It's exactly what I'm looking for too. Neutral with clean lines. I can dress it up or down, and it'll go with most color schemes.
As I've been working on changing the color scheme in my living room, the one thing that's standing in my way of having the look that I want is my sofa set. My sofa and love seat are skirted, camel back, and upholstered in a yellow-y neutral chenille. Blah.
The yellow-y fabric makes me think my sofas belong in a room that looks like this:
My husband and I bought our sofa and love seat four years ago, back when I knew that I wanted my house to look pretty, but I didn't really have a grasp on my own personal style.
Our set was also an awesome deal. We stumbled on it in a furniture store that was changing location and trying to get rid of their inventory before they moved. We bought both pieces for $650. Yes, a new sofa and love seat for $650. They're decent quality too. As much as I'd like to get new sofas, I don't think I could bring myself to pay much more than that on a new set. Since sofas are hard to come by at $650 for two, I most likely won't be getting them any time soon.
Of course reupholstering our sofas would be cheaper than buying new ones, but it's still not exactly cheap. I wish I could get my sofas to look a little more like this:
Since buying new sofas, nor reupholstery are options, this is what I'm going to do: I'm going to turn my "wanter" off. Yes, you read that right, "wanter." We all have it. That voice (urge, impulse, whatever) that tells us that there is something that we should have that we currently don't have. The "wanter" also usually tells us that we should have that thing the very instant the voice, urge, or impulse kicks in. Sometimes the "wanter" is sneaky and can convince us that the thing we want is actually a need.
The truth is that I don't need sofas, so I'm going to work with what I've got and I'm going to be happy with it. I'm going to be thankful that I've got furniture in the fist place and that I've got a roof to put it under.
Maybe I'll stumble across a killer deal sometime soon (let me know if you find a sofa and love seat for about $200, OK?) or I'll find a way to make inexpensive slip covers with my
