Love "the Smile" sofa

My logo is "the Smile of 30a" so I plan to use this in a new marketing campaign. It is difficult to handle tho' because there are no handles or ways to grip..when trying to move

this makes me SMILE everytime i see it. i use it indoors and its very comfortable to lounge on sideways. its a lightly textured hard resin plastic, easy to wipe down. i'd recommend getting a sample of the material from Heller so you know exactly what you are getting. it's bulky to move, i scraped mine up a bit, but it still looks great. get your monkey-armed friends to help move it. i LOVE it!
Didn't know it was plastic....
