I would be shocked if that prior comment about Knoll quality came from real life experience.
And I agree with gome, they are not the most comfortable sofas. There are about 25 sofas that I would chose for a home before the florence knoll. They're more suitable to a situation where you always want them to look neat and dont want your guests to stay very long.
Most of what Florence Knoll designed were originally specified for office settings since that was the majority of their business at the time. A great deal of modern design that are actually comfortable to sit in were designed for residential.
