Designed by Welsh designer Bethan Gray, Pennie offers great style and fine craftsmanship at an amazing price. Sleek and inviting curves extend a plush, padded welcome, perfectly scaled for smaller spaces or first-time apartments. Textured basketweave upholstery hugs every turn of the graceful tight back and seat in warm cornflower blue, perfectly complemented by a pair of slender kidney pillows. Tapered dowel legs are made of solid white oak and finished in clear lacquer. Bethan Gray was recently named Best British Designer by the 2013 British Design Awards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveLA from Great sofa for a small apartment.Fits three comfortably, but you'll need accent pillows if you like to lean back and you don't have long legs. It has a firm, but comfortable base, if you like to lay down. The fabric is darker than the image on the web site. If you have a living room with dark furniture, this sofa is a accents well.Please make sure that you inspect your furniture. There was a tear on the underside of the sofa, but C&B was very professional and replaced the sofa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dougie7302 from Beautiful and comfortable sofaI purchased this couch in cornflower blue, and it was delivered last week. Between the color and the clean lines, I think it is probably the best couch I ever purchased. Not only is it beautiful, it is also extremely comfortable. It sits three comfortably, and the seats are deep, inviting to embellish it with your favorite accent pillows. My living room is a rather eclectic style that blends a few traditional pieces with modern. This sets a great tone for the whole room. I could see it working with a wide variety of decors. It is not generic at all, however, the sleek lines from not having divided seat / back cushions and the color make it distinctive, but unobtrusive. I get tons of compliments. This is a full-sized sofa, that isn't limited to small apartments; it works well in my normal sized home. The feeling it projects is clean and uncluttered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rebecca from Lovely couchThis is a well-scaled sofa, with deep seating and a good firmness. The cornflower blue is a surprising neutral and looks lovely with taupe walls.2 caveats - the cushions are so floppy, they might as well be tube socks stuffed with cotton balls. I'll be re-stuffing them. And the off-gas smell that came off this couch (and matching chair) was HORRENDOUS. As in, made my eyes water and my face itch. I don't know if it's flame retardants or the fabric dye, but whoosh, 2 weeks later and I can still smell it.I do have to say, I have to laugh every time I read the description - that it's perfect for "first time apartments". Really? That's rather insulting to those of us long-time homeowners...

Rated 5 out of 5 by jackie27 from Perfect for an apartment!I bought this sofa for a small apartment living room because of its clean lines and slim legs. It's looks fantastic and keeps the room looking open and not cramped. It's a firm couch, so if you prefer to sink into your sofa, this is not the one for you. It is also a little deeper than a normal sofa, which makes it great for naps, but if you are short, your feet won't reach the ground when you're seated all the way back. I bought it in the charcoal, which does look like the photo (not darker or lighter). Fits great, so happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by itsybitsybetsy from Perfect addition to my hearth roomI have spent almost two years looking for the perfect-sized sofa for a small family room off my kitchen. The Pennie Sofa is great because the linen look is the perfect complement to my oak floors and the beachy/coastal look of the room. But it is nicely tailored, firm and modern, which makes it coordinate well with the decor of the rest of my house, and it's reasonably priced. Its body is low profile enough not to block the view of the fireplace from adjoining rooms. I'm extremely happy with my purchase -- my only regret is waiting so long to buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sabamutti from Perfect size for small space.Looks wonderful--the defining piece in the living room. Very comfortable & well made. Looks more expensive. Can't use water-based products so I can't scotch guard it, but that more of an adjustment than a problem.
