Hi-Ho-The Dairy Oh - Our Couches Are Finally Here!


The much anticipated new additions to our house finally arrived!!!  We custom ordered our Natuzzi furniture from Jodi at Wright's Furniture in early March with an expected delivery date 4-6 months later.  The wood came from Brazil while the leather and assembly was in Italy.  Then, over the big pond it came.  Across many states, and finally... by the hands of my cousin Aaron and another delivery guy - it made it to our home. 


People get furniture every day... so why are we so excited?  For starters, we had never seen the shape of couch and sofa in our leather choice.  So, it was a little bit of a mystery.  Also, in June we were accidentally misinformend that our couch was coming sooner.  So, we bought a 50" flat panel and hung it above the fireplace.  Since then, we've sat on a recliner and lawn furniture (in an undecorated room) to enjoy the t.v.  Trashy, right?!? 

For those of you that have met my sectional couch - don't worry, we still have it!  It's in the front living room/office.  I'm not sure I will ever part w/ it.  However, we appreciate all of the generous offers to take it off our hands!  :-)
 

Special thanks to Mom for helping us decorate after the sofas arrived.  With her keen decorating sense, and Chris's engineering/carpenter perfectionism, it looks nearly perfect - just a few more things needed to polish the look.  Now, on to decorating the rest of the house!!!

Love the new couches. I'm sure they are worth the wait. I know you and your Mom had a good time decorating. I know she did. That's her thing. Now you can post more pics of your house. I'd love to see them.

Love you bunches

The place is gorgeous and the pictures don't do the actual room justice. It's all just so pretty that you need to see it in person. I've been telling Weldon about it all weekend. Will be bringing him around sometime soon to show it off for you.
