People in my couch photos Top Ten #3

from my first volume May 13, 2009 another person I did not see originally - at that time I would have been too intimidated to take the picture if I had known he was there. Now I just think it is normal to take photos of couches!

Not Quite - just a bit early ?!

While visiting Florida, I kept my eye open for "sofafrees" - this one was asking $5 - not quite free, but my guess is that when they didn't sell it , it would become a sofafree.

Lawson Couch example



My first post where my intention is to just update posts where I didn't have any commentary
I will re-post and after a week or so move the info to the old post and delete the new one.
This is from the original post of July 12. Couch names are somewhat akin to cars - you have sedan, convertable, sports and Chevrolet, Toyota and Mercedes and within these categories you can have Camry, Prius Corolla etc.. If you are not in the know, you wouldn't know which is which. For example in the couch world a davenport is a brand name, whereas the Lawson is an accepted style. The is my first type that I am featuring
The definition from  http://www.myhomeideas.com

"The Lawson has a low, squarish back, with arms that are lower than the back. The form can have square or rolled arms."
