When was the last time you saw a new couch... in amazing colors? With a wonderful texture? And quality made? Yea, its been awhile for me too.
I love Kroehler furniture from the 1940's. I am very fond of my couch with a solid back. I am not a fan of the pillow back couches. Which always look like poo after a year of use. Because the pillows are all sad, dirty and lumpy looking.
These older couches had such great lines. A nice solid looking piece of furniture with great arms. And sits up off the floor.
When did it become a industry standard, to have your couch barely 6 inches off the ground, when seated on it. If my knees are higher than my butt when I am seated. I am not going to be happy. I am just not interested in sitting that low to the floor. Even the top of my bed, is a 34 inches from the floor.
