I’m teaming up with some blog friends to share some of our very favorite sofas, so if you happen to be in the market for a new one, this post is for you. (Check out the blog hop at the end of this post!) There are so many things to take into consideration when buying a sofa: durability, scale, fabric type, style, color, stain resistance, etc. We chose two completely different types of sofas for our home based on which space they would go in. Our family room sofa is kid friendly. It was a bit of an investment because we knew we needed something that would last. We chose a polyester blend for the fabric since that’s easiest to clean, and we also needed a sofa bed for guests since we purchased it when we lived in a much smaller home. (You can see that sofa here.) But that’s not my favorite sofa in our home.

My favorite sofa in our home is the one in my “mom cave” (aka living room/office). It’s the less kid friendly but much more beautiful Lakewood Tufted Sofa from Home Decorators Collection.
I googly eyes-love it. It may not be practical for a highly trafficked kid space, but for my mom cave/office/living room, it’s perfect. (It does come in other, more kid friendly, fabric options too though.) I just chose a light color linen fabric.
The Mid Century coffee table belonged to my great-grandmother. I just laid a layer of burlap under the glass for the time being. The floor lamp was a Craigslist find that I spray painted gold.
The art on the wall was given to us by Chris’ grandmother when we first got married. I love styling this sofa with pillows that add pops of bright color to the space. I made the floral pillow covers (but you can find some on Etsy, linked below), and the green pillow is from HomeGoods.
