I got a couch! I’m so excited! In our old house we didn’t have a family room, so we didn’t have family room furniture. And, conveniently, IKEA opened up soon after we bought our new house. So voila! Family room couch!
Even though it’s pretty contemporary to have a sectional, I decided to go with it anyway. I think it’s going to work in our room really well. And let’s face it, for watching TV, you can’t beat it! I chose the IKEA Ektorp “corner sofa” (you can’t use the pieces separately so even though I call it a sectional, it’s not really), and the Bergvik Beige slip cover. I also got a couple of throw pillows with the Byvik multicolor shams, and I really think it looks cute on the checkered sofa.
While we were there we also picked up a high coffee table so Rocket Boy has a place to sit and do his puzzles, and we’ve put up some bamboo roman shades from the local big box store. We hung them in the window, but I think I want to move them to hang from the ceiling because they’re blocking so much of the light and the view of our pretty pear tree!
I wish I could just curl up there on the couch, BUT, I have too many projects! Like the semi-unfinished armoire in the corner. Oooops.
