Our Living Room Update that Changed Everything

Article Gaba sectional in Pearl White, a living room makeover (or a makeunder?!) // neutral, cozy living room via Yellow Brick Home

This post is in partnership with Article.

Our living room has shed so much weight, and yet somehow, it gained so much more seating! It started earlier this year, when I suggested to Scott that I was maybe-kind-of-sort-of feeling like we needed to lighten things up. After Lucy was born, we spent the majority of our time upstairs, bouncing between her nursery and studio-slash-living-turned-play-area. It was a habit that started to stick during the first month of her life, as a way to wind down from the day and begin our evening routine with a newborn. We would turn the lights on low, read books and, after putting Lucy down for the night, we’d stay nearby and relax to a movie (or endless Friends reruns, let’s be real).

It may seem strange, but with the exception of using our kitchen, we stopped hanging out in our main living room almost altogether. And when we did hang out on the first floor, it suddenly felt too formal. It no longer fit ‘us.’ I loved every piece on their own (we will always love you, blue sofa!), but we craved a refresh. For months, we played pretend, and we’d ask each other, What would you do different? A lighter couch, for one. Lower end tables, maybe. Could we swap out the chairs? And then I suggested the idea of a deep, low sectional. We knew that would eliminate one chair completely, but what if we could find an L-shaped sofa? And would it wrap around the room by the window, or should it separate the living and dining?

We started to collect fabric swatches from all over, and after testing wine and coffee spills on the Gaba Pearl White swatch from Article (they came right out with a spritz of water mixed with dish soap!), we were sold. We’d been eyeing the Gaba it for a while but almost counted it out – because a family with two dogs and a baby can’t possible have a cream colored sofa, right? And then we tested the fabric swatch by scraping a push pin across it (to simulate kitty claws, as one does), and it still held up. Magic fabric, we say!

The Gaba comes into three neutral colors – Pearl White, Gull Gray and Petrel Gray – with a low profile and extra deep seats, similar to our Tree House sofa! It’s modular and can be configured to fit so many needs, and after landing on a design that would include (from left to right) a left arm chair, lounge chair, corner chair, and around the bend, an additional lounge chair, we taped it out directly onto the rug to make sure it would fit. Then we excitedly placed our order with our friends at Article and counted down the handful of weeks until delivery day! Psst: The Gaba in Petrel Gray is 20% off through 12/2 as a part of their Black Friday event!

Ordering a sofa online without sitting on it first can definitely feel like a risk, but we love that Article has a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not completely thrilled with your piece, they’ll pick it up and provide a refund (less the $49 shipping charge)! Although we already own and love the Article Mello sofa for Tree House, we like having that knowledge in our back pocket – just in case. Luckily, any fears we may have had vanished at first sight; the Gaba is so handsome.

Before deciding on our final configuration, we went back and forth for a few weeks on whether the leg of the ‘L’ should back up against the window or the dining room. Because the back is low, I think we would have been fine either way, but we think the winning layout is, well, a winner! There’s plenty of room to move throughout the room (even in our skinny Chicago home), and although the Gaba is 3′ wider than the blue sofa, we cleared up an insane amount of visual clutter by eliminating our old end tables completely. The room feels so open!

The quality of our Mello sofa is top notch, so we shouldn’t have been surprised that the same is true for the Gaba. The individual pieces connect together with sturdy clips, which was on Scott’s Must List for a sectional. We would describe the seat cushions as firm, whereas the back cushions are more fluffy and soft. Because the backs are down-filled, they can be fluffed up to look perky and new, even after an hours-long move night. All the cushions – seat and back – are loose with a nice weight to them, and the covers can be zipped off, if necessary!

The fabric is thick with a soft, pearlescent sheen, and there’s enough texture in the weave to prevent it from feeling too precious. It was one of the reasons why we felt comfortable moving forward with a cream colored sofa! Our Gaba has already experienced a pet mess (or two), and just like our sample swatch, they cleaned right up with mild dish soap and water.

We also swapped in this coffee table, which we first stumbled upon in person while shopping during our anniversary trip. The top swivels away for hidden storage, and we couldn’t shake it from our minds. We purchased it online a few weeks later during a big sale, and inside, we store our remotes, coasters and toys for Lucy. I tossed these teething beads on the top, and we usually stash our instant photos on the media center! We might still put a skinny console along the back of the couch by the window, too, but it would be lower than the back of the couch.

The way we live in our home has changed so drastically, it’s almost hard to imagine this room configured any other way! We’ve been teaching Lucy how to safely get off the couch by getting on her belly and sliding down feet first, and she now thinks it’s the funniest thing in her world. She’ll wait until we’re watching and get on the couch just to slide off, and we laugh every time. There’s enough floor space to spread out and play, and the extra deep seats feel like such a lounge-y treat. We pile up the pillows and cuddle together, and it really warms our hearts to see this room being realized! It may sound silly to say, but it feels the best it ever has. (You know I’ll still be tweaking it forever though, right? Because, fun!)

    Oh man, glad I’m not the only one who simulates cat nails on fabric swatches! I always take a nail or screw and go to town on the fabric before I buy, my two are just way too enthusiastic of scratchers not to do so. I had looked at a few options from Article in the past but the swatches didn’t pass scratch test. If that off white is as good as it sounds though- ???ReplyCancel

    Looks great! For the piece in front of the window, could you leave off the back pillows to make it more like a chaise or would that look weird with the low back of the couch still there?ReplyCancel

    • Kim11.24.18 - 6:14 PM

      We could definitely do that! We actually took off the back cushion when we first got it to see how it looked, and it looked totally fine. That said, because the back cushion is still low, it doesn’t hinder the view to the outside. We like that we have the option though!ReplyCancel

We have an old house and our living room has a difficult layout. I’ve tried to local furniture stores (no success) and I’m nervous to buy something as significant as a couch without trying it fist!

    Hi Kim!

    As always, your posts come right in time :) I’ve been searching for an L shaped sectional for my parents home, this looks like a great option. How did you guys decide to go armless on the other side of the sectional? Do you ever miss having that arm rest (esp without a side table there)? Thanks and happy holidays!ReplyCancel

    • Kim11.24.18 - 6:12 PM

      We went armless to keep it more open, since it’s the first part of the room you see when you walk into our entryway. We liked that it would keep things a little more ‘light’, as if all the rooms are supposed to flow this way. :D Happy holidays to you as well!ReplyCancel

  • Emily11.26.18 - 2:52 PM

    We just bought the Stone Ottoman for our nursery! I know that sounds weird but we are doing a love seat instead of a rocker so we thought it would be nice for family cuddles! And even a nursery needs some leather, right?ReplyCancel

  • Katy11.26.18 - 3:11 PM

    Thanks for all the details about your sofa. I’m going to have to check out Article.ReplyCancel

  • Danielle11.26.18 - 3:28 PM

    Your new sofa looks perfect! I know it’s not original but my favorite is the Sven sofa.ReplyCancel

  • Katie D.11.26.18 - 3:33 PM

    Love the Sven and the Gaba. Both are dream sofas.ReplyCancel

    So many favorite articles, but I loved your post on building a backyard fire pit this weekend. I’ve been wanting to do this and your post has now inspired me to do so. Thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Gina N.11.26.18 - 8:18 PM

    I love the Tavola table. Teak is just amazing and always looks great!ReplyCancel

  • Audie11.26.18 - 8:20 PM

    It’s so hard to hard to pick a favorite-their rather sofas are so beautiful but performance fabric is what we would needReplyCancel

  • maryann colucci11.26.18 - 8:54 PM

    It hard to decide by I like the black swivel chair & the sofa!ReplyCancel

  • Rebecca Orr11.27.18 - 3:08 AM

    I was checking out their clearance/sale section. I love the Matrix Claret Red Chair! The fabric looks so soft and lush. It would be perfect in the bedroom! I also love the Oscuro Black Cart. It would be perfect for a few bottles of our favorite liquor and some glasses to serve it in!ReplyCancel

  • Mara11.27.18 - 6:11 AM

    So pretty! I’m into a couch you don’t have to vacuum underReplyCancel

  • Cheryl Larimer11.27.18 - 7:28 AM

    Love that sofa. You really did a great job in making a bright living room but making it look cozy at the same time. I’m eying the Ansa bench on their website – it would fit right in with our current style.ReplyCancel

  • Maria11.27.18 - 8:26 AM

    I’ve been eyeing Article’s Embrace rocking chair!ReplyCancel

  • Shauna | MyPineconeHome11.27.18 - 11:15 AM

    I’ve been lusting over the Sven Charme Tan Right Sectional Sofa for far too long to redo our living room! I’m envious of your new look. It looks so cozy!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah11.27.18 - 11:23 AM

    We have been in the market for a sectional and love this option. Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Alanna11.27.18 - 7:15 PM

    I want the Melo sofa so bad. I think leather works best for dogs, and I love the classic yet modern look of it. Your new sofa has really transformed your space!ReplyCancel

  • Twinkle Gloria Lam11.28.18 - 6:53 AM

    I love that you gave this the pet test (kitty claws included), which makes me hopeful that we won’t always have to choose between ragged furniture or our furry family members!ReplyCancel

  • Twinkle11.28.18 - 6:54 AM

    So happy that you “kitty-claw” tested this as I thought I’d never see the day that you could have stylish (light-colored!) furniture and a bevy of pets!ReplyCancel

  • Audra H11.28.18 - 10:39 AM

    Such a good change for this room! I wouldn’t have necessarily thought to add in a bigger sofa, but it’s totally working. The Gaba is my new “desire” piece.ReplyCancel

  • Caitlin D11.28.18 - 10:47 AM

    I love the look of article pieces. They look so great in both of your homes! I’d love the Alcott Rain Cloud Gray Sofa. It’d look perfect.ReplyCancel

    Just bought my mm m first home, so much inspiration here!!ReplyCancel

  • Cindy11.28.18 - 10:59 AM

    Love. Do you find it too low? Is it hard to get up from sitting?ReplyCancel

    • Kim11.28.18 - 11:15 AM

      The seat itself isn’t much lower than typical height, but the back is lower, giving the overall illusion of a lower couch… if that makes sense! It’s super deep, so it invites you to curl up. But we have a lot of pillows on the couch so if you wanted to sit straight up, you could rest a pillow behind your back (say, if you’re having a formal conversation and don’t want to get too smooshy into the couch, haha).ReplyCancel

  • Laura11.28.18 - 11:02 AM

    My husband and I have been looking for a new coffee table for our living room, and one of their Amoeba coffee tables would be perfect!ReplyCancel

  • Danielle C11.28.18 - 11:08 AM

    I love that Gaba sofa – looks so deep and comfy and love a round coffee table with it. I love the Article Mara Walnut Coffee Table – I’d even love to nest it with the Mara Walnut Side Table too (Drool!)ReplyCancel

  • Mackenzie11.28.18 - 11:38 AM

    We have an Article sectionals sofa and walnut dining table, both of which I love (we have two cats and two babies, and or Article furniture has held up to both). My husband has had his eye on the Oscuro desk for quite some time. We’d love to add it to our collection!ReplyCancel

  • Alexandra11.28.18 - 11:43 AM

    The couch is beautiful but I got sticker shock on the price of that coffee table. Yikes! Seems like a lot for a small to medium sized table! But I do love the storage aspect.ReplyCancel
