Overall in good condition. This iconic model from a limited edition presents with a playful incorporation of Disney characters in the form of stuffed animals making up the fabric of the sofa. The stuffed animals are stable and have been professionally cleaned to restore the brightness of their colorful and variegated surface. One button appears to be missing on the seating area; another one is slightly loose but stable. The proper right side with two very faint pink stains to the fabric, the largest measuring approximately 1 1/2 inch wide, and not visible unless closely inspected. The stainless steel legs with faint and minor surface scuffs consistent with gentle use.
