Okay... so Cason and I have FINALLY decided that enough is enough...
It's time for some living room furniture.
It's been over 2 years since we've owned a couch upstairs... at ALL!
So... overjoyed about our decision, and a bit naive...
We headed out to "Couch Shop!"
Whoo hoo!.... right?
We hit up about 10 different furniture stores and
Really... not ONE SINGLE COUCH "spoke to us"
I mean... we would LOVE to head over to our local Pottery Barn and snag the
"perfect couch" for a cool $2,300 bucks...
But on our budget... that just ain't gonna happen!
What I Want:
I know that I want a light cream colored couch. ALMOST white.
(YES, I have 3 kids... NO, I'm not crazy) lol
This couch will be a "display couch"... a place for all those "pretty pillows,
and for "nice sitting"... when guests come over.
Our living room is the FIRST thing you see and walk into, in our home,
but rarely where we do a lot of "hanging out"
So I'm not too worried about the light color.
We also want a really small sectional (with NO chaise lounge) or just a traditional 3 seater.
So I guess my questions are...
* Have YOU found your perfect couch and WHERE?
* Is Pottery Barn REALLY the ONLY place that makes MY "perfect couch?"
* Does it REALLY have to cost over $1,200 buck-a-roo's?
* And if it does (and we're just dumb virgin couch buyers)...
do you cover it in plastic, after you buy it, so as to NEVER damage it,
because it costs almost as much as your husbands CAR!?!?
lol... okay, don't really answer that last question. ha!
Here are a few of my favorite "sofa inspiration pictures"...

I'm also REALLY drawn to these striped couches.
There's just something about them, right?
I dunno about the colors necessarily, but a thick white and cream stripe???
I think YES! :)
So are we the only ones with a "sofa hold-up?"
Are we just stuck with paying the $500 bucks for the "Pottery Barn look-a-like" from IKEA, that
(from what I read) doesn't have that great of a lifespan, (and from what I see) always looks disheveled and floppy, in the store?
I'd love any advice!
