After reading other reviews for this futon I was a bit skeptical, but decided to purchase it as its the perfect color and size for my studio apartment. It has the look and feel of an actual sofa and is long enough for me to lay on without discomfort. I had a few friends over and the three of us sat on the futon to watch a few episodes of our favorite show — no discomfort at all. Personally, I bought it and would suggest it to be used as a seating option rather than a long term sleeping piece. It isn’t the fluffiest couch, but the cushioning is a lot better than other futons offered by Walmart and this one has a great aesthetic appeal. It easily converts to a bed which I’ll utilize when I have visitors. Seems durable, well made, and definitely looks good for a college-student’s budget.
