My oldest son recently bought a beach house that he rents out by the week.
He wanted to increase the number of people the property sleeps and was looking for a pull-out couch.
I happened to have a sleeper couch that I was willing to give him. The couch was in like-new condition. I simply wasn’t happy with the size or color of it. I immediately started looking for a new couch. I checked all of the local furniture stores and browsed online. I couldn’t find anything I liked. I finally came across the website of a custom furniture shop. I was hoping for an L-shaped piece, and this site allowed me to determine the exact size of my new couch. I was able to specify the length, width and height. I also had the ability to choose the style of the design, type legs, fabric and color. I also designed a matching ottoman and a complimentary swivel chair. I was really excited to order a couch made to my preferences. Since my son was eager to get my former couch set up at his beach house, he came and picked it up right away. This left me with a fairly empty living room. Without the couch, I had hardly any seating. Since the custom furniture shop was making the pieces from scratch, I needed to wait six months for it to arrive. I ended up bringing folding camp-chairs into the house. They weren’t overly attractive or comfortable, but better than nothing. I was very anxious for the new custom furniture to arrive.
