another step in the right direction

we went to buy our bathroom tile this past saturday. again, for the third time, we left the store without making our huge tile purchase. but this time it wasn't because of money. we were advised to have a meeting with the guy who will be laying the tile before we make the purchase - to make sure we are ordering all of the pieces he needs to install everything correctly. i mean, this isn't tile laying on home depot's shelf so i think this was great advice!
so .... since we were on that side of town we decided to stop by a couple of other stores. and we ended up buying a couch. very spur-of-the-moment. it was at a local furniture outlet store so it was a good deal. the same couch we've looked at for years but half off since it was a floor model.
we're so excited we finally purchased grown-up living room furniture!! we've been relaxing on my parent's 20 year old ethan allen couch i used in college. granted, still a great couch, but very cream/blue/peach (can anyone say 1980?) and very flowery and well, not ours.
(now if i can just work on getting rid of those 15 year old hand-me-down ikea tables.)

Sweet couch! Can I ask which furniture stores y'all like locally? I've just moved to Irvington from out of town and am not sure where to find good stuff and/or find a deal. Thanks!
