A Funny Story About a Couple of Couches...

As some of you know from Twitter, I was the happy purchaser of a couple of couches from my friend A this past weekend. A and her family are moving overseas soon and that involves getting rid of a lot of stuff. Just as she was trying to sell these couches I found I had a bit more money than expected and we've been sorely short of seating in our house for some time now, so I jumped at the opportunity to get these couches...

So, here's a funny story.

About two years ago, a friend C had an Ikea chair she no longer used and offered it to me. Another friend J drove me over to C's house to pick up the chair and spend the afternoon. While there I was blown away by C's gorgeous house, and I loved her furniture, too. Her tastes were very similar to my own in many areas.

In particular, I loved her couches. I remember wistfully saying, 'One day, when I can afford a proper lounge suite, I want one just like this, I love this colour!'.

So, you don't have to be a brain surgeon to figure out what is coming. Yes, the couches I bought from friend A are just like the one's I admired at friend C's house a couple of years ago...

Here's the funny bit.

Friend C is friend A's sister-in-law and at the time I hadn't met friend A yet. The couches I bought from friend A are the exact couches I admired two years ago at friend C's house!

Oh and here is my lounge room before and after new furniture installation! The first lot of photos were taken this summer, when we had the old dining suite, but the rest was the same until Saturday...

And now...


Love it!

Oh, they look lovely! And too funny, now you mention it, I do remember that you really liked the couches at the time! Your lounge looks like a comfy combo of mine and A's, hahaha! Clel xx
