WARNING - this is a style over substance item when used as is.
- Limited weight bearing: do to poor engineering/construction design this corner sofa does not support more than one perhaps two people without cracking/creaking/wood splitting.
- Limited outdoor usage: fragility of the wood does not allow for direct exposure to unprotected outside usage.
- Limited longevity: as is, clearly this will not last long (assume 2-3 years).
Usage: We purchased this 1.5 weeks ago (end of May 2021). Three people put it together and three people sat on it. The cracking/splitting of the thin wood slates started immediately. We called a carpenter in to reinforce it (photos) and had four people sit on it with a positive outcome. It is now both stylish and supportive/comfortable.
Note: Given the rapid growth in the Galaxus company and their current scaling difficulties - they are now, more than ever, responsible for the quality of the products they sell. In this instance, with a good product 'base' I would assume that they will go back to the manufacturer and make re-tooling suggestions to correct the flaws on behalf of their clients.
