The Great Furniture Debate: Is NOT over. Crap.

Hey guys remember this post when I was SOSO excited I ordered a couch and I was in love with it and couldn’t wait to get the gorgeous furniture delivered…

WELL you are not even going to believe this…the furniture gods were like LOLNO
Because I got a call that my couch is no longer being manufactured!

Me right now...

I'm not kidding--this is how my conversation with the furniture store went:

Furniture salesman: Sorry to tell you this Trina, but the couch you ordered is not being manufactured by Lane anymore. Lane canceled the order we placed.
Me: *Puts the phone on mute, screams...unmute* Are you serious? Why?
Salesman: Well Lane has laid-off a lot of employees. They are downsizing quite a bit.
Me: Well, ok…what else can you suggest that is similar to this style that I can look at tomorrow?
Salesman: Hm well, we get new stuff in all the time! Check back in a few months!

Um hello? I have money to spend on a very nice couch. I even have cash. You have couches. Can you sell me a couch please?…that they still manufacture. Preferably.

Seriously. Back to square one…for the third time. I am on the couch hunt. Again. 
This is getting exhausting.

Have you ever heard someone have such bad couch karma? 
Someone sell me a couch!

  1. You do look quite grumpy in your photo.

    Not helping?

    Sorry about the couch. I'd be horribly upset too. First world problems are very hard. Have you tried Ethan Allen? I swear by our couches. They are just as comfortable now as they were 5 years ago!

  3. Okay, I'm seriously pissed off on your behalf. But I have a really trashy couch that's ready for the curb...I'd be happy to put your name on it. It's really comfy.... :P

  5. OH. MY. GOSH. Seriously, HOW is this happening?!?!?! Obviously, the couch meant to be in your home just hasn't been found yet. There has to be a reason for all of this ridiculousness. So sorry for your troubles, friend!!

  11. Take a trip to Good's Furniture in Kewanee. Make a weekend of it and stay at their bed & breakfast and eat at their Wine Cellar. They have a ton of furniture lines to choose from. ;-) I can sell you an ugly one if that helps you out!
