I’m starting to think about how I want to furnish the new house. In the living room, it is assumed we’ll have places for people to sit, though folding chairs look more and more attractive the longer I live with children. 🙂 If the few websites I have perused today are any indication, I might have some trouble finding the kind of couch I want. So, I thought I’d talk about it here, and maybe you have seen something like my description somewhere.
I would like a seat thats frame is not upholstered, ie. the arms and back are just finished wood. Then, cushions (probably three on top, three on bottom) nest in the frame. The closest I have come to this in my search so far is the futon- close, but not quite what I have in mind. Although, if someone can come up with a comfortable one of those that doesn’t look like it belongs in a dorm room, I might take a look. I don’t even know what this type I’m looking for is called- is there a name for it other than sofa? Sofa sounds so cushy. And, I am not willing to pay much for it, which cuts down the playing field dramatically. 🙂
Any ideas? We had a couch like the one I’m describing here when I was a kid, the cushions in a 70’s orange plaid. Mom had it reupholstered, then later switched it out for something different. I don’t wish she still had it; the varnish wasn’t too attractive. Though I suppose I could have refinished it. Yeah, in my spare time. 🙂 Anyway, please help me find the couch of my dreams.
