a. Overwhelming
b. Intimidating
c. Exciting
d. Full of commitment
e. All of the above

Answer: (E). All of the above.

Throughout allllllll of the adventures that come along with furniture shopping, I have felt all of these emotions and more, many, many more. Trying to pick out the perfect couch; one that has the ideal ratio of comfy to cozy, trendy to classic, colorful to neutral, while fitting into the measurements of our space was a roller coaster of emotion. It’s even more of a roller coaster for someone like me; an indecisive, scared to commit, over-thinker!

Finding ‘The One’

We searched everywhere.. and finally found a “maybe” match at Macy’s Furniture. At first, we liked the Devon Fabric Sectional Sofa at Macy’s, but we weren’t in looveeeee. Not only is a new couch a staple in any room, but it is also one of the priciest pieces of furniture we were buying so “like” was not going sell us our dream couch.

As far as I was concerned, this gem was cozy and comfy, but I wasn’t loving the color and wasn’t completely sold on the size. The chase (peninsula looking part of the couch) made this sectional too large for our space. Fortunately, Macy’s has options for this size issue. Brace yourself, here is where my love for Macy’s Furniture was born…

Personalizing The Style

The super helpful employees at Macy’s Furniture sat down with us and outlined the many sizes and combinations this sectional came in. After some more calculations and measurements… perfect size sectional… check! The accommodations didn’t stop here. For an additional $200, Macy’s gave us the option to choose ANY upholstery we wanted from stacks and stacks of fabric…. amazing! After some more decision making, lots of indecisiveness, and a little bit of fate, we finally decided on a fabric. We quickly learned that the fabric we chose was named “heavenly”. With a name like heavenly, how could we go wrong? My indecisiveness quickly disappeared, I was ready to commit! With a size adjustment, new upholstery and the same comfy and coziness that originally caught our attention, we placed our order. Our exact couch is no longer available but this one is very similar.

Six weeks later…. we were busy preparing for Macy’s free delivery. Score!

Our living room before we got our Macy's Devon Sectional Sofa. Without the couch our coffee table was oh-so-lonely.

Here are some before pictures…

Excuse the mess. We are mid-move.

Soon, our Macy's Devon Fabric Sectional Sofa will also grace this room. It won't be our lonely brown coffee table and tan rug for long.

And this is where I continue to fall more and more in love with Macy’s furniture. Something about this  Macy’s truck paired with the glamorous red carpet the Macy’s movers rolled out to prepare for the big delivery left me even more head over heels for this retailer.

Ten minutes later (literally), the Macy’s truck was on it’s way out and we were left with…

Then and Now

Here's an updated photo of our living room. I love how the sectional sofa works with the other accents in the room, like our round coffee table and our black and white wall art.

Not just any old couch. It’s a couch that totally fits its name…. Heavenly. It’s the perfect mix of comfy, cozy, classic, colorful & neutral all while fitting perfectly into our living space. And although the process of searching for the perfect couch was far from heavenly, Macy’s made it worth it in the end. Even four years later, we still LOVE it!

You can read about what I would do differently next time in this post and how I clean these cushions in this post!

Our Devon sectional sofa from Macy's still looks as great as the day we brought it home!

Or come to see ALL the changes we’ve made in our house since moving in over 4 years ago right here. I can’t believe how DIFFERENT everything looks!!
