We attended the awards ceremony for the Chicago International Children's Film Festival last night at Columbia and saw some truly amazing work on screen from all around the world - inspiring. Another highlight of the evening (especially for an AT editor)...getting to finally check out the couchoid sofa and lounge chairs in person. We've always liked the look of them but in real life... ...they are even better. Much warmer and more textural than they appear in photos, the "leather alternative" looks luxe and high quality. It doesn't feel faux and the stitching and narrow chrome base are nice accents. Then we sat down...and wow! Super comfy. No question, these are very comfortable pieces of furniture. VERY generously sized, at one point four adults were all seated on the sofa, without looking squished in or cramped in the least. We saw several couples sharing the lounge chairs as well.
