Inside Weather Reviews
I am simply *obsessed* with my Inside Weather couch. After researching couches for months, I decided to take a chance on the Bondi sofa from IW for a few reasons: The modular design makes the couch incredibly versatile and since we are renting, I like the option of having something that could be changed to fit different spaces if we move. The fabric doesn't hang onto pet hair, and the couches themselves looked comfy! I've had my couch for 5 months now and I can confidently say it's the best piece of furniture I own. I went with the memory foam cushions and they are cuddly but retain their shape, my dog's hair doesn't get stuck on the fabric and the wood detail looks so good in my living room. My only complaint is that there was a bit of an issue with the quality control of some of the wood pieces. One of the couch backs had an issue with the staining flaking off, but I sent a video to customer support and they were able to send a replacement piece.
One star because I do appreciate the attractive, modular, deconstruct-able base of my aero sectional but otherwise it's a NO. The quality of the cushion covers is abysmal. Not only did they arrive with excessive loose threads, but the zipper on one of them broke almost immediately, in addition to the busted corner seam on another cushion. I contacted customer service for replacements, which they refused, invited me to purchase new covers and then ghosted me. Even worse (and why we need places like Thingtesting!), they 100% delete all negative reviews off their website / don't even post them. I left a review that never made it to the site, and, now that I look with a more critical eye, I notice that there isn't a single non-glowing, five-star review. Shameful and deceitful behavior. Lastly, it's not even that comfortable. They need to add ties or snaps or something to affix the cushions to the base, as they are constantly sliding off. I even hurt myself once sitting on the edge of a cushion that had slid forward, and I fell flat on the floor. If you can get them to provide you with non-ripped cushions and overlook their shady review management, it is a good apartment/city couch since it does easily break fully down and can fit in a box.
I have been searching for months for a new couch. I read all of these positive reviews of inside weather and had to travel to the only "showroom" in NYC to try it (1 couch). It was not what I was expecting. It is supposed to be comparable to Restoration Hardware but nowhere ear as soft and comfortable. Ii cannot say whether or not it would last but if you are looking for a cheaper version of RH that is just as comfortable, I would skip this.
