What the heck right?
Splurge a little.
We have been married for ten years this May, so it is about time I get to buy a sofa, right… not premature. (I’ve never bought a “new” anything… accept an ottoman I got for cost during my internship in college, I have been patient)
I have been around to a million “sofa” places over the last few years, and never really seen anything that I like- well, I should say that I would be willing to fork over the cash for. I do not want a large sofa, nothing overstuffed… which is EVERYWHERE- seriously the only thing I have seen in all those big box stores. They say everything is bigger in Texas, and seriously scale wise there is nothing that you would call small. So, I have had a hard time locating a decently priced version of something I want.
I also have these prejudices against cheap disposable furniture and dreams of 8 way hand tied, down-insert, kiln-dried hard wood framed, heirloom quality pieces… Basically I need to find a real sofa manufacturer, and I used to have some good sources when I worked for a designer, but I don’t have those now….
Which means, I have been looking around online, and was wondering what your opinions are of some of the sofa’s I like, not sure if the one I will buy is in this lot- or how soon we will buy it… I need the cash first, which I just spent on the new flooring OOPS!
OR if you have some good sources for properly built sofas for a reasonable price, I would love to hear about them. Either that, or I need to find some auctions/estate sales of antique heirloom pieces…
But anyway here are the sofa “looks” that I like, I am not sure they meet all my standards, but I like the look.. They would be done in a neutral color, no print…
(the number is under the picture, just FYI)
