The big renovation projects are close to complete, so now its time to start looking for furniture. The living room has 2 nice green chenille slipper chairs, but that’s not really enough to make it usable. In the den, my “antique” rattan sofa and love seat have new slipcovers, padding and look renewed, but somehow just don’t cut it as guest room furniture. So the great furniture search has begun, I am looking for leather furniture so a friend recommended me to visit Wellington’s Fine Leather Furniture. Who knew that shopping for a sleeper sofa and matching love seat would be such a trying and fruitless experience.
In the last month or so we’ve trekked all over central Maryland. Either we find a style of sofa that we really like, but the sleeper option is so horrid I wouldn’t ask my worst enemy to sleep on the thing or the sleeper mattress is divine, but the sofa styles are so frumpy that I wouldn’t allow it in my house for fear of its frumpiness rubbing off on me and all who see it. Other things that get in the way of our purchase have been not the right style, size, lack of style, decent fabric, missing matching love seat or prohibitive prices. Which means we’re still looking.
