Like many others, I read the amazing reviews and took the leap to purchase my Carmine without ever seeing it. I ordered swatches and poured coffee on them to see if they would stain. I thought I would go for a dark gray couch to hide any accidents but the fabric's resistance to liquid gave me confidence to purchase a lighter blue fabric. I originally wanted linen but the melange weave was softer and tighter. I also did a lot of measuring against my old Havertys couch so I had a better understanding of the Carmine's dimensions. The Carmine took 4 months to get to me but it was worth the wait. The piece is very hefty in terms of weight. The framing is definitely solid. I'm glad I purchased from Maiden Home and not Bassett. The Carmine has eight-way hand-tied springs whereas the Bassett tailored couch only has coiled. I especially enjoyed Maiden Home's updates and being able to check in at any time to see the status of my Carmine. I purchased an Ethan Allen bed at the same time and there was no update whatsoever. I just had to wait in the dark and hope they didn't delay my order. Maiden Home lives up to their reputation. They provide quality furniture and excellent customer service. I would highly recommend.
I ordered the Carmine for our guest house living room. I liked that I could order it in a performance fabric and see large swatches of the fabric in advance. It arrived in a timely manner, much faster than the rest of the custom furniture I have ordered during the pandemic. I was also appreciative that the customer service team was able to work with me on the delivery as our home requires a smaller truck in the driveway. Overall the furniture quality seems to be really great with good attention to detail. The price is excellent. My only critique like others have mentioned is that I wish the legs came in a turned style. They appear too modern for the sofa and having an alternative option I think would have been nice. Overall I am pleased and look forward to seeing if it stands the test of time.
I love that the Carmine is so neat and pretty! The tailored look is appealing and lovely yet very seriously comfortable. I had my Carmine covered in Merino Dusk and it looks and feels delicious! I ove that I can let the dogs on the sofa and I don't have to hold my breath, the fabric is sturdy and will last a long time. This was a great choice and I have no regrets! Delivery was as easy as it gets.
When I moved from a small apartment to a townhome, I knew I wanted to purchase a sofa from maiden home. I have worked on photo shoots with this company, met the founder, and have always been so impressed with the attention to detail and the quality of the construction. I wanted a piece that I would keep forever. I chose the carmine because it effortlessly brings together traditional shapes with a modern aesthetic. I love the role arm details, and the sloping back. I’ve always wanted a green velvet sofa, and the olive velvet is the most beautiful shade that is just unusual enough, but isn’t out of place in my traditional home. It’s also very easy to clean cat hair off the fabric. This sofa is both timeless and neutral enough to keep forever, but also unique enough to make a statement in my home. The cushions are firm and supportive, yet comfortable to curl up for my morning chai. It’s one of my favorite places in the house to sit. My husband was skeptical of buying a sofa without sitting on it, (he’s 6’4” and always uncomfortable with low-backed sofas) but he loves the firmness of this sofa.
The whole process with maiden home was effortless and felt luxurious. I got email updates of the progress that was being made on the couch, which was exciting. It means a lot to me that these couches are handcrafted in the USA, and despite Covid they did not have the crazy delays other furniture companies were having with manufacturing overseas. Everyone who comes over loves this couch and asks where I got it, I’m quick to recommend this company. I can’t wait to order another piece from maiden home!
We bought the carmine and ottoman and are extremely pleased. The process was great - it took awhile d/t Covid, but delivery was great and the sofa is just beautiful. The design is nice, and we love the tight back. The couch always looks nice, it's firm and supportive and seems like it will last a long time. The color is also beautiful and very versatile. /Users/RTN/Desktop/IMG_4232.JPG
