Looks Great. Is Comfortable.

This sofa looks great and is comfortable. Those are the key features in a couch for me. One complaint is that the square cushions aren't as functional as I'd like. They aren't rigid enough to use as a surface or trust that the remote will stay on it.

My husband and I typically don't like sitting on sofas or couches because they are often soft with puffy pillows that you constantly have to adjust for comfort and looks. Hate that! I also can't stand getting wedged in the cracks of the sofa cushions and not being able to sit "Indian-style" because a sofa isn't deep enough. For this reason, and the fact that in an Brooklyn 1 bedroom apartment you need a guest bed, we've always had a high end futon as our couch. Until now...Having left NYC for greener pastures, and 3 more bedrooms, we needed to get a "real" sofa for our primary living space. (Our beloved and trusty futon has its place on the garden floor of our home now.) Enter The Spencer Sofa by Gus Modern. Tailored lines with one firm bottom cushion and one firm back cushion, rich dark indigo tweed fabric which is simply stunning, a very deep bench with lots of legroom and width for sitting every which way, and the perfect back height to support your shoulders. Love, love, love.If you like firm support, with a mid-century modern edge, I hardly think you can go wrong here.[...] Aces!
