We FINALLY got a new sofa!!
I went on a crazy craigslist rampage and sold our leather sofa/love seat at the start of the summer. Then we purchased a sofa that ended up having to be retured due to a very strong smell of chemicals off-gassing! yuck! (ok...fine...you can blame it ever so slightly on me being a very extra sensitive prego mama, but still....can't be good when your whole house smells like the new sofa!)
Then......along came this beauty.
A perfect floor model (I was specifically looking for a sofa that had been sitting out so that we wouldn't have as much risk of the same smell problem happening again).
And seriously....the comfiest couch ever made!
We went out on a limb and decided to break away from the "safe" colours.....you know...beige, brown, etc. Why NOT have a teal velvet sofa? ;)
Did I mention we got a great deal on it too?
It's a crazy shape, which makes it a little hard to fit into our small living room...but this is the best layout I've tried so far.
The crazy shape is a small price to pay for what is called the "cuddle". Yes....the CUDDLE. It's the glorious little spot on the corner, where you can snuggle right into the couch and put your feet up.
Exactly what this pregnant mama needed ;)
The pink Ikat pillows were an impromptu Home Sense purchase. I'm kind of loving them.
I still haven't sorted out a permanent piece of art, or new mirror for above the mantel....but this will do for now.
On another note...I simply cannot believe that school starts tomorrow......and that I actually have a boy that's old enough to be going!!!
More on this later...
