This sectional is big enough for three people (and a dog) to lay on with room to spare. I heart it. It is amazingly comfortable, especially considering that came in at a bargain $1248 for all that slip covered loveliness. My particular configuration consists of the corner sofa 3+2/2+3 and the add-on chaise and I got the covers in Sivik Grey. I can't take credit for finding it as I've had the pleasure of butt-testing it in a slightly different fabric and configuration over at my cousin's fabulous casa. And then after I'd added it to my virtual shopping list but before I made it mine, the gang over at YHL brought one home (check out their uber-informative write up here). If my butt, my wallet, AND my favorite bloggers could agree, only one question remained...what to do with those legs?
|Karl from the Living Room Progress Shot, sporting the bad legs|
If you're into blocky birch, you'd be all set, but those basic freebie legs just weren't doing it for me. I wanted a more custom, sleek look and I needed a darker finish to tie into existing wood-tones in the room.
IKEA also sold this option, so for about $60 I could have switched out the basic birch for aluminum, but that look left me a little cold. If they had been included for the same price, I might have lived with them, but I couldn't see dropping $60 on something that took me from bah to meh. The hunt continued.
I'd read where Sherry and John over at YHL (seriously people, read this blog) gave their Karlstad legs a spray paint face lift, which was tempting for its ease and cost, but wouldn't work for me since it only addressed one of my two issues with birch legs. Thus began my Internet search for the perfect legs.
