Palermo, how I hate thee... let me count the ways,

I rarely write reviews, but as a dedicated Frontgate customer (long appreciate the quality), I felt compelled. We have had a Palermo sectional sofa for about 5 months now. I didn't like it when it arrived, and my contempt has only grown.
What I don't like:
- It is extremely lightweight - if you sit down, it moves. The sectional format makes this characteristic terrible - the pieces do not stay aligned at all.
- It comes with clips to keep the pieces together / aligned, but they are plastic and break easily - there were not enough of them to keep the pieces aligned side to side and front to back either (even before they broke).
- It is uncomfortable
- The cushions slide around on top of the frame (exacerbating the lack of alignment) and the cushion backs do not stay neatly in place
- The ottoman piece is just a hair shorter than the sofa pieces - does not look good
- The packaging and delivery experience was awful - we could not get the delivery company to agree to a time and day, just a day - after hours of negotiating through Frontgate, the resolution was that the delivery company would just come and dump the boxes off and we'd take our chances. There were so many boxes, so much Styrofoam.... giant pain all around.
If you are looking for one in bronze with the beige cushions and live in Florida, send me your info - I am ready to get rid of mine!!
We also have the giant chest for storage, it is more solid/heavy and is 'ok'. It gets really hot to the touch and is very difficult to open and close (you have to be strong). But compared to a plastic deck box, it is certainly preferable.
Cons: Appearance, Quality

Side opening width?
I would like to mount it with enough room to let my cat through but not the dog. How wide can the side gaps get? (Is 3 inches the max)
