I purchased our Left Arm Avalon sofa along with an accompanying right arm piece. The sofa is used as a stand alone piece to accommodate the user who typically lies back or props themself on the arm to recline.
We are a household of adults who want their own sitting space , so this piece works perfectly for that function and can be easily joined to the right arm chair to extend the sofa seating. We love the color and it is extremely comfortable, firm and cushy at the same time. We have been very happy with our Apt2B purchase! I would not hesitate to order again from them! Excellent craftsmanship!
