Couches are EXPENSIVE.

Ellooooo, it’s me again. πŸ™‚ As per usual, I’ve been MIA again. Hubby and I have been dealing with a home renovation project that’s been dragging for months. I love HGTV but it’s definitely not a depiction of reality…

First things first. We had to get holiday drinks at Starbucks. Currently BOGO (buy one, get one free) πŸ˜›

We’re finally in the home stretch and now have to figure how what to furniture pieces we want to buy and where to buy it. There are so many furniture stores (even more options online), definitely gets overwhelming. Our mistake so far was waiting ’til the last minute to order a sectional couch. FYI it actually takes 4-6 weeks upon purchase. We didn’t think about it and will probably end up sitting on our floors until it delivers.

Hubby and I did some research on quality furniture stores and came across Ethan Allen so we decided to check it out. They have absolutely beautiful pieces and when we walked in, we immediately fell in love with this couch:

You don’t realize how expensive couches really are until you buy your first one. We loved the color and fabric of this one and the tag price was about $2k. Not TOO bad right? They also had a 20% off promotion going on for the month of November. Woohoo!!!

After talking to the sales person, we asked for an estimate and the couch in the photo is actually…dun dun dunnnnn $4k. 😡 The 2k was just for the two seater cushions and does not include the chaise. I’m not sure what my facial expression was but I was in shock. For our home, to add another seat or two would increase the cost even more. Love the couch but not willing to spend a fortune when we have an entire house to furnish.

Does anyone have any couch recommendations? Of course we want durability and something that looks similar to the Ethan Allen one but without that price tag. I did some research and found an affordable option from Macy’s. Here’s the BEST PART, it’s priced at $1,799. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ Now it just seems like a steal πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ

Side note: Not essential but I definitely need a full length mirror for outfit of the days. πŸ˜‰

Outfit details:

  • Ralph Lauren boots (purchased from Macy’s a couple years ago)
  • Leggings (my go to choice for pants #basic)
  • Sweater from Macy’s
  • Leopard print scarf from Target
  • Burberry quilted jacket
