Shopping!

This week we decided to go couch shopping. We had begun a furniture fund while I was still making good money at my old job and with our first tax refund in years we decided it was time to start looking. Also, since my son, his dog, girlfriend, and girlfriend's dog (whew!) moved out this past January, and our old couch developed wild springs.....it's time.

Old Couch:



We bought this couch used, replaced some cushions, and it served us well, especially while we were into the African theme decor.......





But we've moved on.......



Here are some couches we considered. Which one do you think we decided on?

Mmmm.... I really want to sit in #4. Probably take a nap.

#3 would really pop against the wall colors you have!

je pense que, personnellement, je choisirais le n° 4.
Le n° 1 est bien mais trop sombre à mon goût,
le n° 2, je n'aime pas la matière, froid l'hiver, chaud l'été ou collant !
le n°3, mon ex femme a les mêmes mais en couleur rouge pour le coussins et je n'aime pas trop on n'y est pas bien assis,
Le 4 me plaît bien et semble bien aller avec la tapisserie de chez toi !

I think I like #1 or #4 the best. They seem to match your decor better than the other ones. Besides, they look like the Hound would fit better in them.

I like #3 the best, but I think #4 fits better into your room.

I LOVE number 2!!! We have a cream leather sofa and it's so easy to clean even with the occasional dog slobber.

Where did you go to get a picture of these couches? I'd really Like to know... By the way, I thought number 1 would be awesome!
