A Couch You've Probably Seen Before

Over Labor Day weekend, Chris and I made a trip to the mecca known as IKEA to pick up our new couch!

I'm pretty sure most of you have seen this couch before, and may even have it in your own home.  I first saw it on YHL and thought that it would be a very economical way to get the sectional we wanted.

Chris put the frame together while I was busy putting all of the cushions into their cases.  About an hour later and we finally had a couch to sit on and enjoy in our living room!

I couldn't wait to break out the pillowcases that I sewed last year.  Love how they pop against the darker fabric of the sofa!

We still have some work to do in this room like
- mount the tv above the fireplace
- buy a chair and side table
- figure out what to do in the corner next to the fireplace
- add some more lighting
- change out the curtain panels (red ones were left over from the sellers)
- hang art/frames
- a new rug?

Are you a fan of colorful accent pillows?


  1. Love how it looks in your room! Hope you love the couch - we adore ours! :)

    1. So far so good! We already have favorite spots!

  2. I really like the way it looks in your house! Most of the ones I've seen on other blogs have had the white or beige slip covers, and if you hadn't mentioned it, I probably wouldn't have guessed it was the same couch. :)

  3. Your pillows look great on the new couch!

  4. Love how your pillows pop against the couch! Everything is coming together so nicely :)

  5. I love that couch. The pillows really do pop against it, it looks great!
