John Lewis Madison Large Cushion Leather Sofa
We bought the Madison Large leather sofa along with the snuggler and footstool in leather. It looks beautiful!

We bought this about 6 months ago, but after a short while the back cushions were becoming stretched because of insufficient padding.
We've had the padding supplemented and are about to do the same thing with the seats because they too are showing sink and stretch marks.
Only one person uses this sofa, so it's not from real wear and tear.
The leather is nice, so it's a real pity that the sofa is not properly upholstered.

Looks great but wish it was more comfortable
I learned a lesson with this settee. Don't ever buy without trying but in my defence, there is no local John Lewis and I was swayed by the reviews and the pictures. This settee does look great, and we've had it now for several months. I kept hoping it would become more comfortable but it never really did. It has a fairly low back, low arms and is actually quite slippy so we end up sliding down, or lying down to get comfortable. It isn't a settee you sink into.
Others have commented on dogs not scratching the leather whereas our cat had this marked within days. I don't mind that so much (the joy of cats) but don't know why that didn't ever happen on our previous leather settee.
To be completely fair to John Lewis, their customer service is great. I had my doubts within the first month and they offered me an exchange. We looked at others but couldn't see anything else we liked, decided we were being too fussy and that it would wear in.
This is a lovely looking settee, great quality, and really comfortable to lie down on. But personally, I wish I hadn't bought it. I want a settee I can sink into so If that is what you are after, I'm not sure this is it so try before you buy.

Didn't wear too well!
We love our sofa and have had it for about 5 years now. Unfortunately one cushion in particular has had to be patched up a few times in several spots. Is it possible to purchase replacement cushion covers?

Excellent service & sofas
Large & small sofas arrived today having ordered online after seeing in shop on 28 December. Rang when 30 minutes away, delivery men noticed small mark on the small sofa and immediately offered 10% reduction - mark is on corner base so you can't even see it. Sofas look fantastic & are really comfortable. No issues at all with fixing cushions to Velcro & the 10% has already been refunded. We have had several items from John Lewis recently, lights, sofas, carpets & I can't fault either their service or the products, am exceptionally happy with both

2 years on, looking for another sofa
I bought 2 piece sofa in December 2010. Right from the onset, we had so many issues with the Velcro. The cushions are always sliding off, leaving a most uncomfortable sitting position. I wouldn't recommend the sofa to my worst enemy.

Wished i had taken the trouble to try in store.
Delivered by a great team
The quality of course is typical JL fantastic,
the only niggle is the photo makes it look so much bigger
i really wanted a sofa with "lean back cushions"to support my
head in that respect the photo is misleading,the plus side...
I have a Weimaraner dog who likes to hog one end
her paws are quite sharp but make no impression on the leather
Good quality,shame about the photo.
