I'm not going to beat around the bush: we need a new couch.
The couch we have now is from a set I purchased from American Signature Furniture, back when they were still "Rooms Today".
It was the first piece of furniture I ever bought myself, and I got the couch, chair and ottoman shipped to my apartment for $773.77. Don't believe me? I still have a copy of the check. It's dated July 14, 2007.
I was so proud of myself because I saved up for months to buy this set. I loved the elegant curve of the arms. I loved the neutral yet interesting texture of the fabric. I LOVED the comfort and depth of the chair
When I purchased it, it was just me and my roommate JD; we are both teeny girls, so we could lay down on the couch and still have a good amount of room.
Then I moved in with JEGs, and the height became and issue
One Sunday morning, we set out on a voyage to find a new sofa. We had $250 set aside, hydrated ourselves, packed some snacks and mapped out every thrift store and consignment shop in a 20 mile radius. However, for kicks and giggles we stopped at IKEA first.
There she was. The HOVAS.
Her price tag: $499. Double what we had budgeted.
So we made a decision; instead of having instant gratification and buying a sofa second-hand, we would save up and purchase our dear HOVAS when we moved into our new home. Now, one of the first questions we asking while out house-hunting is "Will HOVAS fit?"
What do you guys think, did we make the right choice to wait? Any feedback on this particular couch?
Always & Forever,
