I’ve been looking at a couch like this for at least a year… I was hesitant as it’s a big investment. We have 4 kids, and rainy days on the west coast can seem endless. We took the plunge – and I am SO GLAD we did! We just got it today, so I can’t speak to longevity, but… my kids have done gymnastics, made thrones, made a “tv” to report the news… all in the past hour. I love that I’m supporting a local company. I will be enthusiastically recommending to friends!
