I took the plunge! I have watched this sofa in stock and sell out for the last six months and finally decided to do it. I've pored over the reviews because I was so nervous about purchasing furniture online. In a small town where there are few furniture stores and the ones available are overpriced, this sofa was a steal. I love the color--definitely more berry crimson than fire engine red. The UPS guy helped us bring it into the house and putting it together took about 30 minutes start to finish. Like someone else said, the fabric feels a bit thin but since you stuff the cushions yourself, replacements down the line shouldn't be a problem. I've only been lounging on it for two days, but I am definitely pleased.
