And, just before Christmas we got our new sofa - hurrah! I managed to sell our old Habitat Sofa for 400 euros and bought an Ikea Karlstad sofa instead which I am really happy with. It's such good value (and we got 30% off because the box was slightly damaged and the edge of one corner of the sofa a little scuffed!). I didn't want the standard beech legs and was planning to get a chrome underframe but these were not in stock so I got a set of chrome legs for 25 euros and actually think I prefer them. We went to Ikea again last week to pick up the footstool. I need to get some nice cushions - just using this Ikea one from the snug for the moment. What I especially like about this sofa is that if we get bored of it we can change the whole look with new covers...perfect!
Oh...I must introduce you to Harvey (he is a giraffe). I got him as a present from my husband...he is handmade by Ruth (daughter-in-law of Ian who I mentioned for creating the Christmas card in this post). Isn't he the cutest little chap??
Have a great day!
