Very cool when it is in the chair shape, but if you try to open it and use it as a mat the long Velcro tabs will grab ahold of your carpet so BEWARE of this. They also grab ahold of dirt and pet air which will reduce their usefulness when you put the chair back into the futon shape. I'm hoping this won't happen too soon because the chair was expensive. A sad design flaw which could have been avoided with a little forethought. Mt daughter thinks it's cool though. It is quite big so make sure you have the space.
