This piece is very nice looking with clean lines. You will not sink in because this is rather firm. I wanted that in the chair anyway, because after some time of use, it's been my observation that couches and chairs suck you in and it's a struggle getting out of the chair.My only problem with the chair was in it's assembly. The instructions are PATHETIC. For those who are planning on buying this piece, there is velcro on the bottom of the back piece that needs to be opened for you to be able to screw on the arm pieces. We spent more time trying to figure out what to do. If there were clear instructions we would have been done setting it up in 15 minutes. This is also why I gave this piece 4 instead of 5 stars.Overall: love this piece!
