The style certainly caught my eye and I love the coloring, but the main reason I was impressed and seriously considered this couch after seeing the photos was a combination of the price and quality: the materials and construction - hardwood frame and made in the USA. It's practical because the back cushions aren't fixed to the sofa frame, so making cleaning/light vacuuming it easy for me. It looks very stylish. It's clean and sophisticated. My living room looks a ton better since I replaced the old sofa set with this and while I only own it for a few months, I think the quality of the frame will last me for a very long time.
