finally: decision making

Pretending ... a new sofa. Blue? Beige? Real life simulation with real life blankets.


my weekend, so far: 

No, we are not going to buy chairs. We are buying a sofa. We left the sofa-section in the furniture shop and moved on to the chairs, because I wanted to see the colours in daylight. Moving the sofa close to the windows what not an option ;-)

Before moving to daylight, we successfully nailed down the model-choice. We are excited, since the measurements of the new sofa are going to be as close to the measurements of the old sofa as you could get. No, we are not fond of new styles. Yes, we happily stick with the proven design and proportions. Call us conservative. 

Having spent 3 hours in the furniture shop, we left with a modest selection of only 4 sample sheets. (4 out of ... 100?) Not bad! Back home we draped the sample sheets on our existing sofa.

Not to my surprise, the colours look different depending on the time of day (cool sunlight, warm light from bulbs at night). This is the cool daylight:

I did not really take the colour of the walls into concern, but that's why you leave a furniture shop with sample sheets. Because you should take the colours of the walls into concern.

Seems like we might have to repaint the livingroom, in case we go for beige:
The fact, that the fabrics do not come in the same price does not make this decision-making any easier.

For a better understanding: Sofas and I - we've come a looong way.

Some might say "Paula, this won't be the last sofa you are buying, so just go for it, buy a sofa, any sofa, just buy something!"

I am not so sure about that, regarding the fact that the last (=current) sofa has been around ... well, as long as I have been around :-o

Failed attempt, a few years ago

 Parting in parts - the large sofa left the apartment a few years ago.

Not to my surprise the manufacturer is Danish, just like the old manufacturer was. Scandinivian design, a love for life.

Enjoy your sunday-chill-out, on a sofa maybe?


  1. siehste, genau diese frisur! die gefällt mir bei dir, so kenne ich dich! ich bin von meinem nicht-pony inzwischen schon total genervt. so ein blitzableiter wäre die ideale abhilfe. zu haus trage ich es so, aber im büro??? zum sofa sage ich nix, meins ist rot :) und geschichtslos.
    liebe grüße, bärbel ☼

    1. Hihi. :-) Danke für die Blumen!
      Bei mir nähert sich der Pony auch, zumindest gedanklich. Samma uns ehrlich – ein Pony pimpt jedes Gesicht, reinste Magie, so ein Pony. Was war nochmal der Grund, dass wir ihn haben rauswachsen lassen? *gg*

      Zur Farbe: wir sind einen Schritt weiter! (Hurra!) Wir wissen seit heute, dass es farbig(er) sein muss. Diese Orgie in Greige is nix für uns. ... weißt eh, Kinder der 70er.

      Es läuft uns ja nicht davon, das Sofa ;-)
      liebe Grüße! Paula

  2. Pööh, mein Kommentar wurde verschluckt. Also ich bin eher für die Grautöne - also Bild 4 oder 6 rechts.

  3. Farbe? Mein Sofa ist sonnengelb. schlicht und skandinavisch :)
    Ich bin also auf alle Fälle für mehr Farbe !
