We haven’t done any major renovations to our cabin yet–but we’re learning, once again, there’s so much you can do even before you dive into full renovations. And while the snow (so much snow!) is still falling in the Palisades–where our A-frame sits on the side of a steep hill–we’re focusing on those things.
The very first thing? The perfect lounge-y sectional. We decided on the Mello Taos Brown Sectional from Article for its warm, rich, easy-to-clean leather, its casual, low vibe, and the extra deep seats. Also, it was in stock and ready to ship in 3-5 days and we were expecting company up here for the holidays!
Now, we have ordered from Article before and they usually deliver in your house, and even put it in place for you. But our cabin doesn’t get deliveries–there’s a small fedex delivery box (like, a literal metal box where you can pick things up) a mile down the road. So! We had it delivered to our home where the delivery guys loaded it right into our truck and then we hauled it up a few flights of snowy stairs at the cabin.
I know what you’re thinking–from the picture, it doesn’t look like you hauled anything! In reality, I just had to grab my mittens from the truck and Chris was propping the box there waiting for me to return. But I would be lying if I said the break halfway up the stairs wasn’t a welcomed one. Lots of breaks. Lots of breaks. Once we got it inside, we had one more flight to bring it up, but were very thankful for the slim nature of this sofa.
For reference, Chris is 6’4″…and Polly is 29″. The seat is deep! The biggest question I received while sharing a few sneak peeks on Instagram over the last few weeks was about the lower back–is it comfortable?
It’s so comfortable. It’s the perfect height to rest an arm on, which feels…freeing. And when you’re not resting an arm, it just feels like a hug honestly. It hits us on the back in a very supportive spot.
And while we’re still figuring out a million other details up here–we got the lounge spot down, and that feels like a big win.
And since we feel like we won big with this one, we thought it was only fair if one of YOU won big, too. Article provided this sectional for us, and we asked them if we could score a sofa for one of our readers, as well, and they were totally on board! Details below.
