But ultimately, they looked like this. Holy 80's Batman! They did, however, wear really well, were a nice neutral colour and were super easy to clean. I had a load of interest on Craigslist and they ultimately went to a good home.
And for their replacement we chose the Luxe Sofa from World Market. I shopped around loads online, I must have ready about a million reviews. The Luxe Sofa is slip covered so we can take the covers off and wash them (important with a mischievous little dog) and it means we can change the colour easily if we want to update the look of the room. We took full advantage of World Market's post Christmas sale and managed to get a 3 seater frame, a 2 seater frame and both slip covers for $600.
To save on shipping costs I ordered them at the store to be delivered to the store and picked them up using a Home Depot rental truck. I saved about $200 doing it that way so it was definitely worth it.
Here's a little sneak peak.
Next up are the floors. Oh yes, and the walls too. It's all change around here!
