They're sheared off, they're supposed to be the same each side to clamp each part of the sofa together
Those clips dont look broken?
Sat on mine as we speak. I'm happy enough with it for £350. In my opinion it looks great, personally I find rattan fairly dated/tacky looking. It's all a matter of personal taste though. I had to send the first one I ordered back for a replacement as the frame was scratched, the cushions had large marks on them and the plastic clips that hold the 2 parts together at the corner were broken. The second arrived with the clips broken in exactly the same place (see attached pic). I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has the same problem. I'm yet to complain to Argos but really can't be arsed to send this one back again because of these two tiny clips!
If you could fit that on an outdoor balcony on a 2* apartment I’d love to see the inside. Or even a 5* apartment for that matter.
Looks like something you find in a 2/3* self catering Mediterranean holiday apartment.
