Firm, comfortable and feels nice
At 123 lbs this is no lightweight, cheap piece of furniture. I opened the top of the box, then tore down all 4 corners, so that when it dropped the cardboard would protect the futon from the floor while I put it together. It turns out the instructions recommend this. When I opened it, I was surprised to find only 4 things in the box. The instruction booklet, 2 front bars and the futon. The futon is hinged in the middle, so the underside of the left and right half are against each other. I read thru the instructions and found that they're about the best I've ever seen. I learned you should have 2 people for assembly and that it would take about an hour. I had no help and because of a frustrating, but easily fixed problem, it took me 3 days. On the Parts page it shows all the parts, each assigned a letter, its name, the quantity of parts and a box to check as you found each part before assembly. At the bottom of the Parts page it shows the underside of the futon with a 3-sided line and says: 'Some parts will be found in the compartment under the seat as shown.' I opened the 2 halves of the futon as it was standing on what would be the back of a couch. There was a 3-sided zippered compartment under each half of the seat. Opening the 2 compartments, I found all the rest of the parts including the 2 arms. When I removed one arm, behind it I found the Hardware Pack with all the nuts, bolts, washers and tools needed. Everything was sealed in plastic. The hardware was all grouped together by type and had a number next to it that matched the item on the Hardware Pack page, along with the size and quantity of items. On the Hardware page it tells you not to tighten the hardware until the entire assembly is complete. Each part of the assembly is shown as a separate 'Step' listing what parts (by letter) and what hardware (by number) are needed for that step as well as showing a drawing of how to do it. On Step 2 you screw the short end of 4 double bolts into holes in the arms. The bolts have a short threaded section, a short unthreaded section, then a long threaded section that will fasten the arm to the futon. On Step 5 you insert the 4 bolts from the Arm into holes in the material and thru the frame into the underside compartment. You then add a washer, spring washer (lock washer) and nut then tighten the nut with the wrench. They warn against using power tools, so you don't strip the threads. WARNING: Be sure to read the next section to avoid my mistakes. It's hard lining up the bolts with the holes because there's no a lot of light between the futon and arm. I spent 2 days trying to get the right arm on, but the bottom bolt wouldn't go thru. On the third day, I removed the bottom bolt and the Arm went on. I removed the Arm and pushed the bolt thru each hole from the compartment. The bolt wouldn't go thru the bottom hole. The hole in the material was 1/4 inch off. While holding the bolt in place, I cut the material over the bolt with a jackknife and then it went thru. I put the bolt back in the Arm and the Arm went right on. The next part of Step 5 is to put a washer, spring washer and nut on each of the 4 bolts in the underside compartment. With the spring washer on, there wasn't enough bolt to get the nut on. The third bolt is about the center of the Arm, so I used only the washer and the nut on that one. When tightened, it pulled the Arm tight to the futon, so there was enough bolt to put both washers and nut on the other 3 bolts. With those tightened down, I removed the first nut, add the spring washer and tightened the nut. Then I repeated the process with the left arm. Oops! I then had to loosen all 8 nuts to do Step 6 - fasten the left and right bar to inside front corner of each Arm. After attaching all 6 legs, I had to get a neighbor to help lift the futon and set it on its legs. I could have done it myself, but was afraid all the weight at an angle on the back legs might snap them off as I tried to set it up. The helpful Hints page could have used a little extra text. The page uses pictures to show how to convert it from a couch to a bed and back. The picture shows 2 legs folding out the back of the couch to support it when its laid down. I felt all over the back and couldn't find anything. I finally leaned over the back and finally found a zipper. Each side of the back has a zipper pocket that the leg pivots down out of. I sat and then lay on the futon and its firm but comfortable. I've seen some that you could feel the frame thru the cushion. NOT this one. I'm tall and I still had futon left over when I lay on it. I grabbed a pillow and slept comfortably on it that first night.

Tough assembly and material defects
The Futon arrives at your house in a huge box. The box contains 6 pieces, 4 legs, screws, washers and tools. It took my husband and I three hours to assemble the futon mostly due to sloppy construction work by the manufacturer. One quarter of the threaded holes in the futon frame had melted plastic in them due to the way the manufacturer cut the holes in the material. We also found staples in the threaded holes. Not having clear, open threaded holes made it very hard to put the futon together. The side/arm parts were very difficult to put on trying to match the 4 studs with the pre-drilled holes was quite a challenge. Had to amend the instructions at this point and raise the back of the futon off of the floor. During construction, we noticed a hole in the material on one arm. There was information on the instruction manual on how to order damaged parts. We immediately ordered a new part. When I was taking a picture for my Spark Review, I noticed a diamond on the back of the futon that did not match the rest of the material (see picture below). We tried our hardest to brush the area and make it look like the rest of the futon, but we were unable to do so. We then ordered a replacement seat from DHP and received this email back from DHP. "Hi xxxxxx, Thank you for contacting us, I am sorry to hear that you're experiencing this issue with our product. Unfortunately we do not have the those parts in stock or the finished product to send you a replacement unit. Please contact Walmart for a return or exchange and they will let you know how to proceed and will issue a full refund for you. Thank you, Alma F. Consumer Service Representative" After this response, we have lost faith in the company to back up their products. Another negative on the looks is the black metal leg in the center of the futon. The other legs are so pretty it is a shame that the company did not supply the same type of legs for the center support. If you do finally get the futon assembled, you will find a very firm seat. We liked the back leaned to the back about 2 clicks. But we were more comfortable sitting with our feet up on the futon and leaning back. The grey is a true medium grey color. This is more of a 3/4 bed futon and not a full bed. Made into a bed the dimensions are 44" wide by 73.5" long. A full bed futon measures 54" wide by 75" long.

A good sleepable sofa

They call it a futon, but I think most people would agree with me that it looks more like a sofa. A futon is usually a very flexible mattress on top of a frame. You can sit on it during the day and sleep on at night. It is not a sofa bed either, which has a hidden mattress. You can pull out the mattress at night for the occasional guest. The sofa bed is much heavier than a sofa, because of the folding metal frame. This futon is exactly what we wanted. This futon came in one big box. Although it is not very heavy, it is very bulky. It took two men to move it upstairs. It was folded in half in the box. Once it was removed from the box, it opened up to full size. The remaining things to do were to add the trims and legs to it. All the small parts were inside the zip pockets of the back panels. Screws, nuts, bolts and tools were included. It is not like a typical piece of Ikea furniture, which comes in many small pieces. It took us two hours to set it up. It is very firm. It is covered with a velvet-like fabric. The backs can be lowered down easily to make it into a bed. It is 6 feet long, and can sit four family members. It may be uncomfortable for a person over 6 feet tall to sleep in it.

Lovely Sofa/Futon

I am so thrilled to have this Lovely Sofa/Futon. The gray color is a perfect grey for my Diva Den color scheme. The tufted design on the sofa/futon makes the it look more expensive than what it really is. The tufted design is also on the arm rest. The arm rest are padded and comfortable as well. The height of the arm rest makes it easy to sit and use your hand held devices. The cushion is stern but not stiff making it very comfortable. The sofa/futon has a prominent split in the center, which makes it look more like a sofa than a futon. The height of the sofa/futon is a little lower than a normal size sofa. I have a small dog, she has no problem jumping on the sofa/futon. The sofa/futon arrived in a very large heavy box. I do not suggest moving it alone, unless you have a dolly. All tools needed for assembly is included. you will need a ratchet(which is not included) to move the assembly process quicker. The assembly took 3 hours. It was time well spent when you view the finished product.

Beautiful sofa.

This is a Novogratz vintage tufted back futon in gray. This arrived in one big box. It was heavy, so if you can get a friend to help with the lifting that would be good. The futon is gray but also looks sage green with my sage throw pillows. The arms of the futon came stored in the back of the futon along with the screws. It was pretty easy to put together. The futon is made with a robust wooden frame in an elegant vintage design with wide arms and victorian legs. It's covered in soft velvet with a diamond tufted seat , cushions, and arms. The split back can be independently reclined to multiple positions. The back legs come in a zippered apartment and can be stowed away when its in sofa position. This futon measures 81.5" long x 3.5 wide and the bed is 73.5" long x 44 wide" x 17.5 " high. A very nice addition to the living room.

Pleasantly Surprised

So from the picture online I was expecting a completely different couch than arrived. Thought it would be navy and a different shape. After dragging in a HUGE, HEAVY box from the porch and opening it, the first thing that caught my eye was the couch came in pieces and was not navy, but a beautiful steel blue color. I suggest having 2 people to help get the box in the house and putting together. I Unfortunately could not wait for my husband to get home, so I did it my self. It took me about 2 hours to get out of box, get parts and hardware organized and then to put together. Directions and assembly are pretty straight forward. Just note the parts and hardware are in the compartment under the seat. Just unzip and they are neatly packed there. Also note, to attach the arms, you will need to unzip that area again to get to the side of the couch. The instructions were not crystal clear about that. Took me a couple of minutes to figure that out. The Novogratz Vintage Tufted Split Back Sofa Sleeper is more of a fancy futon. It is very firm and I think it would be rather tough to sleep on but I love the look of the couch. It has a contemporary look with a bit of vintage flair. I like the split back that enables you to put one side down and the ability to keep the other in a sitting position. Both sides are able to click to recline at different angles. Also, there is a hidden small zipper on each side of the back cushion where you will find the pull out legs for sleeping for support. The velvet fabric seems to be durable and its extremely soft to the tough. And I love the tufted look. I will be using the Novogratz Vintage Tufted Split Back Sofa Sleeper in my office for extra guests so it will not get daily use, but it is sure cute. Love the overall look of the Novogratz tufted back sofa.

Nice color

Big box need to assemble. Haven't done it yet since i will be moving out pretty soon. Well the sofa is a sleeper with no pillows and it could be put in 3 different ways. By the material it looks comfortable. Even do is a sleeper sofa i will only be using for naps. I would like this sofa to last in our home. Beautiful color not to dark blue.

Complicated Comfort

This futon is a decent size, soft, beautiful, and moderately comfortable. The set up is much simpler if there are at least two people to set it up. It's very heavy and for one person to assemble on their own, it's slightly challenging. The seat is one piece and folds in half. The arm rests are then connected and the knob legs (wooden) attached to the base of those, followed by the middle support leg (plastic). I attached everything according to the instructions and it came together easily. I'm sure that it is fine for structural stability, but in my mind I'm concerned about the plastic leg and how the armrests are the main support mechanic. As a couch, it works beautifully, but folded out as a bed, it doesn't feel all that secure. Either there's something compromised with the foldout legs that causes it to gove, or they're too short and/or not aligned properly. I will most likely not use the futon as a bed because of this. I don't want someone to fall off or have the futon flip. The weight distribution is shoddy and I don't like that. The materials used in the manufacturing process seem like decent quality and there were no defective parts that I could outwardly discern. The velvet upholstery seems quite durable for velvet and is very soft and smooth. I like to “pet” it. There were no visible defects or blemishes on or in the upholstery work and I am very pleased with how it's held up to the everyday wear and tear as long as I've had it set up. (One week and two days as of writing this review.) I have dragged it around on its side and backside a few times and dragged it along the feet several more times and the only issue was with the foam sticky pads attached to the knob legs slid off, of which I expected to happen on carpet and not being able to move it without help. I just gather them up, lift a leg and then reattached them as needed. Overall, I am very pleased with this futon and feel this will make a great guest room or occasional living room/office seating. I don't think it's adequate for a guest bed unless it's reinforced with the foldout support legs. It's beautiful and probably worth the price. It might be as simple as folding a small piece of cardboard in half and slipping under the foldout legs. I strongly suggest when assembling to assemble where the futon will stay. It's not bad, but requires some gentleness.

Great looking, full feature futon.

The Novogratz vintage tufted split back futon is going to replace the air bed we have to set up in the spare bedroom when guests spend the night. It really looks great and is long enough for a six foot person to sleep on without his/her feet reaching the end. It is heavy, (110 lbs.) and robust so I'm believing it will last a very long time. I had a bit of help from the wife so the assembly wasn't too frustrating. I also used my ratchet wrench which greatly speeded up the build. When we finished the assembly, I stored the instruction sheets inside the zippered storage area behind the futon, just in case in the future we could disassemble it for whatever reason. We both really like the steel grey color and the Victorian wooden feet. The fairly wide arm rests are quite comfortable and the split reclining backs are a terrific feature. The only thing that would prevent me from awarding this five stars is the firmness. This is probably the firmest cushions I've encountered and I'm not too sure I'd wish to try and sleep on it as is. We plan on getting some kind of cushy mattress pad for it to provide it a little more give. I'm believing this futon is a solid quality product, worth the purchase price. Maybe in time the cushions will begin to soften up and be more comfortable.

Instructions leave out one critical step

The boxed futon weighs 123 lbs. The box is approximately 46" long, 37" tall, and about 16" wide. Be prepared to move it with several people. I found this futon to be surprisingly firm. Was worried it would be soft. The velvet material looks very nice. And is very soft. The tufted aspect does not have buttons at the tufts which is nice. Don't want buttons poking into your back or bottom. The seating area on the futon is 6' across. It sits 5" off of the floor. The arms are 22" from the floor. And the back of the futon when in couch position is about 31" from floor. It is very roomy. The instructions leave out one very critical step. In the pictures it shows that the zipped up area on back is closed when you do several of the first steps. Then it is opened back up for others steps. DO NOT ZIP ALL THE WAY BACK UP AFTER REMOVING ITEMS FROM ZIPPERED AREA. It is very important not to zip up the zippered area all the way. Leave the zipper down at least a foot or more. The reason is the in order to attach the arms to the seat you have to be able to get to the bolts. And the only way to do that is to go thru the zippered area to reach them. And if you zip it up all the way, the head to the zipper is under the bottom piece that you attached right before the arms step. One of the set of holes for the large bolts that hold the arms on did not line up with the bolts. We had to drill out these holes so that the bolt could go thru and be able to screw into the arm. Also when screwing in the bolts that hold the arms on, you screw the short end in by hand. Make sure you do it all the way that it can go. If not, it will make the whole bolt move when putting the nut on in another step. It ended up taking 3 people 2 hours to put this together. Which is twice as long as the instructions say it should take. I would like to give this futon more stars but the problems putting it together outweigh in my mind the comfort of the futon.

Tough assembly and material defects

The Futon arrives at your house in a huge box. The box contains 6 pieces, 4 legs, screws, washers and tools. It took my husband and I three hours to assemble the futon mostly due to sloppy construction work by the manufacturer. One quarter of the threaded holes in the futon frame had melted plastic in them due to the way the manufacturer cut the holes in the material. We also found staples in the threaded holes. Not having clear, open threaded holes made it very hard to put the futon together. The side/arm parts were very difficult to put on trying to match the 4 studs with the pre-drilled holes was quite a challenge. Had to amend the instructions at this point and raise the back of the futon off of the floor. During construction, we noticed a hole in the material on one arm. There was information on the instruction manual on how to order damaged parts. We immediately ordered a new part. When I was taking a picture for my Spark Review, I noticed a diamond on the back of the futon that did not match the rest of the material (see picture below). We tried our hardest to brush the area and make it look like the rest of the futon, but we were unable to do so. We then ordered a replacement seat from DHP and received this email back from DHP. "Hi xxxxxx, Thank you for contacting us, I am sorry to hear that you're experiencing this issue with our product. Unfortunately we do not have the those parts in stock or the finished product to send you a replacement unit. Please contact Walmart for a return or exchange and they will let you know how to proceed and will issue a full refund for you. Thank you, Alma F. Consumer Service Representative" After this response, we have lost faith in the company to back up their products. Another negative on the looks is the black metal leg in the center of the futon. The other legs are so pretty it is a shame that the company did not supply the same type of legs for the center support. If you do finally get the futon assembled, you will find a very firm seat. We liked the back leaned to the back about 2 clicks. But we were more comfortable sitting with our feet up on the futon and leaning back. The grey is a true medium grey color. This is more of a 3/4 bed futon and not a full bed. Made into a bed the dimensions are 44" wide by 73.5" long. A full bed futon measures 54" wide by 75" long.
