It was so difficult to find a faux leather sofa in dark brown. I had nearly resigned to paying $***** for a matching loveseat and sofa in real leather. The loveseat arrived through normal shipping, but the sofa required special delivery. For us, this was a scheduled delivery to any room we wanted, though this might vary. Interestingly, the arm pieces between the two are identical; only the base is a different piece. Assembly was a bit of a pain - particularly attaching the arms to the body. You have to lift the body vertically while lining up the screw holes. Two or more people are recommended. The construction and quality of the furniture after two months is just fine. There haven't been any holes or tears, and I don't think anything has broken. Nothing indicates this is a value-priced sofa, except of course if you're a leather expert. The bottom seats are interchangeable, but not reversible. The back rests are not interchangeable, nor reversible. I find the comfort to be good, but not great. My wife complains that sometimes when she sits down the back of the couch presses into her back. I can feel this too if I lean back more than a normal sitting position. I think this is because the back cushions are not much taller than the top of the solid back piece. Also, the back cushions are prone to moving somewhat. We haven't tried securing them yet, but I think Velcro would work. Overall, we are happy with the sofa. Perhaps one day we will upgrade to a more comfortable leather sofa, but the price for this furniture is just right for us now.
This sofa is very comfortable and looks great. For the money, you just can't beat it.

I'm very pleased with the quality of product and customer service with Overstock.com. This is an excellent and comfortable couch. Looks just like the photo. The delivery service only delivered one box initially. The arms are in a second box, but the delivery people noticed their mistake and delivered the second box the next day.

This is a small piece. It is very "apartment sized" and not big at all. The back cushion only goes about halfway up my back and I'm 5'6". The back and bottom cushions are not attached. They are good quality and look very nice but I much prefer a larger or even oversize piece that supports my whole back. The dog has not scratched the finish at all and they still look perfect months later. The finish is on the shiny side.
This is a nice piece to add if on a budget, just beware it is an apartment or smaller sofa.. I had to place it across from my other sofa and not beside so that the size difference wasnt as apparent. Comfortable and sits well. Nice color.
