The price is great, the shipping was super-fast, the size is perfect and the construction and design are first rate. This piece fits in perfectly with the dimensions and decor of my living room. It is not a slouchy couch, which I am happy about, but it is totally comfy to lie on. I am 5'4 and my son is 5, and we comfortably laid on it (albeit with my legs hanging over the edge) for about 1/2 hour after we put it together today. The color is quite accurate in my opinion, perhaps a bit more sage-y than the picture, so it's even more neutral than expected. The fabric almost feels like a shaved chenille...very soft, with ridges on the diagonal for a little more textural interest. And did I mention that the pillows are a fantastic poppy addition? We just love it...if I were to have had something specially made, it couldn't have been more right. Thank you Angelo and overstock.com. BTW this is BY FAR the best price for this item on the entire web.
