The couch is HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m soo excited. Remember I told you about a company a few weeks ago ( you can check the review HERE)that I called Home reserve and I had ordered my couch. Well, the couch came in over the weekend. I decided to blog about it so you can see what the process for the couch was like. I love to introduce my readers to companies that are awesome and have wonderful products and this is a wonderful product.
My couch arrived via Fedex, on a Saturday and yup all 7 boxes !!!:
We had a little bit of training already, with Home Reserve, I bought a chair almost 5 years ago and it took us, I’m not kidding about 6 hours to put it together. We had no clue; then we also bought 2 sofas for our front living room, a few years back, they went up a little faster… now we have a sectional, wonder how long it will take us… Well, check out here are some pictures of the couch out of the box.. All the boxes are numbered and have a sticker what section is in what box, each box also comes with instructions and a installation kit that consists of a sanding block in case you need to sand some rough openings and gloves so you won’t get any splinters ( BTW I must have 20 by now.. anyone need some??).
Lot’s of pictures below….
We had 7 boxes and 7 different sections to build for the couch, it took us about 5 hours to get the couch put together the way it is sitting there now. So really not bad at all. We had some friends come over during the middle of the constructions, they wanted to see what it looked like and maybe get their own couch. At first they weren’t too sure about the construction, because it did look weird; after all how many of you ever looked on the inside of your couch..lol.. but once we had the cushions on they actually loved the couch as much as we do. The couch is so comfy and soft; as you can tell my toddler fell asleep shortly after we finished the couch and she slept all night, I actually slept on it the first night, too and loved it… and when I got up this morning all the pieces are in its place, no moved cushions or fabric, you couldn’t even tell that I spend the night on the couch.
So if you haven’t checked out Home Reserve and are in the market for a new couch. All the cushions have zippers so they can easily be removed and tossed in the wash and they will look like new every time. The storage compartments under each seat and the washable fabric is what really made me fall in love with this company. What other sofa can you take the cushions off and wash them over and over again? My Chair above, we had for almost 5 years and we washed the cushions at least every other week, I’m a clean freak, I know.. and the cushions looked like new when we just replaced it with the new green one. The chair has held up the dogs, the kids and anything else in the last five years and I’m sure it has many more years left; the best part if you decide 10 years from now to replace your couch, all you need to do is order replacement color cushions and you are back in business, and a lot cheaper than replacing a new couch….
They also let you create your sofa space online for your room, the couch I ordered can be extended if I like and add more middle sections or add an end section or remove sections in case we move and the new house would be smaller.. fully customizable even after you get it home.. another plus point, since everything comes in sections, it can be moved easily…!!! We love our new couch..
Home Reserve has many different styles and color to choose from, I bet there is something there for everyone; HERE is their website.
UPDATE: July 7, 2011 _ I’ve posted pictures on Facebook to show what the couch looks like now 3 month later ( still like new.. but check it out) as well as the “older” couch and chair that we bough years ago … Here is the link .. If you have questions, just ask.. We love to help…:-)
