It seems like a house decorating cliche to purchase big furniture at IKEA, but I first noticed this couch three years ago and have wanted it since. I might have mentioned a time or two that we host some parties around here and having a family room that only sat a few people comfortably wasn't that practical. This is a huge sectional that, thankfully, doesn't seem to overwhelm the room too much.
We measured the heck out of this room so we knew exactly how much we could cram in here and headed to the store with an entirely different configuration in my head...that turned out not be an option, so we contemplated not getting a chaise added on since it doesn't directly face the television. However, I could not resist that cozy place to put our feet up, so we got it anyway and I am really glad we did.
Sean got everything built and I combined some throw pillows from around the house with a couple new ones. I want to keep a throw on the end of the chaise so we can plop down and not worry about getting it dirty, so for now I put the first blanket I ever crocheted on there.
We are hosting two parties on the 16th and 17th and I am excited to see the couch be used...then one day we will actually get an hour or two to sit around together on all this new comfy cozy space.
