Nice, good price, some issues
 from U. S. A.,  Feb 3, 2012

We had it for about a month and are happy with it. We wanted something durable, inexpensive and nice looking for the den and for this purpose, it was good. COLOR -The red color is a warm bright red - not burghundy or dark red - which was fine for our room. ASSEMBLY (the legs) - Be aware the legs were a bit of a chore. It's better if you use a drill to screw them on and don't be surprised if they are a little tough to align properly on the wood frame - which isn't perfect. Once you survive that headache it's actually very sturdy and nice looking. STYLE - The back of most of these "fold flat" couches have a support ledge which this one has as well. The whole back of this couch is covered in a black synthetic fabric so it probably will look better up against the wall, but it's very pretty from the front has lots of seating due to the absence of arms. SLEEPER FUNCTION - We wanted a light sleeper for guests and this does the trick. The fold down mechanism works great and you can even fold down the chair and put all the pieces together for a large bed. OK, not super-duper comfortable but better than sleeping on that bar with a pull out. The ottoman is not as wide as the chair so it doesn't creat a perfect square when you put the pieces together but it works. DURABILITY - I would suggest spraying the couch with a fabric protector like a Scotch Guard which you can get at Home Depot or Lowes, etc. We were happy with microsuede in the past but this fabric is not to stain proof. OVERALL - Happy with the purchase. I shopped around - space saving, good seating with a sleeper that didn't weigh a ton and we wanted something in red. This works and the value was great. I saw slightly higher prices for just the sofa piece and this purchase gave us a set. It really turned out to be pretty sturdy once you get through the assembly. The couch is firm - not soft an cushy like a other sofas so if your looking for a soft sinking cuddly couch, this is not it. But we are happy with it and feel we got a good value.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? OK. Little lighter but within reason.
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. OK. Legs were an issue. Not soft and comfortable like a real couch but the drop down mechanism works great and it looks good. It served our purpose for the den.
  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fairly.
  • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
