  4. Thanks for writing this post! Just ordered the faux leather sofa and cannot wait for the shipment to arrive!

  5. Perfect timing coming across this! How can I know if/which of these is considered a “high back” sofa?

    1. A high back is considered 36″H. Sometimes a sofa will have loose cushions on the back that will go even higher than the frame too, which gives you even more height. xx -B
