I am so happy that I finally made the leap and got a white colored couch! I replaced an old black one and I have only ever had black couches. Of course, there is a little more upkeep -- I mean you have to be more aware of spilling things on it and be wary of stains, but overall, not such a problem if youre neat like I am and the change in my living room has been well worth it! Opens up the space like you wouldnt believe! Just gorgeous!
