As a final test, I took an hour long nap face down on the Sumo. (A sacrifice, I know, but I do what I can.) It was quite restful and incredibly relaxing. I now use the Sumo instead of my leather recliner for all my napping. My son insisted on sleeping overnight on the Sumo for a week, so I’m not the only one who enjoys using it for some shut eye.
It’s a bit tough to come up with a downside to the Sumo Couple. The size is a bit of a mixed bag, if you’ll pardon the pun. Though it’s nice to be able to seat two folks in it, moving it from room to room is tough. It’s rather heavy and especially hard to push through a standard sized doorway. At $229, the Sumo Couple seems a bit pricey if you think of it as a bean bag, but it’s much more than that. It’s really a high quality piece of furniture. Looking at it that way, it compares favorably in price to, say, a love seat or large ottoman.
Our initial plan was to keep the Sumo in our garage game room, but we love it so much, we never took it out there. We decided it's too attractive and comfortable to be in a room that isn’t used as often. We’ve rearranged our living room to accommodate it; it's just that good. The Sumo Couple is the most comfortable piece of furniture for extended periods of gaming that I've ever experienced. If you are even considering a similar piece of furniture, do yourself a favor and check out a Sumo first. You'll be glad you did.
