For many people, life is a quest to find “The One” – a task of no easy consequence. But what may arguably be even more difficult is finding “The Couch.” Whether you have particular tastes, are an interior designer going for a certain look or are just trying to hone in on a sofa that fits with your lifestyle, finding Mr. Right-Facing Sectional is an admirable challenge.
Not too big, not too small…
Not too firm, not too plush…
Leather or fabric? Sectional or loveseat?
When it comes to your living room seating, there are plenty of fish in the sea – which makes finding The One all the more difficult.
Here are four signs you’ve found the couch of your dreams.
You Can Be Yourself
You know you’ve found The One when you can simply be yourself. Remember the old adage, “If you can’t love me at my worst, you don’t deserve at my best”? Whether you’re dressed to the nines or wearing your baggy Sunday pants, your couch should embrace all versions of you. It won’t matter that you haven’t washed your hair in four days or you’re having an ugly cry into the soft cushions of your sectional. Real couches love you just the way you are.
Finding The One is about finding someone who will be there for you through thick and thin. Likewise, finding a couch with durable materials that hold up to everyday wear and tear will make sure your loveseat stays by your side through all of life’s ups and downs. A strong frame and reliable support create a dependable movie night partner that won’t give up on you in just a few months.
You Like the Way it Looks
Let’s admit it, physical attractiveness plays some part in the feelings we have for the one we love. There’s no shame in wanting to like the look of your loveseat. Find a sofa that suits your style and fits in with living room decor. You’ll love a versatile couch with a style you can revamp by simply switching up surrounding accessories. You might not be able to change ’em completely, but a few helpful nudges in a more fashionable direction certainly can help.
It Supports You
Sometimes you just need someone to hug and to hold you – a shoulder to cry on. Seek out a couch that cradles you whether you’re sitting up or lying down. You don’t want a sore neck or back after simply watching a movie, let alone a night snoozing on the sofa bed. When you get the support you need, you’ll feel confident and energized.
No matter your lifestyle, finding The Couch is no easy feat. But when you do, you’ll be looking for ways into the dog house so you can spend time with the one you really love.
