This past Saturday, while my friends were frolicking in the ocean waves and sunning themselves on the warm sand, I went couch shopping. You would think that shopping in any form would create fun and excitement. I even gave up a boat ride with a bestie and everything for this task!
Instead, it turned out to be stressful, overwhelming and anxiety-packed!
Holy beegeezus moly, do I need someone's help!
I started at one store here in Wilmington known for well-made, timeless pieces. Their space went on and on forever, so much so that I didn't even know how to get back to the entrance/exit. There were no windows, huge furniture everywhere, no way in and no way out- a panic attack nearly ended the trip with one giant scream...
But I got a hold of myself and found a way to take some pictures. Now I need your input!
These are the contenders- a compilation of pieces I saw in two different venues. Just so you know, I'm looking for an extremely comfortable couch with durable fabric that my dogs and I won't destroy. I'd like to be able to wash individual sections as needed but don't want the couch to LOOK slipcovered. I'm trying to stay somewhat traditional in the shape but am not opposed to some modern twists.

Let me know what you think of these pieces. Keep in mind that anything I get will have to be customized in a grey or brown fabric- something dark enough to cover a smudge of dirt if I should be unlucky, which I'm sure I will be. Maybe one day a gorgeous, ivory linen blend will be a possibility but, for now, it's just a dream...
