The Search for the Perfect Couch!

We're in the market for a new couch and I need something that can withstand the wear and tear of our doggies...and eventually, children! Let me please emphasis eventually though!

We have had a beautiful tan microfiber sectional that I just loooove, unfortunately, our doggies have really taken a toll on the couch and it's not looking so beautiful these days!

And to be fair the real culprit is this guy:
Yeah, don't let that cute face fool you. He is t-r-o-u-b-l-e! Before Tanner and I moved in with Matthew, his dog Gresham was only allowed on the part of the couch that was covered with a blanket. Then my little monster comes along and made himself quite at home, lounging wherever he pleased! Eventually, Gresham took note and ditched the whole blanket concept and now our poor couch needs to be replaced! (and come to think of it our chair, as well)

So, what type of couch shall we buy next?
I'm thinking leather! 

I found a beautiful leather couch at Pottery Barn but it's definitely more than I'd like to spend!

But it's just sooo pretty, don't ya think?!

The couch is $2,199.00 plus tax and shipping. If I want the matching chair that's an additional $1,099.00

Darn you, Pottery Barn!

With Pottery Barn out of the question I decided to check my tried and true stores, Amazon and Overstock! Oh, how I love them! Amazon didn't have too much that I liked but I found a couch on Overstock that's worth considering! I'm a little skeptical of making such a big purchase online but it has excellent reviews, you can see for yourself by clicking here!
The entire set (couch and chair) is 1,739.99 which isn't cheap by any means but much more reasonable than the set I found at Pottery Barn.

Before we make this big purchase, the hubby and I are taking a ride out to Andrews Air Force Base this weekend to see if the furniture store there has any leather couches we like (that's where our current couch came from!)

If anyone has any suggestions for places to look for reasonably priced leather couches I'd love to hear them!


  1. I love Overstock, I recommend that!

  2. Hello Sarah. I'm Sarah too, Sam & Susan's daughter. You should also check Ethan Allen, value city and also Belfort - Belfort has a huge "campus" of stores out here in VA off rt 28. Might be a far drive from annap tho.

  3. Thanks for the suggestions, we'll have to try those stores! I've heard about Belfort before and I've always wanted to go!
