I did a lot of research on sofas before making a purchase and I'm happy I finally decided on this sofa! The color is a pale aqua blue, the cushions are comfy, and the assembly was pretty simple to do on your own. Now, for the people who are complaining about the back of this sofa, don't mind them too much. There is a cover attached to the back pillow cases that velcros to the bottom of the back and therefore covers the black bars, so it doesn't look bad from the back at all if you need to put the sofa in the middle of your living room. The free shipping was fantastic for such a large piece of furniture, and it got here in 4 days!

At the price point of $350 this is not bad. The color is beautiful, it is comfortable and the only drawback is from behind it has a less expensive look due to the metal frame in back. This is not a piece you can leave with the back exposed.

I am giving it a four stars because I haven't actually used the couch just yet so can't really give 5. I put together this couch in about 2 hours by myself (i am girl). The instructions that came with the couch were easy to follow and everything matched up where it should. There were two tricky installation points -- 1) when installing the center bar frame, by then you have already connected both left and right arms of the couch as well as the main frame of it. The center bar does not fall nicely into the middle and you must craftily slide in on one side and expand the other side as you slowly hit it into place. It fits very snugly once you get it in. 2) one of the last final steps is to place the main frame of the sitting area on top of the center frame. There is one screw for each side that needs to match up to the existing frame. if you place it directly in so it fits perfectly where it is supposed to, you'll notice that the whole does not match up. I lined it so the whole matches and placed the screws and tightened it enough so it stays but still giving it wiggle room. Then I slowly use the frame to fit. This will make more sense when installing. Overall, I think for the price, this couch is great for the money. It's comfortable so far and a great color to add to a room. I would recommend this to others.

We bought this to replace a huge brand name (expensive!) sofa that just did not hold up. This sofa is so cute and a great bargain! It took two adults about an hour to put together with a little difficulty in making everything line up correctly, but it looks great for the price. Will agree with others that the color is a little less vibrant than the picture looks, but we've received tons of compliments on the color. The cushions are a bit firm, but after our old saggy couch, we don't care! Be forewarned that the back cushions do no come off -- the cover is one piece that you stuff with what is essentially batting. Bottom line -- a little quirky but a heck of a bargain.
Cheap but cute

Decent little couch for the price. Basically a futon frame with big seat cushion. The back pillows are all one piece along with the back of the couch. You stuff three roughly hewn cushions in, zip it up, slip if over the back frame, and pull it down firmly to attach the back to the Velcro at the bottom of the frame. I assembled it on my own, but it would have taken 25 minutes with another person rather than close to an hour and a half. The couch is a lighter blue than it appears in the photo, where to me it looks a bit bolder. This is more of a light-- maybe even dusty--slightly aqua blue. It's not far off, but enough that I was mildly surprised when I opened the box. Looks nice and is firm but comfortable.
Great for awkward apartment layouts
Alison from Burlington, VT – Verified Buyer
We've had this little sofa for about 6 months now. We live in an apartment on the top floor of a very old 19th century house and needed a couch that we could maneuver through narrow doorways and sharp corners and assemble on the spot. This was exactly what we were looking for. The color is adorable and goes with almost any color scheme, the size is great for a narrow living room, and it is relatively comfortable for the price. It is very small and not ideal for guests to sleep on, but the very plush back cushions compensate for that. The main reason I gave it four stars is because, after everyday use, one of the seams connecting the back cushion to the frame of the couch is beginning to come apart. We do not expect the sofa to last very long, but it is a great temporary first couch for our temporary first apartment!

I love this sofa!! I received my sofa within 5 days of placing my order. I promptly started putting it together. It took me a couple of hours because there are so many screws, nuts, and bolts. I'm a 62 year old woman and had no trouble, if I can do it anyone can. Nothing complicated. I only wish the cushions were reversible incase they get soiled on one side..
Plush loveseat with 2 defective parts
Kimberly from Chicago – Verified Buyer
This couch looks nice when it is full put together. It is a small couch designed for small apartments, more like the size of a giant love seat. When I screwed the brackets to the arms, one of the metal sleeves in the screw hole on the arm was jammed, a defective part. I could not get the screw out of it and when I unscrewed both the sleeve and the screw came out of an open hole. I went to the hardware store where I was able to buy the same size screw and a shorter metal sleeve for 1.60. They advise me to glue the piece into the couch arm and wait 24 hours for the glue to dry. I did this, replaced the metal sleeve and successfully finished attaching the bracket to the arm. I discovered the same problem where the stabilizer bar is screwed to the front of the couch on one side. In one screw hole the metal sleeve was missing and the screw had nothing to catch with grooves and fell out. The replacements of these basic parts was easy, but they should have not been defective in the first place. Inexpensive couches today normally require assembly. The cheap metal frame reminded me or cheap futon frames, but the material covers it up. In the end, the couch looks acceptable and was good as a bargain price deal, but it made me appreciate American made couches.

Received the couch within a week of order, despite the storms roaming around the eastern corridor of the US. It piece was easy to assemble, looks great and I love the firm seat cushions (that's just a preference...I prefer to have support when I sit). The color is perfect for my place and the size works really well in a small apartment. Note - you will need at least one more person to help assemble the couch. Not a lot of parts, but some of the assembling is awkward and needs more than one set of hands. Still, pretty easy as far as assembling furniture from a box goes. Really happy with this purchase!
Valerie from Guntersville, AL – Verified Buyer
This couch is kind of small but really a beautiful color. Not the softest thing I've ever sat on either, but it looks perfect in our living room with a striped gray throw blanket. It does take a bit of assembly, but it wasn't difficult. My husband and I did it together in about 20 minutes. Do give the pillows some time to expand. There's a note in the box about this and it's right. They look a bit rumpled at first because they were compressed for so long, but plump up nicely on their own in a bit of time. Now I just wish I'd gotten two! Pros: Color, soft fabric, easy to assemble Cons: Not the softest seat in the house
