Small seating area. I'm 5'11" and my ankles and feet hang off the end when reclined. Can't scotchgaurd, when tested color rubbed off. Padding on arms very minimal and seat gives too much but I'm 250 so it may be expected with me. Material very soft and it does recline to various positions according to how much you push back, which is done easily and smoothly. Full recline position is comfortable. Overall looks are good. It's ok for the money.
