We bought the Pembroke sofa and Loveseat because of its good looks. However, once it was delivered we quickly regretted our purchase due to the sofa's height and depth of the cushions. I am 5'6", and neither I nor my 6'2" husband can get comfortable in it. I have a sick feeling when I think of how much we invested in these pieces and that we are stuck with them for years to come.

comfy furniture for shorter people
Don't know if this sofa was revamped since these old reviews were entered but I just bought the Pembroke today because my short legs could touch the ground when sitting on it (I'm 5'4"). Got loveseat, chair & ottoman. Scaled down version of what I am getting rid of because, after ten years, I want something different and something lower profile since I am not very tall. I'm giving 4 stars because it's not come yet and I want to use it before giving the full 5 stars. With La-z-boy quality, I am confident I will be pleased.

This sofa is very well made and we're very pleased with purchase. As stated in some reviews, customers were disatisfied with depth of seat cushions and comfort of cushions in back. There is ample padding on back of sofa and seat & rear cushions have the "ComfortCore" padding for maximum comfort. The Pembroke is the only sofa in which this padding is included at no extra charge.
Yes, seating is deep but can't say it discouraged me when shopping for a sofa. Not being a tall person, my feet never touch the floor on any chair/sofa. My advice, check overall dimenstions online, as well as in the store, so there are no hidden surprises at time of delivery.
