Hello Sofa

I'm hoping to have a new sofa by this weekend. Here she is. It is the Avanti sofa from Ethan Allen. I found it on craigslist and immediately put our own couch up for sale. So if all goes as planned (basically if my buyer doesn't back out) this one will be mine!

The images make the fabric look like a light gray but the true color is a pale gray/blue/green almost turquoise color. I'm very much in love. I like the fact that it is very tailored looking and has much lower arms than our current sofa - which will mean we will actually be able to see/use our end tables when we are sitting on the sofa. Plus the seat cushions are upgraded so they maintain their shape - no more frumpy looking sofa from the hours we spend sitting on it.

So please craigslist guy - pick up my couch like you said you would this week so I can go and pick up this one!


  1. Awesome! I hope it all works out!! Craigslist is awesome.

  2. Fab Craigslist find! Love the legs showing at the bottom.

  3. how sweet!!!i like that sofa..i could buy it...

  4. I hope you get it! Our couch is from EA and has been reupholstered once. It is such a good quality piece of furniture. My mom has been through three cheapish sofas to my one in the last 12 years or so.
