Purchased the Somette Grey 2-door cabinet as an accent piece for my living room. Shipped quickly and arrived well packaged. The piece itself is gorgeous. Color and description were as stated on Overstock. This piece is solid and well built, not to mention gorgeous. The color compliments my weathered grey hardwood and I couldn't be happier.
Seems like a beautiful futon once assembly is done. The shame of it is assembly should have taken less than half the time. The problem is the instructions are unclear, poorly organized, and overly convoluted. Regarding the actual quality; the wood seems solid and the mattress is comfortable. Hopefully the quality matches its appearance and I get at least 5 good years out of it, after all its not exactly a budget college dorm futon. Again I'm pretty good at putting things together and I had help, but once it was done it was clear assembly could have been much easier. If not for the poor instructions I probably would give this futon a 5 stars and I almost gave it 3. Think of all the time that could be saved assembling these futons if Somette spent a few bucks more and hired someone who can write clear step by step instructions with quality illustrations. What a stupid thing to skimp on it ruins part of the experience of getting new furniture.
Futon frame I absolutely love it. It is sturdy and looks, and is, a very nice piece of Furniture. I was considering ordering the larger one for my oldest son. Thank you
Photos very accurate and I like this no-frills sofa. Kind of a pain to put together though with the lousy diagrams supplied. i did it myself and could have used another set of arms (and another brain and set of eyes!). In retrospect I may have gone with the Somette Eli Spacely Peat Suede Daybed Lounger which looks very similar (maybe better) but $100+ cheaper.
