Q: My husband and I CAN'T agree on a new couch. Attached are pictures of his ideal couch (after the jump) and mine (above), which do not intersect, apparently. He wants something traditional and very comfortable (apparently he leans on the arms while sitting) while I just want something clean-looking that does not in any way resemble a catcher's mitt or bean bag chair.
He also hates the buttons on tufted pieces. And too firm of cushions. I'd like to not lose the remote. Does there exist a couch with clean lines and comfy arms, no buttons and a happy medium of stuffing? If so, where can I find it? What does it look like? Can it be had for under $800?
