Simpli Home Reviews: The Morrison Leather Sofa Product Review

A tech dad in Burbank, CA, found the perfect fit with Simpli Home's leather sofa for his office and kids, praising its comfort and craftsmanship.

I needed a smaller couch or loveseat for my office space, as a place to sit down and take a breather and for my kids to use to read and do their homework, etc. I got connected with Simpli Home and ordered a great leather sofa that fit the exact measurements I was looking for. For me, the former founder of an e-commerce furniture company who has sold a few hundred thousand couches to people sight unseen, I've never actually bought one sight unseen! I've never had to! I was nervous. What I ended up getting was so much better than I expected, I felt compelled to tell all of you about it.

Unboxing and First Impressions: A Date with The Morrison Sofa 72"

The day had arrived, much like a long-awaited second date, but with a piece of furniture—The Morrison Sofa 72" from Simpli Home. The excitement was palpable; after all, it's not every day you get to meet a potential new best friend for your living space.

Our new companion made its grand entrance, wrapped in what seemed like a tuxedo of packaging. Not a dent, not a scratch, just pure, unadulterated sofa goodness waiting to be unveiled. It's like the packaging folks at Simpli Home know that first impressions matter. And boy, did they deliver!

We had the spot all picked out, a cozy nook that seemed as if it was crafted just for this moment. As we sliced through the packaging, the anticipation built up. Was it going to be the perfect fit we'd dreamt of?

One of the first things I noticed was the base. The often-overlooked foundation can make or break your lounging experience. Our new Morrison didn't just come with any foundation—it came with a nice wood base, complete with a center support leg. It's like finding out your blind date is not only attractive but also has a PhD in Comfort Engineering.

Simpli Home Reviews: Leg Day

After Wilder and I disposed of all the packaging (tossed it outside to the backyard), Wilder found the box of leg hardware. Attaching the legs, we felt like surgeons performing a critical operation. I could tell right away that they were not just any legs; they were the kind that screamed high quality. Sturdy, solid and very well stained. And all of the hardware and fittings were pre-drilled and easy to assemble.

Simpli Home Review: The Moment of Truth

And then, the moment we'd all been waiting for—time to take the our brand new Morrison Leather Sofa for a test drive. Sitting down, we were greeted with a depth of seat that was just right. Not too shallow that you're perching, not so deep that you need a lifeline to get up. The cushions? Like a firm handshake from an old friend, reassuring and comfortable.

Not too shallow that you're perching, not so deep that you need a lifeline to get up. The cushions? Like a firm handshake from an old friend, reassuring and comfortable. 

Wilder, our official sofa tester (and part-time 6 year old), gave his seal of approval with a jump that was both daring and a testament to the sofa's sturdiness. Needless to say he put all those gymnastics sessions to good use. The bolster cushions, a.k.a. the facilitators of nap time, provided the perfect nook for a weary head.

In a world of sofas, The Morrison stands out—not just as a piece of furniture, but as a companion for those movie nights, heart-to-heart chats, and yes, even the occasional nap. Never on a work day though... ok maybe once or twice.

Simpli Home Product Review: A Deep Dive into The Morrison's Comfort and Craftsmanship

When you first sink into The Morrison, it's clear that this isn't just another piece of furniture—it's crafted with meticulous attention to detail. From the substantial feel of the cushions to the robust support system beneath, every aspect has been thoughtfully designed for optimal comfort and lasting durability.

The seat depth is immediately noticeable, offering a generous space to lounge without feeling lost in the sofa. It's a delicate balance, achieved with precision, allowing for a comfortable sit whether you're 5'11" like me or have a different stature. The cushions, they don't just cradle you; they provide a firm yet plush embrace, ensuring that comfort is paramount without compromising on support.

Simpli Home Product Review: The Touch of Leather

Touching the material, you can sense the leather's quality and resilience. This isn't the overly soft, delicate kind of leather that fears daily life. Instead, it's robust, ready to face the rigors of everyday use while aging gracefully. The texture, the natural markings, speak to its authenticity and add a unique character, ensuring that your Morrison isn't just a sofa, but a one-of-a-kind piece.

Then there's the thoughtful touch of bolster cushions. These aren't just decorative; they're functional, offering extra support wherever you need it. Whether it's additional lumbar support or a soft landing for an afternoon nap, these cushions adapt to your needs, enhancing the Morrison's comfort quotient.

Let's not forget about the legs and the base—the unsung heroes of sofa stability. The Morrison stands firm on high-quality legs, complete with a center support leg, a feature not always seen but always appreciated, especially in a sofa of this size. And the wood base? It extends across the front and sides, not just an aesthetic touch but a testament to the sofa's solid construction.

In conclusion, The Morrison Sofa from Simpli Home isn't just a piece of furniture; it's a companion for your living space, designed to offer comfort, durability, and style for years to come. Whether you're lounging, entertaining, or just enjoying a quiet moment, The Morrison 72" Sofa is proving that good design is not just seen but felt.
