Matt H.We love our Eliot sofa in Royale Cobalt/Mocha. Very comfortable but firm. You don’t sink into it at all. Deep seats, so extra pillows are necessary for back support, but makes for a cozy slightly reclined posture. Not vertical and stiff. Long enough to easily lie down to relax. I’m 5’8” and have about 12” space to spare when lying down. We have gotten tons of compliments in the first weeks already.
