Gus Modern Jane Chair
Looks good but not durable for daily use
Substance_jdno from Northern VA– Verified Buyer
I orders the Jane bi-sectional and chair in colburn Soapstone. I've had the product for over 2 months now and the fabric pills really easy. Brushing off pills often. Cushions are very firm so I think they may be durable but only time will tell. This product would probably be better in a formal living room that is not often used. Very dissapointing for a 4$$$ set. Definitely don't get the soapstone fabric, maybe the urban tweed is more durable.[...] 2 main cushions smelled of mold. [...] It took me 2 bottles of Fabreeze antimicrobial and a few days of all day sunlight to get the mold smell off. At least now I might have replacement cushions for when this cheap upholstery wears off.
