Macy’s *New* Furniture Online + $699 Sofa Sale

August 1, 2007

I’m sorry to sound so harsh, but I just don’t look to Macy’s as the source for finding good design. It’s one of those stores that I dash into for something that I really need (usually at the cosmetics counter) and then run for the door feeling very glad the moment fresh air hits my face. I dislike the entire store experience and find it all quite painful. That being said, I have to thank them for offering $699 sofas. And that I no longer have to endure physical pain to shop in their depressing store because they now have an online furniture store. Thank you Macy’s.

Macy's *New* Furniture Online + $699 Sofa Sale
So decor8 readers, if you’d like a deal or two, this Corona sofa is a terrific find (and on sale) for $699 and starting tomorrow (Aug 2), will be available in pear, stone, and a very dark chocolate. You can even purchase the coordinating Corona chair for $539. Yup. Steal of the century. I’m not saying anything about quality, but based on looks, these sofas are a great deal and look a lot like their more expensive cousins in the cool stores. Frankly, unless you plan on keeping it for 30 years, sleeping on it daily, or jumping up and down on it like a nut, I’m sure one of these will last you until you get sick of it anyway.

Macy's *New* Furniture Online + $699 Sofa SaleHere’s a few additional $699 sofas, including a yummy steal in chocolate velvet called Tyler. Note: It looks like a shorty in the picture, but it’s actually 82″ wide. The Margaret chair for $549 is another great value and I really like the lines and that it’s available in brown, cream, and blue. Very nice. The East Park Square coffee table (there’s a matching end table as well but I don’t match my coffee tables to my end tables, so I wouldn’t be into this) with a generous square travertine top and steel base is very sleek for $499. It looks like something you’d see in Elle Decor magazine in some tricked out space. I love finding great deals that look like you spent a fortune.

Macy's *New* Furniture Online + $699 Sofa SaleAnd I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I see a modular seating trend coming on for Fall/Winter ’07. Sectionals are hot. I’m not sure why, but all of the sudden they’re everywhere – magazines, showrooms, catalogs. They are the new foo dogs, I guess. Just a whole heck of a lot larger, so unless you have the space, step away from the sectionals.

    I got the catalog in the mail yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. Anyone out there know anything about their quality? We’re in the market for a new sofa and could easily live with one of these, but not if it’s just going to die on us in three years’ time!

    “… And that I no longer have to endure physical pain to shop in their depressing store.” LOL!

    I actually desperately need a new, sorta nondescript but contemporary couch like that. I’m worried about the overstock ones being a little flimsier, even though they seem cute, and cheap. So nice find, thanks.

    This post had me laughing – your description of the shopping experience there is spot on! These are great deals though and I too am pleasantly surprised.

    I love these couches!!!
    I just wish I had a house to put them in… :(

    Funny that you should post it, I saw it last week in the green. It is super cute. I sat in it and wasn’t a big fan of the fabric (some polyester type blend)

    I bought two Margaret sofa’s from Macy’s a couple of months ago (in bittersweet, aka brown) and I love them. I tend to like clean lines and it?s hard to find affordable & comfortable sofas in that style. These are mega comfortable and I got them on sale for $599 each. I was just tagging along with a friend who has very different taste than mine & was really quite shocked when Macy?s had anything I liked at all. Even better, when I originally went to buy them (at $699 each) the sales lady clued me in to an even bigger sale coming up. I ended up saving $200.

    But now I like the Corona better? it looks a bit like the Petrie sofa from Crate and Barrel, which is my dream couch. Think Macy?s will let me trade mine in?

    WOW. I am in love. I have been wanting couches like these for quite some time now. I might just have register at Macy’s for my upcoming wedding!

    Several years ago, we finished off our lower level basement, and when it came to choosing “the” couch-
    we went with a sectional. I must say, I too love the clean lines of say “Jonathan Adler,” but when it was
    unanimous to pick comfort, we all agreed that we needed a sectional for a family and d-o-g! We took newspaper and planned it out according to measurement and love it, it was from Crate & Barrel and it has really worn well!
    Sectionals really are comfy and very “Brady Bunch”

    we bought a sectional sofa from macy’s about a year ago. it was our second attempt to buy furniture from them… the first time, they teased us with delivery dates that kept getting pushed back and after 4 months, we gave up. the only reason we tried again was because they had a sectional that was in several different pieces (not just 2 or 3) so that if we rearrange our room, we can rearrange the pieces to look differently. So far, it’s held up pretty well – it has a little sagging but not unreasonable.

    they did try to sell me a warranty, which I declined because the manufacturer’s warranty seemed very good (5 years, including any damage or sagging). but all of their inventory comes from different manufacturers, so it’s worth double-checking.

    we also opened a credit card with them to take an extra 10 or 15% off, which made it a total bargain.

    What I most abhor about shopping at Macy’s is the lack of service-with-a-smile. If only there were those self-checkout lanes so you’d never have to depend on a salesperson! As for the sectionals trend, count me in! My first furniture purchase (after buying my house 8 months ago) was a brown sectional in microfiber. I love her clean, straight lines.

    It does look good, but could they have ripped off Boston Interiors any more blatantly (?):


    Maybe they got the idea from reading this blog, Holly ;)

    (Full disclousre ~ I am biased, as I own the Giselle loveseat from BI. I can, however attest to its fine build quality and comfort.)

    You know what is funny about furniture though (unless it’s room and board or pompy mills for instance), a lot of these stores all have the same manufacturers, so that’s why the sofas all look so much a like. Some of them ARE the same sofas, just a different fabric or color leg.

  • Reply Andy August 2, 2007 at 8:59 pm

    That MUST be what’s going on here.

    Just a note to say that I saw this post, sent the link to a good friend who was looking for a couch and she bought it in green today! I didn’t need it for myself (as my Camden has already arrived), but it was nice to make someone else happy with furniture for a change!

    I’m so so glad you posted this! I’ve been looking for a good looking sofa for my apartment, but have been putting off the purchase because everything I liked was a bit more than I wanted to spend. That pear corona is absolutely perfect, and with the tax discount it’s an absolute steal! Will be purchasing it this week (once I send a friend over to see it in person and give me the thumbs up).

    I was all excited when I saw this posting, but when I went to look at the sofa in person, I was a bit disappointed. The lines are clean and the colors are pretty, but the quality looks comparable to IKEA. It’s a pretty sofa for a small room, but I wouldn’t want to live with it for the next 8 years. The search for the perfect replacement sofa continues…

  • Reply decor8 August 3, 2007 at 7:22 pm

    Hi Linda! Thank you for your comment. Which sofa did you see since several are featured in this post. Can you be more specific? I trust your opinion!

  • Reply Miriam August 10, 2007 at 12:27 am

    Hi. Do you do consultations?
    Also…was not able to find the black table with white top (top image) sold by itself on Macy’s website. Only saw it in the picture with the couches – but not for sale.

    The Corona sofa really is a good deal – it is made by MAx Home, has a solid wood frame and lifetime warranty on frame. I bought a MaxHome sofa “Bacall” red with a chaise a few years ago and it has hled up very well. By the way, I was just in Macy’s last week, the store was surprisingly fresh and updated- NOT dreary at all, and sales staff was upbeat and friendly, give it another try!

    Recently I bought a Vice Versa Modular Tufted-Leather Living Room Furniture Collection by using Macys Promo Codes & saved 20%….!!

    Back in Oct. I purchased the round table with six chairs for Thanksgiving. The sales Rep looked up the items to see if he had them in stock. He said yes and pointed to the screen- 68 of them! Well by the time of the delivery, they had zero. Macy’s had called and said they would have to reschedule delivery. To make a long story short they over sold what the had from the catalog. With sending a complaining email to the corporate office. I had a call three hours after that email. They happened to find them and the delivery date was moved up a week. Hmmmm strange how things happen when complaining. So if you really like what you see follow your order to make sure its complete. Good luck!
