8: the awesome sofa anniversary.

Last week, Dave and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. On the actual day, I was getting over the flu and Dave was healing after a visit to urgent care where they had to extract a tiny piece of leather that had flecked off of our decaying couch and gotten lodged under his eyelid. So we celebrated with takeout, Frasier reruns and were in bed by ten (and they say romance is dead). With that in mind, it could not have been a better time to replace said couch. And the design Gods were on our side, because the Hickory Furniture Mart had its famous fall after market sale the weekend before, where we made our big anniversary gift purchase.

The Mart is like a mall of furniture stores, including (ta-da!) The Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Factory Outlet.

At full retail, their furniture can be a WEE bit pricey. But take their outlet prices, add 20% off the entire store during the after market sale, and you get kinda sorta within my budget if I rationalize it. I didn’t have a hard time listening to Reason this time because she was screaming, “Are you kidding me? You will NEVER find a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Chesterfield Sofa (aka The Chester) at this price again. EVER!” It was delivered yesterday, and I write this post to you with my legs stretched out on the couch that’s coveted by design addicts and recommended by top design blogs such as Design Sponge and Apartment Therapy. Happy anniversary to me! I mean us:)

  1. Wow, only Dave would convince you to get a new couch by cramming a piece of torn off leather under his eyelid. Happy Belated Anniversary!

  2. Beautiful new couch, Lindsey! And how is it possible that you and Dave have been married for EIGHT years…? Where does the time go? And how is that even possible when we’re only 25? 🙂 Happy anniversary!

  3. Hi, I found your site because I searched for pics of the couch. I’m getting mine delivered tomorrow, after nearly a three month wait. Yours looks beautiful. How are you enjoying it? And, Happy belated Anniversary
