I like to think I have patience but the reality is I don't. We were talking about what we wanted to achieve this year and mine were all basically what I wanted to buy for the house, they're achievements right? Top of my list was a new mattress and second was new sofas. The mattress was bought pretty much the next day and then a certain someone happened to send me a link to some sweetness at West Elm that was at a price I couldn't say no to. So I bargained with myself, sell your current sofa for what the new ones cost and voila! No guilt required. But me being me, I decided that I couldn't wait for the sofa to sell (I had lots of enquiries from eBay and Gumtree mostly about where the cushions/lamps/coffee table were from) so I bit the bullet and bought the glorious performance velvet West Elm sofas with no bites on mine. Of course the new ones turn up and the old one hasn't sold so we disassemble the old one and store some in the bedroom some in the study (much to Jules annoyance) then magically last Saturday a guy came to see it and offered me my asking price which was a little more than the two new sofas! Bloody beauty
I'm so much happier with the two sofas as opposed to a modular, this feels much more grown up and 'me'
