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.

We purchased the dark green Pembroke sofa and love seat when we fell in love with the looks of it in the store. Unfortunately, we didn't sit in it long enough in the store to realize like the other reviewers that the seats are VERY deep and high. It's great for a long nap, but I find that I need to put the throw pillows behind me to sit comfortably -- I'm 5'8", so I'm not a short person! I love the feel of the fabric and it looks wonderful in my family room with the rug we also bought, but regret the purchase because of the depth and highth of the couch and loveseat. My mother won't even sit on them when she comes over!. Wish there was a return policy!!! Also, be aware that the pillow are attached on the back of the sofa and are not loose as we thought!
