Give Me All The Tuft

Give Me All The Tuft

A couple months ago we decided it was time to invest in new furniture. It actually came after we hosted a Christmas Party in December. We were so disappointed in the amount of seating we had to offer our guests. We discussed our options, and ultimately resolved that turning our oversized Dining Room into a half Living Room/half Dining Room was the best option. It would double our current seating and give us a second living area to nestle up in. So began the search for new furniture. The plan was to get a new sofa and chair for the existing living room and use the old stuff for the new living/dining room.

We don’t have a ton of new furniture. I usually just buy ugly cheap used stuff and throw a nice slipcover on it. So, the experience of furniture shopping was relatively new to me. I’m here to tell you with confidence, I hate it.

It’s stressful. There are far too many options in sofa land. Far too many. The other snafu we ran into was our doorways. We have what the furniture people refer to as dead walls. And tiny 100 year old doorways. So these big giant sofas I kept falling in love with would up measuring WAY TOO big to fit in our door.

I finally found a sofa that I not only LOVED, but would also FIT so I could actually sit on it inside my house…..and not in the yard because there was no way to get in. It had the classic timeless look I knew I wanted. My style has changed more than I’ve changed underwear in the last decade, so I knew a classic sofa was the only way to go.

She has lots of tufted deliciousness that makes me drool. Her legs are a thing of beauty. The color is perfection.

We also picked up her sister, the giant wingback chair. I have a thing for wingbacks. This makes #5 in my house. Wow. Typing that makes me realize it’s actually a bigger problem than I had realized. Anyway, it has this gorgeous railhead trim that makes me swoon.

And the cherry on top of it all, is that it’s all actually extremely comfortable to sit on. Yay!

I’ll post the new living area soon! 🙂

    Love!! What is it with the ginormous and uncomfortable furniture these days?!?? I can totally empathize with getting modern furniture to fit into an antique house AND actually be comfortable. I guess it’s all about how it looks and not feels to these designers. Can’t count the amount of times I’ve run over to a beautifully shaped couch so excited and sat down on a rock….
    The room looks amaz!

    I love these pieces and your entire living room! Can you tell me what store the couch came from? Or what brand it is? We are currently couch shopping and it makes my head hurt looking at the stores! Way too many ugly, uncomfortable couches!!! ?
