DecoratingÂ our apartment has been both so much fun and so challenging at the same time. As someone who had never had a chance to decorate a space really before in her adult life, I wanted to make sure that we took our time and made choices that weâ€™d be happy with years from now. Moving into our first place together was by far the highlight of last year and weâ€™ve learned so much in the process.
The very first thing that we decided to look for was aÂ couch. There are certain people who just have an eye for interiors andÂ Danielle is one of them. I had heard ofÂ Interior Define through her blog and her experience was so amazing that she collaborated with them with The Everygirl, so I was curious to explore and learn more about them.
We knew that this would be the anchor of the entire room â€“ literally every other furniture and dÃ©cor decision would revolve around this one piece. We also knew that it was something we were going to spend a ton of time on and around and we wanted to love it. After seeing that the prices of â€œoff the rackâ€ couches at other furniture stores were pretty steep in terms of price and not even close to the right dimensions for our place, we realized thatÂ Interior Define was the perfect solution for us.
We had a very specific length of couch that we wanted â€“ I was set on creating a dining space and that presented a unique challenge for us. Basically the longest length that we could allow and also fit a dining room table was 79â€. Try finding a 79â€ couch is not easy! One of the main reasons we wanted to work with Interior Define was because they make it easy toÂ customize the length, style and fabric all to your liking.
I’ve shared with you guys theÂ process of us choosing a style and a fabric â€“ with the swatches itâ€™s so seamless and really helps you imagine it in person. We hit order (we chose the CaitlinÂ in plush sateen) and sat back to wait for her to arrive!
While the main difference in going this custom route is that you wonâ€™t get your couch immediately, the long term benefits of having something that is exactly what you want are worth the wait. We came up with some temporary seating and truth be told, we werenâ€™t ready to finish the space at all for months after it arrived. The other incredible part of the process is that I/D includes free white glove delivery with your order. That means the couch gets delivered right into your apartment exactly where you want it. Speaking as a New Yorker, that was huge for us!
Our Caitlin sofa arrived and we absolutely love it! We spend so much time after work hanging out together at home reading, working, or just catching up on our favorite shows.
We finally got ourÂ pillows recently (thanks again for voting!) and with our swivel chairs and coffee table our living room is complete. We love spending time at home especially after a long day and our couch is the standout piece in the room.
Iâ€™m excited to share that Iâ€™ve teamed up with Interior Define to give one lucky reader $500 towards a couch of their own! We are so thrilled to have one of you guys enjoy the I/D experience!

Hi! I”m considering ordering the Caitlyn in a corner sectional. I would love to know how your sofa has held up, and if you consider it comfy and/or sturdy enough to hold up to a family living room. Does the bench cushion sag over time? Also,which depth do you have in your Caitlyns? It’s such a big investment- I need all the opinions I can get!
Hi Amber! It has held up really well for us and the bench has been very firm over time. I can’t recall which depth but I don’t think we had a choice so I assume it was a normal/regular depth and not extra deep. Good luck with your purchase! :)
where are the swivel chairs from?
We ordered them through Scout Design Studio in Dallas!
Lincoln Park showroom is minutes from me! I need to check it out ASAP. Thanks for opening my little world up a bit more.

I love this giveaway! I have been lusting after an Interior Define sofa (specifically the Rose in Ivory) since Danielle and Alaina started working with them. Hopefully I win so I can justify replacing my West Elm sofa that is a a little too big and way too dark for my tiny San Francisco apartment.
I hear you Michelle! They’re all so gorgeous :) good luck and thanks for entering!
I hope my entries are counting. I have been entering everyday. I really love their furniture. We are buying our first home and I see a lot of great pieces that would go perfect in the house.
Hi Ashley! I’m so glad you’re excited about the giveaway. Double check and make sure your email is entered again – I was having a tiny issue at the end of last week :) good luck!
