FAMILY ROOM UPDATE: NOT A DAYBED

After all the daybed posts(here, here, here and here),  you would think I had my heart set on one.

Well, I thought so too until I saw this...



Azure sofa in Wisteria from Crate and Barrel on SALE.  Floor sample sale! $697! Originally priced at $1800.

I actually didn't buy it right away because I wasn't sure if the scale would work in our family room.
Plus, I wanted a daybed.
A week later,  I stopped by C&B again and it was still there! 
 Nope, I still didn't purchase it but this time I actually talked to a salesman about it.  I got the dimensions and found out that it's a discontinued item.  
When I got home, I taped the dimensions on the floor(we have the space!) and talked to Mark about it.
He was okay with it.  By this time, the weekend has passed.  
I was certain it would be gone.
I called and not only was it there but they did another price cut!
$597!!!
SOLD!

Here it is now in our family room...




WE LOVE IT!  
{Props to Mark for agreeing to a pinkish/purplish sofa!}

Does this happen to you?  Are you swayed in favor of a good bargain?

We are off to NY to visit family and friends and for a much needed vacation!  I'll try to check in as often as I can.  I also have some great guest posts lined up for you!

Stay Cool!

absolutely perfect!!!! I do get swayed often with a good bargain, but not with furniture, I often am like you, think, measure, then get. Your family room looks so comfy and inviting. I love it! :-)

I am most def swayed by a bargain whether I need the item or not. Ha!
I love the curve and the tufting of the sofa. AND the color is practically a neutral since it's muted. That would be my story to my hubby;)

Ahaha no daybed! You crack me up, isn't the journey of interior design so interesting? I love the colour and shape of this piece. I think it was meant to be all along.
