New Sectional!

Yay! We can finally seat more than 2 people comfortably in front of our tv! I'm quite proud of myself, particularly because this is one of only two sectionals I found anywhere that fit in this space. Seriously... anything from DWR to Ikea did not fit. Not only does this one fit perfectly, it's also a durable bi-cast leather (the Klippan was too, so we know the dogs handle it well).

It's the modular sectional from Target online (currently on sale, free shipping, and it can be returned if you don't like it!). It's simple, sleek, modern, and small-scale. Better yet- the seats even come up for storage underneath- and who doesn't need more storage? It also blocks the nest of cords under Jesse's desk from view- an added bonus!

...And sorry it took so long to unveil the contents of those boxes, but the basement has been a demolition area while we unpacked & assembled it. :) The coffee table is a recent craigslist find that's currently primed and ready to be finished- more on that later!



Awesome find! It looks wonderful! I was curious what was in those boxes. Never guessed furniture lol

You'll have to let us know how the furniture from target wears. I would think it isn't as long lasting as some place, but you never really know. Looks great!

I'll definitely keep you guys updated Bethany- I'm sure it won't be 'heirloom' quality, but it was literally the only option! (the only other one that fit was much cheaper material and more expensive).

I've always been very happy with the Ikea furniture we've gotten (our leather Klippan has held up great!), and this sectional seems pretty similar to a lot of the ikea stuff (or frankly any of those other big-box style furniture stores). We also have 2 barstools from Target that seem very similar to this- they've held up very well for the 2.5 years we've had them!

Plus- it was super affordable compared to higher end stuff!


Great job! I'm moving this summer and my boyfriend and I have no idea if his couch will fit out of the door, let alone into a new apartment.


what a great find! It looks perfect!

Isn't it just so much fun when you do actually find a piece that fits your space. :) T.


that's such a great sectional and it fits perfectly in the space both aesthetically and physically. Sectional's are the best, aren't they? nice score!


finally get to see what was in those boxes!


Love the color scheme!

Thank you SO much for this post. We have been looking for a sectional with no luck, it didn't even occur to me to look at Target. Thanks, Tess!
