I was very hesitant to buy this sofa for months... after reading all the reviews a dozen times, I finally decided to purchase it since it was the cheapest price I'd seen for a sofa of this nature! I have a small apartment, so the size was perfect and I've had a lot of trouble finding an appropriately sized sofa for under $1500. However, it's VERY uncomfortable! It's like sitting on the sidewalk. I'm not sure what the other reviewers meant when they said it takes 2+ hours to assemble! I assembled this with a girlfriend (who's smaller than I am!) in exactly 1 hour. I definitely could not have put this together alone, so you really do need 2 people to assemble it. The 2 bolts at the end were the only thing we had a problem with - you just have to kick and push the right arm piece into position using some muscle power so that these bolts go in (I held the arm piece in the right place while my friend screwed in the last 2 bolts). The pros: Very nice fabric; clean neutral color; perfect size; I can lay across it (I'm 5'7") if I prop my head against one of the arms; looks very expensive and modern, but still has a homey feel because of the color; fast assembly (but definitely requires 2 people) The cons: VERY uncomfortable... I'm considering selling this and just spending $1k on a new sofa from a store, and I've only had it for day now. I mean... it's not just uncomfortable in the sense that you can't lounge on this sofa, it's actually really uncomfortable to sit on! I tried laying down on it with some really cushiony pillows, and it just hurt my neck and back too much... Also, it's not deep enough to really lay on (I'm 5'7" and 110 lbs), even for someone small. Also, the bolster pillows are hideous like everyone said, so I just tossed them out right away. If you plan to sit on this sofa for more than a few minutes a day, I would reconsider buying it...
