Offer: 3-seater reclining sofa (Malone Lower BT7) Gifted - 3-seater reclining sofa (1.9m long) covered in brown faux-leather. The two outer seats recline Bought 4 years ago for £600. It's not been abused, yet the finish/surface is peeling away (see pics) We've attempted repairs by glueing more faux-leather on top, but we now just keep a special sofa-cover on it. The cover was £15-20 online (we're hanging onto that) Pet-free & smoke-free home Would like it picked between now & about 10-days. We'll likely be using it up to it being collected, so I'll need a little warning to disassemble* *It'll not get out the door without at least being partially dismantled. It came in at least 6 pieces, but expect each of the 3 sections can be taken apart.
