Nope, not referring to the popular 90′s Jennifer Aniston hair style that took the country by storm. Meet our new sofa, Rachael by Flexsteel. She’s slim, clean lined, and slightly vintage styled to play nicely with the MCM bench.
We sold the old three-piece sectional and put that money toward the new girl. With nine button tufts along the back, there’s just enough interest on the tight back.
The fabric color, Earth, leans more beige in bright light, but gray in overcast conditions.
Ben really wanted leather, but I think this tweed like textured fabric adds a lot of comfort and warmth. I paired with a faux cow hide pillow for a dash of Western flare.
Flexsteel offers a lifetime warranty on the frame, springs, and cushions, which should hold up to the four Y chromosome people in this house.
Now to find chairs to place perpendicular to the couch. I’d love to add something leather here, assuming we find something we agree on. Much easier said than done.
While we were at the furniture store, we noticed another Flexsteel brand sofa, the Dana, in the clearance section. Priced at $600, we took Frank from American Picker’s trick and bundled to save over three hundred dollars, including a fabric warranty plan on the Rachael.
The fabric is slightly darker and more on the gray side, but a real upgrade from our old couch.
Slightly rolled arms are more traditional in style than I usually like, but still small enough to fit the space.
Taller legs on both couches make vacuuming under a breeze, too. So far, we’re thrilled with the new additions. Fingers crossed we can say that years from now.
