When I was pregnant with Satchel, my mom and I went to Goldsmith's and bought a nice, green sofa, chair, and ottoman. They were extremely comfortable and I thought they would be something Warren would like.
I was wrong.
There's a chance that he might have liked them if I bothered to consult him before purchasing them. But I did not.
And I've been hearing about it for six years.
So, I told him that once we sold the house we would pick out a new sofa together. We both agreed it would be cool to get a red leather sofa. Having a common vision, we thought it would be an easy purchase.
So, now instead of just consulting each other, we're consulting you, the Internet. Please weigh in.
We were initially drawn to this one, but it just seems so red. And it seems like if you get a red sofa, you should accent with black. Currently, we have chocolate brown walls in our livingroom that we like very much.
We both really like the way this one looks. It's pretty comfortable to sit in, but neither one of us thinks we could lounge in front of the TV or take a nap on it.
Yep, that's Jiro sipping a Root Beer on it! Right there in the store! Oh my god, what if he tries to eat or drink near it at home?
It even comes in red.
Surprisingly, this is the one that keeps tapping me on the shoulder and waving from the back of the room. Look at me! Look at me! It is very comfortable. Comfortable enough to nap on. The official color is wasabi, which of course, I think is cool. We currently have a green sofa, so I think I could live with the color. Also our fireplace has pale green tiles. It could work. Warren's main concern in that the kids will break out the black Sharpies when we aren't looking.
We could get it in another color, but it would take four months.
Warren hasn't actually seen this one in person. Yet. It's at Sensational Sofas and comes in like 50 different colors. You can choose between microfiber and microvelour, both of which are super soft and stain resistant. Like the fabric was developed at NASA stain resistant. It's also very comfy. And soft. Did I already mention that? (Looking at the pic it seems like a loveseat b/c of the two cushions, but it is a full size sofa.)
Here's a sampling of the available colors--a 30 day turnaround on special orders. I have no idea what color we'd get. I actually like the white. But that's just crazy talk. I also like chocolate brown, dark red, and, of course, green. But hey, I could do something crazy like orange or baby blue.
The main issue is that it doesn't come in leather. I suggested that we get a leather captain's chair or something else leathery to go with it.
So Internet, what do you think?
