I have narrowed it down to a few, out of dozens I have looked at but I still can not decide... I love a mix of modern and traditional, transitional I assume. I also love nail-head, lol...

Please help. Top picks so far. All around 2K or a tad higher

Restoration Hardware

Mitchell Gold

CR Laine


Ferguson Copeland Front

Ferguson Copeland Back

Here is an idea of whats going on in there so far

More than likely it will be upholstered in a gray or stone fabric.

I think it depends on what you're going to use the sofa for...

With just the photos to go on, I'd think the Ferguson works as a nice sofa to read, watch tv, or stretch out in. The C.R. Laine is more of a fashion statement.

RE: Please help me pick a sofa!!!

From a use standpoint, will you ever want to lie on it with your head slightly elevated? If so, the Precendent and Ferguson would be best. (the MGBW sofa has no arm essentially and the RH sofa arm is too tall).

Many people do not like sitting on sofas or deep chairs that are armless which rules out MGBW Marlena.

I like all of them, I don't love the peak on the arm of the CR Laine sofa. The Ferguson has an interesting back if that is going to be visible.

RE: Please help me pick a sofa!!!

I really like the Marlena for your house. The swoop of the arms looks like the curve in the arms of your chairs.

Those are some beautiful sofas you get to choose!

RE: Please help me pick a sofa!!!

Ferguson or Marlena, definitely. If you use it like we do (lying down on it to watch TV, the shorter arms will be more comfy with throw pillows to lean on. I do like the legs on the Mitchell, though. So if I was picking btw the Marlena and Mitchell, I'd choose the Mitchell for me.

Ok, so now I want to know which you went with. We are considering a CR Laine and wanted to find out if you chose that one, and how you liked it? THanks!
