When we moved into the apartment, we installed the furniture that we had from our little house. The furniture that was suitable to our little house in the woods didn’t always look right in our concrete apartment. In particular, the couch didn’t look particularly right. I think the only place where it shows up in a photo on the blog is the recently posted dog video. We’ve continued to use that comfy couch until it was reaching the end of its usefulness.  On a short holiday trip to Chicago, we found a replacement, at the same store where we’ve bought a lot of our furniture, including the green couch, Room & Board.

A few more steps. We installed the carpet tiles we bought about a year ago. Everywhere else, we used a collage of carpet tile samples we’ve collected from our offices. For the living room, though, it seemed appropriate to do more consistent colors, still with a collage look. The last addition was the dramatic floor lamp.

The girls have approved the new couch.

The living room is starting to look right.

    Couch and lamp look good, but I’ll miss the green couch to sleep on. Love, Mom

      We’ll keep the couch for you- it will be ready for the next time you get stranded here!
