We have been living in our apartment for almost 3 years now. In the last few weeks Mr Curious and I have been thinking about furniture upgrades. On top of the list is our sofa, which we purchased when we moved but is now sagging badly.
This is what the sofa looked like at the beginning.
Now, the two seats in the middle (where Sunny the polar bear was lying on) have sunk and are no longer offering any support. It is so disappointing since we spent a decent amount of money on it and we were hoping it will last us many years. Well, we learnt from our mistake and this time around, quality is our #1 concern.
Today is sofa shopping day. We narrowed our choices down to two - King Furniture and Natuzzi. We visited King Furniture first but nothing took our fancy.
I went to Natuzzi earlier this week to do some scouting, and I liked Fly.
I like the contemporary look, and the back of the sofa seats are adjustable, so if someone shorter is sitting on the sofa, he or she can move the back downward and make the seat shallower.
Mr Curious wasn't a fan though. He said he wanted something with better neck support.
We spent a long time checking out all the sofas in the showroom, and finally Mr Curious found one he liked. The Malcom has an adjustable headrest which suits Mr Curious to a T.
The configuration in the above photo is a bit too narrow for our lounge room, so we are going to get a 3-seater and a chaise. Looking at it now, it is very similar to our current sofa! I guess our taste hasn't change that much.
There were many colours to choose from, so the sales guy allowed us to take the leather samples home to match our decor. He said he would pick the samples up from our place when he finishes work. It makes a big difference to be able to see the leather samples at home because of the difference in lighting. We ended up choosing a colour we dismissed at the shop.
The sales guy also bought us some good news. The initial quote he gave us was incorrect and the sofa in the configuration we wanted costs $400 less. That was a sweet surprise because we were happy with the original quote - it was almost like a discount!
It's going to take 4 months for the new sofa to arrive. I can hardly wait!
