Russ Herschelmann at SGHT always says that, when designing your home theater, you should begin with the seats. Yesterday, my wife and I received our Christmas present, a beautiful new couch, which replaces an embarrassingly ratty remnant from our undergrad days. I can't believe I've hit the age when I can get so excited about a couch, but this is a sweet couch. Very contemporary with clean lines, it is also incredibly comfortable. It was waiting for me when I got home last night, so, in typical guy fashion, the first thing I did was take off my shoes and fall asleep on it.
