After selling our old couch on an impulse, we set a record for fastest Smith-decision ever by immediately agreeing on a new one. Sure we did briefly debate a few Ikea options (this and this) and even fantasized about some dream sofas... but we quickly settled on this guy which was a perfect size, comfortable, fit our style and our budget, and had an option for a great in-house stain protection plan (yeah, that was key!). We got the very last one in stock which meant we only spent about a week futon surfing. I'm truthfully shocked by how easy it all was because hemming, hawing, and general debating are pretty gigantic pastimes around here.
Of course I am such a nut about any kind of change that when the couch actually arrived I felt like an alien spacecraft had taken over our living room and I wasn't quite sure. Once Little Smith broke it in with a few head stands I started to relax and now we are all enjoying it thoroughly. It's always fun to have that spice of something new around the house!
