Furniture Review: Valyou Feathers Sectional vs. Restoration Hardware Cloud Sofa

by Magdalena Munao

Finding new furniture to complete the look of your home is not just a box to check, but rather a form of self-expression and a statement of your taste and style to your future guests. If you’re in the market for new furniture, specifically a sofa, the two most talked about sofas on the market are the Restoration Hardware Cloud Sofa and the Feathers Sectional from Valyou. Heralded as the “IT” sofa by designers and décor blogs everywhere, as admired as it is, the Cloud Sofa from Restoration Hardware’s price tag is not. Despite their huge price difference, we had to compare the two best-selling sofas on the market: Valyou’s popular Feathers Sectional vs. Restoration Hardware’s Cloud Sofa.

Right off the bat, the price difference in the Cloud Sofa and Feathers Sectional is huge. If you’re trying to save a little extra money on the furniture buying side, the Cloud Sofa may not be for you. If you want the sectional setup that they’re known for, Restoration Hardware’s Cloud Sofa clocks in at a cool $10K. Designer name, designer price. Valyou’s Feathers sectional ranges from $1499 to $2499 depending on the arrangement you select. But for what’s probably the most popular sectional set up that is about 110 inches long with three sections included, one of those being a chaise, it comes to $1799. Also, when you subscribe to the Valyou Family Newsletter, you get a $50 discount code. Bonus!

There is no doubt that the Cloud Sofa is beautiful. Another selling point is that it comes in 149 different colors and fabrics to choose from so it’s definitely the more customizable option. Yes, you read that right—149! One downside though is that they recommend that most of their fabrics be professionally cleaned and if you custom order your Cloud Sofa, it takes about 100 days for it to be made. The cushions are 100% down filled, which sounds luxurious and is extremely comfortable, but we found that aesthetically, it’s not very live-able. With every use, the cushions are significantly compressed, leaving it looking flat and wrinkly. So, if you want the Cloud Sofa to look like it does on the RH website, you essentially have to fluff up the pillows and cushions after every time you use it. Whereas, the Valyou Feathers Sectional is definitely the more practical and live-able option. The cushions are made from high density foam and goose feather filling, but no so much so that the cushions lose their shape. After getting up from the Feathers sectional, the cushions revert to their plump form. It’s super soft and still it maintains its shape. Also, the cushion covers are 100% machine washable, making it easy to keep clean right at home. The Feathers sectional comes in two colors— Beige and Gray and offers four different configurations, 88 inches, 110 inches, 142 inches, and 170 inches.

As gorgeous as the Cloud Sofa is when styled and photographed, unfortunately, buyers will be disappointed to quickly learn that it probably won’t look that way the majority of the time unless you plan on literally never sitting on your sofa. For us, with all things considered, the Valyou Feathers Sectional is a no-brainer. It’s affordable, worth the value and most importantly, it’s functional. It’s not the sofa that you’re going to constantly have to maintain, like you would the Cloud. If budget isn’t an issue and your sofa is more for show than use, the Restoration Hardware Cloud Sofa might be for you. But if you’re like the majority of consumers and want something that’s priced reasonably and live-able, the Valyou Feathers Sectional is a great everyday use sofa that is also extremely stylish for the price.

I wouldn’t buy either of these because no one needs to sit on feathers that were ripped out of birds’ chests. Nothing looks prettier than compassion and kindness.

Shut up. Don’t like it, don’t buy it, and mind your business.

DO NOT ORDER FROM VALYOU!! THEY ARE A SCAM. I wish I could give Zero stars. I ordered a couch for thousands of dollars from Valyou 6 months ago. After 4 months of waiting and the shipping date continuing to be pushed back over and over again, I started asking the costumer service team when I could actually expect my couch to ship. When they couldnt give me any estimate or answer on why my product was delayed, I started to worry… After 3 phone calls, weeks apart with very unhelpful costumer service members, I decided to cancel, as it seemed like I would never get the couch. They continued to lie to me every time I wrote to them or called, saying my refund was “on the way” and it could take up to 14 days, etc. They finally admitted that they would not be giving me a refund, but would offer me credits to their website. I obviously freaked out and swore to warn everyone never to order from this company.
I believe that their company has gone under, and is no longer actually selling furniture because of all of the refunds and cancellations they have had in the recent months. They are also deleting negative comments off of many platforms. So until they take this one down too- DO NOT ORDER FROM THEM. They will 10000 percent scam you.

This is the WORST company I have ever dealt with. I placed an order 6 weeks ago and they can’t even tell me where it is. As far as I know, it doesn’t exist. After more research, I’ve concluded it is their standard company practice to list items as in stock when they are not. They take your money and then you get to wait for them to stock the item. They list the item as in stock and ready to ship on their website and they straight up LIE to people as these items are NOT in stock hence delays.

Customer service will give you vague responses talking in circles. They probably train their team in how to “answer” people without actually answering them. But they are happy to take your money. I received an email update saying “Your order is on the way” but contact the shipping company and they don’t have it. I honestly can’t believe that this company is still in business. This is deplorable. Shame on them for thinking this is any way to do business. They do not care about their customers at all.
