Living Room Furniture

The large TV and its stand came from the apartment but the old couch had seen better days so it was donated and they wanted a simple, relatively firm couch in a light color. We found this one on Craigslist and it came with a “free” Ikea coffee table.

The couch was in great condition and also came with two throw pillows, the seller reduced the price but he was also on the third floor of an apartment complex. Luckily there were two of us to heft it out of the apartment and down the exterior staircase into the truck bed.

It was a perfect fit and just what they had in mind at least for the upcoming baby years. It’s a good napping couch. The cushions are firm enough to hold a body so it does not sink uncomfortably into the couch.

My son likes modern, my daughter-in-law a bit more traditional. When he saw this ad for side chairs they were the style he had always wanted. These came well-worn but at a reasonable price for this style even as copies.

There were quite well used with marred leather and some scratches on the plywood but they are very comfortable chairs. They are similar to recliners in comfort but not quite as pedestrian. They are being used in the living room and bedroom but my daughter-in-law is not as fond of them as my son. They may end up in one of his spaces.

They have purchased a couple of inexpensive end tables and have filled the house with beautiful plants which really livens up the bright space. They are making their new house their home.
