Our couches are an Ashley Furniture build-a-whole-room-for-$1000 special. We got them used from a friend for a great deal, but I urge you DO NOT BUY THESE. There are some things that you should spend more on to ensure quality. A couch is one of them. We hope to upgrade in the future (hint hint to my favourite upholsterer uncle) and replace the love seat with a nest chair. If you don’t know what a nest chair is, you’re welcome for the introduction.
Behind the couch we have our bookcase and a little bench (aka Max’s trunk). I visually extended the bookcase by placing tall objects on top and I placed some pillows on the trunk to make it into more of a seat.
Above the trunk is my Don Nigewance picture. There are actually 14 wolves in it (fun party game-count the wolves) and Max got it for me for Christmas. The plan is to put my Grandma’s piano in the bench spot eventually, and move the trunk to make a window seat. Eventually I would love to bump out the window to a bay window with a real window seat but the rough quote on that is $3000-$4000. Might be a while.
