You'll notice that I won't be talking much about my living room for the foreseeable future on this blog. The reason is that the furniture I bought for that room five years ago isn't what appeals to me today. Oddly, what I bought in my 20s is too formal for my tastes today.

Now, I've narrowed down all the options out there to two Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams sofas. One, the Alexa, has round arms and classic lines. The other, the Alex, is similar in scale, but has squared arms. The Alex has two options when it comes to its slipcover: kick pleats or no kick pleats (at the bottom of the slipcover).

What would you do?


  1. I'm leaning toward the Alex sofa with the kick pleats! - I think without the kick pleats (at least from the picture) it looks "too" slipcovered if that makes sense. But both sofa options are lovely!

    (BTW - If you haven't made the trek to Greenfront Furniture in Farmville, VA - I totally recommend it...warehouse after warehouse of furniture and rugs at really great prices.)

  2. I think I've narrowed it down to either the Alex with the pleats or the Alexa. Still on the fence, though.

    Thanks for the heads up about Greenfront. I've heard of it, but didn't know it was so big!

  3. I think Alex looks better, but Alexa seems to have more comfortable arm rests.

  4. I have the Alex III and I LOVE it! It looks great and is very very comfortable. My hubby took a nap on it today with my 3 year old. :)

  5. Today, I'm leaning towards the Alexa. Who knows...tomorrow, I might be back to the Alex.

    Thanks for all the input. It really helps!
