And the Heath sofa, also from West Elm:

From what I can tell, they're pretty much identical except the Heath sofa has skinnier arms and more clearance underneath. It's also 4" deeper than the Henry sofa.
Because this will be such a big purchase, we plan on making the 4 hour round trip to go look at both of the couches in store to see which one we prefer. We plan on getting the winner in their ink blue performance velvet fabric and I cannot wait! Just for fun, I put together a few mood boards of the living room I'm imagining in my head.
The first one includes two Rhys chairs from Anthropologie that I absolutely LOVE but would need to win the lottery to afford haha It also includes an industrial coffee table from Urban Outfitters (we could probably make a knock off version of this), and the super popular RANARP lamp from IKEA. Everything else shown is stuff I already own.
The layout isn't correct (the couch will face the media center and the chairs will be in front of the larger window) but the overall look is! My style has changed a ton over the years and I'm really loving the look of more masculine rooms.
The second mood board includes the same main pieces but I've switched out the Rhys chairs for these more affordable Gordon tufted chairs which are a pretty decent knock off of Restoration Hardware's Kensington leather chairs.
I also replaced the first coffee table with this antique finished coffee table from West Elm. It's gorgeous but it's also very expensive. Fun fact: I have champagne taste on a really crappy beer budget haha Anyway, the end tables are actually night stands and are also from, wait for it, West Elm!
The third mood board is a variation on the second one:
It includes the chair version of the leather couch option I showed on Monday. I like how the lines of the chair are nearly identical to the lines of the couch and I love the nailhead trim! It also includes World Market's Harley coffee table and Target's Threshold wire side tables.
None of the items shown are set in stone but I'd really like to end up with a living room that has the same aesthetic!
In case you like to compare things side-by-side like I do, here's all three boards next to each other:
Which living room do you prefer?
