I'm in Love

Have you ever been in love, but you couldn't be with the object of your affection? And every day feels like a week because you are counting down the minutes until you are once again reunited? Well, that's how I feel. About our new couch.

James and I went shopping last night "just to look" at new couches for our living room. I guess I've been "nesting" or whatever--I've been feeling like we need some nicer things in our home (you know, some things that didn't come from a garage sale for five dollars and have gross yellowed cushioning popping out all over the place, yes couches I'm talking about you). So we went to R.C. Willey with the intent of picking out some plush leather couches that would be classy and comfortable. Comfortable over classy, but class was still a goal. But then we saw this sectional, and sitting on it was like all your dreams coming true at the same time. So soft. So big. So dreamy. Here, I'll show you what I mean:


See? See what I mean? Who wouldn't love that? And no, it's not leather . . . but sometimes love doesn't come in the form you're looking for. But when it comes, it's infinitely better. It's microfiber, so it will clean almost as well as leather, and it will be nicer for guests to sleep on I think.

So, now you know the love story, but it's not quite completed yet. We have to wait a few more weeks for our tax rebate to come in so we can go in and pay the rest of the price and take our beautiful couch home. Until then, I will dream . . . and cross days off the calendar.

oooh I like it! We just got a new couch, too. I know the love you are talking about... :D

That's exactly what Evan and I dream of--but I think our dream is a little smaller--the one that I really want is at Costco. Ekitzel wants it too. I've always wanted microfiber.

I am jealous!!! I am having the I HATE YOU COUCH syndrome right now (it is hideous and apparently a cat thought so too and peed on it)! So now I am attempting to get the pee smell out of it so that I can put a slip cover on it and not have to look at the ugliness!!!

Our couch is same color, fabric, sectional, but much more stiff. It ereally does clean great! Good choice!

Tracie said...

Yay! It looks great. Can't wait to see what it looks like. (Hope it fits ;) )

We bought a sectional very similar to this in New York. It was the MOST COMFORTABLE seating we've every had. The problem with our sectional is it was PERFECT for our New Paltz home...but it never really fit in any other house. They take up a huge amount of space....so you need a "Great Room". We've continued to use the sectional....but just in different rooms! Good Luck!

PS...Happy belated birthday! Sorry we missed a call to you. it was on the list (with a bunch of other stuff that did not get done).

I love it. Can we come and sit on it in on March 7th? Thank you.

How long until you get your tax rebate?!? I'm so excited for you!

It is so nice to finally get furniture that you like. The couches look fantasticly soft--I may have to visit just to get to sleep on the couch. I have heard very good things about microfiber.
