I liked the fact that it looked more like a sofa than a typical futon. It was very easy to put together and seemed sturdy. Additionally, it was much more comfortable than I thought that it would be.
I've had this futon for a little over 3 months now. This futon is very nice looking but that's the only perk that comes with it. It was an incredible pain to put together. It took a very long time to assemble. The futon was fine for the first month then it went downhill. One side of the cushion went soft one day and dented in which makes it very hard to sit comfortably. I have short legs and with the seat sunken in, it's uncomfortable to sit in. The little leg in the front of the futon has also given out and just dangles in its place. This futon fell apart way too fast. It looked so sturdy but did not last very long. I also bought a warranty that was "sold out" once I placed my order so I'm not even able to send back this crappy piece of furniture.
For the price at $250, it is not that bad however it is very hard not very comfortable at all. But will serve for what I need it for at this moment.
