Seems well-made for the price. In fact, I was in a furniture store looking at a similar sleeper of the same size and basic design, and it was quite literally 10x the price of this one. Better materials, I'm sure, but I have a hard time believing that the materials and construction are 10x better than this little sleeper. It's perfect for the upstairs office/guest room we put it in, and it's sturdy and relatively comfortable as both a small sofa and a sleeper. I wouldn't have something from this line as my primary sofa, but it does everything I need it to for where we've put it. Word of caution: this thing is heavy! Best to unpack it and move the pieces separately, especially if you've got narrow stairs. We had no problems at all putting this together with the very clear instructions. Overall, a good purchase. I'd buy it again!
