Sectional Search

So my living room is suffering. After we built the entertainment console, it was obvious we needed some new chairs to flank it. We found the perfect ones, had them covered, and we were good to go!

I’m slowly finding some art for the room (don’t ask about the mirror I missed out on at Joss and Main—SO bummed), and it’s starting to finally come together.


Except. for. THIS. This is what we call the “ugly step sister” of the room. No, I didn’t stage it to look this bad. No, I don’t normally have orange balloons hanging from my chandelier. 10, 13-year old boys had just left the house, and I snapped this pic. I can’t make this stuff up.

sofa loveseat

Let’s not address the dog bed the size of a loveseat right now. I’m just not in the mood. The whole point of this post is to tell you that I’ve been searching for the perfect sectional for MONTHS now. Is it wrong of me to not want to spend $3000 on a sectional??

How ‘bout I show you what I’m looking at? I love these two pieces, but I don’t think a chaise will work for us. I want it to serve as additional seating. A chaise would mean my husband laying on the couch for 23 hours straight—as opposed to the 13 hours he lays on our couch now.

Here we go. This is more like it. I can’t have a boxy sectional because I really have quite a long wall that it backs up to. It would be wasted space to have a sectional that’s too square. You with me?

I can afford this one. I like it. I just wish it didn’t have such a large panel in the front. I know—particulars.


And finally, my absolute favorite. It is exactly what I want it to be. Unfortunately, I don’t know where it’s from, and I’m sure it’s out of my price range. Because that’s how things go for me.

I have a loveseat and sofa that I’m pretending is a sectional, and I don’t seem to be anywhere near finding one I want/can afford/will fit in this space. Got any secret stash sectional stores you know about? Have any idea where the sectional above is from? Have furniture woes like me? Do share! :)
