Perfect couch for son in his basement lounge, he is 12. It wipes off easily and is low sitting, perfect for the lounge/gamer room he has going on. The bottom where the back would sit one is made of a thin black lining (like the kind you would see under a boxspring) and he stepped through that the 1st day when he climbed over the top to get onto it instead of going around like a normal person. I stapled a heaver weight fabric on there (just like the other fabric is attached) and it seems to be holding up to even him. The seat back held up to him and his friends wrestling on it and hasn't broken, so that in itself should say it all. It is very comfortable to sleep on as well, something I have experienced 1st hand. The cats dug thier claws into the vinyl seat the 1st day I got it and left little pin holds but they are barely noticeable because the underlying fabric is off white all the way through. So in short, if this little sofa/futon can stand up to my family, it would be wonderful for anyone elses.

I was hesitant to order this futon at the time as it had not been reviewed yet but when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised. I was actually glad that the color was not truly white, as my office is beige, black and purple and it matches perfectly. I agree that this belongs in a smaller space and it is low to the ground but it is perfect for me and I like the firmness of the cushion. If you plan on using it as a bed however you should know that it is not suited for a tall person. I am 5'2'' and I fit comfortably but if you are over 5'7" you likely will not be too comfortable. Overall I am glad I made the purchase and the assembly is so easy (you only have to twist on the legs).

So I took the plunge and ordered this futon after reading the only review available at the time. I guess you do get what you pay for even from Overstock! I recommend you check the dimensions because it definitely is small, with a low back and quite low to the ground. We want it for extra seating in our daughter's bedroom in front of the TV and for that it works fine. Would not recommend for a living room but maybe a small den or sun room. Ordinary end tables would be way too tall for this futon. It is definitely more a light beige color rather than even off white, I would say. Also, the back of it is black felt-like cloth and my husband accidentally put his finger right through it when unpacking the box. So be REALLY careful when you unpack it. If you have it sitting against a wall the black back won't show but we have it in the middle of the room so we have to deal with that too. On the plus side, it seems comfortable to sit on and the back has 2 different positions, one straight and one more reclined. In summary, we will be keeping and using it and I hope it holds up well for the price.

The size of this sofa is perfect for the 2nd bedroom in my NYC apartment. Also, the assembly was pretty straightforward. The overall quality of the product, however, is absolutely horrendous. The stitching is generally irregular, and they missed some stitches altogether--which causes the sofa to look cheap or even defective. If I could, I would post photos to show you how bad it is! Also, clearly, it has not been produced with much care, and nobody inspected it before shipping it--as there are threads hanging out from everywhere and the mattress doesn't really fold right (it creates a lump on the right hand side when upright). The color, too, is a bit weird. It is beige, yes, but it has a strange green tint to it, making it look like a hospital sofa. All in all, I regret having purchased this but, frankly, it is too much trouble to ship it back.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is fairly close to how it shows on my computer, but it has a "hospital green" tint to it.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Absolutely horrendous. The stitches are irregular (or, at times, missing), there are threads handing out everywhere, and the cheap legs won't screw in tightly.

Well, it's about what I paid for. A bit bigger than I'd thought, having read the reviews. Measure your space. It's heavy - 54 pounds, I believe, so if you want some little portable thing, this might not be it. The color is accurate with my computer screen, but get it in normal light (not the glamour light of the catalogue), and it kind of looks like a car seat. The backing is that cheapie almost paperish black, so it won't look good in the center of the room as pictured. Also, the legs are plastic and hollow and one of mine came severely chipped. But it serves as a futon - not squishy soft but not horribly uncomfortable. Might slide under the bed with the legs off to store for a pretty firm cot. It's not terrible and kind of cute.

The description says its white but it is more like a light biege color. But overall, its a little small but comfortable. Don't put it in a large room or it will look lost. We do like the look of the button tucks, but for the most part, it's not what we expected. Just really wanted white.
I bought this for occasional use. Its is literally falling part...Not only are the seat coils not holding up but a lot of the seams are ripping and coming apart. The sofa is VERY small if you are 5ft you can sleep on it other than that no one can fit comfortably. I would not recommend anyone purchase this; it is a WASTE of money, not I have to buy something else.

Nice futon. Works great for my home office and as a spare bed. Assembly was as easy as it gets. Only problem was the legs are hard plastic and on delivery one of them was broken. The leg was still usable and I just faced the broken part towards the inside instead of facing out.. so it looks ok..just disapointed it was broken.

It's a prefect couch for a small room. Not ideal to sleep on if you're even average height. Wish that O.co would've offered a matching ottoman.

In reading the reviews of this futon prior to purchasing it, I had awareness that it was not 'fullsize'...not, perhaps suitable for a full-sized adult to use as a place to sleep. I had awareness that it sits lower than some would prefer. My purpose for the purchase of this futon was, although likely not completely unique, also not typical. The need I hoped to meet was having a comfortable raised sleeping space to accommodate a Labrador, Great Dane and Golden Retriever that prefer to cuddle together into one bed....and not have them join the humans in their bed. This products has a faux leather exterior that makes it easy to clean, is relatively durable and creates a comfortable platform, when flattened, that is large enough for all three of my K-9 friends. I would agree with previous reviews that I read that if I was not using it for my pooches, it would be a perfect size for a youth-sized couch. I'm very happy with my purchase.
I recommend this sofa bed as a fashionable furniture piece for an office when you also need a bed. I agree with other people that it's not good for very, very tall people, but it works for average height people. It is well made and I love the contemporary style.
The back of this couch is black and ugly. It doesn't show that in any of the pictures. So it's fine when it is laid down or next to a wall but that was not my intention for it.It also doesn't seem very stable. I'm not sure I would recommend 3 people sitting on it and leaning back while it is in the upright position. You definitely get what you pay for. But it was really cheap, so I guess for the money it isn't that bad.
It's small for you to sleep on if you're taller than 5'2". It is comfortable for a couple of nights, but then you can really start feeling the wood frame in the middle of it. It's a good price and it looks great in my small studio apartment.

I'd say I got what a paid for. It came on time, looks stylish, and was easy to assemble. I already have a couch I use regularly but wanted something guests could sleep on. I rarely use it, which means it'll last a while. I doubt it's of a quality that could withstand habitual use.
This futon is perfect for my 11 year old daughter, but I wouldn't sit on it for long because the legs are not very strong. It was easy to screw the legs on which is hidden in the back zipper. There was a small nick on the side from the transport, but it is hardly noticeable. I love the color and style.
This mini futon is priced well. I use it in our library sort of as a filler. It is not very comfortable, however it looks amazing. It really brought the room together. I have not slept on it as a futon. It is a good size for a smaller person to sleep on though. I am 5"2 and could probably sleep on it fine. My fiance sits and plays the guitar on it. It is under **** so you can't expect perfection. I would purchase this again for another room if needed.
