Dave has been complaining for years about how uncomfy our sleeper sofa was at the condo. So we decided new house, new sofa. We hit up all the big furniture places around the area but couldn't find one that was A. comfortable and B. grey. Most sofas come in a light beige and you have to order other colors which could take up to 6 weeks. We were very over sitting on patio furniture and 6 weeks seemed like an eternity. I had been eyeing the West Elm Walton sectional for a while and Dave finally gave. It wasn't too expensive, it was comfortable and it was stocked in the color we wanted. Also we could pick it up from the store that was 5 miles away. We rented a zipcar and since it was a sectional and it came in three pieces Dave took two in the zipcar truck and I took one in his SUV. Easy peasy lemon squeezy (as my kindergartners would say).
I've always wanted a sectional and our living room is plenty big for one, so it made the most sense. We got the new coffee table from C&B and are waiting to get an end table once we find the right one. We definitely need a rug (and hang pictures) to pull things together, but we can't put one down yet since you have to wait a month to put down rugs after you get the floors refinished. Also, I can't find one I like that is not $1,000. Any recommendations for rugs?
Oh, see that white thing on the wall? That is the bottom of an AC unit. Isn't in the best spot? Directly over our new sofa! And..that's a post for another day.
Off to go sit on the very comfortable sofa and relax for a bit. This shopping stuff is wearing me out.
