I needed a couch that was big enough that i could stretch out and get comfy on, but that didnt take up too much space in my small and oddly shaped studio apartment. This couch, with it's super wide cushions and power foot rests, really fits the bill. It's perfectly sized for my apartment and is really comfy. I have already taken many accidental naps on it while watching tv - and my cat loves it too! I'll add that it's also very stylish but still simple enough that it doesn't overpower other pieces in the room (I got it in gray).
