Nearly six weeks ago me and Mr S embarked on our 3rd trip to the sofa.com showroom in Chelsea. This time with the intention of actually deciding and ordering new sofas for our newly decorated living room (I’ll share more on this later). We have been a couple of times before and enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee and lounging around on their very cosy sofas. The hard bit was choosing the one. I have spent hours online before we went for the first time and already had my eyes on their Snowdrop sofa with it’s traditional look and cute turned feet.
It has nearly become a tradition with me to never stick with what I originally chose and it was soon decided that the cushion back Bluebell was more our style and if it is at all possible even comfier.
Once we had the style sorted it was down to the endless choice of material. We have provisionally settled on the pigeon coloured herringbone but there were more colours in the game then and it was decided that choosing the colour will require another visit. You can see they are all pretty neutral colours apart from the hyacinth highland tweed.
From this point it has taken another two visits, two more cups of coffee and stacking boxes into sofa shapes to check the sizes before we were ready to part with some cash and place the order. It was a really good idea to use our moving boxes (of which we have tons) to give us a better idea of how the sofas are going to look in our living room. Before we’ve done this we were thinking of getting a four seat and a a two and half seat sofas but that would result in blocking at least one door off and a major problem. In the end we are having a four seat and a cosy love seat which is still quite easy for two people to share without getting too close for comfort…and the colour – to be revealed on Thursday when these two lovelies arrive.
