The Joy of New Furniture {My Living Room}

My new furniture is finally here and in place!!!
I have been wanting some new couches for some time now but I am super picky about, well everything! So it took some time for me to find some that I liked. I stumbled upon a furniture store while out shopping and the whole store was filled with really beautiful stuff!!!
The first thing I fell in love with was this coffee table!!! All I kept saying was “That coffee table is awesome”…..”I really like that table”…..”That’s a really cool coffee table”. Basically I was getting that table! I knew I had seen something like it somewhere….when I got home I found out that Restoration Hardware does a coffee table like this for over $1000. Let’s just say, I got a better deal than that.
Seriously, I’m a bit obsessed with it!
I was already in love with the coffee table, so it was just a matter of looking at the sofas. I spotted a set that I immediately liked, it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for but that happens to me a lot. I get an idea in my head of what I want, which quickly changes when I go shopping and fall in love with something totally different! Like my wedding dress!
See the bird cage over in the corner? It’s from one of my Thrifty Thursday finds. It was just perfect in all it’s chippy-ness, I just popped a small plant that I picked up from Ikea inside! It makes me happy!
You may notice that large piece of artwork that seems a little outta place. It’s a fairly famous photo from the battle of Iwo Jima. Well you see, we are a military family and my husband has a love for all things military. He has a huge knowledge and respect for those service members that came before him. Early on in our marriage he found this piece for sale and told me about it, assuming of course that I would vito it. I loved the piece and it came in a beautiful frame, so to his surprise I said I thought we should get it! It’s been hanging in every living room we’ve had since!
Even the lamp has had a little makeover! I just added some chandelier crystals to the lampshade for a little bit sparkle!!!
The couches (and chair) are a pretty taupe color and so soft. They are so nice and new I find myself just staring at them. I have been so use to buying things at thrift stores and off of Craigslist that it’s a little odd to have something so sparkly new. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love buying used and putting my own twist on things….but every once in awhile it’s nice to have new!
This chair is “my” spot! : )
Oh and did I mention that I am loving the fun pillows that I found too???
So whaddaya think of my living room???
