It's always a gamble when you order via the internet without seeing in-store first. But this sectional was as described/pictured/reviewed. Great value. Relatively easy to assemble...just follow the instructions...it's just tightening a lot of screws. End product looks sharp, great for small space, functional, can move pieces around to create different configurations, low profile so doesn't block view from inside the apartment. I've only had it a few days so I cannot comment on how it holds up long-term.
