First, as several others had commented, the total length is 81" and not 87" as described. For me, that was fine as it is a better fit for my space. This is the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5. Other than that, it is exactly what I was looking for. The leather is soft and the couch is sturdy. I ordered Valencia Snow and it is absolutely beautiful. I also got the matching chair which is the size as described and very comfortable. I hope both hold up and wear well, but only time will tell. It just arrived last week.
