You won’t believe any of what I am about to say but….. (1) I am seriously thinking about getting another(!) sofa for the family (2) I am 99% sure I want it to be leather and (3) I don’t want it to be a chesterfield.
The main reason is I really want a different look for the family room. It’s the most casual room in the house (it’s where we spend most of our time) but lately I’m feeling like it’s a little too casual.
Since the couch is the most important piece in any living space, it really sets the tone and I finally came to terms with the fact that I’m not going to get the room I want working with what’s there now.
The reason I want it to be leather is I am so tired of having to cover up the sofa for the Frenchies. I swear they shed enough hair in a week to make at least 10 more Frenchies. Even with a cover, I’m constantly having to vacuum or roll a brush over it to tackle the dog hair and I am so over it. For real. I think it would just be so much easier with a leather couch. I even said as much in my first month of blogging over four years ago!
I always assumed if I ever got a leather couch it would be a chesterfield. Lord knows I have talked about them enough. But these days I’m really drawn to more straight lines like in all of these. I really like this one:
I like it for the shorter back, placement and height of legs, the arms that aren’t too thick or thin, the right shade of brown and amount of wear. But I think this is from a store in Australia so not an option.
Another one that I like a lot is this one that I found for a long distance client a while back:
But i’s not an option either because it’s in Canada. (It’s from Urban Barn for you Canadians reading).
I did find this one at Montauk Sofa that looks very similar though:
So it’s a possibility but I want to do some more looking before making any decisions. If you’ve seen anything along these lines, let me know! All this is to be continued, I’m sure.
