    Mark opens the door of his apartment and sees Kevin sitting in the couch

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Mark opens the door of his apartment and sees Kevin sitting in the couch."

    Thanks.

    It's grammatically correct, but 'on the couch' is far more natural.

    We say 'sitting on the couch', but 'sitting in the armchair'.

    Don't ask me why.
