Friday Finds... Couches and Guest Post

Happy Friday!  

Thank you for all of the encouragement with the house and the kind comments over the couple of weeks!  I really appreciate all of you sticking with me through my DIY slump and constant chatter about my new house!  It really makes me want to take time out of my day to sit down and write this blog!  Ok... enough sappy stuff and moving onto more house stuff!  HA!

Hopefully soon I will have a family room and a living room to furnish {pending the sell of the piano}, but we only have one couch!  So the hubs and I have talked about putting our current couch in the new living room and purchasing a different couch for the family room.  Our current couch is 3 years old from Z Gallerie and though we love the style of it, we hate how hot it is {microfiber}!  And thought microfiber should be easy to clean, white is not so much!  So we think this couch would be more suited for our living room. 

We have done very little couch shopping, but here are two we are debating over right now

This is the Lounge 93" sofa from Crate N Barrel.  It is SUPER deep and really is named lounge for that reason.  It is VERY comfortable and for a man who is 6'4" he needs a deep couch.  But I feel like if I ever wanted to sit proper on the couch and not lounge, I would need to stack 5 pillows in my back for my feet to touch the ground!!

This is the Dunham sofa from West Elm.  It comes in two different sizes so the hubs could still lay down on it with out his feet hanging off the sides.  It is almost 6" shallower then the Lounge, so proper sitting would be a lot easier.  I love the single cushion on the seat and the raised legs!!

What do you think?  What one would you pick?

Now hop on over to Shauna's blog {POST HERE} to see my three favorite paint colors for a house!

I love the lounge. It's one of my options for the man cave I'm still in the process if completing for my husband. My husband and I are tall and a deep couch is a must for us. My mom, on the other hand is short and she always looks even smaller when her feet don't touch the floor sitting on our couches. They both look great which ever one you choose.

Love the lounge. We considered it for our basement, but it is too deep to get down the stairs. I think your hubby will appreciate how comfortable it is.
Thanks for sharing your fave colors. Did you see that you and Emily have the same one? Enjoy your weekend!

The Lounge from Crate N Barrel. Two reasons. I think the arms will be more comfortable and the construction appears sturdier. Sit in both for a good length of time, move around, and see which works for the both of you's like buying a mattress ..You have to try it out!

Hmm...have you sat on the West Elm one? We did the same thing when we moved recently--put the gross couch in the playroom and purchased a new sofa for the living room. I looked at the Henry sofa and liked it alot, but it was a bit stiff, as were some of the other West Elm sofas we sat on.

We ended up buying a Petrie sofa from Crate & Barrel, which is really comfortable, but they delivered THREE damaged sofas (holes and glue in the upholstery) over the course of a month, then took three months to give us the discount they offered us for keeping the damaged sofa. (If you search on my blog for Petrie sofa you can see the whole saga.)

So...that's probably not much help in the either-or department, is it.

I love the both Tiffany but if I had to choose I would choose the Lounge. Crate and barrel use really quality manufactures and it will last!

I like the one from C&B but I also like WE so I really don't think you can go wrond with either one. Good luck on your choice :)
