hell has frozen over
...because we finally have a couch! let's just say that the people at room and board were fibbin' when they said the legs didn't come off any their couches (i had 3 employees and the fit crew tell me that). after a third visit to their soho shop i found a lovely employee who said that in fact three couches have legs that come off. luckily one of them (the 76" andré) fit like a dream and we no longer have to live with a filthy (hello, soy sauce stains) ikea couch. and we managed to swing a tufted back to boot! i walked in the living room today and did a double take- i still can't believe we found one that fit. i still wish it had cute little tapered legs like the petrie but i'm just so happy to finally have one.
