We have had this couch and matching ottoman for one year now. It is in my children's play room. Easy to assemble. Looks great. The cushions were a little hard at first. It does a very good impression of real leather. All my friends and family were shocked when I told them it was vinyl. The real reason why I'm writing this is to say, this couch is very sturdy and has withstood a year of multiple kids standing on the back, jumping on the cushions, standing on the arms and down right abusing it. It still looks great. This is why I would recommend this couch.
