In This Review
To determine the comfort and performance of the 25 Home Salo Antique Industrial Air Sectional, we take subjective measurements of 5 different factors.
Bounce was high on the seat cushions of the Salo. They offer a fair amount of pushback initially that quickly peters out. This level of bounce helps to create a surface that is easier to move around on.
Sinkage is fairly minimal on the Salo Sectional. Lighter bodies will feel like they are sitting on top of the sofa, while heavier weights will sink deeper into the foams.
This type of sinkage helps to create a high level of support, while still remaining comfortable to sit on.
Pressure relief on the Salo Sectional was excellent. Being a sectional with a deeper seat, you find yourself lounging rather than sitting like you would on a chair. This deeper seat depth means that it’s not the most ergonomically balanced sofa, but it is great for lying out and lounging with your feet elevated on a table or the sofa itself.
The balanced level of pressure relief we experienced in testing is great for long periods of lying on the sofa.
The Salo Sectional has a high level of support. Despite the excellent pressure relief, the medium firm feel and minimal sinkage create a supportive surface.
The wooden frame offers a strong base for the foam cushions to offer support throughout the seat and back.
We found firmness levels for the Salo Sectional to be a 5 out of 10, where 10 is the most firm. This medium feel should be a good fit for most people. However, if you prefer to sink deeper into your sofa, you may want to consider something softer.
There really isn’t an assembly process for the 25 Home Salo Sectional, as it comes fully assembled. The majority of the work is unboxing the sofa and removing the packaging.
The sofa we tested was quite large, and there was a good amount of packaging materials to remove. It took 1 person around 30 minutes to unbox and remove the packaging materials.
Once that’s done, the actual setup is incredibly easy. Just move the sofa into place, put the cushions on it, and you’re done.
Do make sure you double check that the plastic feet are properly attached to the legs. One of my plastic feet fell off. However, I was able to reattach it with a finishing nail.
Overall design for the 25 Home Salo Sectional is quite good. Across the entire sofa, they use a fabric they call “air leather”. According to the manufacturer:
As a high-strength fiber, Air Leather is one time stronger than cotton and three times stronger than wool, making this fabric scratch-resistant and perfect for pets and children. Not only that, Salo Antique Industrial Air Leather Closed Sectional is also non-wrinkle and non-pilling, giving you the most worry-free experience
So far I’m pleased with the fabric. We’ve had a few minor liquid spills thanks to the kids. The liquid remained on the surface of the fabric while we went to get some paper towels to clean up the mess. Seems to do a good job at repelling liquid, at least briefly, instead of just absorbing it into the fabric.
The air leather has also done excellent versus my dog, who runs fast, jumps high, and has her nails and body all over the sofa. I haven’t seen any noticeable wear and tear on the sofa due to the dog.
The legs on the sofa are quite minimal, but that is by design. They are practically invisible and almost seem to fade into the floor.
I am pleased with this design, but I will note that during shipping one of the plastic feet fell off the leg. I was able to reattach it with a finishing nail and a hammer.
The frame of the sofa is quite durable and well built. It is made from larch wood and we didn’t note any obvious or apparent issues with the frame.
The seat cushions of the Salo offer a good amount of filling. They are quite supportive while still remaining comfortable.
The cushions create a 5 out of 10 firmness, where 10 is the most firm, and are stuffed with poly foam.
The arms on the Salo are supportive allowing people to lean into them with the help of a pillow. The armrests themselves offer a minimal level of cushioning and have a fairly square design. They are also covered in the air leather material.
Back cushions on the Salo were quite comfortable. They are filled to a medium density with poly fiber and feathers. They aren’t affixed to the sofa, which could be a pro or con. In our case we have kids and dogs constantly shifting the cushions around and pushing them over, which can be a bit annoying.
They offer a removable cover with a zipper that is covered by a flap in some cases, or on the outer edge in others.
The pillows are small, well filled, and reasonably dense. They are made with the same “air leather” that covers the sofa, and filled with a poly fiber and feather filling.

Should you buy the 25 Home Salo Antique Industrial Air Sectional?
I would recommend the 25 Home Salo Antique Industrial Air Sectional if you’re looking for the following features:
- Sectional for lounging: The 25 Home Salo has deep seats, deeper than many we’ve tested. While this makes it more difficult to sit in like a traditional sofa, it makes it perfect to lie down and relax into. The supportive back and comfortable cushions and pillows create a surface designed for lounging.
- Fabric resistant to messes: The “air leather” that covers the sectional offers a fabric that is easy to clean. We have kids and pets constantly using the sofa causing spills and other messes. The fabric has been able to repel the liquid for long enough to be cleaned up with a paper towel.
- Easy setup: Due to how 25 Home ships the sectional it is incredibly easy to set up. Unpacking does take some time, but no tools are required to put the sofa together.
