This couch seats and feels more like a bench, like a wooden bench. It is hard as a rock. But it's stylized and looks super cool. It is not very deep, so don't even think about laying down on your tummy and reading a book. If you are over a size 6 (women), one of your hips is going to be hanging off the side of the couch. It is more like a vintage train station bench, like in Grand Central Station. It looks gorgeous, it looks solid, but it is incredibly lightweight and the leather is incredibly thin. However, my son marked on it and it came right up with a Magic Sponge, so that was great. It is easy to move around, assemble and disassemble, so that has been excellent as well. I just don't think a couch this uncomfortable should cost almost $****, but style over substance is definitely worth something, and I paid for it, and I actually like how it looks and the function of it for what we needed it for.
