    I measured my 4716 Floor Model today very carefully. Total outside depth, from the front of one of the arms to the middle of the back (deepest points) and it measures 49". Remember this is hand-made furniture and the H&M tolerance value is +/- 2" on production standards.

    Thank you Duane.
    Well, that's quite disturbing news to me...
    However, what I now worry most about is not so much the overall depth but the sitting depth.
    The H&M website states 24" for 'inside depth' - for 46" overall depth sofa.
    Amanda said that her middle seat cushion is ca. 23.5" and a bit more for the side seats - her Sundance is 50" overall depth.

    I know you are very busy these days... but you mentioned in another thread that you were going to take some photos of the Sundance inside your store... - if you happen to grab the measuring tape at the same time and could check the depth of the sitting areas on your new Sundance, I would greatly appreciate it !!!
    Thank you in advance!

    Inside seat depth on my floor model is 22" - but this is brand new out of the box - cushions break in a bit and that will increase.

    Here's photos of the Sundance inside the store....

    Again, Thank you Duane!
    I finally have to admit what everybody knows by now (especially my wonderful husband )... I'm overthinking the whole thing and worry too much

    I'm going to look into H&M pillows, may be a good idea to help with the depth of the seats.

    Btw, I got the leather samples for the ottoman, thank you! We'll be making our final choice over the weekend.

    It wasn't easy... for a day or two we were even considering getting it in Claret Portfolio again... Glad we came to our senses After studying all the crocs / gators / caymans etc. and going through all the possible posts with pictures, my top choices were Cayman Coffee, Old Croc Tortoise, and Cayman Rust. How glad I am that I ordered the samples! Cayman Coffee would be too dark and too flat/matt; from few feet away I could barely make out the pattern. Old Croc Tortoise is very shiny, think patent leather. So it all came back to Duane's first recommendation, Cayman Rust. Thank you, Duane!

    We were also considering removing the casters, but with such a big bench I think the casters will come very handy.
    What a relief to have finally decided on everything... though on the other hand, I know in a day or two I'll miss it LOL No worries, many more projects on their way; still will need to get the wing chairs, and the pillows, and I want to put a rug in front of the sofas.... I know, I know, I should have started with the rug And then everything else for the whole house! Had to promise DH that I'm not going to spend this much time on every single piece, or we won't finish furnishing the house by the time my beloved son goes to college

    One more note regarding the three leathers mentioned above.
    I was worried about using them on the ottoman because they are unprotected... I tried to scratch the samples with my nails but to no avail!
    So no worries!

    I really like that leather choice! Well done! And I think casters are a smart choice as well. I have no idea which leather I would choose for an ottoman to go with our Weston Sand sectional, but I know it would have to be something different...

    Enjoy your continued hunt for a rug, etc.
