Couch Surfing

I'm taking my sweet, slow time to pick out the perfect couch. Inadvertently this allows my youngest dog more time to get past his blanket chewing stage, so hey, it all happens at the right time huh?

So far I'm really feeling this sofa...

From Designer Sofas Direct, Madera. It has the tapered legs I'm looking for, simple lines, low armrests. But I do wish it had little wheels on the legs. I could always add them though. This baby starts at a mere $599. Not sure about shipping yet. I ordered a few swatches of indigo fabric but none of them are "the one". More options are on the way.

I really wish I could order this sofa...

 From Sofa.com. But they only deliver to the UK. The color, the velvet, the wheels, the legs. It's perfect!

I am considering checking out some of the lighter blue options though. I just want to make sure my living room stays light, airy, and fresh. So I want to be very mindful of all my fabric, pattern, and texture choices.


Jenna Lyons has one in lighter blue. But then again my dogs are messy as evidenced by my current light colored couch, so maybe dark is the way to go?


Maybe an in between blue like this beauty I posted earlier. I love this color with the purple. And you know I'm a huge fan of purple!

One thing is for sure it must have some sort of velvetyness. This couch from Crate and Barrel is a micro-fiber velvet. Has anyone ever touched to know if it's nice?

But as Cote Provence reminded me, there are nicer sofas for waaaaaay cheaper than $1600. Thanks for the reality check!

Does anyone else find that when they have the perfect vision in their mind of what they want, you almost never see the perfect thing to match your vision? I feel like this all the time! Maybe I'm picky, maybe I'm particular, but at least I know what I want!

Here's some more pretty sofa pictures for your optical pleasure!





Happy hump day!

I love the light blue velvet couch with the purple pillows. How lush and comfy. I have had a purple microfiber couch for the last 8 years and it's great. It's starting to get kind of old and gross at this point but has lasted quite a while. Microfiber is soft to the touch but thinner, not as lush as velvet.
