    Smile Help me pick a couch.

    Oh my gosh this is such a headache! I can't decide which couch to get, and I feel like I'm in a rush because I already got rid of my old couches!!! ahh.

    Over the weekend I bought the couch version + chair pictured below in dark grey suede on sale for like $1600 total. Then the guy from the store called me back and said the chair wont be delivered until November, and the I wont get the couch until Friday. Now, after thinking about it.. I'm having second thoughts. I have 2 cats.. it's going to be a magnet for cat hair! So maybe in leather? It's available in white or dark brown. Really not loving the dark brown, because it didn't like it was grained so cat scratches are going to show. My cats don't really scratch.. they do like a run and slide if that makes sense.

    So now Im leaning more towards the white leather. H-o-w-e-v-e-r, the leather version is much more, and weekend sale is over . I haven't called yet, but what I'm hoping, since its just an exchange, that they will let me just switch and get the white at the sale price. But still that's going to be so much more. If I get the sale price, the set is going to be like $2k.. If I don't, it's going to be more like 3. If that's the case, then I may shop around some more..

    I just don't know what to do. Then I went over to Anthropolgie.com and saw their couches -- CUTE! And they have this one on sale for like $2,2 (+300 shipping) on their website. Problem is that I can't see it irl first . Also I will be without a couch for 4-6 weeks!!

    I'm stressed. And couch-less.

    Also I'm feeling a little bad if I have to completely cancel my order.. I dont like the thought of taking the guys commission away .

    well... i'm afraid i don't have too much input because i have black leather but i'd say go for the leather. and don't worry about the commission, because why couldn't they tell you on the weekend that it wouldn't be delivered until Friday / November?

    Yeah, I agree... apparently there were to many orders for that couch in particular, since it was such a deal. Also, I searched every other furniture store in the area and none of them came close to this one.

    I have a cat, and also have suede couches, and really, unless he sleeps on the couch it doesn't really attract much cat furr (and he has very long fur!
    I'd stick with your original decision...Friday is only 2 days away....Novenber is only 7 weeks away...And think of the great price you got! Lol

    OMG, I this couch!! 1 question though, is it comfy?? Did you try it out?



    I forgot to add that when we bought our new couch & loveseat we sold our other one and had to go without couches for like 4-5 weeks!! It totally sucked so we really appreciated them when they were finally delivered!!!

    Hm, I would either wait for your couches you already ordered (they sound pretty!), or get the leather one. But, would your cats scratch the leather?

    I'd say stick to your orginal decision. It's always good to get a good deal and maybe you'll get them sooner than they think? It sounds as though the suede ones are lovely, I have leather sofa's at home and find them a bit of a pain coz they get so hot, especially if you're sitting on them with bare skin! You stick to them lol! I think Suede would be fab!

    Although your crew is more into sliding I would still be hesitant. We have a leather couch and although mine run like maniacs, floor bound, they occasionally jump onto the couch and slip. So the couch is definitely "distressed" looking. There is just no getting around it.

    Thanks everyone for your input

    @ Zomb, I didn't see that exact one in their store, but they had a similar dark brown distressed leather version, but it wasn't on sale.. It was super comfy.

    @ Jess, I know I really should stick with the suede.. but what I love most about the white ones is that it was grained so scratches wont show. The brown was too flat, so even the smallest scratch would..


    Decisions, decisions..

    Update: So, my bf just told me that he called and spoke with the guy and I'm getting the white leather couch and chair... AT THE SALE PRICE! I am so happy. The total came to $2400, which is still more then what I wanted to spend, but I know I will be happy.. I hope! I mean, I wont really know until it's here.

    I still have to wait until friday though, then the chair is coming next week sometime.

    Now I need a new shelf..

    Congrats! It's a beautiful couch! I've had to wait six weeks for furniture once and we had just moved into a warehouse apt and the whole place was so empty that it echoed! No fun.

    So which set are you getting? The set you originally ordered? But in a different color/material?

    Yep, the first one pictured above. I canceled the suede order for the white leather. The picture kind of sucks and I couldn't find a pic online.. oh well, it gives you an idea atleast of the style

    btw, weren't you looking for couches too Jess? Did you ever find a set?
