The word I think of when it comes to this sleeper sofa is SUBSTANTIAL. After a disappointing experience with another online furniture retailer, I cut the cord and decided to try Apt2B. As seen in the photos, this was the correct choice. The Cobalt velvet is lovely and the cushions are thick and comfortable. From other reviews, I was expecting a very firm seat, but to me, the feel is soft with a little bounce to it, like a foam mattress. I very much enjoy the depth of the seating. The construction is quality and durable. Customer support was excellent in helping guide me with choices. Thank you, Apt2B. I look forward to future purchases!
