One reason why it's so hard for me to pick is a sofa is because I have champagne tastes on a beer budget. I also have access (and discounts) to so many furniture companies, the options are daunting. I actually think you'll be surprised at the sofa I've chosen!
Here are my parameters: large and deep with natural linen color, down wrapped cushions and sleek lines.
The "In My Dreams" Sofa: Lee Industries C1296-03
The "Best For Our Budget" Sofa: Savvy Home
Savvy Home is a local store that sells inexpensive furniture. This sofa is around $800 and would have been GREAT for the budget. I really considered getting this sofa to save money, but after a lot of thought I decided against it. We lounge on the sofa every single day so I wanted something that would last. Also, I didn't love the tufting on the seats.
The "Almost" Sofa: Moss Studios
So, here is what I have chosen: The Lounge Sofa from Crate & Barrel!
I really love this sofa. I've been thinking about it every since they came out with this new natural linen-like color and finally decided on this one.
Here are the reasons why I chose this sofa:
The sizing: It's 93" x 46". Yes that is a big ass sofa... but that's exactly what I wanted! I wanted something that felt almost like a bed, that you could just sit back and curl up and watch HBO shows in (they are long shows, but they are our favorite).
The color/fabric: The fabric (Talbot Linen) looks like linen but is a poly/cotton blend... which means SUPER durable. It's the perfect color for our space.
Comfort: The seat cushions are firm (for husband) but down wrapped (for me).. a perfect compromise.
Looks: I love the sleek lines, and it looks good from the side (which is how you see it when you walk into the room).
Price: Aside from the Savvy sofa, this is the most budget friendly choice. I get a designer discount and I also have a $150 gift card. I am a big fan of Crate & Barrel.
So that's our future new sofa! All I need to do is go purchase it ;)
