We got our sofas!
One snowy day, the delivery guys pulled up in a giant truck and delivered these beautiful babies:
Aren't they sa-weet?
We love the clean, modern, lines, and how much they brighten up the space! Oh, and as for the comfort factor? They're incredibly comfy. And - they came with 8 matching pillows! Wowza! In fact, I found the matching pillows to be a little too much, and proceeded to scatter most of them throughout the house, while putting some new throw pillows on the sofas to tone down the matchy-matchiness a little bit, and make them a bit less formal. And no worries on the white color - we had them stain proofed so anything spilled on them will just wipe right off (and since Barley's hair is white, it'll just blend right in! Score).
Did you notice our other new addition
We bought a couple cheapo chairs from Target while they were on sale with free shipping, after pricing similar chairs at the big furniture chain here, Nebraska Furniture Mart. Let's just say that buying the chairs from Target saved us about 500-900 bucks for the two of them (there's only 1 in the photo - we still have to assemble the second one!). Of course, they may not last as long as their similar buddies at the Mart, but we've always had good luck in the past with Target furniture items so we're willing to give them a go (especially because of how much we're saving), and they seem to be pretty sturdy. Time will tell!
Either way, we love the new furniture! The new chairs and arrangement really seems to open the space up and invite people to sit down and relax, rather than closing them off - like our old gray sofa used to do in the same area. And we think the whole space looks alot more clean and airy and contemporary than the previous arrangement, and the lighter colors really seem to make the space feel larger - even though there's actually more furniture in here than there was before. We love it.
Of course we also love the price we paid for these babies when we compare them to their practically identical twins over at Crate and Barrel. For 2 similar sofas at Crate and Barrel we would've paid over twice as much as what we ended up paying. I sure love me some knock-offs! And once we consider how much we were/are able to sell our old furniture for (which should about cover the price of one sofa), that just makes the bottom line that much sweeter.
So - what's the verdict? Love em? Hate em? Think we're crazy for buying white sofas? Spill the beans!
