Because the place I was moving to wasn't as big as I had spent 2 years planning for the sectional idea went out the window and although I ended up with some really nice leather/sofa bed couches which I have been using for the last 9 years or so, they weren't no sectional!
Now that I will be moving to a house which is almost 3x the size of my condo I finally have room for my sectional! The idea of the perfect couch has been the easy part, actually finding the one I want has been a wee bit difficult.
I had always envisioned a plush, tan colored micro-fiber sectional because they are so cozy but after having a little chat with my friend, blogger and mom Lena I quickly learned why micro-fiber may not be the best choice if you plan on introducing kids into the mix! Although no kids are anywhere near the mix now they are in the eventual picture and so my focus has now shifted to leather.
The house has dark hardwood floors kinda like my place now (see above pic) and off white walls which have wainscoting on them so we wont be painting them. The current owners have black leather there right now but I feel chocolate brown leather is more inviting so I think Ive narrowed my search to dark brown leather sectionals balanced with a cream or grey/tan rug and this amazing Ashley Furniture swivel chair which I love.
The sectional pictured above is from The Brick, my brother has it and its actually really nice its more of a black/brown leather so I'm still on the hunt but at least I have a plan B choice right?
How do you feel about sectionals? Do you own one? Know where I can score a great looking one at an even better price??
Id love to hear your thoughts.
