Have been using an Ekornes sofa for years with the long Ottoman, very happy with it. We hang out as a family watching -- I didn't want the regimentation of arms separating everybody, but they are avail. Still have an Ekornes recliner from my bachelor days -- 12 yo and has held up beautifully.
As an aside, at the time I was looking, Fortress was one of the few makers who had 'raisable' arms to create a continuous sofa if you wanted that. Ultimately got the Ekornes, but the Fortress stuff was obviously very high quality.
You can see the back of the Ekornes sofa I have on the pic link in my sig.
