Crushing on a Couch

8 Apr

I was perusing my Google Reader feed and came across a new post on The Newlywed Diaries.  It had some pictures of home things and then it had a picture of my new amore.

Look at that couch*!  It’s wonderful, it looks comfy, it’s a great shape, great lines, and it’s covered in delicious looking fabric.  I have a serious crush on it.   It looks inviting.  I also love that the end against the wall has a lounge element to it.  I want to grab a book, curl up there and read until I fall asleep under a cream colored throw. 

Also, let’s talk about how brilliant the lighting is.  Because the couch fits snuggly into that space there is no room for a table which means there is no room for a lamp.  SO THEY PUT THE LIGHTS ON THE WALL.  That blew my mind.  You usually only see lights hung by headboards, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the same idea used in a living room.  It’s like a whole new world has opened for me**!

*I am very picky about couches I like.  I hardly ever love couches.  In fact, I have put off buying a couch for the past 10 years because I never see anything I like in my price range.  It’s been hand-me-downs and loveseats this whole time.  I dream of the day I buy and pay for a couch I love.  I imagine that I will have that couch for a very long time. 

**Which is handy because the place I’m getting ready to move into (with my boyfriend… !!!… serious stuff, you guys!… but more on the move later) is going to be tight on space so this might be the perfect solution.
