We went couch hunting on Saturday while Sweet D stayed with the grandparents. We drove out to Farmville to the massive furniture warehouse Green Front. They have 12 warehouses of furniture and rugs. And it was very overwhelming. I should have taken some pictures of the place - it was crazy. They also had NO ONE there to help you, which is the opposite of every furniture I've ever been to. We tried to find stuff, and it was fun to see everything, but we did not find a couch. Sigh...

Then we drove back home and went to Bassett Furniture. Of course we found the couch that we loved. It was a design your own couch as part of the HGTV Home Design Studio. We love it, but even with the sale of 25% off, it's wayyyyy out of our price range at ~$5400. Ummm... that's more than my first car. I know it's a well made couch, but is a couch really worth that much? Have I mentioned that I have never purchased a new couch? Mine have all been finds through Craigslist at my old apartments. And the one we have now, Hubby bought 10 years ago.

So, then we went to Haverty's to see what they had. We took a quick walk through and didn't see anything initially. Then we talked to the salesperson and he pointed out the Amalfi line of couches. We really liked this option, and for the bargain price of $2,000 after the sale, it's a contender. The seat at the end is called the "cuddler" and I've claimed it as my seat. I still think it's crazy how expensive couches/sectionals are - where are the deals?!?!?

While we were at Haverty's we looked at media centers, but didn't love anything we saw... still looking for that too!
|This one might look good with our cabinets?|
