Am I Crazy?

I am about to go purchase 2 Settees for my living room and they are white..... They are off-white, maybe ecru to be fair....but still white! ....Am I nuts?

They are gorgeous and they come with a stain warranty- which is nice. But I worry because I am starting to have kids and wonder if I am setting myself up for disaster. My family room, where we'll spend the most time has a sturdy brown microfiber big comfy couch, and these will be more for chatting and sitting by the fire, and Big Guy is so sold on them he won't even look at anything else- and they are GORGEOUS.....

Am I crazy?

I love ecru sofas. I say go for it. It's not in the room where you will spend most if your time with the new little one.

Naw, you should get them. You're already recognizing the possibility for stainage, so you shouldn't be too disappointed if it happens. I think it can also be a lesson in personal responsibility for your children (when they are old enough), that they have to respect certain objects that you've chosen to make your family room look nice. I hope that makes sense, even if it is a little bit down the line for you. I think kids really appreciate when parents/adults give them a little responsibility and believe in them.

Just do it, you will be so excited about it! And, if there is a stain warranty, then go for it!!

Yes, you are crazy. Here are two more words for you....grape popsicles. Actually, I don't let my kids eat all over the house, but you also don't want to be nervous when you have adult guests in that room and may be serving food and drinks there. Just my .02!
