Review of the Signature Design by Ashley Darcy Sofa
One of our favorite couches under $500 is the Signature Design by Ashley Darcy Sofa, which comes in a variety of “stone” colors – all fabric: Café, Cobblestone, Salsa, Mocha, Sage, and Stone. This price for this couch ranges from $425 to $490, and is much loved by customers looking for a compromise between style and affordability. For its price-tag, this couch is still very stylish and features a contemporary design with plush upholstered arms, pillow back fixed cushions (that are attached to the couch), and a beautiful suede upholstery completely covering the frame.
An Affordable Couch and Loveseat Set for All Families and Couples
The couch’s dimensions are: 90 x 39 x 40 inches (width x depth x height), and it weighs 126.2 pounds. Made in the USA, the Ashley Darcy Signature was first made available to consumers on July 26, 2005. The fact that this couch is still so popular speaks to its timeless design. Not too gaudy and yet still casual and comfortable enough for everyday use, this sofa is popular with both families and couples without children or pets.
Why we love the Ashley Darcy Sofa
Let’s talk about what’s easy with this sofa, starting with its price. At less than $500, this sofa exceeds expectations and is one of the most versatile couches you can purchase in its price range. We’ve spoken with several customers who say that even after years of normal (to even a tad more aggressive) wear and tear, the couch still looks great, and doesn’t have rips or holes. Even cats have a difficult time causing pulls in this fabric, but it’s not overly tough – and one of the most praised features of the sofa is the fabric, which has been called “so soft” and “a comfortable kind of bouncy.”
Don’t regret purchasing a couch that may look stylish, but is uncomfortable to sit on. A couch is a piece of furniture that is meant to have high traffic and use, and you shouldn’t tip toe around its daily utilization. The Ashley Darcy Sofa has sturdy back and sides, and pillow back cushions that are attached to the couch to prevent sliding and slippage, though the bottom cushions are reversible, and have an added Velcro patch to keep the “falling into the cracks” situation to a bare minimum.
Care and cleaning of this couch is also simple, and we recommend that you use mild soapy water to get out those small stains, but avoid cleaning spray or remover unless you test it on a tiny patch of the suede first.
A simple, hassle-free purchase
Not only is this sofa stylish and easy to clean, the entire process of ordering it and getting it delivered is overall painless and hassle-free. Because the sofa comes assembled, only the legs themselves need to be screwed on – which is helpful if you’re trying to fit the couch through a narrow doorway. The legs can be hand-screwed on as a last step, and if you don’t like the brown plastic legs that come with the sofa, you can always order different legs – including wooden ones – to better match your décor or personal style.
When you order from most sellers, you can arrange for this couch to be delivered to your home, which saves you a trip to the warehouse.
