The couch has an seamless integrated seat, not cushions. Pictures (including bonus sleepy elderly cat!) inside.

The couch is designed to have no cushions, and the main body is covered with a seamless piece of upholstery. Examples of this style: from Crate and Barrel
(much nicer than mine, different shape) and from Ikea
(basically the same idea, but mine is better). The material has torn away where it meets in the seam between the couch back and the seat. I don't know how to approach a repair for this, if it's possible to have it fixed, or if it would be advisable to just pony up for the cost of reupholstering it (it's a good piece of furniture, and would be worth it).
