New Couch on the Block

On Tuesday I made an impulsive decision...not just for me, but for my family...I bought us a new sofa! You see, since we only have one living space...and one sofa in that space...the sofa is a very big deal around here.

We bought our old sofa over 5 years ago now from Macy's. It's pretty much a knockoff of Crate & Barrel's Petrie at half the price. It saw us through 4 homes and a cross country move; even in the end we still loved it. It was just time for something a little more grown up, a little more masculine in my opinion. See, all of the other furniture we have in the room has got a Midcentury vibe to it and I wanted something a little fuller to balance out the mix.

Leather has been on my mind for some time now and when I found an amazing tufted back, rolled arm, high end Bloomingdale's sofa on CL for a fraction of what we paid for our original sofa I jumped at the chance...

Sorry for the iPhone pics and lack of styling, but you get the idea. Now onto grab some velvet pillows and switch a few other things around in the room and I'll be ready to show you the full view : ).

More leather goodness for your viewing pleasure...
