by dlhartman Overall, a great buy
In our quest for a sofa that would meet my aesthetic guidelines, my husband's comfort standards and stand up to the durability test sure to be administered by our three young children and a dog, I admit we were coming up dry. It seemed like everything we looked at failed someone's expectations. Not stylish enough, not comfy enough, too weak to handle three kids jumping on it, etc.
I first came across this 108" signature sofa last October (2013) and was immediately smitten BUT without the ability to see it in person and test it out, we simply weren't willing to purchase it. (It is after all, quite expensive!) We continued to look elsewhere but still came up dry.
Fast forward a few months and our local JCP underwent some remodeling and debuted a furniture shop on the top floor! And low and behold, this sofa was there for the testing! My hubby was out of town on business, but my kiddos and I tested it out and I was sold! I went home, Skyped with the hubby and planned to take him back to the store to try it out himself when he got home. Well, it didn't last that long! A few weeks later, the floor model had been sold! Thankfully, they still had the matching chair, which my hubby fell in love with so we went ahead and waited until JCP was having a one day only 50% off furniture online sale and ordered it for half off!
The only thing I don't like is that I didn't lift up the cushions or anything in the store, which would've revealed to me that it was not in fact 100% leather as claimed. The underside of the cushions are fabric, not leather. I had been hoping to flip them if they got too worn on one side so this was a disappointment but probably not something that would've negated our purchase. Also, the first one that was delivered had a large, 12 in. gash on the back. Looked like someone had accidentally gotten it with a box cutter. So, make sure you thoroughly inspect it before the delivery guys leave. I called JCP while they were still here and they said they'd have a new one delivered and I could use the defective one in the meantime! That was awesome because we had already gotten rid of our old sofa.
This sofa is extra long for additional seating - something that was important to us. It is very well made, sturdy and durable. We have now owned it for five months and after daily heavy use by my children and my dog, it still looks new! That's not even an exaggeration. Scuffs are easily buffed out with your fingers if you want but the sofa is made to look a bit worn so I don't worry about it. I love that our family of five can all sit on the sofa comfortably and my hubby can take his afternoon naps fully stretched out. The color is beautiful, more of a reddish brown than a straight brown, but I don't mind.
Overall, this was a great buy and I have no doubt that this sofa will last our family at least a decade, which makes it well worth the price (granted, we got it half off). I would highly recommend it to anyone. In fact, I have seen this same sofa sold at some very high end furniture retailers online and it's no wonder. This sofa definitely has a high end feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsEF Definitely has a red tint
We liked this couch in the store but were hesitant to spend so much money on furniture our dog likely will destroy. We bought it when it was briefly listed at a close out price. It is very long, but it isn't bulky and doesn't overpower our living room. The leather is the kind that shows scratches, which is part of its charm. The delivery team was very courteous, worked quickly, and agreed to bring it in through our back door. This was a great value. We will definitely buy furniture from JCPenney again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nw2shop Designer look for a fraction of the cost
I love this sofa! It's beautiful, great leather smell, and huge! This is a 9 ft sofa. It's substantial in size. Perfect for an oversized room. I got it for an amazing price online during one of their sales. The color was a bit reddish than expected but for the price, it's a non-issue. Please note however that the backs of the cushions are fabric so they are not reversible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyLawyer JCP got it right! The 108" Signature Sofa is worth it!
I usually do not post reviews on products that I buy, but the 108" Signature Sofa was definitely worth mentioning! When I first came across the Signature Sofa back in November 2013, I could not believe that my search for a high quality leather sofa was right there at JCP! The look, quality, craftsmanship and aesthetics of the sofa clearly separated it from the pack. Knowing that it would not be carried by JCP indefinitely, I waited for the Memorial Day sale and purchased both the 108" and the 84" Signature Sofas. I could not have been happier! Well worth the money and it's nice to know that I have furniture pieces not seen in the average home. The sofas really do add style and class to whatever room you place them in!
