I am so thrilled to be sharing our new couches with you today along with a peek at our family room Christmas decor! I love this time of year and I am thankful for Wayfair’s sponsorship of this post.
Happy Black Friday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am SO excited to share this post with you today. Things have changed in a big way here in our family room and I have been so anxious to share!
I have been on the hunt for the perfect couches for this space for almost a year now! I really liked our old couches (you can see them here), but they were showing some pretty major wear, and it was time to replace them. You may remember that I found a gorgeous tufted sofa on Craigslist, but it ended up not really fitting perfectly in this space, so we got rid of it too. I was then on the hunt for the perfect set!
I visited every furniture store in town and spent HOURS on various sites online trying to find the perfect pair. I also asked around to see which couches my friends liked best. I was feeling pretty indecisive until I found a few sets that I loved on Wayfair.
I really loved the Felicity (FYI, one thing that I loved about the Felicity was that you could request samples of the different types of fabrics), Evelyn, and Nantucket sets. All 3 of them were pretty similar in style, so after weighing all of the options, shipping timeframe, etc. I decided to go with the Nantucket by Rowe…. and let me tell you, I am in LOVE! They are so nice and solid, and constructed impeccably with a real wood frame. I love that I can remove the covers to clean them as well~ A necessity with toddlers and light colored couches!
My husband likes soft couches, and I like them more on the firm side. I like them to keep their shape well and help you to stay upright while you are talking with people. I think we have all sat in couches where it feels like you are drowning and fighting to stay upright. My hubby likes those, and, well, I really do not. The best part about this couch is it is somehow pretty firm, but also really, really comfortable. I noticed even the cushions on the back hold their shape really well, but are so soft. It really is exactly what I was looking for. I had never ordered furniture online before, and I am so happy with the result!
I chose the sofa and the coordinating chair, but I am thinking we will probably add the ottoman or another chair. It is kind of hard to tell right now with my big tree up in here, so I will have to see what the space needs once the Christmas decor is put away.
The fabric is a creamy natural colored canvas type of fabric. I loved our couches that we had before that were this color, so I knew I wanted them again. I love that it has a very nicely tailored slipcover.
My hubby says I have pillow hoarding issues… and he might be right. One of the very first things I did was play around with accessorizing the sofa with different pillows. Most of my Christmas decor is red and cream, so I pulled out pillows to match.
I have been snuggling in this chair, sipping on my tea and staring at the Christmas tree every night. Heaven.
My Ella came running out of her room like this while I was snapping pictures and started twirling around. She melts me. We have been also been snuggling together on the sofa, staring at the lights. I love this comfortable space.
I can’t wait to share my full Christmas home tour with you on Wednesday as part of Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk! I will also be sharing glimpses before then, so I hope you come back. I just love decorating for Christmas!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend snuggling under your Christmas tree!
