I think I found my new couch or at least 2 possibilities.
Let me back up a minute. When I was moving into my apartment 5+ years ago I was fortunate enough to be gifted a couch. I was telling the parents of Princess’ BFF at the time that I need to purchase living room and dining room furniture. They recently bought a couch that they could not get up their stairs and offered it to me.
I agreed, couch unseen. The first time I saw the couch was when I went to pick it up to move it into my apartment. It was not my style but the price was right. 😉
Over the years I bought a slip cover in an attempt to make the couch more attractive, but that proved to be more trouble that it was worth. I was constantly adjusting and tucking the slip cover back in between the cushions so I gave it up all together.
I went looking at couches back in July but didn’t/couldn’t commit to anything. I still continued to
look research as the want/need has not disappeared.
Recently I went to a friend’s new apartment and it inspired me to try to make my place more like a home rather than a pidge podge of hand me down furniture.
I have no decorating skills so I am hoping that new couches would help make the room look like some thought went into it.
I have narrowed it down to 2 different couches. I sent pictures to a couple of my friends and they offered me differing options. 😦 So I thought why not ask you?
The first time I saw this set was in my cousin’s house. It is comfortable. My BFF thinks it looks too formal for my living room. I am not sure where she got that idea from, as it doesn’t look all that formal to me.
A reclining loveseat with cup holders!!! How could one go wrong? Well according to one of my friends the cup holders are exactly why he doesn’t like it. Boo. 😦
The brown couch and loveseat are on sale until the end of the month. My plan is to take the friend whose apartment I like with me to the store and get her opinion.
Until then which set gets your vote?
