fabric and form of the piece, the size of furniture needs to stay true to the time period. If you are unhappy with your Thrive piece, make sure you initiate the return immediately, if you wait more than 7 days, you are out of luck and will have to pay for shipping and restocking fee. I initiated my return immediately, it took a week for the third party delivery company to call me to schedule a pick up, then it took 5 WEEKS for the chair to ship from East Coast back to California. Then it took a week after Thrive finally received the chair back for me to receive my refund. I hope you are happy with your purchase, if you'd like to return, good luck. It may take you 2 months to get your money back. I did like the fabric, and we got a much nicer chair, for less, upholstered in exactly the same fabric from CB2.
I just received the sofa. It looks really nice. I was a bit disapointed with the quality. The wooden base has to screwed on the sofa. One of the "screw-hole" was not properly made and the screw did not fit... Ended up using a hammer to get the screw in.... Made me wonder about the quality of the rest of the sofa... My main complain is about customer service. I called a week before my sofa was suppose to shit to get an update: I was told there will be a delay of 1 to 2 weeks. I called again the day the sofa was supposed to ship. I was told again 1 to 2 weeks delay but to call back later that week for an update. I called again 2 days later. My sofa was shipped 2 days prior... I did NOT receive an email informing me of the shipment. I would not have know it was on its way if I did not phone. Overall: Likes that sofa, not sure how long it will last, HATED customer service...
The chair arrived on time and the upholstery looks ok, but it came with a bent and angled leg on the bottom frame. It looks like it was manufactured that way rather than bent in shipment since there are no tears at the joint. You can see the grinding/sanding pattern a bit from the welding, as well, which is annoying but not a deal breaker. I called immediately upon delivery about the broken base and sent photos. Customer service said to wait 15 business days for a new base to screw one. 20 business days later, with no replacement, I emailed asking where my base was. I got a 'looking into today' message but apparently someone over their is confused or lost because I haven't heard from them. Still. Nothing like a busted lounge chair to finish off the living room...
I was getting ready to move and needed new furniture. I found Thrive and watched the site for months, continually coming back again and again, contemplating if this was the right choice, which model, etc. I waited for the Labor Day sale and finally took the plunge. I ordered the Expectation Gray in this loveseat. When it arrived, I was happy with the outward appearance. But then... I tried sitting on it. This is the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE couch that I have ever sat on. I tried everything, but no improvement. Honestly if you lay down on this thing for more than 5 minutes, you'll get back pains. I contacted Thrive within the first 7 days and as of yet, they remain unresponsive despite the return policy. I can't take it anymore - tonight I actually listed it on Craigslist cheaply just to see if I could even give it away, that's how over this couch I am!!! If you want a couch for show - this is a good choice. If you want a couch that you'll enjoy sitting on - this is not it.
I ordered a McKinley table during the Labor Day sale with anticipated 12 week delivery. I emailed (received no reply) and called on 10/4/13 to cancel the order. Was promised my credit card would be refunded, but it might take 7 or so days. A week later, on 10/11, there was no refund on my credit card and I received notification that the table has shipped. Called again. Apologizes for the mixup and promised that it would be cancelled, credit card refunded, and table recalled from the shipper. And wouldn't you know it? None of those things happened. I checked the tracking on the shipment on 10/20 and noticed that it was on its way to me (and my credit card had still not been refunded). Called Thrive AGAIN on 10/21. More apologizes and a promise from someone to call me back in several hours to let me know the shipment had been cancelled. No one called me back, of course. I called the shipping company myself today (10/22), since it appears Thrive customer service can't follow up on anything. At least the shipping company finally has notice to send the table back to Thrive. If my credit card isn't refunded in several days, I'll take that up with my credit card company to dispute the charge.
This is the 2nd sofa we purchased from Thrive (first one was filled with "down" and it wore terribly - got lumpy and the fabric wrinkled up after sitting on it after a couple days) and although this sofa looks exactly like the photo, and is filled with a foam material, it is extremely uncomfortable. More like a sofa you would buy for a room that's rarely used. The sofa is stiff and hard and not one you would want to curl up on. Sadly, we'll be sending this one back too. For the price of their sofas, you would hope they would at least be somewhat comfortable.
We ordered the Fillmore L shaped sectional and so far... very pleased in every way. Yes, the cushions are firm and in my experience, that is a sign of good quality, not poor quality as the other reviewer stated. (dense foam is more expensive) It is very comfortable and I think it will hold up well. We decided on the Klein Granite fabric as we have two large dogs which we allow on the sofa. So far, no issues with snags and the fabric seems substantial. The sofa and large ottoman shipped well ahead of schedule and didn't take long to get to Ohio. It did take a week once it was here for the local shuffling to get it to the actual delivery company... but it was still delivered in less than 4 weeks from when we ordered it. Delivery guys were courteous and efficient. I am very pleased with my purchase and happy that we decided to go with Thrive.
It's now been almost a year since I purchased this sofa and the matching ottoman in the Klein Azure and the material has not held up well. From the first week I received it, I noticed that it snagged easily but loved the look enough to deal with it. Unfortunately, in the following months, while I was trying to be very careful, the material continued to snag. It also seems to grab fuzz from blankets, making it impractical for lounging. I appreciate the 365 day return policy, but in reality it's not practical. I would pay quite a bit of money to return this sofa since I live on the Northeast, and, since the sofa has some damage, I risk not receiving a return.
Looks like it's supposed to. However the legs were facing the wrong direction. I was told by customer service to lift the sofa (I am a senior citizen) and twist the legs into the right position. This should have been done by them. THE CUSHIONS MUST BE MADE FROM CONCRETE, THEY ARE SOOOO HARD! (Other customers complained about this too) For the price, they could have used better foam and some cushioning. I am considering sending this back, as it's only a "show sofa", no one could enjoy sitting on it.
Yesterday, I received the Clifford Table. I unpacked it, set it up, and to my dismay, there were multiple scratches. It's Sunday and I can't get customer service until tomorrow. I hope that the free return and full refund will be honored. I can't imagine it won't be. The website is very customer friendly, but there are different statements about return policy on the website that now have me confused. I hope to report a satisfactory return experience in future posts.
My Sullivan sofa, upholstered in Omega Doeskin, is wonderful. It is firm to sit on, the cushions do not flip up if one sits astraddle of two cushions, and it seems well made. My only complaints are: I asked several times for the fiber content of the upholstery I chose, so when and if I ever need to have the sofa cleaned, I can tell the cleaner what it is made of (which makes a difference in how they clean it). To date, no fiber content information. Another issues was the early delivery of the sofa. Normally one likes to get things early, but we had taken advantage of the 30% off offer that came with a 90-day delivery time. That would give us time to get rid of our old sectional before delivery of the new sofa. Imagine our surprise when we were told a few weeks after purchase that our new sofa was on it's way, and we would receive a call shortly to schedule the delivery. Ack! Arms and elbows flying as we had to find a home for the old furniture. And then, . . . It turns out that someone at some level input an incorrect zip code, and the delivery agent was all set to delivery to a city 150 miles away, despite us telling both Thrive and Manna that the zip code/city was wrong. The delivery agent was all upset and promised to delivery a few days later, and he would call me. No call. It was trying and trying to call AJ Express (the delivery agent) and Manna (Thrive's delivery company), plus Thrive, to get someone to finally tell me what day I should receive the sofa. No response. Meanwhile, I was in limbo, afraid to miss a call, and afraid to leave the house in the chance the sofa would be delivered without further calls to me. Not fun. My thanks to Gabriel at Thrive Customer Support for finally sorting things out. So, to make a long story short, the product is wonderful, the delivery, not so much.
We looked for couches forever, and finally found the Taylor, which was exactly the look we were trying to find. It came in pristine condition and was even more beautiful than online. However, it is not the couch you want for everyday use. The cushions are very stiff and seem to almost push you forward and the back forces you to sit up straight. There's no relaxing on this couch. It would be perfect for an entryway or a sitting room that doesn't get much use. But for a living room couch you would like to spend quite a bit of time on, this isn't the right choice. We'll sadly be returning it.
Awesome, would recommend!
I got my beautiful red Nixon couch two weeks lates. When it finally did arrive it took my husband and a bit of time putting on the legs which did not match up to the frame very well but managed to some how get the legs in. Not easy. Then the couch had several grease pen marks/smugdes on the cushions and one arm and a run in one of the cushions. I loved this couch and didn't want to send it back. Crystal from customer service was amazing. I sent her the stains and the run through pics from my iphone. She sent me two new cushion covers for free and a can of degreaser that got out the stains w/out leaving a oily residue. Now the couch is amazing! I'm going to give Thrive one more shot when I buy a chair to go with my couch during the Labor Day sale. I think a 3 is fair.
I purchased two Sullivan chairs in lucky turqoise for my living room. The entire experience from order to delivery was risk free and hassle free. The chairs are beautiful, well made, and perfect for my living room. I plan to order a sofa from Thrive in the near future.
I love my Fillmore Loveseat! I had the in-home delivery service since I live in a multi-story apartment. It was worth the extra cost! The guys were efficient, timely, and very professional. The quality of the loveseat is outstanding. I like how firm the seats and back feel. I am 5'5", and able to stretch out comfortably for a nap or watch tv. It's just a perfect size for my small apartment. I am now eyeing a Thrive chair and console. Thank you for an excellent product!
I ordered the Nixon chair because it looked very nice. When I got it, two of the inserts where the legs attach were installed crooked, so the legs wouldn't screw in properly. I was disappointed that they would let something like this through without checking that the legs install properly. I called customer service ready to return it for a refund, but they offered to send a new base. Okay, I can work with that. the base gets here and it's not even for the same chair. So here I am with a defective chair and non-matching legs, too late to make the 7-day free return shipping window. This will make me think twice about ordering furniture online again.
Wife found the Thrive web site and we ordered samples. When we received the samples to our surprise, they were large sample swatches, not the small postage stamp size you normally get. It was very easy to select the material color we wanted. The sofa arrived within the time period stated and was boxed, bagged and arrived perfect. If you want good American made furniture, Thrive is the place to get it. Any more purchases we need to make will be made through Thrive. Keep up the great work!!
It took a loooong time for our Nixon in leather to come home. Customer service about its status was next to nothing. When we finally got it. It looks exactly as we had hoped. It's quite grand. Unfortunately, we aren't enjoying it as much as we'd like because it's one noisy piece of furniture. You can hear anytime someone changes position on the sofa. It's like someone put a whoopie cushion under the leather! We're hoping the leather will soften up and be less noisy with time and use.
This chair along with matching ottoman exceeded our expectations. Terrific looking in living room. Value excellent. Thank you
Overall we're a bit disappointed with these chairs. We waited a loooong time to receive them. We ordered during the Labor Day sale for 20% off, but ended up waiting more than two months to receive the chairs. The frames are beautiful and clearly well constructed. The cushions feel like they came off of a chair intended for outdoor use. The fabric is also thin - just seems like the cushions would feel completely worn out in a month, and they're not really even comfortable to begin with. Also, the chairs are quite a bit larger than I had anticipated (my mistake for not studying the dimensions on the website). They're not quite like the Danish chairs from the mid-century - they're bigger and the proportions seem kind of off. Just my opinion. We had guests over who complimented us on the chairs.
It took several more weeks than they originally said to receive my two chairs for my living room, but they are seriously gorgeous pieces of furniture and worth the wait. The craftsmanship of the wood is wonderful, the cushions are comfortable, and the fabric is lovely. Very happy with my purchase.
great looking chair, 2 issues with the frame, you need to screw in the legs yourself, one leg could not be screwed in due to the plastic footing being in the way (easy fix but still) The other leg screwed in half way and then the IKEA quality holding screw detached from the frame. Read yelp reviews, that seems like an issue, wish i did my homework better
Overall I like it, there's a couple of things that do stand out in a bad way. The side edges for the top and bottom,pieces are not edge banded, which is no big deal for me, I do like exposed plywood, however, they used a lot of wood filler, which makes the edges look sloppy. Also, the construction of the drawers is a little weird, they used a box joint, which is an odd choice when using plywood, again, in theory I'm ok with that, except that once again, a lot of wood filler covering up nail holes on the drawer fronts. So other than the very apparent use of wood filler, which to me denotes either low standards or poor quality control, it's a solid unit....
I admit I was hesitant ordering furniture online but decided to give Thrive a chance and ordered a Tyler sofa and matching ottomans. We like classic styled, quality furniture and the color we picked adds to the "Southwestern" theme of the room. I subtract only one star here due to the delayed delivery of our order. We received the furniture 8 weeks after ordering instead of the promised 4 weeks. However, we weren't in a hurry and will certainly place another order soon. I have my eye on some Roosevelt or Kennedy chairs.
This bed has a stability that I've never felt before, and the resulting mattress support translates to a great night's sleep. The low profile is a nice balance between the various bed heights I've had in the past, and the curved headboard makes for a tastefully unique appearance and a charming feel...when reading in bed and upon waking. I was worried about the height of the headboard making our ceiling look lower, but it was quite the opposite. This bed is beautiful and well-crafted - as pictured. The pieces arrive with a startling amount of packaging that you may wish you had paid to have removed upon delivery. The sea of plastic and cardboard is a necessary evil, but it feels like skinning an unhappy elephant. Remove the packaging with care because the upholstery will catch and pull. There were a half dozen unsightly thread pulls (probably from removing the packaging), but I just cut them off. I don't foresee pulls being a problem in the future as long as it stays put. No assembly instructions or tips are provided, but they should be. While this process appears simple, the weight of the headboard means that you need two strong people to lift each side..to delicately attach it to the metal brackets on the base...like a low-level game of Tetris played with upholstered concrete pylons. It'd be nice to have a third person around to keep the base from moving during this wonky step. Do not take the assembly lightly. The headboard is top heavy and slick. My side slipped right out of my grip, and the base bracket that accepts the headboard caught on the fabric and cleanly ripped about six inches up...only stopping because the bottom of the headboard hit the floor. Fortunately, that tear is covered by the mattress, but it taunts me in my sleep. If you learn from these mishaps, you'll be very happy with this purchase.
Since I live in a furniture desert (Louisiana), I was forced to online shop for a sofa. I am beyond pleased with the results. The Tyler sofa is VERY comfortable, such high quality, and gorgeous. We got it in the Klein Granite, which pretty much goes with everything. Excellent customer service as well!
We ordered our Tyler sectional over the memorial day weekend like it seems many others did. I just called customer service and it will be two weeks before we receive the couch, this will make it 4 weeks later than the 4 week estimate given when it was ordered. I am sure the product will be great once we receive it but I cannot understand how we were not notified when there have been delays or updates. I have now called customer service 4 times to get an update on the order. All it would have taken would have been an email saying that production has been delayed and the new expected time is X. Seems like customer service 101. I dont mind waiting but I do mind having to call to find out that I will be waiting. The rest of the experience has been great so I cannot understand how this seemingly small but very important process has been overlooked.
I am an interior designer and I have so many options available to me but nothing wowed me more than this bed. Bravo to Thrive for developing a line of furniture that no one else comes close to. Great Style, Great quality. I love that it's something you just don't see anywhere else. Thanks Thrive! I love my bed!
So bummed, ordered a couch from you guys on 5/31in anticipation of my in laws visiting. Absolutely love your furniture but my experience with you guys has really sucked. After numerous calls I speak to Ricky on 6/27 who explains that your running behind on orders, I get it but how hard wold it have been to let me know this? Then I'm promised that 7/12/13 my Couch will ship but unfortunately all I get is your voicemail and ignored, can't seem to get in touch with anyone. Just filed a complaint with BBB and Monday will begin to try to get my money back through my Credit Card company
We ordered our Fillmore sofa after reading all the reviews available and doing as much research as possible. I was still nervous about buying a sofa sight unseen. We ordered the Fillmore in Klein Granite and it is beautiful and oh so comfortable! I love it. To top it off, it arrived the exact day we moved into our new home, perfect timing! Thank you Thrive!
Who orders a couch online without sitting on it? I did. Thrive has a great website and great customer service that was super helpful throughout the whole process. I debated between this and the Taylor. The only difference is the piping around the cushons - we went for a more stream lined look. What we like about the sofa is the fabric - we went with yellow (cross fingers no stains!) and it feels good to the touch and gives the room a real happy feeling. The size of the couch is nice - perfect for an apartment and a small living room. I am just over 6'0 and can lay down in it perfectly and have a nap. If my wife and I want to lay down together we take out the back cushions and voila - perfect. So why the 4 stars? It's actually more our fault probably than Thrives. The back cushion just seems to low and the arm rests on the edge of the couch should be a bit wider. Again, it's the design of the sofa itself, and in retrospect perhaps buying a couch online is one of those things that is super hard to do and be 100% happy. The sofa arrived in 4 days. WOW. We also got the Nixon chair and LOVE that chair. Overall I am happy with the Thrive quality and would recommend it to others.
ChAir is well made and comfortable. However they do take longer promised and delivery service is abhorrent. They called us the morning of our delivery to tell us whoops they didnt have the chair yet. We had already taken the day off and lost work. To reschedule we had to call them and their delivery window was 4 hours. Another day lost. I called thrive and told them about it but it was not addressed.
I previously owned a Restoration Hardware Maxwell sofa...the ex took it. So imagine my excitement to find the same sofa at a significantly reduced price on the Thrive website. I read the reviews and placed my order via phone; Jacquie took my order and was ABSOLUTELY awesome. Fun to talk to and was able to offer me an even better discount....that was on April 23. Would you believe that today (June 14), almost two months later, I just now received the sofa?! This was after receiving a series of excitement-inducing emails with inaccurate shipping dates from Thrive. It was absolutely impossible to get a straight answer from anyone with regard to the ship date; it just dragged on and on without any progress. I paid extra for the white glove delivery and was assigned a delivery date for which I stayed home from work....(you know where this is going)...received a call halfway through the day that the couch would not be delivered for another week. After I pulled a nutty on the phone with the shipping agent they were able to make arrangements to have it to me 5 days later instead of 7....which yes, required me to take another day off from work. The sofa is fantastic and exactly what I wanted; it's exactly the same as my Maxwell Sofa from Restoration Hardware. I'm not a complainer and typically am a pretty patient guy but the experience with Thrive once the order was placed and credit card was charged was beyond frustrating and extremely disappointing. There was little follow through, communication was inaccurate and the length of time required to get the couch to me was completely unacceptable. I realize that the shipping is probably not directly Thrive's fault however they gladly took my money and should be partnered with vendors that can be a bit more reliable. In summary, if I had to do it over I honestly think I would have just ordered a new Maxwell sofa from Restoration Hardware (which is on sale at the time of writing this review)....yes it would have been a few more dollars but I would have gladly paid more to get the sofa to me in less time. The sofa is finally in my living room and there's no question that the product is gorgeous and everything I was hoping...but my enthusiasm for it and Thrive Furniture are couched!
Nice table. Would like to see a selection of dining room sets (tables/chairs) in your store.
Beautiful chair but..unless you're Tall your feet will not meet the floor! It would also be nice if this chair was available in some vibrant colors in leather. I'm giving this chair a 5 for style and 3- due to the feet not meeting the floor issue.
There's a leap of faith when buying a piece of furniture off the internet, even when holding a hand full of swatches. I read all the reviews. Looked at all the pictures. Facebook friended. And then they had a President's Day Sale and I decided to go for it. I bought the Tyler Loveseat in Cordova Amber and I could not be happier with my purchase. It is comfortable. It is stylish. It is ORANGE (my favorite color). It has a lovely texture. It's perfect for three people or an afternoon nap. It looks smashing in my mid-century modern living room. Now it's time to get it an ottoman.
This couch is great. Everything I was looking for, the look, the level of comfort and the build. As an architect I would recommend this to any of my clients.
This ottoman is well built and comfy. Great addition to my living room!
I ordered the Cleveland Sofa, Hayes Chair and Kennedy Rocker for my living room. I could't be more pleased with this combination - it looks great! And the service provided by Crystal and the Thrive team is world class.
I received my chairs and love them they are just what I had hoped they would be. I have been looking for for a long time. My home is small, my living room smaller my kids are grown so I decided to just have chairs. These two are perfect then with an accent chair for guests and a bench it is all my husband and I need. Found them by accident on my furniture search so glad I did! Received the swatches I requested in a couple days and went from there. This won't be my last purchase.
This chair is beautifully made and incredibly comfortable. It looks fantastic. My husband had been opposed to buying it but now that it's here, he loves it and has even made it his preferred place to sit. It took longer to arrive than we had expected (over 2 months) but we weren't in a hurry and it was well worth the wait. So thrilled to have something so very well made, and made in the USA. It's truly beautiful.
I just received the Nixon Loveseat in Klein Citrus and it's a wonderful couch. Clearly made with good design and high quality materials. Thank you!
Received my Nixon sofa in Klein citrus a few days ago. It is beautiful. Just love it. It is a show piece. It really brightens up the room and has a touch of elegance. Comfortable too. I just love it. It arrived in abut 3 weeks. More than I could have hoped for.
Had a great experience with Thrive. We weren't sure whether or not to go with full size or love seat. If you don't have a huge house with a giant living room space then the love seat will do just fine. Yes the Nixon is firm, but in a good way (if you don't like sinking into your couch you will be happy). A few details on what to expect from the delivery process--at least this is how it worked for us: once it is ready to ship you will get an email with a link to a 3rd party delivery company with tracking info (ours came in less than 4 weeks!). Though the delivery co provided info on where the love seat was located along its destination route of cities, it didn't give an estimated date of arrival until it got to the final city. All total it took about 10-12 days to get to us in Austin, TX after we got the initial tracking info. Once it was in our city we got a call from the delivery co to set up a time of delivery. They gave us a 2 hour window for an estimated arrival time and then called when they were on their way. All in all a very smooth process. Thanks Thrive!
We had been looking for the perfect sectional and here we found it. We purchased the color Key Largo Aqua and it looks so perfect in our light green living room. It took 10 minutes to put together upon arrival. We experienced wonderful customer service throughout the entire ordering and delivery process. I would recommend Thrive to everyone! Thanks for being a great American company that stands by their furniture with a strong product guarantee.
When I found Thrive Furnishings online, I was thrilled that they produced midcentury modern style furniture locally. After admiring the Nixon sofa online for a couple months and discovering that Thrive has been around for over ten years, I decided that it was the right sofa for our living room space, and that they were the right company to buy from. After trying out the sofa in the factory warehouse by appointment, we purchased the sofa online in Klein Azure a week later during the Presidents Day sale. We were very excited to purchase our first new piece of furniture for our new house, proud to purchase American-made right here in southern California, and from a good company to boot. When the sofa arrived, the delivery guys were very cheerful and professional. They removed it from the box in the truck, then brought it straight into our living room and proceeded to remove it from the giant plastic bag. As the sofa was laid momentarily on its back, we all noticed a large nick missing from the wooden base of the piece. It looked as if a wooden knot had fallen out but the hollowed-out part had still been stained. I asked what it was, and the guys admitted it didn't look very good to them. I was relieved that they were so honest and didn't try to cover it up or brush it under the rug. After a little discussion with the company, the guys returned one week later with a new base that was perfectly constructed. They took out the old one and screwed in the new one. Meanwhile, back at the company office, they were busily discussing how such an indiscretion could have occurred during production and ways they could avoid the same problem in the future. They convinced me that it's not a common occurrence. I still can't believe it happened, as it was such an obviously bad piece of wood that the workers should not have used, but I felt confident once the company took positive steps to ameliorate the situation. They even honored the seven days free return from the date the new base was delivered and installed, but I didn't need it after all. We sit on the sofa when we're not wearing grubby clothing so it stays nice and clean. I had tried pouring water on the swatch they had given me when I visited the factory showroom; the water rolled off just as it did in the video, but when left to sit a while or if pressed into the fabric, the water does go through. It is, after all, made of cotton, and I've also accepted that it will fade over time. Thrive has ensured me that they can reupholster the piece in the future. Meanwhile, we'll just take care of it as a formal piece of furniture. As for the feel of the sofa, it's very firm and stiff, which is why I selected it for our living room. I don't fancy the idea of a sofa in my formal room that sags or needs to be frequently fluffed up. I plan to buy a big, ugly, comfy couch for the family room next. That's the one everyone can jump on and if it gets misshapen, I won't really care. I feel good about supporting their business, I enjoy the look and feel of our sofa, and I would definitely buy from them again.
I have to say - the images on the website do not do this couch justice. I am so glad I went for it (sight unseen - a scary way to buy furniture!!). I purchased this in Klein Granite, which is a perfect neutral. The photo makes the seat cushions look almost limp and thin. They are actually really firm and comfortable, but with good 'bounce'. Not overly plush (not an "overstuffed" look at all) but this couch is VERY comfortable. It's modern and elegant but not stark - and definitely not fussy (have I mentioned I hate fussy furniture?!). I did have an issue with the cushions due to a delivery error but Thrive is replacing them for me and they're slated to arrive on Monday - fingers crossed. I LOVE the depth of this couch - cozy. I have a long, narrow (ish) living room and couldn't do a sectional (L-shaped would have worked okay, barely) but I wanted to make sure I had enough seating. You could EASILY fit 5 adults on this thing. It fits perfectly in my space, it doesn't overwhelm the room but it has enough visual interest to make it a statement piece. I just love this sofa. High quality - I truly hope it survives the test of time and I have it to enjoy for years to come. Thank you Thrive - I will be back for more.
This sofa is fantastic -- incredibly large, but fantastic. It is quite wide, great for two people lying down. Unlike the other reviewer, I find that most people love sleeping on it (it's almost at big as a double bed). My only problem with it are the back pillows -- I wish they were a little more firm -- they are very soft and lose their shape easily.
This is an update to my Sept. 18, 2012 review. I'm writing this review update to say that I decided to return my Jefferson Sofa and two chairs. I did this NOT because the quality and look weren't amazing - they were! I'm 5'0" tall and my husband is 5'6" tall. The Jefferson seat cushions are very deep - too deep for us. I decided to write this update to assure potential customers that even in the return process, the staff at Thrive was amazing. We choose to purchase the Nixon sofa and two chairs since they weren't as deep as the Jefferson but still had a flat back and minimal seat cushions (did you know, Thrive will work with you on the number of seat cushions?). Since we were buying new furniture from them, the staff worked with us to secure a shipper and shipping quote. We arranged that when the new furniture (Nixon) shipped, that same shipper would pick up the old furniture (Jefferson). The cost to pick up the furniture we were returning was $450, a very reasonable price considering the 90" long sofa and two large chairs had to be repackaged by the shipper for shipping and then shipped from Houston to Los Angeles. The shipper (Manna) was FANTASTIC. Once the furniture arrived back in LA, Thrive issues a full refund immediately. So, if you're scared to make such a significant online purchase, don't be! First off, I live in Texas, so not only did I not pay shipping for the original purchase, but I also didn't pay tax. Even if I had bought locally, I would have paid a delivery fee and tax. I believe that I got the better deal buying from Thrive. So, the shipping cost that I ended up having to pay to return the furniture six months later, was well worth it and we're very happy with the Nixon purchase. To top it off, did you read how environmentally friendly Thrive is? Like icing on the cake! Thrive: you should considering offering two options for the beautiful Jefferson line. One sofa as it is today and another less deep option - maybe four-to-five inches shorter (for us short people). Just sayin... :-)
Wow! I did read the reviews prior to purchasing this chair, so I was expecting a chair larger than expected...but, this chair is H-U-G-E. I'm a 5 foot 6 incher, and I feel like "Edith Ann" in this thing. Sitting in this chair, I'm like a small fish in a sea of tranquil beauty. But alas, as large as this chair is, I am a self-diagnosed chair hoarder and I must keep this one! It's really a very beautiful chair and the retro design is fabulous! This chair will be going into our retirement home. I purchased the chair first, and will design the home around it. The good news, I won't need much more furniture with the size of this chair! Whoever designed this chair, helped me in convincing my hubby that I HAD to have this chair, made this chair, created this website, (etc, etc) YOU ALL GET RAISES! (Insert applause here!) I can't tell you how much fun this buying experience was. This gal WILL be back for more!
I've only had it a week. Looks great, though slightly darker than I expected due to lighting differences. Feels solid, is comfortable, heats up fairly quickly--if you're worried about sitting in cold weather. The seat is roomier than I expected; my wife and I can actually sit in it together. The seat is deep and I'm not super tall, so I tend to use an accent pillow, and I'm considering an ottoman. Delivery took well over a month, but I expected this based on online reviews, so I had no problem with it. Customer service was very helpful when I reached out to them, but they are pretty hands-off otherwise, which is perfectly fine with me. I would definitely shop with Thrive again.
I looked at the website for a couple of years before finally ordering the Fillmore sofa in Granite and two Coolidge chairs. When I placed my order, the website said there would be a four week production time plus a week to ship it, so imagine my surprise when, before I even moved my old furniture out, my Thrive order is coming in a couple of weeks early! The sofa looks great and is very comfortable!
Replaced a 23 year old Maurice Villencey sofa with this loveseat in the picante color because recovering the old sofa was nearly as costly as purchasing this new. Yes, I paid nearly $3800 for the contemporary old sofa and arm chair. The frame was in perfect condition, the back cushions softening, the seat cushions too. It survived 2 dogs and I was sorry to see it go. Replacement was a tall order but this sofa seems to fit the specs. The sofa reminds me of the Danish modern furniture I grew up with; an arm chair and cocktail table offered by Thrive are replicas of the originals my parents still own! I was pleased by the packing and early arrival of the Sullivan loveseat. It is better than I expected it to be and the price was definitely a plus. It has a nicely firm cushion--I hate sinking into a cushion and struggling to get off a sofa. The back cushions have a solid bolster feeling and the seat makes it easy to stand up and get going, something one will find necessary when they get to be early 60's. To nitpick, I would have to say the zipper on the cushions should have been in the same basic color instead of black, but at least the are hidden. The warrantee gives me confidence the sofa will hold up. The weight of the piece convinced me this was not flimsy furniture. I don't mind paying for quality and this time I feel as if I stumbled onto a bargain. I'm considering purchasing the matching armchair.
Received my 2 new Tyler Chairs in Expectation Gray. I received them within 3 weeks of the day I placed order. They are perfect. I was torn between the C&B Petrie chair and the Tyler chair but liked the additional tufting on the Tyler chair. The grey is a great color!
I recently received my Tyler Sofa from Thrive, and I couldn't be more pleased. It arrived on schedule, and it's color, craftsmanship and comfort have all exceeded my expectations. I requested fabric samples, and not only did they send them out pronto, they also sent a 15% discount for my order! Super classy move. The sofa is now the centerpiece to my mid-century/rustic mash-up of a living room, and it's certainly been a conversation piece. Kudos to you, Thrive, for a job well done.
We have had our Sullivan love seat for a few months now and we absolutely love it. It is so comfortable - and over-sized for a loveseat. We purchased it in cordova eclipse and the fabric is wearing wonderfully, even with a dog. We will definitely be making more purchases from Thrive!
I purchased this Nixon loveseat with Brompton Brown leather and the lighter colored legs in early November 2012. I've been sitting on it and falling asleep on it every evening since. It is the perfect size. Quite large for a loveseat, but fits perfectly in my 1920's Dutch Colonial with a small living room. My other couches are Roche Bobois, and the quality and comfort of this loveseat is as good and suits me better than that other set. (and is incredibly good value) I absolutely love this couch and so does my cat! The seats are good foam and so far it is breaking in very nicely. It is VERY comfortable. The shipping ended up a bit crazy as it came quite a bit ahead of time which I didn't want since autumn is my busiest time at my business and I was going to be away all week. It came early week wise and very, very, late in the day as it was just after hurricane sandy. I warn people who think they can manage moving this by themselves. I have a lot of experience moving "stuff" and I would not have been able to get this into my home even with a big guy to help me. It took both the driver who helped since he was about 8 hours late (with no updates or calls)and my friend, ( nice enough to come to help in the first place, then nice enough to stay for an extra five hours), to both move it in. It is very heavy and though strong, I would not have been able to hold my end up. It all worked out in the end, but unless you have two very big guys and/or three or four women, you aren't going to move this yourselves!
We received our Nixon chair in Cordova Picante about a week ago and it's already a family favorite. The fabric is the perfect color to liven up the room next to our tan couch and the style and quality is great. It's big enough that I can easily sit with one of my kids or curl up in it comfortably by myself. Very happy with the service and delivery time (less than three weeks from order to delivery) and I would definitely order from Thrive again.
This was our first purchase from Thrive, and we love this chair. It's a perfect two-seater; cozy, sturdy and well-made. We made another purchase on Thrive shortly afterwards and are excited for the new items to arrive.
This is a beautiful chair--my first piece of adult furniture! I was worried it would be too big or bulky for my small (600 sq. foot) apartment, but I have it paired with the Nixon loveseat in my living room, and it works great. Highly recommended.
Ok - the bed is great - exactly as represented online. I got the Jefferson bed (king). The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of communication and terrible back and forth with the shipping. I will say however, that shipping manager at Thrive, Jennifer was great. She listened to my complaints, apologized and over and over again sought solutions. That is absolutely huge and I send my compliments for that. They charge $300 for white glove delivery with putting together the furniture... this is extremely expensive and I hope they find a better solution. Making quality furniture that looks great is very important... but Thrive doesn't realize that getting it to their customers in a hassle free manner that is cost effective is JUST AS IMPORTANT. I hated calling customer service, asking to be transferred to a person and then being transferred to a voicemail message that didn't allow you to leave a message and then hangs up on you. (this happened at least twice) There was no communication from Thrive when production lasted longer than 4 weeks (it ended up around 5). And, the communication around shipping was poor. You get an email with a tracking number that doesn't tell you anything. You don't get told you're going to get a call. And, time after time after time, the shipping company they hired for delivery told me they weren't authorized to put together the bed (even though that's what I was paying for). Anyway, it all worked out in the end and it's a great bed, but the hassles around shipping were a pain.
Well made and surprisingly light considering how sturdy it is. A neat angular design but not an angular feel at all: soft cushions and the elbow rests on the arms of the chair make for a real comfortable chair. Customer service was also great. Very happy with the entire experience.
I have had my sofa for a few months now and I LOVE it. I was a bit hesitant ordering online at first, but you just cannot beat free shipping when you live as far away from a major city as I do. The piece is stylish, comfortable and even doubles as a twin bed when we have company (if you remove the back cushions). We get compliments on it all the time!
I ordered the light gray and am very happy with with the color and the style of the couch. The reason why I'm giving it 4 stars is because a Thrive person assured me that the two parts (chaise and sofa) had a clasp to keep them together. Unfortunately, this couch does not, and the two parts do slide a little. It's easy to push them back in to place, but I would have preferred that there be a clasp.
Thank you Thrive, the evening the couch arrived we couldn't believe how well it was packaged, Is the Hope Diamond in here somewhere? We carefully removed the packaging only to reveal a greater treasure...... a fine piece of furniture, the material was of the highest quality and felt perfect to the touch, the craftsmanship of the couch itself was awesome, you could see it was put together buy craftsmen. The wood on the couch was stained beautifully and was another detail that they paid attention to. As we sat on our new sofa for the first time, we had a collective sigh and we turned to each other and said,"Wow,this is a great sofa!". Thanks,Michael & Ann Mason,Washington, Michigan
We purchased the Nixon in Klein Citrus. The box is much bigger than the chair, so the delivery company had to leave it by the door on the bottom floor (shouldn't be a problem for modern houses, my building was built in the 1760's). First, it's so comfortable and it's soo wide. I can sit indian style and my knees don't touch the arm rests (I'm 5'6). The craftsmanship is impeccable and the wood base is warming. I'm very happy we went with Thrive in terms of quality, price (we got a 20% off sale) and shipping. The fabric is also a winner. The Klein Citrus is more of a yellowy-orange to us. The fabric is textured and has little threads of different colors of yellow and orange running horizontally across the piece--it's pleasant and interesting to touch. Another plus is that my great grandma had a chair similar to the Nixon but it was thrown away before I could claim it (I was three years old--I didn't know any better). I'd highly recommend this chair, and we might buy another one if another sale comes along.
We were not able to keep this chair because I measured wrong and it was too big for the space we had. We were so sad about returning it because it was simply gorgeous. The leather was so soft and beautiful and the chair was crazy comfortable. If you want a very wide and deep chair that you can curl up in, this is it. It is a massive chair so make sure you have a room that can accommodate it. If you do, this is a leather chair for a very good and highly competitive price.
All we can say is WOW! It is fantastic! We chose the key largo aqua and love it! It is so comfy that even our three children are excited about it! We will order again for sure. It is the centerpiece of our living room and just puts a smile on our faces:). Thanks Thrive for the product and the outstanding service! We received our is two weeks!
Just received our Nixon sofa in Key Largo Aubergine, and it's FANTASTIC - the color is beautiful. I love its firmness - I can tell it won't turn into a slumpy mess in a few years. Delivery was also super fast. I ordered the couch on Black Friday & it was delivered on 12/14. A+!
We were looking for something interesting to go with our eclectic and modern furniture collection. This chair fit the bill perfectly. It is very comfortable and of impeccable quality.
We love our couch. Delivery was very easy and the couch is exactly what we wanted; well built, stylish and comfortable. Sometimes we like to take off the back cushions to give us more space while lying down. overall, very happy!
I spent months researching the perfect sofa to fit my space, and after countless hours spent browsing (online and in stores), I am extremely grateful I stumbled onto the Thrive site. My entire experience purchasing the Tyler Sofa from them has been amazing, from the top-notch customer service I received (professional, timely, and friendly) to the quick delivery (around 3 weeks). This is TRULY a beautiful sofa-comfortable, stylish, and well made. I ordered the sofa in Klein Granite, and the rendered photos do no justice to show how beautiful and well-crafted this sofa is. You won’t be disappointed! Thrive knows what they’re doing, and I wish them nothing but success!! And a huge shout-out to the team that constructed my sofa! I really couldn’t be happier (Now I’m saving up for a coffee table)!!
I was sold on the style, though I had a couple questions, so I emailed Thrive and a reply came back literally one minute later. So I ordered my two Kennedy chairs that afternoon, having good vibes from the customer service aspect. I ordered on November 1st and 14 days later, I have my chairs more than half way across the country. The packing was expertly done, and my chairs arrived in pristine shape. I took them up the three flights of stairs to my urban condo after unpacking them, and they are stunning. Very nice craftsmanship and excellent color, matching the swatch that I was sent earlier in the year. The chairs themselves are much more comfortable than they look, and they fit perfectly in the space that I got them for. I really couldn't be more happy with the entire transaction and product, and highly recommend these chairs to anyone who may be on the fence.
This sofa is beautiful and very well made. The photos on the website are very accurate because there were no surprises when the sofa got delivered. Another reviewer commented that the sofa back is stiff. It is! I had been looking at vintage sofas and this design is VERY accurate for mid century modern design. They told me to expect a 4 week delivery time, but it came much sooner. I would definitely buy furniture from Thrive again. American made, excellent value, terrific construction, great customer service, and BEAUTIFUL designs.
Look: This chair is sick. High quality design and craftsmanship. You cannot go wrong. It looks amazing and it is very comfortable - something that can often be sacrificed for style. Not here. That said: pay close attention to the description of the dimensions. This is a HUGE chair. It's almost a love seat with 40" in width. I knew it was going to be large, but my wife did not pay as close attention to the dimensions and she was a bit put off by it at first. We found a home for it in our living room, though (I almost threatened to take the dog and this chair and leave...), and it is awesome. But caveat emptor on the size so you don't have any conflicting emotions once you get this amazing piece of furniture.
This review is for the Tyler chair, which I could not find in the list! The chair is great and the color is beautiful--Lucky Turquoise. I had a delivery issue with the first chair I bought because Federal Express, through NO FAULT of the people at Thrive, sent it in a truck with one person and wanted to leave it in its box on the driveway. This is after I conformed ahead of time with Fed Ex that in-home delivery had been paid for and specified. When I brought the problem to Thrive's attention, they arranged for a new local deliverer who was absolutely perfect. Thanks. Thrive!
Thrive team, Just got my Dylan credenza, and am very impressed with the quality and finish. Thanks for the very, very quick delivery, too!
We got the couch and loveseat and I love them. They were shipped on-time and arrived by Fedex on-time, no damage, on our front porch. The packaging was easy to take apart and recycle too. They're comfortable and look great. We're really happy with both, but the couches do smell a little chemically, even after a month. Overall, I love the business philosophy. Nice job Thrive!
We just received the Kennedy(cordova eclipse) chair along with the Taylor(cordova amber) Sofa. The sofa and chair are both absolutely amazing! The wood, the material, the color, absolute works of art. We had never seen any of their products in person, so this was a big decision for us. I would recommend requesting the swatches before ordering, because some of them are quite different than they look here. They are definitely worth it, and we will be ordering from thrive again.
I was a bit hesitant to order a couch without having had the chance to sit on it, but I went ahead based on the return guarantee. I'm really glad I did. The couch is well made, VERY comfortable and looks just like the picture. No regrets, and no surprises. It is a bit pricey but the quality makes up for it. You really can't beat the fabric options either..
Absolutely fantanstic!!! I was skeptical about ordering large pieces of furniture online and thanks to Thrive's 365 return policy, I took the plung and ordered the Jefferson Sofa and two Jefferson Chairs in Lisburn Chiffon. They are the most beautiful furniture ever. Super high quality and it's very obvious. The tailoring is impeccable! Even the seat cushions are tailored to follow the lines of the seat back where they come together along the back of the arm rest. Maybe that doesn't make sense to you, but you have to believe me when I say - wow! And I don't know what the other posts were talking about when they said it was hard to get through the packing/shipping material. The furniture was extremely well packed, but a few snips through straps and tape, and the boxes opened up perfectly and we lifted the furniture out. Now, I was left with two wooden pallets and lots of box material and plastic to get rid of and they did leave the furniture in my drive way, but it's still better than paying for the white glove service, which would have cost me $500 total for the three pieces. I guess if lived in a high rise or apartment, it might be worth paying the money for them to unpack and set up and remove packing materials. One thing you have to remember is that they make it when you order it, so it did take about six + weeks to get the furniture, but I know why now - what quality! Don't delay - order today!
I was worried about it arriving late but when it got here it was definitely worth the wait. Its very firm but still comfortable to sleep on. Its in a college apartment and had to come in through the window. I absolutely love it and girls go nuts seeing something other than a futon
It did take waaaaayyyy longer than originally promised but after reading other reviews, we were expecting the wait. We have had the sofa since April and are very pleased. We ordered it in the grey velvet and have been quite happy with the fabric choice. We have 2 small children and a big fat cat. The style is really nice, it is comfortable, and the scale fits well in our 1950's house. Great price and so far the quality seems great as well. Lots of compliments to boot.
We bought this desk for our den and are absolutely overjoyed with how it looks. The wood is beautiful and it's the perfect size. Very stately looking! A few more drawers would be nice but really, we don't have any complaints. The quality alone is worth the price.
I love my Fillmore love seat in Klein Pool. It along with the Kennedy chairs in the same fabric look great in my historic, yes Southern home. The modern look contrasts nicely with my antique Persian rug. Impeccable craftsmanship. I'm already contemplating my next Thrive purchase.

This bed makes the entire room look more attractive. I can't say enough about the quality and style of this bed. The only hard part was finding a comforter/quilt that matches the cool factor of the bed. 5 stars for Thrive (again).
Chairs are amazing! They did take a little longer than expected but were well worth the wait. These chairs are large, overstuffed and super comfy. I ordered them in the Klein Atomic and they make the room. I can't recommend them enough!
This couch is gorgeous. It was delivered to me 3 days ago. I hate it. The back is stick as a rock. It's SUCH A BUMMER....cushions you sit on are fine...the BACK is rock hard....if you don't mind that, the couch looks super....but this is not a great TV couch
Just received our Nixon chair and it looks and feels even better than we could have imagined. I don't know the name of the fabric we got but I'm so glad we chose it. It appears as though you may have discontinued that particular fabric. It's a multi textured beige with golden circles. Anyhow, it looks fantastic with the rest of our furniture and really brought the room together.
When I received my Sullivan Bench I was struck by two things. First, the manner in which it was packaged told me right away this was not just any bench. It was packed as if it was a $5,000 bench. Very impressive. Second, this is a very well made bench. It can easily seat 500 lbs. worth of behinds and the upholstering is first rate. I love my fabric selection too (Cordova Eclipse). It is the perfect marriage between style (unique color, very refined) and function (wear will not show easily). My home is a mid-century modern ranch and this bench is perfect. Thanks Thrive!
This bed is beautiful (5 stars) but unfortunately I never got to use it. The problem being the base comes in one piece (1 star) so we were unable to get it to our first floor bedroom. It just wouldn't fit up the stairs and we tried many many ways of twisting and turning but it was just too big. So so disappointed as not being able to keep the bed because it was more amazing than in the photos and so well made. Thrive did an amazing thing as well when I asked for it to be returned. Nothing was too much trouble they refunded the money and then donated the bed to the salvation army. I will definately be buying more furniture from this company but checking we can get it to the room we need first :)
Yes, it took much longer to receive our couch than we were told, but I was ok with that. However, when we did in fact receive our sofa it went downhill. We have had this piece for 4 months, it already creaks, and the Klein Azure fabric, which we were assured was pet approved does not clean, at all! There are little white specs in the fabric that must be picked out by hand and the hair does not come off. The fabric is also pulling, leaving thread loops. Also, when we made the purchase, half of our payment was taken, in December, yet the other half was just taken last week, in August! Overall I am unhappy and will have to purchase a new piece of furniture within the year.
I searched high and low for a mid century modern sofa and lucky for me that I found your web site. Of course I had to get the fabric in "Lucky Turquoise". I will try and send in a photo soon. Every time I walk by my living room I just stop and stair at my sofa and it makes me smile. The quality could not be better. Its just perfect. The shipping was awesome and I paid the additional charge for having the delivery service bring it up to my 3rd floor. Glad I did. I am sure the delivery service was glad we have an elevator. My husband said that he had never seen anything wrapped so securely. Thank you Thrive employees for making us a great sofa. I am just trying to figure out what beautiful chair I am going to purchase next for my bedroom.
This is a great chair that really adds a lot to the room. Smart design and very comfortable. Durable - well constructed. Buy one - it's awesome!
It did take a lot longer to ship then it was supposed to. However, after looking for a modern sofa that wasn't outrageously priced this was perfect with lots of color options. My one complaint is about the fabric. I purchased it in Klein Azure. My house is brand new and this sofa (at the moment) gets VERY little traffic. But after a week it looked filthy. No amount of cleaning, vacuuming, or picking at it with my hands made any difference. I submitted a query about cleaning tips or a possible exchange and received no answer. Dropping that much money on a piece of furniture and then having it look dirty and worn is very disappointing. However, I tried a sweat shaver and that definitely helped. It's frustrating that the fabric balls and knots up like that but it's already in my living room so there's nothing I can do short of shipping it back. I just wanted to post this as a note to anyone considering which fabric to purchase. I DID order samples before purchasing but you don't realize this issue unless you sit on it for a few days. All in all, cool couch, good price, but I wish I had ordered a lower maintenance fabric. If exchanging it was an inexpensive option, I would.
My chair arrived yesterday and it is gorgeous! Well made, great lines. It is a most welcome change in our living room. I am looking forward to my turquoise Taylor (or is it Tyler?) chair which should be arriving soon. If you love the mid-century look, this is the real thing. It captures the true feel of the period. I know; I was there. ;)
I ordered the Tyler Sofa from the quick ship furniture - unfortunately it took longer than the 2 weeks advertised, but Thrive threw in free white glove delivery for the delay. I love the sofa! It's very comfortable, a little bit firmer than the last sofa I had, but still a very enjoyable couch to hang out on regularly. I got the Klein Azure and the color is beautiful. I was nervous about ordering a sofa I had never had the chance to sit on, but am so happy I went for it!
I purchased the Grant Sofa along with the ottoman in Brompton Brown leather and it was delivered on time. I wasn't sure what to expect, not having seen them in person, but felt reassured by the fantastic return policy. To my pleasant surprise, it was exactly what I expected. Forget the other retailers! I highly recommend buying from Thrive. It looks and feels high quality. Stitching and construction seems rock solid. I have already recommended Thrive to my mother!
I purchased the Grant Sofa in Brompton Brown leather and it was delivered on time. I wasn't sure what to expect, not having seen the sofa in person, but felt reassured by the fantastic return policy. To my pleasant surprise, it was exactly what I expected. Forget the other retailers! I highly recommend buying from Thrive. The sofa is big, but I was able to navigate it up two levels of my house with a couple friends (I didn't get the inside delivery). It looks and feels high quality. Stitching and construction seems rock solid. I have already recommended Thrive to my mother!
This couch is gorgeous, the fabric is great, the woodwork is spot on, great quality--Now, i can understand that it took 6-8 weeks for the couch to be made (I got custom fabric) Now, 2 weeks for delivery, when the couch FINALLY comes to my apartment to be delivered, the guy in the delivery truck is full of packages and says he can't find mine, leaves, and then says he might be back, or maybe he'll come back some other day (I leave on vacation the next day, so thats impossible) They had from the 5th of July to the 9th to deliver it and they chose the last day and THEN DIDN'T EVEN DELIVER MY COUCH. My advice to this company, get a different delivery service, because the one in NYC is horrible and they have no idea what they are doing--Honestly, this is going to stop me from ever ordering anything from here again. Sad, because they make great Mid century stuff.
This is an outstanding example of a Adrian Pearsall coffee table.
Love it, but ca't get the color changes to come up. want to see in purple!
My grandparents had an ottoman exactly like this in sage and so I bought one for my grandfather for father's day last year and I could not believe his face! There old one was getting all tattered and thready and this is exactly like it-- but brand new. They use it all the time. I can't believe someone is still making these! Brings back great memories.
I've been looking for something like this for a long time. I love the open space panel on the side-- three drawers are perfect for storage and the open space can be used for a linen basket or a rolled blanket, etc. It matches our existing furniture well and was a great addition to our bedroom.
Forever I've been trying to find something to go in our extra wide entry way which was basically wasted space until I discovered this cute bench! It's perfect where you need a place for the kids to sit down and take off boots, etc. The fabric is very high quality-- I expected it to be stained by the first day with my four kids using it-- but it's easy to clean and looks nice. Very happy with my purchase!
I got this bed because my old headboard basically got lost once I used my oversized box springs and pillowtop mattress. This bed, however, is high enough that you can still see the gorgeous fabric headboard. It's also low enough that when you put a thick mattress on, you don't need a ladder to climb into bed. My one suggestion is to request the sample fabrics before buying because they look different on the computer than they do when you're trying to match to a duvet cover or bedspread.
I ordered the Nixon sofa in "Cannes Dark Grey" (velvet) on the advice that velvet was relatively cat proof (which so far seems to be accurate). The sofa arrived about four weeks later and looked fantastic, but unfortunately was damaged in shipping. Fortunately Thrive was great about sending a replacement, which also arrived in about four weeks. The quality is excellent, far superior to Room and Board (I like some of their designs but was disappointed to see in the showroom that the upholstery looks cheap and the stitching is uneven). The design is also extremely comfortable , which I wondered about based on the pictures. The cushions are supportive without being squishy (hate that), and the depth works well both for me and my husband. FYI, the dimensions given on the website are incorrect: the sofa stands 32" high and is 34" deep.
We got the Taylor L sectional in Cordova Picante and it's everything we wanted. Stylish and comfortable, mcm without being over the top, so it's easy to decorate around. We couldn't be happier with our purchase. Everyone at Thrive was great, including the delivery people. We're looking forward to our next purchase.
This chair looks fantastic and while it's comfortable, I would have preferred to have a version with arms. Also, the cushion tends to slip a little and move around on the polished wood. It'd be better if it came with a velcro back to secure it. The cushion itself is very comfortable though. As far as it's best feature... the way it looks. The styling and quality are unsurpassed. Fix the other little problems and you'll get a perfect score from me.
I love love love this table. It looks absolutely beautiful in him dining room and is easy to keep clean. Everyone who sees it comments about how interesting it is and how much they love it. My only suggestion is to offer kitchen chairs in the same style as the base. The ones I have look okay but the table really puts them to shame.
I bought two of these for side tables in my small-ish living room and love them. They're easy to move around when you want to use them to eat on and they're very high quality. One came with a tiny nick that happened in shipping and the company sent out a replacement the same day. Very happy with this purchase and with Thrive in general.
This sofa may be simple but it's comfortable and very well made. I was impressed by the quality of the craftsmanship as well as the fabric choices. Not the best sofa to lounge or sleep on I'd say, but great for a living room or sitting room and fits three people very comfortably.
From the very beginning we were impressed with the customer service at Thrive. Upon placement of our order, we were a bit nervous to purchase a large item on-line, but all of our fears were eliminated when our sofa arrived. It is lovely, well made and very comfortable. We plan to purchase more items from Thrive. It is rare that I am happy with everything about a company. Thrive has integrity, as demonstrated through their return policy, they offer a well made (and American made) product that is beautifully crafted, and the service is refreshing! Thank you Thrive for getting it right!
We wanted to go funky and we did! We got this sectional in flare palladium and we love the look! It's very unique and really makes a bold statement. The fabric is nice quality too.
i just want to respond to the guy who was upset about the delivery charge. i haven't bought this sofa so I can't comment on that, but white glove service is not a new thing. it says right here on the web site that if you want them to bring it inside, it's extra. plus, $175 total for shipping is still less than what most companies that don't have free shipping charge for shipping a couch. i'm just saying...
It's not bad, but not great. I thought this couch would be more comfortable than it is. The back cushions are pretty thin and the bottom cushions are more firm than they appear in the picture. I wouldn't suggest asking anyone to sleep on this. It's just not the right couch for sleepover guests.
I don't usually write reviews but I had to share this. The other day, I came into the living room and my 2 year old son was curled up in a ball sleeping on the ottoman. I had originally left him on the sofa where I thought he was going to sleep but apparently the ottoman is more comfortable! LOL!
It took me forever to decide between this one and the Nixon sofa but I chose this one and I'm glad I did. It looks classic and beautiful and changed the look of my entire room. If I ever buy another couch-- and I hope I never need to!-- I will come back to Thrive and get one.
Ordered the Madison in the Cordoba Picante. It arrived Thursday and it is fantastic. It's hard to get a sense of it from the angles of the photos, but it is a deep wide chair, almost a chair and a half. Fits one human and one [big] cat! It's a great curl-up-and-read-a-book chair. The colors on line are a pretty good match to the actual chair - I love the fabric and color. The customer service at Thrive is terrific. Ray overnighted sample swatches, Calvin (who I talked to about three times) was very helpful (and funny). It did take longer than six weeks to get the chair, but it was worth the wait. Good job Thrive!
Interesting looking, good quality, nice fabric. All words taht describe my new sofa. Looks very nice in my place and so do the accent chairs I bought at the same time. Thank you, Thrive. You'll be hearing from me again when we redecorate our bedroom!
This was a bit more than we wanted to spend but it was so worth it! Beautiful sofa and the quality is good so we know it will last for a long time. I do recommend getting the white glove service though. It's worth it so that they actually bring it in and put it where you want. This thing is HEAVY.
I just had to laugh because the web page mentions it's the perfect sofa for Palm Springs and that's exactly where we live! Turns out, it was the perfect sofa too. We could not be happier with the comfort and durability. Gorgeous fabric too. Very well made.
Let me 1st take a moment to say that it took 11 weeks to get here as opposed to the approximate 4 weeks plus shipping. However I am very, very pleased with the product. It is sleek yet very long, the craftmanship is gorgeous, it's comfortable and fits my style and space perfectly. I might add that it was a cince to move into my 2nd floor apartment. It took my girlfriend and I 10 minutes. Keep up the good work!
I'm sick of companies saying shipping is free just so they can charge you an extra $175 to have the delivery guys bring the sofa inside instead of dumping it off in front of your house. Who isn't going to want them to bring it inside??? They certainly weren't charging you that kind of money to walk an extra 20 feet back in the 1950s.
Love it. I chose the cordovan eclipse fabric and I absolutely love it I gave four stars because I am concerned about the shape holding up but I do love everything about the couch. The metal legs are also finished very nicely.
I'm shocked at how nice this bed is. I figured for the price, it would be cheaply made but it's not at all. It's actually very high quality. I'm impressed. And I'm even more impressed it was made in the USA. Just goes to show that good quality, affordable things CAN be made here.
Wow, this sofa is just beautiful and the craftmanship shows with every stich. I must say this was a very wise purchase. If your wondering about place an order, just do it.
We purchased this for the reception area of our office and could not be more pleased with how it looks. Very classy and well made.
Probably the best purchase I've made all year. This is not something you'll find at a regular furniture store. The style is awesome and it arrived right on time. I love this sofa! Thank you ! thank you! thank you!
This sofa looks even better in person than it did on your site. We love the soft leather and we've gotten so many compliments on it since we bought it. You guys are great! Thanks for selling a GOOD American-made product!
This is a beautiful desk. It's the perfect size for compact spaces and still gives ample storage space and writing space. It arrived on time and without a scratch. It's easy to see why Thrive offers the guarantee they do, I can't imagine anyone not being happy with a purchase like this. It's the highest quality piece of furniture I own! Thank you, Thrive!
Gorgeous ottoman that looks perfect in our colonial style home. Very cozy and comfortable. For the price, I was stunned. This rivals anything I've seen at Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel. We'd love to buy throw pillows in the same fabric for the sofa if possible.
Sofa arrived right on time and looks beautiful in my home! I highly suggest getting color swatches before ordering because I noticed the colors look different on my computer than they did in person. Well made sofa. Could not be happier!
We recently finished our basement and turned it into a den and the area is small so we had a tough time finding a comfy couch that would fit. This is perfect! It fits well and still accommodates all the kids when watching t.v. The chaise is great for sleepovers too-- two kids can sleep on the same sectional. We are very happy with the quality and customer service we received when ordering. Thank you. ~CG
I have had this couch for about 5 months now, and it is very comfortable. But the fabric is not holding up well, it snags very easy leaving loose strings everywhere. The look of the couch is nice it has a more of a "puffy" look, but that's what makes it so comfortable. I would buy this couch again but not in the same fabric.
The product itself is great and the choice of fabrics is also terrific but if you are trying to decide between the love seat and the full-sized sofa, you will be happier with the sofa. This is small. It looks small and feels small in our room. I wish we'd purchased the sofa instead, but perhaps we will in the future and then move this one into our son's bedroom once he leaves for college.
We originally looked at buying the Maxwells from know furniture store when I stumbled on the Thrive website. After talking to person at Thrive and getting a really good explanation of what the differences were between the two company's product we pulled the trigger and ordered two of sofas. We took delivery of 2 Grant 96 inch sofa's early March '12, although it took a little longer to receive then quoted, it's easily forgiven when your getting a hand made, local (Californian made) high quality product. I am simply amazed at the workmanship and detail of the sofa's. Delivery was a touch scary as there was only one guy and his truck, considering these things weight close to 200lbs it took a more than a little effort to get these into the house the delivery guy was nice enough and professional. I will say that the sofa's were very well protected fully wrapped in cardboard/plastic sheeting. Once in the house and unwrapped and inspected, there was no visible damage or quality issues. Like most new products there is a packaging smell that goes after a few days, nothing more than leaving the room to air out. You can feel the quality of the leather used, it will take a while to break these in but we could not be happier with them. At 8ft long and almost 4ft wide they are super comfortable, our friends and family are stunned when they see them and they are a great talking point.
I got this for the really small guest room and it works wonderfully. Good amount of space and the stain is beautiful. My only complaint is that it took 10 days longer to arrive than it was supposed to. I wanted to have it in time for my guests who were staying with me but, it arrived after they left.
Got this in Klein Atomic to go with the Tyler sofa which I bought in Citrus. What a gorgeous combination. Bright and cheery. Plus, the ottoman is comfortable and doesn't take up too much space. Love this outfit!
I've fallen asleep on it three nights now since we got it. We love this couch and the leather is perfect for our two cats and two dogs as it doesn't catch their fur as much as fabric does. Great company to work with too. No problems at all.
I wanted to leave a review on my experience getting the kennedy chair: Order Process: My purchase experience was smooth. Got my questions answered by friendly and highly knowledgeable people. You can tell by the conversations that they actually know what they are talking about! I was a bit angry that I had to wait 6 weeks to get the chair. But holy crap when the product finally arrived I completely forgot about the long wait and it felt like it was all worth it. Product: You can just tell at first sight that this was VERY HIGH QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP. Anyone who comes over the house instantly gravitates to this baby. It is the absolute best show piece of my living room. I can't find a single thing I would change about this product! Bravo. Overall - I would give the entire process 4.5-stars. If I would have received my chair a little sooner it would have been a 5 since the product is SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!!
We ordered the Jefferson Sofa, http://www.thrivefurniture.com/living-room-furniture/seating/jefferson-sofa/ and the Arthur Chair, http://www.thrivefurniture.com/living-room-furniture/seating/arthur-chair/... My wife found Thrive online, we called and got fabric samples, they seem to be friendly and very helpful so we ordered. When the furniture came I could not believe how beautifully it was protected. It took me and hour to remove all the plastic, cardboard, bubble wrap, paper, and shrink wrap, wow! What an amazing packaging job. When I finally got to the furniture, it was perfect... really beautiful! I could not be happier and will buy from them again, probably many times... Im a fan.
FINALLY received the sofa, 11 weeks after ordering it. It's great, but keep a few things in mind. It "reads" larger than the dimensions seem to indicate. The seat is very deep, and the stuffing is very firm. It came without the legs attached, and one leg in particular went in a little crookedly. The welting on the back is ever-so-slightly off kilter in one spot, which I hope I can remedy by gently pushing and pulling it into place. The fabric is very lush and matches the swatch exactly and the fabrication seems to be well done with the exceptions noted. Customer service regarding delivery time was hit-and-miss, probably because Thrive seems to be growing quickly. Not one email was ever returned, and I had to call several times before reaching someone. When I did, they were very nice and sent additional swatches when they discovered the fabric I chose was back ordered. And there was a delay in receiving the sofa, even with the revised date from the back-ordered fabric. However, they did not charge my credit card until the order was fulfilled and it was on its way. Once it was shipped, it only took six days for the sofa to be delivered.
Just received the Fillmore in Granite Klein. Have been searching for a sofa of this style. We were between the Petrie from Crate and Barrel and the Wells from Room and Board. Thankfully we discovered Thrive! Made in the US, eco friendly, free shipping (huge for us as we live in the middle of nowhere), plus uber beautiful style. Hesitated at first going out on a limb with such a new company but the risk paid off. We love our new piece of furniture! It anchors our mid-century themed room and is exceptionally constructed and comfortable. Do it! Order your piece from Thrive today because I want them to be around forever. Sidenote: It took six weeks for piece to arrive but well worth the wait.
Let me be fair by saying first that the sofa is terrific. It's very high quality, looks great, not disappointing in any way. BUT, we live in an apartment and the sofa arrived while my wife was home alone and they were going to drop it off in front of the building and wanted HER to lug it up the stairs by herself unless she paid more for white glove service. I wasn't happy with the hidden fee. I mean, who is going to want to carry the sofa upstairs by themselves? I would rather they make you pay for shipping and get it into your home than to act like shipping is free and then deal with these problems at the time the sofa arrives.
We love that 1950s look and decided to buy this for our living room with a couple of chairs, and we think it looks terrific. Very comfortable too! My dog insists on getting up on it even though he's not allowed on furniture!
I realize this is a bit more expensive than some furniture retailers (believe me, I shopped around alot before buying), but I have to say, I think it's worth the price. I got this for my loft which is pretty small and it reallyl is perfect. The right size for a small room and still comfortable enough to enjoy.
Just purchased and recieved the Grant Sofa in Brompton Brown Leather and it is top notch. Don’t waste your money on the Maxwell sofa. I have spent a lot of time sitting on the Maxwell and I can assure you this sofa from Thrive is just as good. I would reccomend to anyone.
I was hoping to read more reviews on this Sofa before I purchased so I feel it's necessary to provide feedback on the outstanding quality. I have had the sofa for two weeks and I can't imagine it being any better. I would reccomend not wasting your money on the similar sofa from the competition as this sofa is as comfortable as it is beautiful.
So.... I just received my Kennedy chair and all I can say is WOW. The finishing on the frame is outstanding. The Omega fabric looks sexy on this...thinking of buying another one
I absolutely love my new sofa & chair!! They look exactly like the picture online and they are extremely comfy. The customer service provided was outstanding and I would highly recommend Thrive to all of my friends.
Upon delivery, I noticed that the frame of the sofa was damaged -- probably occurred during transport. I sent the sofa back and was immediately contacted by the company. They were very helpful and kept me updated while the frame was replaced. The sofa was re-shipped at no cost to me. Though it was unfortunate that it was initially damaged, the product has high quality and I received great customer service. An architect friend of mine commented that he thought it was a very expensive sofa (then I told him I got a great deal!!!).
We love our Grant Sofa. I felt like I was taking a chance with a company I was not familiar with. The sofa is excellent quality and the customer service was superb (aside from a slight delay in shipping.) I highly recommend Thrive.
Our Sullivan Sofa arrived yesterday and we love it! Josh at Thrive promptly answered any questions we had during the order process. The sofa is extremely well made and designed with beautiful lines, is very comfortable, and looks great in our living room. Thank you so much! We would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking to buy a sofa.
Just received our Tyler sofa, and we LOVE IT...The linen fabric looks better in person and the round legs are a great accent. Very pleased and it showed up in 2 weeks!!!! Excellent service!
We loved our sofa when we first got it but quickly noticed that one of the buttons wasn't sewn properly. We called the company and they offered to quick-ship a new back cushion allowing us to keep the bad one until it arrived which was terrific customer service, but I would have preferred to have just had a perfect sofa delivered in the first place. Because of how they handled the problem, I will buy from them again though.
