We purchased this sofa for our 24 year, old student son, who lives in an apartment. I do not know where to begin raving about this sofa. Modern sofas, typically have a low seat height, this sofa seat is supportive which will NOT allow you to sink into the sofa below your knees like some sofas. This sofa allows you to get up with ease even if your knees are bad. The back is low, something my husband always says he does not like, however this sofa back is firm and comfortable. There was not a mark on the sofa and it was double boxed. Our son at six feet and his five foot two grandmother and everyone between loved the comfort of the sofa. Grandmothers feet sat perfectly on the floor. Visually, well just look at this sofa. There is no assembly involved. The sofa was a chore to get up the two flights of stairs to our sons apartment; the stairs are on the outside of the building so I insisted on leaving the sofa in the box. When my husband and son got the sofa to the top deck, they could not get it in the door with out taking it out of the box. That is when we discovered it was double boxed! If we had known that, my guys would not have any trouble getting it up the stairs. This sofa will fit in any other small apartment that my son may live in later.
