My partner and I were not very happy with our sofa situation, so we opted to destroy it. While seeking out a replacement we were unsatisfied with the tragically bad seating options made available to us by sofa companies, big and small alike. We weren't sure what we were looking for, but we were pretty sure that Doug from the Sofa Company wasn't going to help us find it. After some deep thought and self discovery we realized that what we wanted was to be low to the ground.
UPDATE: Although we liked what we made, there was room for improvement. We went back to the drawing board and did a series of modifications that ultimately made the thing more comfortable. As a bonus, when put together it doubles as a queen size guest bed.
