The Couch to End All Couches — No For Real.

October 2, 2014

The time has finally come to debut the Couch of Compromise. Drum roll please…. 


She’s a real beauty.

 The couch is this one from Lee Industries in Jefferson Cream. My beautiful chairs are also Lee as well. Lee Industries makes great products and, while they are pricey, they are worth the investment.


 See how fluffy and full the cushions are? I decided to splurge on the upgraded filling for the cushions and it was a great decision. The sofa is so comfortable and plush without sucking you in. How awkward is it when you are at a party and you get stuck in the couch?

 Wilson bought and arranged these tulips. Good husband.

The view from the other side of the room. Why is it pitch-black dark outside, you ask? Because I’m writing this at 6:12AM. It’s early.

 The beauty shot of the fabric. It’s a little lighter and more oatmeal than in the photo, but at 6 AM in the morning, you take what light you can get. It’s a beautiful thick weave that will — hopefully — stand the test of time. And withstand the husband, who is like a bull in a china shop.

 The other corner of the room. Remember those pillows that used to be on the disgusting outdated leather couch we had? They now are perfect floor pillows.

 So, what do you think? Leave me a comment so we can chat about this couch situation. I’m really in to it. 

Happy Thursday!

    Love this! What did you do with the matching pillows that came with the couch?

      They are in a closet 🙂 I wanted to add something interesting to all of the beige!

    Gorgeous, as always. What’s the secret to keeping it clean! I need big time help in this area. Three kids don’t do a sofa good. 🙂

      Good question. I had the chairs stainguarded but haven’t done that yet for the couch — it’s on my list of things to do. BUT — when the couch was delivered one of the delivery guys got some dirt on it. He got it out super easily with rubbing alcohol! He said that’s usually what he uses…

    I have couch envy…..seriously. But if I bought that it would swallow up my Brooklyn shoebox, um, er, studio. Sigh. One day I will again have an apt with more than one room!

    Love it! Reminds me a lot of my couch from RH. I lucked out that my boyfriend had just purchased a beige linen couch all on his own right before we started dating. The old leather couch (why does EVERY boy have one?!) was already living in the study, and he just unloaded it on Craigslist. Can I get an AMEN?!

      OMG AMEN! Seriously, why does every 20-something guy own a leather couch? Did they have a secret meeting of the minds and decide that leather was the way to go for their most-used piece of furniture? I just don’t understand. But I’m glad that leather couch is out of both of our lives! #99problemsbutaleathercouchaintone

    It looks beautiful. How do you feel about it two years after purchase? Are you still happy with the cushions? You said you splurged on the upgraded filling. Do you know what type of Lee cushion you ended up getting for your sofa? Would you make the same purchase again?

      Hi Tracie — it’s so funny you are asking about how I like my splurge couch almost two years after the fact as I was thinking about that the other day. I was having company come over and decided that after two years I was going to flip all of the cushions around (they are clipped on to the actual couch itself and it is a bit of an event to flip all of them, or else I’d do it weekly). I flipped them all, and what do you know — it looks like a brand new couch. And before the cushions were flipped, it still looked amazing. I absolutely love it and will definitely buy another Lee couch when the time comes, which won’t be for quite some time given the little wear and tear. I can’t remember the type of cushion I got, I just remember I paid extra for the nicer, fluffier cushions, which was worth it. They fluff up perfectly with a little shake.

      Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for reading!
