The weekend that we picked up the new couches was less than ideal. Tempers were flaring (mainly mine) and the heat had us all melting. But in the end we did end up with my in-laws couches. They are a little more formal than I would have personally picked but also very comfy. And of course they are better than the cream leather set we had for 6 years. I am happy with these.
I have also been getting rid of a ton of stuff so I feel like the whole house is getting a makeover.
