My New Dwelling Room Couch Has Arrived!


Do y’all even do not forget that I ordered a brand new couch for the lounge? It’s been some time! 😀 I ordered it on January 20, so it’s been about 4.5 months. That’s truly not too dangerous for a customized couch. I ordered the James 2-seat couch upholstered in Galaxy excessive efficiency velvet from Inside Outline. (I’m only a regular buyer. They didn’t give it to me.) I upgraded to the 88-inch size with a bench seat and down various reversible seat cushion.

The colour is barely cooler than I had anticipated. It’s so laborious to decide on one thing giant from a small swatch. However I completely adore it! Listed here are the 2 sofas subsequent to one another. You may see the colour distinction. Our previous couch is darker and hotter in colour. The brand new one is just a little bit lighter and cooler. The brand new one is just three inches wider than the previous one, and so they’re about the identical depth.

However the factor I really like essentially the most in regards to the new one is that it has clear strains. Y’all understand how a lot I really like issues to look neat and tailor-made. I don’t like issues to look slouchy and unstructured. So these again cushions on the previous couch have bothered me for fairly a while now.

These structured again cushions are far more my fashion. Simply have a look at how they get up straight and look so good. No slouch right here!

I really like the look of the again of the couch, which is sweet because it’s the primary a part of the couch to be seen when somebody walks via our entrance door.

The upholstery job on this couch is ideal. The previous couch (which was a fraction of the worth) had a bit that wasn’t pulled taut because it was being stapled into place, and it had wrinkles. I used to be frequently having to clean out the wrinkles. This one has no areas like that. Every little thing is pulled taut, simply as an upholstery job on a customized couch needs to be.

Wanting the opposite route, you’ll be able to see a HUGE distinction within the colours. The previous couch is sort of darkish and nearly has a muddy look to it. The brand new one positively has blue undertones, and has a a lot brighter look to it.

It took me a couple of minutes to get used to the distinction, however I truly love the brightness that the blue undertones give the room. And I really like this cooler grey with the pink curtains and the purple chairs. What I’m not loopy about is the cool grey couch with the grasscloth drawers on the console desk.

I really like the couch with every part else, however these grasscloth drawer fronts are going to must bear a makeover. I’m not fairly certain how I’m going to treatment the state of affairs proper now, however I’ll determine one thing out. What I do know for certain is that these two colours can’t stay collectively in my lounge. 😀

I’m additionally going to have to start out from scratch with discovering throw pillows. Nothing that I had on the earlier couch seems good on this one. I do just like the look of the throw pillow within the image beneath, however I believe it’s approach too small. Although this couch has nearly the identical dimensions because the earlier one, this one appears to require bigger throw pillows. Look how tiny this pillow seems on the brand new couch.

The couch got here with 4 matching pillows. They’re so completely sq. and inflexible, so I assumed they might be used as again pillows, however I don’t love this look. I like to have the ability to see the bigger again pillows.

However clearly, I’m not going to make use of them as throw pillows, both. They’re simply so inflexible, and so they remind me of Chiclet gum minus the enjoyable colours. Whereas I really like my couch to have straight, clear strains, I don’t like my throw pillows to be so inflexible and stand at consideration like that. I like my throw pillows to be fats, stuffed with down and feathers, and karate chopped to interrupt up the straight strains.

So it seems like I gained’t have any want for the right sq. Chiclet pillows, and I would like to seek out some bigger colourful pillows for the brand new couch. I swiped this one from one of many purple chairs simply to get an thought of the dimensions that I would like. This can be a fairly huge pillow, however even it seems too small for this couch. I do like the concept of one thing colourful and vivid with a white background, although.

I’m so excited to lastly have this couch, and much more excited that I can do away with the opposite one which Felicity (our cat) has torn up. She has already tried to scratch on this one, however it’s simply so tough for her to get her claws into it (one purpose I LOVE velvet furnishings), so I’m hoping she’ll lose curiosity in a short time. I do plan to get her one thing new to scratch on, and I’ll put it on the entryway facet of the facet desk subsequent to the couch. I believe if I present her a spot to scratch proper there — one thing that her trimmed and blunt-filed claws can nonetheless truly catch on — she gained’t have a lot curiosity within the couch. So hopefully I can discover one thing that may sit in that spot, and never appear to be an apparent cat scratching put up.
