The description on the website in regards to the fabric was lacking, I would have prefered a different fabric, but the color was spot on. The seat cushions are misshaped. I've had the sofa put together now for a month and the cushions look awful. All of the cushions are super firm, not very comfortable. The cushions do not stay in place, I have to continuously have to stand and push them to the back of the sofa. The instructions were very difficult to interpret. Though the sofa was easy to put together, the instructions were confusing. After putting it together at first, when you sit on the sofa toward the front, it will flip forward. I had to take it apart and move the stability bar, bad instructions, poor design. There was no "dust cover", it is mentioned in the instructions several times but none came with my loveseat. Had I known the fabric would be held down with velcro, I most likely would have chosen a different product. Overall, I'm really not happy with the loveseat.

This sofa goes with the other Uptown Microfiber Vinyl chairs which are Chocolate Brown and sold on Overstock as well as the loveseat which has sold out. For some reason the posting for the sofa doesn't mention the color.<p>The cushions are removable but not reversible. They are supported by fabric webbing. The arms are well padded.Although the box was torn in shipment the only flaw we found was a tear where a the vinyl was attached to the front stretcher bar by staple. But the cushion covers it.<p>The seating is firm but comfortable. I don't know how it will hold up. We've only had it six days.<p>A tag attached to the sofa says among other things "Only quality leather is used to ensure style and durability". This tag is misleading, since the sofa is not leather. But since we purchased it online, didn't see the tag and Overstock clearly stated the fabric was vinyl micro-fiber, the tag did not lead us astray. I do wonder about the veracity of other statements made on the tag.<p>(Due to Overstock review rules I won't name the company whose name appears on the tag.) This petite sofa will add to your home elegance for sure.<p>The sofa was made in Sanxiang Town in Zhongshan City in Guangdong Province southern China. The workers who made the sofa did a fine job.

I have a bedroom big enough where I could use some seating, but too small for a full sized sofa. I was looking at reclining loveseats, double pappasan chairs, and lovesac/fufsacs, but I went with this one. One of my biggest concerns is if I (guy) and a friend (guy) could both sit on it and not be awkwardly close. This item passes that test. Good rich color, check. The mattress is pretty firm so none of the bars that make up this thing's STURDY construction are felt. Despite being 'firm' it is very comfortable. Even folded up, this is my preferred nap spot. I put this at the foot of my bed in front of my TV (on a flat screen stand) and it sits low enough where I can lay in bed and see the TV over the backrest. The reclining mechanism takes some getting used, but feels structurally sound. I needed vice clamps to get the two parts together to put in the screws, but I don't mind the extra assembly effort since it usually translates into increased durability. The sofa back positions are good, upright has a comfortable recline, and the next one is quite loungier, but would work well with an ottoman. I've spent over $3,700 on pieces to redo my bedroom and this item comes as a CLOSE second in terms of quality for value of them all (#1 is a Jaguar 3 in 1 flat screen stand from Target). VERY Satisfied. Oh, and $50 warranty for damages for 5 years? STEAL.

The soft went together without a hitch. I am one person and it took about 20 minutes from unpacking to complete set-up. One thing I did notice was that the connection bars (with reference to the drilled holes) were not reversible. The distance from the edge of the bar to the first hole was different when the bars were reversed. As each bar is identical, I recommend they be laid out adjacent to each other so that the holes line up. This makes the installation easy. I also suggest the bolts be installed loosely so that the bars can be re-positioned, if necessary. It might of been nice if the instructions said something about how the sofa's ratchet mechanism operated - pictures were not very useful.

I am very pleased with this item. Like all sofa beds, it tends to be a little uncomfortable to sleep on it (because of the bar down the center) but if you use it to sit on, it is very comfortable. I love the look of it also!

There are 3 long square pegs that connect the two sofa sections. The parallel sides of these bars are both drilled with holes, HOWEVER only one side is actually threaded. Luckily for me the first bar I attempted to screw together was on the unthreaded side and I had to separate the sections and correctly reposition all my bars. I would have been VERY upset had I attached the first or second bar and then found the next one inserted wrong. I would have had to undo all those connections. Since the screws don't even reach the other side of the bar, I don't know why they drilled both sides only to cause confusion. Seems the manufacturer wisened up and now the washers, bolts and wrenches are properly packaged. The only written instructions besides the pictures says connect the sections then attach the legs. I feel it's better to attach the legs first so you have some leverage when trying to pull the sections together. One hole in one of my bars didn't line up so I couldn't insert the screw. Also the center leg moved out of position a bit after I moved the sofa into position. But it was easy enough to correct.

The sofa was very easy to assemble. It was a matter of screwing in the legs and brace bars, flipping it over and you're done. Very nice addition to my guest room/office. Color is how it looks in the pictures.

the product is beautiful and elegant looking. You wont be embarassed to your guest. I assemble it myself. The only negative, some or i think 2 holes is not align to the bar hole, so right now im seating on it with 2 holes no srew on it. But otherwise it is perfect and beautiful.

I love this little settee! I was looking for something small and comfortable for my latest home project - converting essentially a junk room into a home bar/jigsaw puzzle room and it fit the bill perfectly.

I'd agree with the added layer of complexity with the drill holes to put together, and that would be easier with two people to put together. But, not impossible! USE THE SHORT SCREWS FOR THE BARS and the long screws for the legs!!

The sleeper looks stylish, the padding is firm and it was easy to put together. Note about assembly, when you are matching up the center bars, lift the couch up on its end and use its weight to help align the holes.

Me and my boyfriend bought this 2 years ago. Very unconfortable from the begining, and he has lower back pain and this does not help. not easy to clean, hard to move around, and a pain. the middle bar is broken and has been after the first 6 months. i wouldn't recommend this.

The couch looks good, and is not too difficult to assemble (although having two people will make it a lot easier); however, this couch is very poorly engineered. The couch cushions are support only by a board sitting on top of two side bars and one middle bar. The first time I sat down, I sat in the middle of the couch and the middle bar gave out and the front panel became bent. I am 5'7" and 155 lbs. I expect that a $!@# couch should support someone of my size and weight. I called Overstock and they are sending me a replacement front panel, but that doesn't solve the real problem: there is not enough support in this couch. I like the look, and it would be a real hassle to totally return it...so I think I will keep it, but I will have to add supporting blocks of wood to the middle bar, and possible other areas of the couch in order for the bottom not to give out again.

I bought this a year ago and have been very happy with it. It works well as a sofa and as a bed, though quite firm. My only challenge was that 4 of the holes were not drilled in the steel bars, making assembly difficult. Without a metal drill bit, I had to skip securing the bars in those locations, but it's held up wonderfully despite that. Just a note - the two halves weren't perfectly aligned, so when it's upright as a sofa, one side reclines about 3 inches further back than the other side. The fabric has held up great with the dog and kids without a single stain, and they've definitely tried!

The material is very soft and good looking. Style is excellent and fun to switch from couch/chair settings. For the price excellent overall satisfaction. I bought two of these....only problem was that the holes did not align perfectly on the three middle bars and the foot ends. Which meant flipping one bar completely around and switiching many bolts and peices....as not much was precise...took 2.5 HOURS to assemble both of these couches. IF the precision was better...would have took 10 minutes to put together each bed. Was worth it though...they look great and provide options for guests...

I am sitting on this sofa bed as I write my review. The microfiber is very soft and pleasant to the touch. I am constantly smoothing my hands over it. I like it because it lets me sit up high when I am watching the television, and it is a good sleeper bed when I get tired. Putting it together was a focused effort. Before pushing the metal bars into one another, a buyer should check the holes the screws will insert into. Some were not full circle and so had to turn the insert bar around as metal was in the way. I'd gotten it all together and then the last two holes would not line up. I used two screwdrivers and inserted them into the hole for the screw and pushed to the right. Was then able to get the screws in and the sofa sleeper was connected. All in all, it took me about 30 minutes or so to assemble the item by myself. It is a firm sit, and at times you can feel the bars underneath you, but you can adjust your sit and then it is fine. Rated it a four as it took effort to get it assembled, other than that I am very satisfied with my buy. I wish there were a chair like this sofa in the same chocolate brown. I'd buy it in a heartbeat! Thanks, Overstock!

We bought this for my daughter's bedroom and we all love it!!! It looks exactly as shown pictured and the fabric is very sofa and comfortable. It was very easy to put together, just attach the two leg bars and done. The style of this sofa bed is contemporary and looks very expensive but its not. I am a picky person and I am very happy with this purchase, so I think you will not be disappointed at all.

This sofa bed looks really nice, and I love that you can recline only one side or both. It's fairly comfortable, but no one has slept on it yet. My only complaint is with the assembly. To put the two sides together, the bars were supposed to slide right in. My husband had to get the rubber hammer to make the pieces go together. Overall, we are pleased.

We love our new sofa bed! Customer service was very helpful with taking our order. It was not difficult to assemble--but it did require my twin's assistance and myself! The most difficult part of assembling it was aligning the center bar with the screw holes. It did require the three of us to push the two seats in towards each other with alot of force! The diagram was labeled very well.

We ordered this sofa for our newly created "wine bar". We were very weary of ordering such a big purchase online without seeing the actual color, or being able to try first for comfort. But after reading all the reviews we decided to go for it. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and COLOR of the sofa. It is a beautiful rich red just as others had said. The only drawback to this couch is the extreme firmness of the seat cushions. Although with that being said, we have had sofa's that are very comfortable in the beginning and then become too soft within a few months. So hopefully this one will break in nicely and be a bit more comfortable in time. All in all, it turned our wine bar into a gorgeous place to hang out. Would highly recommend!
