As soon as we got in our front door we realised the folly of our purchase, a floral couch on floral carpet arrgh. Undeterred we bought a plain square of carpet and blended the whole thing together. This worked very well for many years. It is amazing what a pattern will hide. Lots of our friends had the same pattern, these couches seem to live forever.
As you can see it has "had it". We debated slipcovering, recovering etc. In the end we just decided it had to go. So it's gone and now we have moved a couch from the family room to the Lounge (these pictures were taken in the dining room).
For now I have put it in the too hard basket and will make do with the bean bags for the kids in the family room and buy a new one after the "big trip".
Here is some ideas of what I am looking for.

Something light, classic and neutral so I can change the cushions at a whim. The only debate is that we are rather fond of a cuppa and some choccy at night when the kids are tucked up in bed. It will need to be washable as my hand eye coordination isn't always that brilliant when chocolate is involved.
It's Friday again so
Have a good weekend.
