First things first in choosing the sofa, I picked the style I liked, an English Roll Arm. Then I measured my space and starting shopping around to test comfort and fabrics. Hoping from Pottery Barn to Bassett to Restoration Hardware, back to Pottery Barn and Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, I finally found the perfect fabric at MG+BW. The catch - their English Roll Arm was too big and only came with a tight back. A 80" English Roll Arm is what I needed for my space and I had decided I liked a booth bench with bed pillows on the back. Through a fabric process that got me as close to Goldilocks as I can imagine, Bassett was my best option to try to find a fabric close to the one I liked. Feeling pretty deflated, I pulled together my three favorite fabrics - two from MW+BG on the left and the right and one from Bassett in the middle - and decided to take yet another trip outside the perimeter to Bassett.
