A few weeks ago Jake and I made the mistake of heading to Ikea during a holiday weekend to get a dining table for his new apartment. While dodging hoards of people trying to juggle their toddlers on leashes without loosing their Swedish meatballs I spotted....THIS couch and fell in love. Since then, I have been loving the look velvet couches like the ones photographed above. They are cozy and easy to clean, which makes them totally practical, right?? What are your thoughts on this look?
