I was torn between this and another similar futon which was slightly more expensive. The reviews helped me because they said the other futons legs broke easily. These legs are very thick and sturdy. Extremely easy to put together the unit. It took about a minute total. Functions very easily and looks great. We haven't had it that long, so the jury is still out as to how it will hold up to a bunch of BIG teenage boys throwing themselves on it constantly, but it looks very, very durable, so I have high expectations. Great way to add extra, comfortable seating. Still not sure of the comfort of sleeping on it since no one has yet. I chose an excellent rating so far because it's exceeded my expectation so far. Very reasonable price, very sturdy and attractive. Extremely easy to put together and work.

Returned it!! Thank you for O wonderful customer service. Took care of my issue and sent an RMA right away. Why no other reviewers had an issue with the STRONG Chemical smell?? My whole house stinks because of this futon. Its really small and the back is not finished - only a black lining. I can live with all that because you get what you pay for. Which the price was great, but the smell of chemicals in the plastic was AWFUL that I was afraid it was hazardous to our health.

Purchased this Item 12/29/11 and it took a few days to deliver. It is now 5/30/12, although still giving me something to sit on Its something temporary. Not comfortable to sit on for long periods of time. Not the bet place to take a nap as well, unless you just pass out drunk on it is better than jail. For people that have never been( concrete floors). Once you open it up for a nap you will notice this uncomfortable portion strait down the middle. its very noticeable, its like sleeping on a wedge. its soft on both sides but if in the middle you will suffer. NOT for people over 200lb. Save your money if this product is not for temporary use. Looks Great!!!

This small faux leather couch is perfect for a small office or any small place. If you are tall, the futon feature will not work all that well for you as a bed, as I am only 5'3" and I can just lie down comfortably. It is also pretty low to the ground so sitting may not be comfortable if you are lanky as well. I like how it came fully assembled and right to my door. We were able to bring it to my office in the back of our 7 seater SUV. It is very easy to clean and it's minimal styling makes it look a lot more expensive than it is. I've seen couches in stores for around the same price and this one definitely blows them out of the water in terms of ease and good looks.

this is great for a small appartment. I love the color I use it a a couch, i dont sleep on it. The smell if the faux leather is strong but I have had it for about a week and the smell has decreased. Im happy i bought it. :-)

Versatile and good looking. Hard to tell if it's super dark brown or black but coordinates well with other pieces. Easy to open into a bed. Only complaint is the back of the couch is shorter than expected and it's fine for me but if your 6' tall you're going to feel like you're on kids furniture - although this is sturdy. Easy to move. Easy to assemble. Recommended for small spaces.
This is just what I expected. It's a perfectly serviceable piece of furniture. Is it top quality? No. Is it well made? Pretty much. Does it look nice? Yes. It's what I needed as a bench type sofa, capable of turning into a bed for times when the guest load overflows the guest room (when kids are involved, basically). The smell is negligible, despite what others have said. I can't, actually, smell it unless I lean over and make an effort to. Not a big deal. It will go away. You get what you pay for, and this is something that can be used without me worrying that kids or cats are going to destroy it. If that happens, then I'll toss it and buy something else. Don't worry about it. If it appeals to you, then buy it. It also comes with free shipping, and we got it in a matter of days, already assembled except for the feet. What's not to love here? I don't understand the animosity towards this piece of furniture. It looks exactly like the photograph, for those of you worried about that. And for those of you who complain that it is too small -- the measurements are posted on the site. Get out your tape measures and walk into the room it's going to live in, and figure it out for yourselves. I think it's a great deal. It is what the ad says it is.
I bought this for my husbands office and it looks fantastic!! Was already assembled besides the legs-- which was a very nice surprise! Only issue is my husband is 6'5 and 240lbs so we can all sit on it and lay on it but when he tried it made a crack sound... So the weight issue was a bummer. Product looks nice though!! We like it!
we have a small studio apartment so this is absolutely perfect for us in New York City! When people stay over we just throw a comforter and sheets down and it does the job. It's very small, I don't know how it would look/ fit In a normal size living room but we don't need anything more!
The style, color and functionality of this futon is great. It is a beautiful addition to the living room. However, within the first 2 days one of the legs broke at the base and needs to be screwed back in every other day. Once assembled (easy assembly) the futon is much smaller than what I had thought it would be and very difficult to sleep on. If you are needing something for a small sitting room or for a show room it is great.
I disagree with the other reviewers regarding this piece of furniture. Yes, it is small (but is called a MINI-Futon), but perfect for a small room and I am 5'5" and can sleep on it. It would not fit a tall man, but is okay for the average size person. For $XXX the piece is a great buy: the style is GREAT and CLASSIC. Yes, it does have an odor. But, all inexpensive PLeather products do. I sprayed it with a solution of 10% vinegar and 90% rubbing alcohol 2-3 times a day for a week and most of the odor is gone. If I smell any odor I just spray it down again. It has been a month and I expect after another month all os the smell will be gonw.
I would not recommend sleeping on this everyday, however, is simply fine for my college age son and friends to sleep on in a pinch. He took this to college with him last year, and was used for extra seating and sleeping within his dorm. His dorm became a favorite gathering spot because of it, so it got a lot of use. To me it is not overly comfortable for sleeping, but fine for sitting.
This futon couch arrived quickly after being ordered and looked just like the picture. I had a hard time finding the legs of the sofa; they were zipped inside a secret pouch of the couch, and I don't think that was explained in the directions, but I found them after about five minutes. The couch is easy to clean and keep clean, looks expensive (but isn't), and moves around quite easily.
