Overall in very good condition. This set which includes a sofa and matching ottoman includes stuffed pandas that are stable and have been professionally cleaned to restore their original brightness and soft surface. Both elements present with well-preserved stuffed toy elements and very light surface soiling in the form of green and orange paint residue, concentrated to the seating and backrest areas and not visually distracting. The stainless steel legs with faint and minor surface scuffs consistent with gentle use.
