I don't personally own this sofa, but my therapist recently replaced his old, dirty sofa with this new one, and so I do use this sofa on a weekly basis. In case you are wondering how I know that this is the same sofa, he told me that he bought it from Overstock, and I am almost positive this is the sofa. Imagine a firm sofa. Now imagine it even firmer. That's what this sofa is. As I told my therapist, I could imagine this sofa being used like you would use an office chair. It might be fine if you had a desk sitting at it and were doing some work. But it's not a sofa for getting comfortable and lying back. It's more bench-like in its comfort. My therapist said that opinions on it from his other clients have been mixed, but that his patients with bad backs like itpresumably because of the easy in-and-out or perhaps because the back of it is very firm. For myself, I would rather have the old, dirty sofa that is now in the waiting room. This sofa is not conducive to letting one's thoughts flow. It might be fine for quick meetings where you don't intend for your guests to stay long. I could also see it in more industrial locations, like a lobby. The one positive I did tell my therapist is that it seems like it should easily clean up with a rag.
