Looking for a new sofa has been a mission of mine for about a year now. The more I learn about design and the more pictures I see, the more confused I get!
Part of me wanted to go for a beautiful green sofa:
Which is a great neutral color for a sofa, but in the end, I decided to go with a light and airy look.
I tried looking at a few furniture stores but nothing was interesting me. And then one day it hit me as I was looking through a Pottery Barn catalog:
I love this look! I love the clean lines, the freshness, the idea of a neutral sofa that I can just change up the pillows and give the room a whole new look.
I knew I would not feel comfortable buying a sofa online without trying it out. So I went to visit a Pottery Barn store with a ton of questions. And boy am I glad I went!
Too many choices! I tried sitting on a few different styles and was able to knock quite a few off the list because they were very deep cushions (such as the Carlisle Collection) and I knew I did not want that.
What I did know was that I wanted a sofa where the legs of the couch showed to make it more formal. I also knew that I love the rolled arm look and I wanted the brushed canvas in Natural. So here is my new sofa:
It is from the Buchanan Upholstered collection. It comes in both a sofa size (87”) or an apartment sofa size (79”). I am going to measure next to see which size will fit best. Here is the space where it is going:
I love pictures of rooms where the sofa is placed up against the windows. The walls in my living room are currently painted Ben Moore Honeymoon which was pretty but now that I know so much more about color, I am changing the wall color to a soft white. Painting the walls white will let your eye continue on through the windows to the outside instead of stopping at the yellow walls.
