From Sofa to Settee Back to Sofa

December 22, 2010 at 5:30 AM 12 comments

As I type this post, I am sitting on our new living room sofa. Let me just say, a sofa has never, ever felt soo good in my entire life!  If you follow this blog, you’ll know that when we moved in our couch didn’t fit up the stairwell and so we thought we would go the entire year without a couch and with just a small settee.  But our apartment didn’t feel like home without a comfy couch.  So we now have the Templeton Sofa by Jonathan Adler.

We’re thrilled with the comfort! Let me show you a before shot of Graham lying on the settee watching TV. You think his 6’2″ body is comfortable?


Here’s another before shot of me watching a movie. Yeah, this position isn’t so cozy when sitting for a two hour flick.

And the afters….

As comfy and happy as ever!!!  Yipppeeeee!!!

The living room furniture was shuffled around a bit; the gray chairs moved…

Getting the sofa up the stairs was a challenge. But we had the greatest movers ever! Literally, this sofa could not have been one centimeter bigger. They angled and adjusted and re-angled until finally it made it into the living room!  Thank you Mygrate Movers and Santa!

    What perseverance!! You did it and the mover hung in there. Be sure to use him when you leave.

      Thank you, mom. Good idea on using same movers…if they’ll come back. 🙂

    Graham looks like Buddy the Elf in the Northpole on the setee. The room looks great, I can’t wait to see it in person!

    I love it – the colour and shape and size. Looks like it was made especially for you.

    That color is wow and I love the light legs. Good choice. You both look more comfortable.

      Thank you! I love the color and the white legs may be my favorite part. I’m now considering doing smaller white coffee table or glass – red is too big with such large furniture. We shall see…

    Nice work, Kate! Looking forward to seeing it in person!
