Choosing the perfect couch!

This topic has been hot on my mind lately because our living room is so desperate for more seating and a rug/sofa makeover. We've been using our IKEA sofa with Comfort Works slipcover for a couple years now and we love it, but I'm ready for a color change and we have a funky layout but still need more places for people to sit! (But don't we all have a funky living room layout in some way?)

Point is, which sofa to buy is an important choice and a lot of research does (should!!) go into it.

We're helping you out with that choice in this week's episode of the Your Home Story podcast, with a "deep dive" into what to consider when buying a couch.
Yellow Brick Home recently did a whole post about their new sectional@

We break it down to SIX big questions! Function, dimensions, lounge-worthy or more for looks, fabric, budget, and style.

Here are some Cliff's Notes for you to follow along with as you listen to the episode. We talked about:
  1. Function
  2. Dimensions
  3. Lounge-worthy or Firm
  4. Fabric
  5. Budget
    1. Smaller Budget - IKEA and Target
    2. Middle - West Elm and Article
    3. Upper Budget - Crate and Barrel and Restoration Hardware
  6. Styles (ie. Midcentury, Chesterfield, Rolled arms, etc.)
Then we also mentioned a couple of other good research tools--Bev from Room Sauce recently did a huge sofa search and came up with a great post about it! Also, the Sofa Squad by Apartment Therapy has reviews and rankings for sofas from all the big companies--example, The Most Comfortable Sofas at West Elm.

Good luck in your next sofa purchase!
