after months of searching for a mid-century style couch that would be comfortable + stylish, we decided to purchase this couch. Im so happy we did! It is VERY comfortable and works well with our decor.
The color is more blue than is pictured, but overall we are very happy!

by Francois75 great style and price
I purchased the Darrin sofa after doing much research on couches. Even though, I have never bought a couch without seeing or trying it before, I went ahead and ordered my sofa trough JC Penney. My order ended up being on back order but it was delivered ahead of the scheduled date.
The sofa is exactly what I was expecting - clean lines, nice fabric, great color, comfort. It was by far the most inexpensive couch compared to the other models I looked at in stores and on line. I am delighted with my purchase. The only negative remark I would make is that the fabric easily picks up my white dog's hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimPW Great mid century style sofa
We searched high and low for this style sofa and are are lucky enough to live close to a JCP furniture store. A few weekends ago we went to view it in person and were very torn between the fabric and leather options. I definitely agree with the other comment that the sofa is NOT graphite. It is without a doubt blue. And while the leather was amazingly soft and beautiful (and smelled great), it was a little too shiny and slippery for us (throw pillows wouldn't even stand up on the leather it was so slick). So after much deliberation, we ordered the fabric option and it was delivered within a week. Make sure you measure and mark out the footprint of this sofa though, it really is big and quite deep (good for napping). It's easily big enough for 4 people to sit on, but if you are short like me, you'll want some pillows available for behind your back. It's quite comfortable and will probably soften even more with continued use. Bottom line: if you're expecting a grey couch you'll be disappointed, but as blues go, it's a nice one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigalicenyc JC Penny: The Best Surprise of 2013!
My husband and I happened to be at our local mall waiting for something and wandered into JC Penney to look for bedroom pillows--I saw the "Darrin" sofa on display and commented on how much I liked it. Instantly, a salesperson came by, told us of the sale and free shipping and an hour later we had not only purchased the sofa but lamps, bedding and linens. I have to say I was and have been blown away by the quality-value and exemplary customer service.
We LOVE our sofa. It is beautiful, comfortable and such a great price for this kind of quality. I had been considering two to three times as much money for the same expectation. Plus, every interaction with JCP re: delivery, and follow-up on service has been amazing. I have been telling all of our friends to go to JCP: it is not the store of 5 yrs. ago and that they have done a great job with their customer service.
A friend who was over for a holiday party just told me that he and his wife went home and purchased the same sofa--the best compliment!
I wish all our purchase interactions were as enchanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by readymade Love my new (ink blue) sofa!
I found this couch on super sale at JCP.com. I was scared to buy a couch sight unseen, but all the good reviews and the insane price had me saying 'why not?' I saw in other reviews that the couch was blue as opposed to gray, and that actually worked for me, design-wise. It's definitely a dark, midnighty, inky blue, NOT GRAY. I love the color. It's comfortable and very nice for the price. The only thing I can't really speak to is the durability, because I've had it less than a week, but the fabric is a thick and woven and seems durable. Delivery was fast and efficient. The only (small) issue I have is that it's kind of a low profile sofa. The back of my old couch was really high, so it just looks a little weird to me to have such a low profile couch. Anyway, I am so happy with my new sofa. Buy it on sale and you won't regret it! Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kmharvey Great Look, Solid Sofa
This is a great sofa for the price. The fabric is nice and the color is representative of what I saw online. The delivery was quick and efficient. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase. Two things I would mention: the cushions are a combination of foam and duck feather. The feathers actually come out of the fabric... a lot. They just poke through and stick out. And because the fabric is so dark and the feathers white, they show up pretty badly. It needs a lot of vacuuming. I'm hoping this is just something that will happen in the beginning and will eventually stop. The other issue is that the sofa definitely needs some off-gassing time. It has a pretty chemical smell (not horrible but noticeable). Be prepared to leave windows open for the first week or so - just until the smell fades.

i ordered this sofa during JCPenny's black friday/cyber monday sale. I got a good deal on it. I wasn't sure about the quality of the sofa since the local jcpenny did not have a floor model to look at.
delivery came as scheduled with a phone call giving me a 3 hour window to work with. delivery guys were courteous and careful not to damage the house when they installed the furniture and even wore covers over the shoes as requested.
now on to the furniture. my biggest complaint with the sofa are the legs. it has 6 legs (four on each corner and 2 down the middle). The 2 middle legs are 1/2 inch shorter than the other legs!!! that might be a problem if there is too much weight on the sofa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MidCenturyFan Great looking couch, even better price
After searching just about EVERY site for an attractive mid-century modern style couch the wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg, I found the Darrin Fabric Sofa. The price matched couches from CB2 and West Elm, but I believe the quality far surpasses either retailer. This fabric is a lovely color. It really is more of a deep blue gray ink rather than gray ink. I have a black dog and the fabric still hides her fur nicely. A lot of mid century style sofas you can't really sink in to and lounge comfortably. This sofa has that going for it. It is a nice length and depth. Overall, I'm extremely happy with my purchase.
