My wishlist was:
- Clean, mid-century lines
- Button tufting
- Tapered mid-century legs
I thought about getting the leather Karlstad couch. It has tufting, but not button-tufting. Both the back and seat were tufted, but I really only wanted tufting on the back. We almost went with it, but I was having serious doubts. I felt like Goldilocks!
Then I saw this image and I fell in love with the idea of a fabric couch.
It was hard to decide on fabric - Lucy sheds pretty badly and I was really nervous about having to constantly vacuum the couch. Each week, I wiped down our "leather" couch with a slightly soapy rag and I knew that a fabric couch would be a totally different cleaning experience. I was nervous about the dog hair on fabric, but we took the plunge anyway.
We got the Karlstad couch from Ikea in Sivik gray and I love it!
I ordered replacement legs on etsy from thirteencolonies. I love them!
I'm so happy that for under $600, we have a really great new couch! It's really comfortable and I am so glad we went with this.
