I have always wanted to have space to have two couches facing each other. I love this arrangement - Plenty of seating for several people (and easy to pull up more if needed) - and still very comfy for watching TV. I was stoked to find this couch (for $30!) - its a really quality piece (hardwood frame and firm cushions) and the upholstery is in great shape. I'd eventually like to reupholster this but there are several other things higher on the list (closet doors? remove wallpaper? kitchen remodel?).
I almost walked away from these couches - they are late 90s and very ugly. But, I decided to go for it - the price was right ($50), they were clean and the upholstery was in good shape. They are definitely placeholders until we find something better, but it has been so nice to be able to sit and hang out in the sun room with the fan on and the windows open. And we no longer have a big room with nothing in it.
And the best part? I moved all three couches all by myself in my station wagon.
