In almost twenty years of marriage we have had probably a dozen sofas.
With one exception, they all had something in common. They were highly uncomfortable.
The only exception was our “Sam’s Club” leather sofa. That thing was mucho comfy.
We brought it here to go into the guest cottage. But when the movers delivered it, they couldn’t get it through the door. So our super, comfy sofa now lives at one of our mover’s homes. 🙂
Before the delivery day, I had purchased the Ektorp sofa, loveseat and chairs from IKEA for the family room of our house. I loved the way they looked. So light, and bright and airy.
Now, I apologize in advance if any of you have the Ektorp and love it. It is such a great sofa for the money. But comfort is not in this sofa’s vocab. The spring-mark bruises on my family’s butt-cheeks agree. 🙂
So it was back to the drawing board…the Ektorp sofa went into the master bedroom and I love it there. The loveseat and chairs went into the cottage and they are perfect there.
But dadgummit (sorry, my “bama slang” occasionally slips out)…we have had the last of uncomfortable family room sofas. No more.
So we did the most brilliant thing EVER. We went sofa shopping and let the kids pick.
And we ended up with this. A gi-NOR-mous behemoth of a leather sectional with three recliners that will each fit two people in them.
Every bone in my decorator body said no. But my brain and my butt-cheeks said otherwise. 🙂
If lovin’ this sectional is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
Looks like I’m not the only one?
My hubby said that it’s like sitting in a tub of butter. No lie. It is the most comfy sofa ever.
The only problem with it is that the salesperson didn’t warn me about the magic string connecting the recliner and my eyelids. 😉 Once I recline, I’m a goner!
It’s perfect for snuggling up together and watching our favorite show Swamp People on the History Channel.
Have you seen it? Who is your favorite person? Mine is Troy. I just love him. “Choot it, Elizabeth!”
So there is a happy ending to the sofa saga. And they all lived happily ever after.
Come back tomorrow for the tour of our finally finished family room. Say that three times fast!
