This is what the husband saw in the Flexsteel showroom at the furniture market a couple of weeks ago…….. He thinks it would be perfect for the great room. I thought I had found exactly what I wanted last month when we visited the Smith Brothers show, but I held off on ordering what I had selected until I’d seen the fabric samples in our home. They just came in yesterday so I’ll have to set them out in the room to see how they look in different light.
But as far as this sectional goes, “Mr. I love leather” thinks it would be perfect for the great room . I really hadn’t contemplated using leather in this room again. Our current sofa is a collage of leather and fabric, while the chair and ottoman are made up in just leather. But after sitting and lying on this sectional, I thought it was really, really comfortable! Soft like buttah……. The chaise on the left is an option, and since I like stretching out, I would definitely keep it. And I would top that humongous ottoman with a big ol’ tray.
With this cream colored neutral, I would have the option of changing up colors and prints for pillows and room accessories. I’ve already decided that this room will have a lot of gray in it. In fact, the chair pictured below would be a nice companion for the sectional.
This chair has some contemporary straight lines in it, but I also like the traditional look of the wingback and the nail heads. It’s available as either a recliner or as a regular chair, but I wouldn’t opt for the ottoman because of space constraints. I would need to find two other chairs for the room- I didn’t have time to select anything from the showroom, so I’ll have to check out the catalog to see what would work the best. There are lots and lots of choices for fabric- in fact, the new introductions just came into the store last week. I saw a gorgeous gray print that would work really well for the pillows, but I’m not sure if I’d use it for the two chairs or not- I don’t like to be too limited. The husband just laughed at me when I mentioned this. He says I shouldn’t even bother myself with this little issue- he knows
we’ll I’ll probably want to buy new things again in three or four years!
I’m still tossing around a lot of things in my head, so I’m nowhere near making a decision, yet. The Flexsteel rep will be dropping off the leather samples next week so I can play around with fabric choices for the chairs and pillows. And the Smith Brothers fabrics just came in to the store yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to see what they look like in the room- we’re having really dark and gloomy rainy weather in Ohio today. Not good for seeing how these colors will change with the sunlight in the room.
And speaking of sun, I wish we’d GET some! I’m wondering if its ever going to be spring here. The creek in back of us overflowed its banks overnight and this morning the water was really flowing by quickly. Our house sits up a little higher in the yard, but in 2004, the water come up to the top of our 4 foot high picket fence. Now that was scary, since the creek is naturally about 5 feet below the fence line!
I’ll post my Smith Brothers options soon. I’m in the middle of a cleaning frenzy in the kitchen. Seeing all those organized kitchens at Shelia’s party recently gave me a kick in the butt to start working on the food pantry. The dish pantry looks pretty good, but all my food products are just a jumbled mess!
See ya soon.
Linking to Sherry’s House party on Thursday because this sofa MAY go in my house!
