I don't know about the Lynden sofa specifically but we have recently got a couple of Laura Ashley sofas - kendal and padstow. We have had a few problems with some things from Laura Ashley (curtains, mirrors) BUT we're really pleased with the sofas. They're really comfortable and fairly good value for what we were looking for.
If you can, I would suggest getting loose covers so you can wash them from time to time - especially if you have young children (don't know if that applies to you)
Thanks Freezing...yes, we have 3 DCs under 5. Don't think there is a loose cover option on this one...but it's for a more formal sitting room so maybe okay. We have loose covers on the sofa's in the snug/playroom and they are useful shall we say.
