I'm very happy with my Braxton. It's pretty firm, which makes it comfortable to lounge in for a long time, but it's soft enough to be welcoming. And it's long enough for all 6'2" of me to lie down on comfortably. The round end pillows are nice and soft, but the end pieces are also padded - more firmly, but soft enough. I can lay on this like a chaise and still be comfy.
We love Eliot Sectional Couch... color was spot on, fabric feels great, fits well and easy to move when/if needed. My only gripe is the buttons on the seating cushions. The buttons have so much slack when sitting that they can hurt you since they flip over. Also, I fear that they will get 'unhooked' in due time. :( Not sure if there is a good way to solve this but I've never experienced anything like this before...
This couch fits my room perfectly and is very comfortable to sit on or take the occasional nap. I have had the couch for six months and so far it has held up well. The only problem was a few seams that weren't completed during production and so soon showed signs of pulling out and opening. Joybird sent a "technician" out that completely corrected this issue. Everyone enjoys the couch and it's one of my favorite places to lounge with a book.
I was a little worried ordering a couch I had never sat on. The minute it was delivered that worry disappeared. It is a beautiful couch and the sleeper is just as perfect for guests staying the night. The only drawback is that the chaise cushion moves away from the frame a bit after a few uses. Nothing terrible or hard to rectify other than pushing it back in place. I am truly in love with this piece!
