Form over function?
We originally bought a different sofa from West Elm because it looked cool. Cube-shaped and clean lines.
Then we tried to watch a movie while sitting on it.
Fail. Two people can't even fit comfortably on the chaise at the same time.
So we took a trip to Z Gallerie and saw the monstrosity above.
We took a seat and ordered it the next day. Along with the matching ottoman.
- Oversized, deep seats. Most couches have a depth of 36 inches. This one is 48 inches deeps. My feet don't reach the floor.
- Soft and squishy. I don't even know why we even originally bought a couch described as "cube." Squishy is definitely better.
- Rivets. I love the hardware on the couch. That, along with the rolled arms give it an antiquey/kitschy feel.
- 7 pillows. The couch includes 7 down/feather-filled pillows.
With some items, I will defer function for form. Like shoes. I'll wear beautiful shoes until my feet are blistered and bleeding. But with things like furniture - if it's the primary couch that you're going to be sitting in, it better be comfortable.
Luckily, this one not only looks cool, but feels awesome too.
