I would not use this as a primary sofa in my main living room, but for my husbands office in the basement -- it is abolutely perfect. The fact that it easily opens to a comfortable sleeper is one of the main reasons we chose this sofa. It isn't leather and I don't think it looks or feels like leather, but it's a very nice soft leatherlike fabric that is just fine with me - but don't expect to fool your friends. Overall I would recommend it for the right use and I would buy it again. One thing worth mentioning is that even though it is returnable -- the way they package it for shipping could not possibly be duplicated by a consumer --- it's obviously professionally shrimk wrapped in an industrial setting -- so you will NOT be able to package it for return shipment once you open it. Was a good purchase for us!
Nice once it's together, but if anyone had told me it would be so complicated that the men in our family with average aptitude toward assembling things would shy away from it, I would have never ordered it. Two weeks after it arrived, an industrious fellow in the family showed up and took 2-3 hours to get it together with a little help and lots of ingenuity. Now, It's just fine. Solid and lovely.
This bed is very firm, and not in the way 'firm' is used by the standard mattress industry. The two experiences, in my opinion, are so different that they can't really be compared. Apples to Oranges, I suppose. I knew what to expect, and that I wanted that experience, from the use of a futon chair that I have, which is also an all cotton futon. Best naps ever are now accompanied by best sleep ever. I slept on the mattress alone for about a week, which was great. However, I do like having a small bit of cushion so I put the 3 inch memory foam topper that I had on my previous mattress onto this one. Those two together are fantastic. I used to wake up two or three times a night on my old mattress. I do still occasionally wake up, but far less often, and I fall back to sleep much faster. All in all I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend this to anyone seeking this type of product for a bed or a couch.
Using it in sunroom so that it can double as guestroom. My guests say it's very comfortable. Easy to pull out. Has a cool industrial look to it. We're pleased with this purchase.
