Hubby and I have been discussing purchasing new living room furniture a bit later this year. Ok, I have been mostly discussing it and he has been grunting and nodding every now and then. I'm taking that as agreement on his part!! :)
So today, we stopped in at a local furniture store to look around and get some ideas of what we would both like to have gracing our living room for the next several years. No surprise, neither of us really agreed on the same sofa! Hhhmmm. . .
Right now, we have a hand me down sleeper sofa which sags terribly even after several attempts by me to "stuff" it with every available quilt and throw I can get my hands on. It is a tan suede kind of material, or at least that is what it is supposed to be. It has been through the wringer and now is sporting such lovely stains that the actual color is not one recognized on any color wheel that I could locate! In addition, we have a beautiful matching (NOT!!) burgundy colored recliner that sports an equally lovely (again, NOT!!) Indian style throw blanket on the seat to cover up the ripped seam located towards the back of the seat. The poor thing is so rickety that most visitors (thankfully, we have few. . .wonder why that is??) tend to steer away from it and choose the stained sofa as the preferred seating. I would show you pictures of these outstanding pieces, but I don't want to make anyone jealous!
Anyway, I digress. So we are shopping the furniture store with the sales lady trailing behind us, offering her unsolicited advice, plopping our behinds down on any sofa that looked like anything remotely pleasing to us, then proceeding to "yay" or "nay" it. Most of my "yays" were hubby's "nays", and vice versa. Sigh. This is going to be much harder than I anticipated.
Here are a few pictures of some that we may be able to compromise on:
We are thinking of a sage color, but I couldn't find pictures of three of these in the sage color, so just use your imagination. Couch #2, which is the only one of these actually in the sage color in these pictures, is the one hubby liked the best. I haven't made up my mind on my favorite yet.
Decisions, decisions!! I hate them! And then you have to decide on coffee tables and end tables.
That's when I ran out of the store screaming!!
Until next time. . .
