Since most of our savings is going into buying the home it doesn't leave much leftover to buy new furniture but there are a few items we would like to get sooner rather than later. Since we will now have both a living room and a basement/man room we need another couch.
Our current couch which isn't in the best of shape will be going into the basement/man room until we can eventually replace it. We decided we needed a new, nicer couch for the living room since that's what people will see when they first walk in. It's also where I will probably be spending most of my time since I'm not sure if I'll be allowed in the man room ;-)
We both have been wanting a big, comfy sectional. Something that we can both lay on and watch t.v. and with plenty of room for when we have guests.
Below are a few pictures of what we have in mind. The color and fabric are still TBD but we want something on the darker side that won't show stains as easily and will be durable against our pets and future kiddos. I'm also obsessed with having a chaise attached to the couch. I'm a bit of a t.v. addict so I need a comfortable spot to put my lazy ass while in DVR heaven. Since the fireplace and t.v. will be on different walls we want a couch that will accommodate a view of both.
We are going shopping this weekend and hope to find something we both like. If anyone can recommend any good furniture stores in the Northern VA area I'm all ears!
