It’s getting so close to move-in day for my sister and me!  We move to our new Back Bay apartment on September 1 — Labor Day.  And I haven’t even begun to pack…

We’ve been searching for a sleeper sofa for our place.  However, it’s difficult because we’re living in a two-bed split.  There’s a small foyer (we’re putting our dining table and chairs in it), a small (not eat-in) kitchen, a decent-sized bathroom and two bedrooms.  Hers is about 10′ by 10′ with a bay window; mine is about 10 ‘ by 15’.

Because of this, we need to put the sofa in my bedroom, along with my queen-sized bed, TV and other furniture.  It’s going to be quite a challenge!

We have no furniture other than beds, desks and dressers, so we went with our mom to Jordan’s Furniture in Reading tonight to check out sleeper sofas.  We tried out several of them.

And, fittingly, we began to pose amusingly with them.

Here are the best pics:


Be an animal!

Yeah, I don’t know.

We’re probably going to be spending a LOT of time in this position.

My mom had Sars lie down — she’s 5’9″ — so that she could use her as a unit of measurement.  Of course, right after, she checked the dimensions that were printed on the label.

This is how this sexy sofa makes me feel.

Sars: “I wonder if this one comes with the roofies or if you have to buy them separately.”

Here are three that we liked:

Well, at least I liked this modern one.  It’s crazy expensive, and Sars would kill me if I got it for our place!

We loved this little pumpkin one, and it was so comfortable, but it wasn’t made very well and the material looked like it wouldn’t hold up for the long term.

This is the one that we liked the most so far.  The only thing is that I don’t think it will work with my color pallette.  I have a big brass bed and I was planning on decorating my room in cream and gold with lilac and black accents.  A red couch really doesn’t fit into that.

Of course, all of these can come upholstered in a different fabric, but that will take a long time and be more expensive.

Well, we’ve got time to look.  Any thoughts?
