Fortunately for us, our living room is small so it fit perfectly as expected. However, those with medium living rooms need to think twice. And those with large living rooms need to look elsewhere.
The linen is a light beige, perhaps a little lighter than pictured. The saturation is quite low so it leans a little towards grey as well.
The feel of the couch is excellent. The bottom cushions provide full support and have a nice bounce action. The height of the back and arms are perfect height for resting arms and backs. The tufted back, while a little firm, is very comfortable. The curvature of it is very accommodating.
Assembly was simple and done by just myself. It comes in four pieces that you just slide together. The finished piece is rock solid. There are four small wooden legs on the corners and one or two small plastic legs hidden in the middle of the couch. You can not see them in any picture or even in person unless your head is level with the floor, but they provide little extra support.
The couch looks very nice and for the price we paid is an absolute steal. The linen material feels robust and should last for quite a few years. Excellent couch.
I feared this might not be sturdy when I saw the pieces just out of the box. I was wrong; it's a good couch, probably not for someone who likes sinking into fluff and pillows, though. Fine price. I've seen similar (less attractive) couches in stores for $300 more.
