Our Review.

With it’s Ektorp-ish design, the Backabro will sit classy in your living room until the time comes for it to transform. While there’s not much covering on arm rests and it’s a bit small to sit on if you’re a taller person the cushions more than make up for this. The back cushions are spongy with ample support and the bottom cushions are firm and bouncy. It is a quietly classic sofa, which is easily turned into an extra sleeper for the odd overnight guest.
