we are on the look out for a new sofa. we found one that we absolutely adore at crate and barrel. of course, it's not within our budget in the foreseeable future SO, i am prowling around trying to find a cute one that we can afford. i saw one at macy's online that would be great, but we haven't gone up there to let it audition. here's the c and b for $1600. and the macy's for $700. there's no doubt in my mind that you're paying for a better looking sofa, but i'm just being realistic. the one from macy's is nice looking and if it's comfy we might actually be able to get it within the next few months.
