My husband and I could never agree on our living room furniture until we saw these. We also ordered an additional chair-and-a-half to help fill our living room. The pieces are very wide, so I would definitely suggest taking proper measurements before ordering! They arrived on time and with great care from the delivery company with no damage. We have never had leather furniture before, so I was surprised at how firm the pieces were at first. However, its been two months of use and I love everything about them. They look great, wear well, and we love the chocolate color. The ottoman opens for storage and is very sturdy. The hinges are hidden very well and it looks like one solid piece. We've gotten many compliments on the set.
