So I am in the market for a new couch. I have been thinking about this for a loooong time. See, my couch is super comfy and was a great deal when I bought it, but it is just NOT my style anymore. Don't you hate that? I find that is a big plush monster in my room.
This is my current couch (excuse the poor lighting- I got home late):
I really want to buy a nice high-quality couch, but I don't want to overspend as it is only a loveseat and not a full couch that will someday fill my future living room in my future home.
I am running into a HUGE problem finding a loveseat though! Every time I fall in love with a couch, it doesn't come in a loveseat, or I don't like the loveseat version. A regular couch can't fit in here- I need something under 70".
Here are three contenders from Structube:
And don't get me started on colour!! Should I go white and match all my furniture? Go colourful? I don't think I want the sandy colour I have now, but what about cream? dark grey? turquoise? BAH! Too many choices!!!
Here are the criteria for future couch that I can cement down:
- On legs (seeing space under furniture adds visual space)
- has arms (I like to LEAN when I'm couching)
- not ikea (I have too much ikea)
- under 70", preferably 65"
- clean lines
- comfy, nappable
- good quality
- under $1000
Optional, but nice, ideas:
- tufted style
- fold out bed
- built in storage
I feel like the couch is stopping me from picking a rug and painting the condo. It's such a key piece- it needs to match the style of my place!! I seriously spent less time buying my condo than I have picking out this damn new couch.
My good friend Lisa over at www.upset-applecart.blogspot.ca just bought a new couch and I am so jealous. She just went shopping one day, found an awesome couch, haggled the price down, and is now sitting pretty (literally). Sigh, I need to just jump in and whip out my Visa.
Is anyone else as useless at committing to furnishings as me??
