meet our new couch

I love him. Bench cushions are my favorite, no one has to sit in the crack and as an added bonus, it actually feels like a mattress during nap time its so comfortable. I picked a whitesh fabric, GASP. But its a poly-acrylic blend so it cleans like nobody's business. We already got a giant glob of melted dark chocolate on it and it came out with warm water. The real test is going to be when I spill red wine on it, which I'm sure I will.
I'm a total believer in buying the best sofa you can afford and buy it in a timeless style and color. I ordered mine from Precedent furniture and it hurt, but as they say with quality stuff, it will only hurt once. 
I'm so grateful. I've been wanting a new sofa for so long and Luke wanted to hold off until we could afford to pay for it in cash and it was so hard but now its so worth it. SO glad to be rid of the college sofa and I'm really appreciating this one.

First of all I LOVE LOVE LOVE this new sofa and how you've styled the whole room. Awesome job!

Second, we are right there with you on the pay as we go mentality. Its really hard at first to know you want something so badly and could just throw it on your credit card or use a store payment plan. But you know what? It's the same with clothes and trips, you'll never be satisfied. Could you imagine sitting on this couch and thinking about your next decorating purchase but knowing it can't happen because you're still paying off the couch that's no longer new? No thanks.

I love that theory 'it will only hurt once'. Never heard it before but going to use that to convince myself to invest in more high quality pieces!
Couch is gorgeous, I love the arm shape.
