Cheap price and cheaper quality. I have had this futon for 5 months and it has completely ripped at the seams!! It is horrible quality and I cannot believe it is still being sold. Overstock should be ashamed to sell something of this poor quality. Sure they need to have products available in all price ranges, but it does you no good to buy something inexpensive only to have to replace it within months. It is a waste of your money. It is an good looking futon, which is what sucked me in to buying it even after reading the bad reviews. But from the moment you take it out of the box you will know you got less than what you paid. The netting in the back will rip almost immediately (not a big deal you say, because if you have it against a wall no one will notice). I thought the same thing, but that was a sign of things to come. The legs do not screw on tightly. I was seriously concerned that my puppy would go under the couch, my kids would sit on the couch and it would collapse. Not made well at all. Uncomfortable too! Worst of all, the seams all over the seats started to separate within one month. Now, I do have three kids who sat on this couch. But they sat and played video games. They weren't bouncing and jumping on it (I think they would have popped right through the cushions if they would have done that!!). They just sat on it and the seams all ripped and separated. This couch will be thrown out now, just 5 months after purchase. Do not waste your money.
