The Morpheus sofa sectional by Mercury Row is a trendy, straight-lined sofa with a very modern design. It comes with a chaise and comes in two color themes. When used in conjunction with drapes, rugs, mats, and toss pillows, it can give your living space, lounge, den, or family room a new, vibrant centerpiece for guests, friends, or even just yourself or family.
Because the color options that this sectional comes in are rather dark, this may be an item that is better suited to cozy, traditional settings, rather than a lively home centerpiece. Ideal for entertaining guests or relaxing on after a long day at work, this reversible sectional is easy to assemble, light, easy to clean and maintain, readily affordable, and is sleek, compact, yet spacious. The last point about spaciousness and compactness are especially relevant to folks living in apartments or smaller living quarters; with limited space, you would want to maximize the utility of anything you place in your home. The Morpheus sofa sectional has been designed with exactly this type of need in mind, and it has been designed to be reversible, easy to transport, and a cinch to assemble.
Morpheus Row aims to provide consumers with trendy, affordable household furniture options. Contrasting colors are used with this product, as well as construction on solid hardwood frames, modern designs, straight lines, and a clean finish (which is true of all of their products). With primary focus on affordability and function, Morpheus Row products are for smart individuals who want stylish, affordable, and easy-to-use furniture solutions.
This is a polyester and polyester-blend sectional that is reversible (it can be set up in either right-facing or left-facing orientation). It is an L-shaped sectional, and it comes with one sofa, one removable chaise, and three seat cushions that are guaranteed not to slide. Built on a wooden frame made of hardwood, its seating firmness is medium. It comes in solid patterns and features seat cushions and cushion covers that are removable. The back cushions are not removable, however, nor are the cushions reversible.
The arms are track arms, and the back is made in tight-back design. Plastic, removable legs that come with black finish are included, and the wood finish is espresso. Made in the United States, the overall weight of the product is 145lbs (the sofa on its own weighs 110lbs), and it has a maximum weight capacity of 600lbs. Assembly is required, but the entire sectional can be set up without tools. No additional parts are required either.
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.

If you are interested in buying protection for this item, you can purchase a pretty comprehensive protection plan for $39.99. The plan is provided by Uniters, and it covers accidental stains, incidental damage, and it even provides a 30-day risk-free refund if you are not satisfied. Further, you are given the manufacturer’s promise of full repairs with no deductions in case of any mishaps, and your coverage can be availed immediately. Finally, you can file a claim any time you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
With reference to accidental stains and incidental damage to your furniture, this means that you are covered for unintentional stains, rips, tears, burns, punctures, chips, dents, and water rings. Customers who purchase a protection plan are covered for the above-mentioned damages as soon as their sofa is delivered. However, all customers should keep in mind that damage caused by neglect, improper care, intentional abuse, a failure to comply with the manufacturer’s warranty, or as a result of using the sofa or sectional for purposes other than its intended purpose of sitting on are not covered.
The colors are dark and deep, and the product itself is very sleek and modern. Although it is designed to be compact, it still is very roomy and spacious. In fact, it is more of a large couch than a sectional. And in terms of softness, this is a sofa that is more firm than it is soft, and the back cushions are very comfortable (the back cushions are attached, and that’s a big plus). The chaise lounger can be placed to the left or to the right of the sofa which is great for different living spaces or for changing things up a bit, and the underside of the cushions have Velcro which prevents the cushions from shifting and sliding.
The black version isn’t as shiny as it may seem in the online picture, and that’s a good thing. The fabric is also quite sturdy and tough. From delivery to having it set up and ready for sitting, all you have to do is screw in the feet and stand the sofa up. Overall, in terms of price, value, modern style, deep colors, reversible chaise, sturdy construction and upholstery, and friendly delivery, this sofa has an average score of above 4 a 5-star scale.
A few people complained that hair really sticks to the upholstery material, and that having this sofa in a house or apartment with pets isn’t the best idea. Where the chaise meets the couch, the cushion feels as if it is made of different foam, or as if it is of different density. The chaise is somewhat firmer than the couch, meaning that the cushion sinks a little more on your rear than on your legs.
Other customers complained of slow delivery, misshapen cushions and seat foams after only a few weeks of use, cheap construction, minimal comfort, lack of depth (meaning it cannot comfortably be used by overnight guests), excessive firmness (meaning the cushions do not get broken in to a comfortable level over time, and that they instead lose their shape) and rough, canvas-like upholstery. Added to this list were complaints of the plastic legs having inadequate strength, and somewhat unprofessional finishing on the product overall, even though it has proudly been made in the USA.
When buying sectionals and couches, it is often somewhat difficult to draw a line between what makes a good sofa and what makes a bad one. This sectional looks great, the color schemes have been carefully chosen by professional designers, the lines and cuts have been purposefully meshed with the modern angle that the company was going for, and it is very compact and easy to assemble. However, for less than $500, you may not be in a position to expect exceptionally high levels of comfort. From issues with stiff cushions to problems cleaning pet fur from the sectional’s upholstery, customers who expected more despite the price were the ones who were disappointed the most.
The bottom line for the Morpheus sofa sectional by Mercury Row is that it is ideal for first-time sofa buyers, young adults, anyone living in small apartments, and for those who plan to perhaps buy a better sofa or sectional within the next year or so. If you want to quickly furnish your living space with a piece of functional furniture that is cheap, easy to install and assemble, comes in vibrant colors, and can be used with a fair amount of flexibility and versatility, this is not a bad sofa sectional to start with.
