Even though magazines and decor books and blogs display perfect rooms, I am still a sucker for a well lived in old-fashioned leather couch. Those ones that are a bit torn on the edges and look like they need some well-deserved polish. The couch you think should be thrown out, but it is just soooo comfortable whenever you sink into it. Why do you keep it? I know why! So read on…
THINK OF ALL THE TIMES YOU SHARED WINE AND SECRETS WITH YOUR FRIENDS WHILE LYING ON THE COUCH.
There were also days when you felt a bit down and just sat there on the couch with your eyes closed, listening to music on full blast.
How many dreams and goals did you plan on that couch?
Remember when your child hung unto the couch for dear life while he tried to give his first steps?
Of course you can’t just throw it out! It knows all your secrets… Now what?
OKAY THAT WAS THE ROMANTIC VERSION. SO WHAT WOULD YOUR COUCH TELL YOU IF IT COULD REALLY TALK? PROBABLY ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
“Please can you loose some weight?”
“I am not a bin. Shove your lolly wrappers some place else.”
“This is one crazy family.”
“Oh no, are we watching CSI again tonight?”
“Please eat less beans.”
Luckily today in home decor & design, the rustic or vintage cigar bar style is very much in demand. So if you don’t want your old weathered leather couch any more, make sure you give it to another family where it can gather more memories. But be aware, it is gonna feel like you are getting rid of an old trusted friend.
