Of all of the things that I didn’t think would be so decisive in our relationship, it was selecting a couch. I mean…how hard can that be? Vikas has the world’s ugliest and most comfortable beige sectional from American Furniture Warehouse. I have a cute modern grey couch that is likely the world’s most uncomfortable couch.

We agreed that we’d keep his (ugly) sectional for the room in the basement and get a new one for the upstairs. I have my heart set on blue velvet. Vikas hates wide couches. I think we have literally sat on a 100 couches together trying to find a common ground. We finally decided to go with the Davis sectional with blue velvet fabric. Here is my vision…
