I’m on the hunt for the perfect sofa.
We’ve had our couch for about four years now. We bought it before we even had a home to put it in and I was set on having a sectional…in dark brown. It wasn’t necessarily the worst idea ever as much as it just doesn’t work for us anymore. My style has changed plus we now have a toddler!
Since we’ve haven’t had our sofa too long I looked into just getting it reupholstered. The color is too dark and the fabric isn’t very forgiving when my two year old smears her yogurt hands all over the cushions. 🙂 I called a half a dozen local places and was shocked and horrified at how expensive it is to reupholster! The cost would have been just a bit over what we paid for the couch. I had no idea reupholstery was so pricey! I thought about reupholstering the sofa myself
for about five minutes, or even sewing a slip cover. Then, I started looking around at different sofas and thought I would save myself the trouble (and needle pricks).
So the sofa searching begins…
My first instinct is to go with some classic and simple like this neutral.
Then, I want to be brave and go for something with more character like this chesterfield. I am dying over this chesterfield guys.
The modern look and clean lines of this concave arm modern sofa caught my eye and I can see myself loving this beauty for a long time. And the color and texture of the fabric will be much more compatible with my child and her messy nature.
Similar to the other concave arm sofa, I love the lines. I think I like the three cushions as opposed to the two and this color is stunning as well.
The uptown modern sofa isn’t my typical style but I’m so drawn to it. I love it but I think it would be challenging to work it in my home.
When I started looking for a sofa my first instinct was to go snag the IKEA Ektorp slipcovered sofa. I know, it’s white – I was unsure about that too. Do I really want to constantly be washing slipcovers? I could always go for the Svanby Gray slipcovers but they are a bit darker than what I would like. It’s on the list while I think it over.
So which is your favorite? Do you have a sofa you love? Please please share!!
