Our Seattle Cottage | New Sofa

We had a special delivery this week!

The sofa arrived! Only the day before it was delivered did I receive a call saying they would be coming the next morning. Luckily, I was available to accept the delivery. One thing to note, I was a little insecure with myself, because it seemed like it wasn't going to fit through the front door. In the end it did, we had to remove the legs to make it fit. And I was once again confident in my skills...

I feel like I took a chance on this sofa having not seen the fabric or the construction before I ordered it (I wrote about that decision on FFWU here). I went for a safe color option in the light gray, and I'm happy I did. It's really beautiful and the bleached oak legs look really chic with the gray velvet.

I think my favorite thing about the sofa is the scale, it's large without looking that way. the entire length is 91"long x 40" deep. I also love that it looks formal, yet it's extremely comfortable.  The depth makes it ideal for both my husband and I to lounge at the same time. This one is going to get a lot use my friends!


Apologies for the photos - I'm currently out a wide angle lens for my SLR, so iPhone photos for the time being.
