First Impressions:

Go ahead, keep staring. Not only is the Mind Share sofa by Allsteel interesting to look at, but it’s also interesting to experience. Do you need a private space? An open space? The Mind Share, part of Allsteel’s Gather Collection, can create both spaces with its high backings.


The base cushion is very firm and the lower-height backing provides good lumbar support; however, your upper back gets the short end of the stick. The layered backing makes leaning awkward and creates a lack in spinal support. Not only does it disregard posterior support, the material is scratchy and uncomfortable. Unlike a soft pillow that your head never wants to leave, you will not want to snuggle up to the Mind Share.


Why is the backing longer than the cushion you ask? It’s so you can slide the two sofas together to make one L-shaped sofa; however, they don’t fit together like puzzle pieces. There’s still a good-sized gap between the two couches when pushed together. Though easy to slide, this sofa is still quite heavy, which makes it difficult to lift.

Why It Matters:

The Mind Share sofa by Allsteel will spice up your office appearance, but looks cannot surpass the lack of comfort that it provides. While this sofa is intriguing to the eye, your back will pay the price of your curiosity.
