The couch arrived promptly and well-packaged. It was easy to put together. It is a lovely color without being too bright and looks good. I had no problems, unlike some other reviewers, in stuffing the pillows into their covers. You do have to pay attention to shape, since the end pillow covers are slightly flared outwards and the middle is not -- and you can't flip them because all three are sewn together. Just find the same-shaped pillow to stuff into the pillow cover. I wanted a couch that did not have deep seating since I am rather short-legged, but this is actually shorter than I expected (from back to front). The couch is fairly stiff to sit on but I imagine that will ease with use. The packaging was exceptional and many of the bolts were pre-fitted into the right holes, which make it foolproof to assemble. I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 just because of personal preference -- I think it could be more comfortable -- but then, I have only sat on it a week.
