After much deliberation, we decided that the couch we originally purchased was just not meant to live in our basement, so we returned it to the store (it's nice to own a truck). We then began looking for a new couch. Now, I am HUGE about comparison shopping, I love to know I'm getting a good deal. I had done my research and picked the best couch originally. So, we had to start all over, this time looking for something that could come apart, as well as fit our criteria for comfort. Unfortunately, this portability results in a more expensive couch. This is what we ended up with:
It is basically 2 recliners stuck together with a shared armrest. We can now enjoy our home theater surround-sound system in complete comfort.
