New Home, New Living Room

We moved into a new home over spring break 2017. We love our house and the neighborhood and plan for this to be our forever home! Our living room is much larger than our previous one and we have been slowly buying new pieces to fill up the space.

We are a family of five and I wanted to have enough seating for everyone to relax and hang out. I have always loved the look of two sofas in the living room and thought this would be the perfect solution for us. In our previous home we had a white slipcovered sectional from Ikea and I loved it.

Here is our previous living room.

However, with 3 boys and two dogs around I grew tired of always washing and spot treating it. So we moved the sectional to the basement and decided to go with two brown leather sofas. I really, really wanted a chesterfield sofa in leather but the total cost for two of them had my husband’s head spinning. After too many hours to count surfing the internet and browsing through Pinterest, I decided to go with the Sven.

Article is an online furniture company that offers modern, mid-century and Scandinavian furiture. They do not have a showroom to view the furniture in person so you can only purchase from them online. What they do have excellent customer service! I texted with an associate one afternoon and she answered all my questions and sent fabric samples to my house. I decided to roll the dice and give them a try. I could return the sofa with no questions asked for $50 if I did not like it. I just had to put it back in the box and they would send someone to pick it up. I figured the worst that could happen is that I am out $50. It didn’t matter though because I loved them!

I will post about the chairs and rugs at a later time. Let me know if you have any questions about Article!
