Our new sofa was delivered this past weekend....and I am in love with it. This was one of our few major furniture purchases that was not an antique (btw, antiques are SO much more affordable than new furniture in my opinion). I always usually go for bargain, yard sale, or second-hand pieces, but we decided we should invest a bit more in a nice sofa.
We found it at Funitureland South in High Point, which, if you have not been there....it is like the quality-wholesale-furniture-at-discount-prices motherload. It will literally take you DAYS to view everything they have. On top of their regular space, they also have a huge outlet center in a separate building. It is crazy. The sofa is Bernhardt brand, a company who has been making furniture for almost a century and a half and, even better, they are located right here in North Carolina!
|I love the linen texture of the fabric|
Now, I am faced with a design dilemma: in which room should it go? The living room? Or the family room/den?
|It currently sits in the living room as pictured here. Shown are the green |
pillows that came with it. I hope to either find or sew different
covers for them.
|This is our family room, and the sofa would actually go on the opposite wall|
of this chair combo. We currently have a different sofa (the one formerly in
the living room) in the spot now. It is covered in black and cream ticking.
I would love your input or any comments that would help me make my decision!
