Okay, not really. But which couch to buy is pretty important. 😛
So, I’ve been planning for a while to buy this couch:
The Ikea Klippan loveseat in Granan Black
But now I’m starting to think about this sofa:
The Ikea Karlstad loveseat in Blekinge white
And now I’m torn. I pretty much have to get a loveseat from Ikea, because I want something small that won’t take up to much room in my living room, something that comes apart so it will fit up the stairs to my apartment, and something CHEAP.
The Karlstad in basic white is about $150 more than the Klippan with a black cover. If I got it, I would eventually like to get a gray cover for the Karlstad, but I would have to put that off because that’s another $100 or something. But I had also been planning on getting a few big pillows to put across the back of the Klippan to make it look more like a normal sofa and less like a Scandinavian spaceship, so once I factor in the price of the pillows, the price difference is only about $100.
But I’m still torn. Do I go with the cheaper sofa that will probably keep me happy for a while (I doubt I’ll be happy with it long-term…but it’s also an Ikea sofa, so how long term would it last anyway? :-P), or the one that’s a bit more of an investment (ha ha…yeah) that looks a little more like a normal sofa and that I might be happier with for longer?
