I've been griping about my husband's recliner for the duration of our marriage. Not because I'm a total nag. Not even because it's ugly (which, compared to the average puffy brown ultra-suede number, it is not). I gripe about it because a recliner has always meant that we can't sit together.
My husband wants the recliner because he has back pain. I can understand that. I sit in it when he's out of town and it's quite comfortable. I have always pined for a reclining sofa, but the options I've seen tend to be, well, hideous. They have built-in cup holders. Enough said.
Now I finally have a viable option for reclining and togetherness. Crib Candy featured this amazingly beautiful leather reclining sofa available in 16 colors! It is available as a 1, 2, and 3 seater. I couldn't find a price on the iqmatics site that sells this piece (don't you hate that!), but my guess is I'd have to save up for quite a while to afford one of these.
