The PotatoMeter is Couch.com’s very own rating system that grades furniture retailers on a variety of – what we consider to be – essential criteria. While we aim to be fair and objective in our assessment, subjectivity based on our expertise and personal biases is unavoidable.
Apt2B’s website is clean, attractive, and informative but it can also run slowly and be a bit overwhelming to navigate. Apt2B says on their website, “Buying furniture online sight unseen can be scary. We know that but we’re devoted to making the process easy and efficient so you can click ‘add to cart’ with confidence.” Let’s find out whether or not it’s as easy and efficient as claimed.
Ease of Navigation

Quality of Product Information
Extra Bells & Whistles
Apt2B actually has incredible lead times compared to similar brands. Having their factory located in downtown Los Angeles really helps cut down on manufacturing time. Plus they have a variety of ready-to-ship options, though most of these are from their “exclusive import” collection (aka not made in the USA).

Our goal at Couch.com is to provide customers with the information they need to find the best couch for their home. We take customer satisfaction very seriously. So how does Apt2B stack up to the competition when it comes to customer friendly resources and offerings?
Delivery Options & Costs:
Is Assembly Required?
Founders Mat Herman and Alex Back say, “What’s made Apt2B be so different and unique is our commitment to staying small and boutique in our look, feel, and personalization.” Does that hold true for their actual customization options?
Does Apt2B Offer Free Fabric Swatches?
Durability is a major factor when it comes to purchasing a couch, especially when you’re ordering online. So do Apt2B couches hold up over time? The short answer is “yes,” but only if we’re talking about their made in the USA line. If that were the only option on their site, I’d raise the overall rating. But the uncertain quality of their “exclusive import” collection weighs them down.
Couch Potato Note: If an Apt2B couch only has a couple of fabric options listed then it’s one of their “exclusive import” options. If it has dozens of fabric options to choose from then it’s one of their made in the USA couches. That’s an easy way to tell them apart.
Quality of Materials:
Vibing with a brand is important. Brands can also promote certain lifestyles and sustainability goals. That’s why it’s my goal to help you find a company and brand that you vibe with so that you’re as comfortable with your new couch as you are on your new couch.

Couch That Intrigues Me The Most:
Apt2B is a decidedly mid-range option when it comes to couches. Their main offerings fall right in that $1,800 – $3,000 sweet spot for 3-seater sofas. But you can easily spend a lot of money if you opt for their larger sectionals, modulars, or sleeper sofas.
Couch Potato Note: You should always buy from Apt2B when they’re on sale versus full retail price (and they’re almost always on sale so you never have to wait long).
