I can't believe it took me so long to commit to a new Jonathan Louis sectional sofa. It has added a lot of comfort and joy to our nightly and weekend family hangs. I am grateful for how this change made a big impact.

I had been putting off getting a new sectional for our den for far too long. I rarely get attached to any piece of furniture, but the saddle leather sectional had a hold over me. We bought it for our previous home, when my living room was smaller and my children were toddlers. It was a perfect fit then. I was in denial that the orientation of the chaise was always wrong for our current den and that the sectional was too small now that my children are tweens. A few rips in the seams and breaks in the springs later and I was finally able to admit it was time for a new sectional after many years of loving our leather wonder.

I had been wanting to work with Jonathan Louis ever since our missed connection during my stress inducing One Room Challenge of Spring '20. A national furniture brand that feels like a smaller family run operation, local to Los Angeles. Jonathan Louis furniture is made to order (less waste!) and their employees are caring. They offered me the chance to design my own piece via their Design Lab but I found exactly what I was looking for with the Raine L-sectional.

Alec insisted on a higher back seat (no low slung designs please. I had to listen to my #1 client). I wanted something extra plush, deep, cushioned, and comfortable. A sofa my kids would agree to cuddle with me on. I liked that the Raine hinted at midcentury styling that fit with my home's post and beam architecture with its wood cone legs and track arms.

For the fabric, I got to choose from hundreds of options. After reviewing a half dozen sample requests, I selected the linen-look Bennett fabric in the neutral beigey Almond color. I knew it could stand up to the kids and the dog. Then the good people at Jonathan Louis insisted I get pillows made from the other fabrics I reviewed and liked. I went fuzzy! I went round! It was great fun.

I styled the larger scale of the sofa with a thick vintage rug and vintage chunky travertine coffee table. The layers of browns and the mix of old and new create a perfectly cozy and stylish spot.

We have been appreciating both the comfort to be together and the space to not be on top of each other with our new Jonathan Louis sectional, especially during the past holiday season. We also found its a great piece to host little soirees. Its handsome structured look dresses up well when people are over for small celebrations.

Thank you Jonathan Louis! You spoiled me.
