In both cases, the options would include a full size sofa and a love seat; plus an accent chair. BTW, I think number one is actually more comfortable, she thinks the same of number two.

My option would be around $3,000, hers would be around $1,000 because we have a recliner that would work as the accent (plus they are less expensive).






Poll inbound.

Also, this is the dining room table and chairs we have already purchased for the adjoining dining room. It really is one big open space.

Which one makes it easier to clean the "Wet Spot"?

This is all new furniture, right?



The second one looks old already......

2 looks more comfortable

Go with her option and that leaves more extra money for ammo and new toys !!
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:35:15 AM EDT
someone i know has couches that look like the second ones. they are the most comfortable couches ever. also, if they are $2000 cheaper, get the second ones and convince the wife you need to spend the rest on another AR, accessories, ammo, etc...
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:35:44 AM EDT
I like the first one better.

The second one is better, you wont stick to the material.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:40:21 AM EDT
2nd, they are more comfortable, I have a set very similar to that.

Regarding option #1, the first time you sit down on couch #1 with a sharp object in your pocket......

BOTH SHOULD BE BANNED!

Find a set you argee on. There are aged looking leathers out there now too.

Something that looks like her choice, but is still leather.

I prefer leather. The wife and I agreed though so it wasn't an issue.

The first one would be very uncomfortable if you wanted to lay down in it. The arms are straight up. You would have to use a huge pillow or you would break your neck. The second one is just to puffy for my taste. Those kind dont hold up as well either.

I would suggest looking for one like the first one with different arms. I do love leather furniture though. There is nothing like it. Hope you dont have pets.

The first one looks like something you'd find in the lobby of an office.

We have the number 2 couch and it is just as comfortable as you can get . . . always a nap waiting to happen.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:53:47 AM EDT
the second one is much better to clean you AR15 on.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:54:07 AM EDT
You want comfy (2) or classy (1)?
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:54:10 AM EDT
You have a far broader range of decor options with #2 than the Euro Scandinavian look of #1. You may not have the same decor taste in 18 months & you would get far more mileage out of #2.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:58:19 AM EDT
Get #2. You will learn to like it, save 2k AND make the wife happy. I honestly like the look of #2 better anyway.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:58:46 AM EDT

Definitely #2.

Get #1. If you regret your decision, blame BUSH

#1 looks ghey, #2 looks like you sink right into it.

recliners are so.....1978.

Get #1.

We had a couch that was rated by all our friends as the best couch they had ever seen in any house. The simple criteria was that every one of them had fallen asleep on it at one time or another.

Lay down and try to take a nap on each. You will have your decision shortly.

Couch 2 looks better, and looks more comfortable.

Link Posted: 9/19/2005 11:19:08 AM EDT
I like number 2 better.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 11:19:50 AM EDT
Set #2, makes the Mrs happy, plus is less expensive... I usually like the modern look, but #2 looks better with the other furniture. Plus the extra $2k can go for some other nice stuff.

BTW, are we getting a new dinner pic with the new furniture??
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 11:20:07 AM EDT
Couch #1 appears to match the seat cushions on the dinning room set you have.
Couch #2 appears to be so much more inviting and comfortable.

I voted for #2. You don't want everything the same color and you want comfort.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 11:26:59 AM EDT
$3000 seems very steep to me. #2 looks more comfortable too. I'd take #2 and $2000 cash in my pocket over #1.

<Chauvinistic Chivalrous thought of the day>

You watch alot of TLC don't you?

Let's examine how it would have worked in the 50's. Even though I am in my early thirties, this is how my house is run. If you are a prick, then ignore what is below since it won't work for you.

As the man of the house, your comfort, along with which sofa you feel is "prettier" or whatever, is of secondary importance. This is a major purchase, and as such you are the decision maker.

Your job is to evaluate things like the quality of the sofa, the warranty, and additional things like stain resistance. You should also look at the effect upon your financial situation. Keeping the wife happy is a major consideration too, and as a man you will happily forego comfort in order that she be comfortable (unless her sofa is a POS, in which case you will veto it).

Look at the factors stated above, and let your wife know your decision. As I said, if you are a selfish prick then this style of household management will not work for you. Your wife must trust that you will do your due diligence in evaluating the non-comfort factors listed above, and come to a fair conclusion no matter your personal comfort.

You pick the guns, she picks the furniture. That's only fair.

Then you can say, "But Honey, I bought the couch you wanted."

This is her area of expertise, let her run with it.

Let the wife pick the sofa but you get to do the driving.

#1 No questions about it. Personally I'm into mid-century furniture, you know late 50's early 60's styles which that couch reminds me of, I'm doing my whole house with vintage late 50's early 60's styles.

Couch #2 looks like shit.

Please tell me I am seeing things. An ARFCOM poster advocated a couch for snuggling on?

SNUGGLING?

#2 is similar to what we just got this year.

We all ( and everyone that visits ) loves it.

You do not want a leather couch. I had one when I lived in Michigan and, even there, it was hot enough to not want to use most of the year.

In AZ...get cloth.
