Pick a Couch, Any Couch

A good sofa can be the heart of the living room — the visual centerpoint of the space as well as the ultimate place for relaxation — but the process of buying that perfect couch can be pretty daunting. 

You want to make sure you’re spending your valuable time and money on something that you’ll actually love. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could test out a few different options in your space without actually having to move a 350-pound piece of furniture in and out of your home? Well with Modsy, you can!

Olivia decided to try out Modsy for this very purpose. She and her partner had just moved into a new home from a much smaller apartment and quickly realized they would need to make a few key purchases to fill the larger space. She had a few staple pieces that she knew she’d want to include in this living room, including this beautiful Arco Floor Lamp, some storage, and a rug, but beyond that she was starting fresh with the new living room.

So the first step was finding that perfect couch.

Olivia’s first pick was this West Elm 2-Piece Chaise Sectional. She liked the idea of additional seating options, but actually visualizing it in her living room helped her realize that the new room was big, but not that big! The sectional felt bulky and squished into the space.

Her next choice was this beautiful Design Within Reach Raleigh Sofa. She liked the style, and it fit nicely within the space! But when she saw the price tag, she decided it was a bit outside of her budget if she wanted to have money left to accessorize the rest of the room as well.

Her partner loves a good leather sofa, so she gave that a whirl with CB2’s Alfred Leather Sofa, but nope. It felt too dark and heavy in the bright space.

She was toying with the idea of a bright color for the couch, so Olivia gave this Belgian Linen Willoughby Sofa from Anthropologie a try. But the theory did not quite pan out. The dragonfly color was more of a clash then a pop against the wall and rug.

She finally landed on this elegant grey Hamilton Upholstered Sofa from West Elm. She loved the way the grey of the sofa played against the wall color and felt like it was just the right size for the space. As an extra bonus, it also happened to be the most affordable option.
