Check out the new couch

Jeff and I have recently purchased a new couch (or sectional as these are called)! Shopping for one was a long process, we looked in at least five different stores. La-Z-boy had several couches that we really liked, but they were too expensive. We ended up making our purchase at Value City Furniture, they had the best selection of modern looking couches that were in our price range. We decided that the “cocoa” color would look best in our living room out of the 5 color options that were available. Here it is:

It is the most comfortable couch ever! Quite an improvement over the old black hand me down ones we had. Our old couch and love seat have made their way down to the basement now. The day I got home and saw the sectional in the living room, my first thought was – “It is way too big!” It is a lot taller and wider than what we previously had and it didn’t look right to me for a while. I am accustomed to the size now and I think it fits the room well.

Now of course after getting the new furniture, I do not like the look of our old coffee table with it. Several years ago we bought that coffee table and it is pretty big because it has storage space and also you can lift up the top of it. I think we will eventually get a new coffee table about half the size of our current one. We just need something more simple in the room. If you are in the market for a coffee table, let me know, I will consider selling it!

You may have noticed the cool new tray on the coffee table too. It was purchased at Pier 1 just this past weekend. It works really well with our color scheme! Jeff and I have a lot more home improvements we are working on this summer including a living room photo wall and updates to our half bathroom, so look for those posts soon!

    very nice! We are currently looking for a sofa/sectional too. I haven’t decided what will fit the space yet. Lots of measuring! It’s always exciting to decorate!…good luck with your picture wall! I wanna see it.

    Nice tray! The sectional is beautiful and I know just what you mean about whenever you get new furniture, its kinda an initial shock. That also happens to us every time we get new furniture—the feeling of “oh its too big!” That was the dismayed feeling I had last fall when the dining room furniture was delivered. The chairs looked so tall, the table looked so much longer than the previous ones–my heart sank to my feet as I thought “WHAT was I THINKING!”
