At A Glance: Gus Modern is known for their mid-century modern inspired designs, and the Richmond Sofa represents a bit of a departure from that style. This is a couch for those who like comfort - not just comfort in the seat but also a comfortable-looking sofa. Wood block feet give this three-seat sofa a stable base and a solid appearance, and French seams finish the chair's upholstery nicely.
What's To Like:
The Richmond Sofa is a perfect distillation of the "overstuffed" furniture style. Not hyperbolic in any sense, this sofa is easy on the eyes and on the posterior.
French seams do more than hold the upholstery together; they're also a sign of great attention to detail. This sofa is well made.
Narrow armrests shrink this sofa's footprint, giving you more space to move around it.
What's Not to Like: The Richmond Sofa's price tag reflects its quality, but it may be high for some.
The Bottom Line: The Richmond Sofa offers Gus Modern fans a more traditional approach to living room seating. A thick, down-filled seat cushion with narrow armrests makes this sofa an excellent lounging option.
