Stylin' DI Couch

I am conducting a survey- I found this couch at DI, and I thought it was a great find! (Of course I still had to call my mom to try and describe it to verify it over the phone-) I never thought that I would buy an upholstered piece of furniture from DI and actually bring myself to sit on it, but this one doesn't smell, isn't sticky, doesn't have any stains, and the upholstery is in great condition! The only place that shows any sign of wear is on the very top/back of the couch, where you can't even see it very well. The cushions are all in great condition. Timm hates it. It's just very retro! But the colors are awesome, in my humble opinion. So what do you all think? (Ir)Regardless-kidding- I still think it's rad.

And it's really long!

Totally cool. I will give you my full opinion tonight when I see it in person. I love how long it is- total plus!

I can see why you like it. It's not my style but with how you decorate a room I can see it being cute. I do like a long it is you can have a lot of sitting space for people who visit and a good nap spot for you.

Oh my gosh, I love it!! It's waaay cuter than I imagined, and I already thought it was going to be pretty cute. I wish I could find one like that!

Upon close inspection- SO CUTE! I was surprised about the good shape it was in too- and how comfortable. Like Michelle...jealous.

It's funny that Timm hates it, I assume you're going to get it anyway right? I think it's pretty cool.

It's amazing- modern but retro, very "Blueprint" or "Domino" (my favorite magazines.)

Okay, I LOVE it! It does look like the cushions could use a "plumping" but if it's comfortable, great! One way to give a cushion with more of a loft (full, rounded look) would be to replace just the cushion with a contrast fabric (probably a solid, or another smaller scale print, I guess). The length takes a little away from the purist cottage style, but it's totally do-able! Maybe Timm can learn to like it! I think you can write a whole story about the 2nd life! Great, great colors, of course you know I love them! Ask Timm to see if there is any way he could put some cute turned legs on it, that would raise it and he might like it better! Lots of room for the whole family and the cats, all at the same time! Pretty cool find, I say! Some cute frumpy looking pillows with collaged fabrics will be just the perfect touch. Okay, enough! Good work.

I will like the couch better soon, because the turned legs will be turned by me on my own lathe. Jessie picked out the style today. they will be the best legs ever!
