Went couch shopping on Sunday with my mom. Fun times, since we spent most of the time looking at what would work in HER living room. Silly parents.
But here's what we've established:
No flowers, fruits, berries, or other environmental/girly patterns.
No crazy textures or bold colors.
Nothing too fancy with wooden flourishes, carvings, or rivets.
What I'm thinking, actually, is something not too unlike Steve's "Thinking Chair". Basic lines, no frills. Not so much orange, but you get the idea. The contrasting color of the seams to the smooth fabric is cool.
Still searching for the right one. I'm sure I'll let you know.
(With such a great idea for a title, I had to create a post for it.)
