The couch is gone the couch is gone!
Three years after first obtaining our green couches from a friend upon moving into our first apartment, we finally got rid of the last one.
And it is awesome.
Forgive me for this photo, it is pre-DSLR, but it shows both our green couches in their full glory. I bought these guys third-hand off a friend a few years ago, when I was desperate for furniture. By the time we got them, they had been well-loved. Not the greatest quality in the first place, the support was shot in both of them, and they were too cheap to even think about replacing the foam.
Oh yeah, and they were green.
I like to think I made it work pretty well, and things blended so much that you barely noticed the sage colour. And last Christmas when I got my nest chair, I got rid of the loveseat.
And it was glorious.
But I still had one green couch, and I knew just the thing to replace it.
A $3000 Urban Barn leather couch.
So I waited. And I dreamed about it in this post.
When we got married and were given wonderful monetary gifts from our family and friends, I told Max I already knew what I wanted to buy before we put the rest in savings (see beautiful couch, above).
But I still wanted a deal.
So, when we walked in to Urban Barn in Winnipeg after our honeymoon and saw this guy on sale, I had to have it.
The salesperson gave us an additional hundred dollars off, and so we ended up getting it for 66% off. DEALS.
This was a floor model and no longer produced (hence the deal) but there are a lot of similar Urban Barn couches HERE.
I just love the warmth the leather brings to the room. I’m looking forward to the patina over time, and this kind of couch just gets more beautiful with age. The leather is not bonded either, but real leather, so we really did get a steal for the quality.
The lady also asked if I had pillows for the couch or if I would like to pick some out. Please.
Now between this couch and my nest chair, Urban Barn is taking over my living room.
There are a few more changes I want to make in here (including curtains, a rug, new bookshelf, move the piano in, you know, just SEVERAL things), but this is a great step towards my dream living room.
The low profile of this couch also makes a huge difference. This also makes me want a new basement couch as well #createdamonster.
Let me know if you have any questions.
