Got the brochure & samples from Simplicity Sofas today. As I expected, I love the Cardinal, and fee meh about the much safer beige/tan/chocolate colors.
Thing is? My Front Room ain’t that big. Yeah, I kinda knew that (REALLY knew that) before, but it’s sinking in a bit more now. So my dreams of an apartment sofa or even a loveseat? A wash. Unless I want to smoooosh everything in…but I swore to myself that this place would be as open as I could make it. Y’know, with furniture folks can sit in. I could just lay poufs around, but that just ain’t me. I love relaxing on the floor, but hate the idea of floor sitting as my – and my guests – *only* option.
Perhaps their Adam chair&1/2? It’s 54′, a good size for the room; it’ll fill the space almost to capacity without the smoosh.
I’ll head out to HomeGoods & other places to see if there’s anything I like as well as I like this one. But to have something oak-sturdy done for me? That can be easily moved? Sounds really good.
Now the whole More Money Than God thing? Is sounding really good. I usually don’t care too much, I’m a gal who is fine as long as I’ve got what I need. But right now a buttload of cash sounds really good. I’d bet there are really great pieces out there for bucks…and I’m not gonna look. Nup.
