Couch Purchase...Finally!

We finally found a sofa for our front room. I wrote about our search for a new couch here (last November!). We already have one in our great room (with another television) so it wasn't like we were without one all these months. I knew I still wanted a light color to keep the room bright since it's the first room you walk into from the front door. Plus, our other couch is dark brown and I wanted something different. We went to all of the large retail stores (Raymour & Flannigan, Mealy's, American Signature, and Ashley Furniture), but were disappointed. I noticed a trend of loose pillows instead of back cushions. It is not a pretty look, especially on pretty couches. We went back to Pier 1. We initially looked at the Abby Sofa, but it did not come in a light beige. This time we looked at ones with a nail head trim (I love this look). We went with the Alton Sofa in the "ecru" color. I love it! Plus, it is so comfortable, which really was our main concern since our last one was not.

 We are hoping to get it at the end of the week, which would be perfect because we are having family over on Sunday for Summer's celebration of birth.
