Josue Sectional by Varick Gallery Review

Overview

Buying a sofa is a very personal matter. The lounge, living room, or family area of your home is the center of so many things, and everyone from friends to family, kids, relatives, and other guests come and go over time. Having the right seating arrangement, a soft, welcoming, and reliable sofa, and being able to trust your brand to bring some style, function, and ease of use to your home are key priorities. These are the things that drive most furniture purchase decisions.

If you’re looking to outfit your home with a new sofa sectional, you might want to consider the Josue sectional reviewed here.

This sectional by Varick Gallery is a sleek, comfortable, modern, and trendy piece of furniture. It comes with a chaise and is available in one color scheme. Although it is not reversible, it is available in both right-facing as well as left-facing models. It does not have a pull-out bed as some models have, and this unit has not been weight tested, but a big plus is that it does not attract a lot of hair!

If you want to get a little creative and throw in some fancy curtains, a background picture frame, a corner rocking chair, or a side coffee table to your home’s seating ensemble, you can really liven up your living area and give a fresh, new look to your living space, lounge, den, or family room with this product.

Delivering contemporary design at a great value is the driving force behind Varick Gallery. Their shoppers look for high-end style for less, and the company strives to provide a vast collection of furniture and decor that makes it easy to find the right piece for your living space, whether it is a home, an apartment, a studio, or even just the lounge, den, or living area.

Features

This is a sectional that has polyester, polyester-blend, and rayon-blend upholstery. It is no reversible but it is available in both right-facing as well as left-facing models. It is an L-shaped sectional, and it comes with one sofa and one loveseat. Built on a solid wooden frame, its seating firmness is rated as firm. It is made using low melt fiber wrapped over high-quality foam. This item comes in a single solid pattern and features removable seat cushions and removable cushion covers. The back cushions are not removable, nor are any of the cushions reversible.

The arms are track arms, and the back is made in cushion-back design. Plastic legs that are removable are included. Made in the United States, this sofa can comfortably seat three adults. It has sinuous spring seats with foam filling that provide lasting comfort and durability, and it comes with throw/toss pillows. When it is delivered, the legs are included under the unit in a zipper or Velcro pouch. Assembly is required, but the entire sectional can be set up with just a screwdriver or a small power drill (which would make things a lot easier if you have one on hand). No additional parts are required for assembly.

Before making a purchase, check the measurements of the sectional as given below against the size of the living space in which you plan to use this sofa.

Pricing

All the prices are only for reference, Exact price will be based on the latest quotation.

The Josue sectional is currently available for $939.98 (there are currently no sales or discounts on offer). However, depending on the time of year and the season, promotions and other marketing deals often kick in, so it would be a good idea to set yourself up with a reminder to make sure to check the latest price before finalizing your purchase so that you can catch any ongoing sales or lock in any deals at the exact time that you are ready to buy.

This item does not come with optional insurance, but since it is easy to clean and maintain, you will hopefully not have any issues with it. However, because the price is a substantial amount, if you really want protection and insurance, you should perhaps look at alternative sofa options.

Pros

This is a great sectional that is large and comfortable. Most people did not have any issues with delivery, which is usually on time, and is often actually early. The delivery team generally emails clients the day before delivery with the expected time frame in which they plan on delivering your unit, and they provide a number to call on to reschedule delivery in case you are unable to receive them when they plan to arrive.

The only assembly required on the sectional is attaching the feet, which may prove to be somewhat difficult because there are no pre-drilled holes for the legs to screw into. You’ll definitely want to have an electric drill to get the legs in, although it is possible to get them in using just a normal screwdriver. Overall, it’s a great purchase of substantial value, the fabric is durable and easy to clean, it comes in a nice color, is comfortable, and has sturdy construction. The seat cushions are perfectly firm and the back cushions are delightfully soft. Some people even said that they had houseguests fall asleep on the couch during movie time!

Cons

As can be expected, there are always two sides to every story, and a number of customers faced serious delivery problems. According to some purchasers, the delivery company did not communicate properly, they did not give a courtesy call as they should have, and in one case they even forgot to bring both pieces of the sofa sectional. In this particular case, when they delivered both pieces two days later, they did not call to say they were on the way, and they did not call to say that they left the sofa in the hallway of the customer’s apartment community.

This sectional may look to be of substandard quality. The fabric may not be as pictured, and may feel cheap and rough. The bottom of the cushions is black, not the same fabric as the top. The back cushions are not removable and may look as if they are stapled on, and they can pucker here and there. With plastic legs, this is a sectional that may not hold up under gentle use for more than a few months.

During delivery, there may be some product damage due to insufficient wrapping and protection of the item. Although Wayfair is always extremely helpful and apologetic, the delivery companies are sometimes to blame. Keep these issues in mind because these kinds of problems can cost you money, especially in cases where you have to rent furniture until your item arrives.

Conclusion

This is a sectional that is wide, long, deep, and looks lovely. Perfect for relaxing on after a long day at work, cozying up on for a movie, or having a houseguest sleep on, it is light, solidly constructed, easy to clean and maintain (and therefore ideal for homes with pets or small children), and comes with great customer care and customer feedback.

Ideal for first-time sofa buyers, young adults, anyone looking for a little extra comfort or style and for those who want to really enjoy their sofa instead of saving a few dollars on a bargain that isn’t worth it in the long run, the Josue sectional by Varick Gallery is precisely what the designers and manufacturers wanted in a sofa: a high-end furniture solution that is available to everyone.

So if you want a sofa sectional that is available in both right as well as left facing models, and want quick, easy, reliable, and free delivery, this is a great sofa sectional to start with. The average rating of 4.4 stars on a scale of 5 by over 300 different customers is a solid confirmation of this sofa sectional as a great furniture item.
