I'm considering a patterned sofa.
The more I think about a sofa with a pattern in our living room, the more I think it's the way to go.
Yes, I know it's a bit trendy right now. But I also don't care. ;-) Everyone thought I was totally crazy (10 years ago) when I bought a yellow sofa. I'm still not sick of it.
So why don't I keep our yellow sofa with green piping?
Let me count the ways.
1) It's literally coming apart at the seams.
2) It has gotten so gross (and yes, we have had it cleaned) that I'm actually embarrassed to have people over.
3) The green piping has faded so much that it looks dirty beige.
4) It's literally coming apart at the seams. Oh, did I already mention that?
I was originally thinking of another white slipcovered sofa because I LOVE a slipcover for a family with boys, but I'm nervous that I will miss my bold sofa. I don't necessarily want another yellow sofa, so a pattern just seems like the natural fit.
Here are a few more examples I loved:
especially this fig leaf pattern:
If all else fails, I could always go with leopard print.
But truly, I'm thinking a botanical, leafy green, would be great.
Here is the expensive version:
Here is a more affordable version. I'm ordering a sample...

Do you think I've lost my mind? Or would you go for the pattern? My mind is made-up, but I am always curious what you would be willing to try in your own home.
