It was called "Avec" and cost $1200. So modern, so sleek! It was comfortable too, other than the tall armrests, which could be remedied with some pillows. It was also ready to go; we could take it out of the store that day! Only problem was that it came in one color: "pewter". Wah wahhhhh. The final nail in the coffin for this guy was when we took a cloth swatch home and rubbed it on Teako to see how the hair would pick up. It was practically a lint roller and showed the hair badly. NEXT!
We found this one at a few furniture stores. Sofa made by Rowe called "Berkeley" (how appropriate):
Continuing on, we found a huge sofa warehouse with lots of floor samples about 2 blocks away. They had so many different choices, but I finally found the one I loved called "Belas". It was very similar to the "Berkeley" with the arched armrests. I missed the tufted buttons in the back, but the pillows were much more comfortable. I chose a cream microfiber for easy cleaning and some retro-ish fabric for the complimentary accent pillows.
Luckily for me, the custom order would only take about a month to arrive... I could live with that. With the customizations, and hefty delivery fee, the final came out to $1100, just under my budget.
It was a nice surprise when I got a call that the sofa was ready two weeks after I had ordered it! Here it is all shiny and new and, of course, with Teako's stamp of approval.
I think what I love most about this couch is that Teako's hair is TOTALLY invisible on it! It's also really comfortable and soft. The tall arm rests make it a great place to lounge.
