Yesterday we decided to go shopping at Good's, a huge furniture store nearby, in search of a sectional. I had always wanted to go here, ever since I saw the commercials on TV when I was a kid. It's much more than just a furniture store. They seemed to have every piece of furniture imaginable, plus there is a gift shop there, a restaurant, and they have their own bed and breakfast. The store is a historic part of the area and has been around for over a century.
The furniture store itself was HUGE. Multiple levels and buildings, and you could definitely get lost in it. I know I did! After walking around through several of the rooms, I had know idea where we had first come in at.
The decor was pretty awesome. It was like a dream furniture store...I'm still surprised we had not gone here sooner.
We saw sofa after sofa, dining tables, chairs, desks, every piece of furniture you could think of. Many of the pieces could be customized with the fabric you choose and throw pillows you wanted, and let me tell you, there were hundreds beyond hundreds of fabric choices!
The best part though, is that we ended up finding the perfect sectional! We bought it right there. I'm really excited to see it in the living room. I know it will take up a lot more space than our current couch, but we really need the seating. If that means that I have to completely redecorate and sacrifice a few current pieces of furniture, then that's what we'll have to do. ;)
Below is the model that we got, but it will be a little different, since we've customized it. It's the Craftmaster F-Series. This sectional was perfect because it was completely customizable to whatever your needs may be. You can switch around the sides, add or subtract pieces, even choose from seemingly hundreds of fabric samples, in all kinds of textures and colors.
We ended up going with a soft, velvety fabric in a shade of light brown. A little lighter than our current couch I think. The side of the sofa will be flipped compared to the one in the store, and instead of the "cuddler" on the end (see how it goes off in an angle?), it will be a straight edge like the one on the other side. We took the measurements of our living room with us to make sure it would fit ok, and we think it will fit perfectly in the corner of the room.
We also got 5 throw pillows included, which could be made in whatever fabric we chose. That was another fun part for me - picking the fabric and pattern of the pillows. Can't wait to share what I chose!
We won't get the sofa for about 6 to 8 weeks, since it's custom and they have to build it to all of our specifications. But hopefully it will be worth the wait! I'm thinking it will probably be delivered in January.
Even though Trent was reallllllyyy wanting a recliner in the sofa, this one does not have one of those. I promised him that we will be able to make it work. We'll get a comfy ottoman or something!
After we bought the sectional, we went downstairs to the Wine Cellar Restaurant and ate dinner. It was such a cozy little place, and we were the last diners there for the night.
The food was good, but the best part was the pie we had for dessert. OMG. I had the peanut butter pie, and Trent had Banana cream. It may have been the best peanut butter pie I've ever had.
Next to the restaurant was a gift store that had clothing, jewelry, scarves, etc. There was even a little pond there that was all decorated for Christmas.
Before we left we made sure to take pictures with the stuffed moose out front. I just couldn't resist.
Dorks, I know. What an afternoon, though! We got to walk around the coolest furniture store in our area, and we bought a new sectional. I can't wait to see it in our room! A good way to spend a Saturday.
