This piece is beyond awesome. It is made of supper soft cushy leather. It has clean lines and is contemporary, but you still kind of sink into it. I lay all over and so do my dogs. It's perfect. 2 things I did not expect but are not problems. 1- Smells kind of funny the first few days. I just opened the windows and let the leather air out. 2- It is a little larger than expected. Luckily I have the room for it, so I just moved one of the side tables to another room so the couch fits. This is a great value. I can't believe I didn't pay over $5,000 for it.
