This couch was given to us by my fiance's grandmother. It was gently used. Then it all started to go down hill when one of the buttons popped off and our Coonhound decided he wanted to see what was inside. Since then more buttons have popped off and the handle for the recliner on one side came off in our daughter's hand a couple months ago. I guess the ware and tare of kids and dogs was just too much for this couch made of tweed. This is by far the ugliest couch I have seen!
