I recently purchased a rowhome in Baltimore which tend to run on the narrow side. I was worried about getting furniture that would be too large and take up too much space. Since I'm furnishing an entire home, I was also worried about how costly a living room set would be. This set solved all of my problems. To get 3 pieces to fill out a room for a touch over a grand is unbelievable, and the quality of the materials given the price is absurd. They look far more expensive than what they cost. My first reaction when sitting on them was that they are a little more stiff than they appear they would be, but I find them comfortable and believe they will feel even more so once broken in. Extremely pleased with this purchase.
