Mel and I just loved the style of these couches and believe it or not they are not old they are modern but look soo great when paired with retro decor. I am not a stickler on remakes of classic designs. I think if it is done right then what is the big deal? I am a big guy and the idea of sitting an a couch with tiny pointy legs with an old structure terrifies me. I wanted something built like a TANK! This set is heavy and well-built. We really think the fabric is soo cool and here are some pictures of them in our home.
