That Red Couch.

So here it is, this red couch of ours.

I spent 5 long weeks waiting for this beauty, and at long last, it arrived yesterday afternoon and greeted me with open arms when I walked through the door.

And there it sits. Staring at me. Wanting me to sit and enjoy.

But here's the thing.

What does one do with a couch that doesn't have a TV in front of it? How can I not sit awkwardly without a table to prop my feet? The hardwood floor is just too hard beneath my feet, am I supposed to get a rug now? Where do I put my glass of wine?

These are questions I have yet to answer.

So hence, after about 8 seconds of new-couch lounging/awkward sitting, I promptly stood up and made my way back to the comfy bed. The bed that has been a dear friend of mine for the last few months when there was nothing else to sit on. The bed that has brought much comfort and relaxation while I ate/slept/watched TV/cuddled/drank wine/and ate some more.

So, to my new, dear, beautiful, red couch, allow me to say this: It's going to take some time for me to warm up to you. We'll have to work together to make this relationship a solid one. But in the meantime, while I'm sitting on my bed, I'll very much enjoy staring at your beautiful self. So don't you worry. I have high hopes for us, indeed. Just give me some time.


xoxo

  3. You just need a side table (for your wine) and a little ottoman (for your feet). Boom.

  4. Looks so good! You should get a lucite coffee table or glass & brass coffee table, that way it won't take up too much visual space!

  5. I got my couch in October, so excited to actually own furniture! I sat in it for the first time last month, when I bought my TV. I TOTALLY understand this post! Hahaha

  8. Love it! You definitely need a coffee table or ottoman or something. I hate not having something to put my feet up on! And obviously you really need a place for your wine glass. Duh.

  9. If you buy something before I get out there to go shopping with you, get something that can double as storage. when you're in a small place, everything needs to function at 2 or more levels. Love you!

  12. Gorgeous color! It is weird to sit there with nothing in front of or below you. Umm? Move the TV?
