If Money Were No Object . . .

I am in desperate need of a new sofa.  The sofa and love seat I currently have are past their prime and were my husband’s before we got married (enough said?)  They could be worse, but the most redeeming thing about them is that they are a dark moss color and repel or hide almost any stain, etc.

However, I am in a season in life where I have to live with what I have when it comes to sofas. I dream of having an off white or oatmeal colored tufted sofa.  Alas, I have a four year old and a two year old.  Although I want to think I will be totally strict when it comes to my kids, playing, eating, etc. on the “new” sofa, it really is not practical in this season of my life.

Hence, there is no room in my current budget for a $2,000-3,000 sofa that will serve as a bounce house, napkin, Kleenex, coloring book (you get my drift . . .) My husband thinks I am CRAZY with a capital “C” to think of getting a white-ish sofa, but a girl can dream, right?

However, if money were no object . . . I would have TWO of these beauties from Zinc Door (one as a back-up) in case my beloved offspring ruin it!  I love the modern, clean lines, but also like the traditional color and tuffting.

Sofa What do you think?  Have you found a way to child-proof your beautiful furniture and treasures?

Do you have a technique for not FREAKING OUT when they spill, etc. on your investment pieces?  Please do share.  I still have a hard time not freaking out when they spill on our old “sofa of bodily fluids” as it is so lovingly called in our house.


  1. Ugh, we need a sofa so badly, too! But there is no point when it is just going to get destroyed. Sigh.
