Sofa Shopping

We have this yellow couch that we bought close to 10 years ago when we were first married. It has barely survived life with Camille and Clyde. It has to go.

Now I have to figure out what to get next. I love the idea of a slip cover that can be washed in case of spills. In theory, C and C are older and won't make as big of a mess and/or we won't let them eat on this couch but just in case!

Anyone out there have a very kid friendly couch that they love and want to suggest!

I just started browsing and have come up with a few options.

Leather is certainly very wipe-able but I just don't know if I can do it!

I like the look of this one but I have sofas without skirts like this for the basement in our new house. I was always moving and collecting dust and other items from under there. Any suggestions?


  1. We got a great comfy slipcovered couch at Green Front. It's similar to the very first couch you pictured. I decided I'm only buying slipcovered furniture from now on! I've also had success at Sofa Creations on Broad Street, but Green Front has the same pieces for much less.

    1. We got the yellow one we have now at Sofa Creations! Green Front is a great idea! Have you taken your slipcover off and washed it? Did it work out okay?
