Once it's set up and in its place, reviewers adore the lustrous upholstery, generous size, and comfortable (not rock-hard!) cushions of this velvet sofa.
• Width: 76-133 inches

Velvet is just one of the many materials offered, and you can order free swatches of anything that catches your eye.
The end result will be a cozy, supportive, and beautiful centerpiece sofa made just for you. Just keep in mind that it could take several months for this custom-made seat to arrive at your door.

This velvet sofa is also plenty convenient for small-space dwellers who want to be good hosts to their friends. The back of this sofa tilts down flat to turn it into a sleep surface that's right between a twin and full-sized bed. It can accommodate one or two sleepers.
