The old sofa was ok.. un nga lang nagbakbak na the leather so kita na ung ibang foam and the bottom has all the ngatngat na of our mababait na alagang mickey mouse. That’s why it was a necessity na to change it. I was the one who chose the color of the leatherette ( ayaw kasi ni rj ng tela, dumihin daw ) that we will use.. I chose dark brown, by the way kasi when you have kids around ( even if they’re 14 and 9 already ) hindi pa rin maiiwasan madumihan ung gamit and it will really make me sooo mad when I see one bit of stain on the new sofa ( feeling OC naman talaga tayo specially when the furniture is new dba?! Kung pwede lang I plastic cover ko gagawin ko para lang hindi madumihan for some time )… so it’s leatherette and it’s dark brown.. Manong, our 70 years old ( oo, 70 na si lolo pero in fairness malakas at malinaw pa ang paningin ) sofa-maker started to demolish ( demolish? Ano toh building?! ) the old sofa and will use some parts of it to build the new one. Exciting!
So now I can’t stop my kiti kiting utak to think of a style that is perfect for us: it should be MODERN, should have ENOUGH SITTING and of course COMFY. SO far, here are the styles that I picked:
( this is supposed to be L-shaped kasi un ang bagay sa house.. it looks soo nice and there’s a mini side table where we can maybe put the phone and a long slim vase and a classic picture frame.. ganda dba? )
( this one naman looks modern and it looks clean kaya lang parang hindi masyadong malambot ang cusion kaya nagdadalawang isip ako )
( this one definitely looks comfy, and since we chose dark brown for our brand new sofa, this makes me imagine how the real sofa would look like )
I find all these 3 pretty naman and met one or two of the standards I’m looking for. What I’m actually thinking is maybe we can incorporate na lang the bits and pieces on each design and apply it on our sofa! Like, the mini side table concept of the 1st one, the length and stylishness of the 2nd and the comfy cushions of the 3rd.. whatcha think? Good idea ba? hmmm.. I’ll try to look for more pa so we have more options.. I’ll post pics of manong demolishing the sofa a little later ( nasa office pa ko eh.. hehe ) …
