For the amount of money you're paying for this item, it's an absolutely amazing deal. I've been searching for a loveseat for a while, and it's been so difficult to find one that actually seemed worth the money. I live in NYC in a small apartment, and wanted to give my guests more sitting room without investing in a massive sofa. This does the trick. Not only do the velvet-like cushions and the curved arms give it a look of elegance and class, but it's also very comfortable. It's incredibly sturdy, meaning that I'm able to sit on it while reading a book by myself, or have multiple people lounge on it (some even on the arms!) without worrying about it breaking. Couple that with the fact that it was very easy to assemble by myself, I'd call that a win! Seriously--if you're looking for a loveseat that has the quality and elegance of a huge couch without taking up all of the room (both in your living space and in your wallet), this is the product for you.
