The Couch

Have you ever sat on a couch that was so uncomfortable you would rather sit on the floor?
We had one of those. (Still do, it's just been relocated.)
This particular couch was coming on 50 years old. It is a massive, gross faux-velvet wonder. I did make a slipcover for it nearly 3 years ago.
It's also a hideabed, which makes it incredibly heavy. I don't know how the guys have been okay with moving it around so much.
Don't get me wrong, I really am thankful we even have furniture. It has served its purpose well! The slipcover is pretty beat up now, though, and this couch is not comfortable.
The other side of this is that we didn't have comfortable (or enough) seating when people came over, and the family room is also our movie room.
(We have a loveseat that is now in our basement, which we've turned into a cozy project area.)
It took a bit to find a style both Scott and I agreed on, since we have differences in furniture taste. (He likes traditional furniture, I like a modern/classic look.)
We did find a couch, though, and we are so pleased with it!
Last night we enjoyed a movie while cuddled up on the new couch.
The girls love it too, and we are so pleased with how it fits our space and makes the room so cozy!
