The Work-Life Bowl

I don’t know if this belongs in this bowl but dunno who else to ask - I’m about to upgrade my furniture for the first time ever and am going to buy a sectional, light gray or neutral. Love the mid century modern look + deep seat cushions. I don’t want to wait 6-9 weeks for a custom one like most of West Elm. Where should I buy?

    Interview

    Personable and creative. Initial Group interview which then turned to individual interviews after. They were drawn to your interaction with the other interviewees. They took time to get to know you during the interview which was nice.
