New furniture

Our furniture in the livingroom needed replacement.
The couch (Montis WK-Elan) was not too bad, but there was that first torn in the seam. Frank's chair was worse (Montis Loge) worn out leather and there was a hole in the arm that got bigger and bigger. But not surprising, we bought them 17 years ago.
We looked at possible re-furnishing, but the leather alone is very expensive.

So here the last photo of the couch, Chimays favourite place:

and the last time Gladdich is looking out of the window on the red chair:

The past weeks we were looking around on the Marktplaats site (a bit like Ebay, but of Dutch origin and with different rules) and we found a big, ten year old, blue Leolux couch. With a matching table, the one Frank always liked in the days we roamed design furniture shops.

After we bought the couch and table, we found that our old furniture was worth some money too, a re-furnishing business bought them. We are getting handy in second hand trading ;-)

Chimay and Gladdich are not too fond of change, so the new couch was inspected first with wary faces. But within a day they found out not all change is bad, here Chimay on the new couch:

and Gladdich finds the new couch very comfortable:
