The room will most likely be dominated by the furniture for seating, so we knew that we wanted to get a big sectional that would be comfortable and seat a lot of family or friends. So, I set out researching sectionals and figuring out what our preferences were.
First I found that I really wanted a sectional that had a chaise, I love lounging and being able to prop up on the couch with a chaise would be perfect. I also wanted a soft fabric like suede or velvet in a gray color. I also wanted the couch to be big, but not completely overwhelm the room. Oh and affordable, please! That's a lot of demands for a sectional to have to meet, here are some options that I came up with.
|West Elm - Henry Sectional - $2247|
|ZGallerie - Phoenix Sectional - $2496|
|Macy's - Joyce 3 Piece Sectional - $2499|
|Pottery Barn - Square Sectional with Chaise - $5799|
|Pottery Barn - Buchanan 3 Piece - $2849|
So, what did we choose? I forgot to tell you that part... we actually already made a purchase this weekend!! The sectional at Macy's was on super sale, so we went for it. I was originally afraid that I wasn't going to be able to find it in store, because it looked like it was online only in our area. Then, I was surprised when I walked into the mall last week, only to find it sitting there... in the exact color and configuration that we wanted! There are spotlights on the ceiling shining down on the sectional in these pictures, so it actually looks a little lighter in these pictures than it appears in person.
Kevin and I went back to the mall yesterday to sit on it and make sure the color was right, and finally order it! It should be delivered sometime in November, can't wait!
