My sweet husband had to lug this couch to our old house (in his hatchback), to a storage locker, to our new house, and up and down the hill four times, but he is a champ, and didn't complain. I used this couch for my Mother's Day mini photo sessions, and I had fully intended to get a few shots of me and the girls, but it was cold and I didn't have time to beautify myself so I didn't. But Zoe said she wanted her pictures taken on the couch too. I told her later, but she wanted right then. So I just humoured her. She was already "dressed up" and all, in her earth day clean up gloves.
