This couch is a very nice looking couch. It is a little smaller than what I was expecting and it is really firm. I am hoping the cushions soften a bit in time. Overall I am happy with this purchase. My living room is small so it is not that big of a deal that it is smaller than expected. I do think this couch is better for office spaces/smaller spaces. It's not a "lounge all day watching TV" kind of couch. I easily put the couch together all by myself. There were two places where the predrilled holes did not match up. It hasn't been a problem though.
